So far, this is the very best electric blanket I have ever purchased, and I have purchased quite a few. It is very soft and cozy and heavier than any I have had before. Very warm even when not turned on. I haven't had it that long so do not know how long it will last. But I am very satisfied so far! I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Originally purchased a king size blanket for the master bedroom, and loved it so much I purchased the queen size for one of our guest bedrooms. As I washed each blanket before laying out on the beds, I cannot honestly say whether or not they shrank. I do know, however, that each blanket is large enough to tuck at least 8" under the bottom and there is a 9"+ overhang on each side. (This is great, as other full/queen blankets purchased in the past had very little 'extra' to tuck under after washing.)
Love the feel and texture...so soft and does not easily snag as most cotton blankets will.
My son moved to west coast and with the change in weather there he wanted an electric blanket and after much searching for something comfortable and reading the reviews on this one, I decided to purchase. Glad I did, he loves it. Super soft and doesn't look like other electric blankets I've purchased in the past.
This is a very high quality blanket. The fabric is soft and luxurious--no crinkley sound. The down is very evenly distritbuted, and overall it is very nicely finished. I'm putting it inside a duvet cover, but it would look nice on it's own. It's the perfect weight for Palm Springs winters, and the king size is very generous. I had just ordered and returned another blanket for the same price from a major name brand down compay that was very poor quality--thin, stiff fabric and unevenly distributed down--some squares were empty, and messy stitching. I've owned lots of Eddie Bauer products (clothing, shoes, coats, down comforter, feather pillows, etc.) and have never been disappointed in the quality. Too bad the company quit making these blankets. I'm glad I got one!
Hoping to find a light-weight down blanket that i didn't need to throw off in the middle of the night for being just too warm, and one that wasn't terribly expensive, my research led me to this one and I am so pleased that it has done exactly as i had wanted. At times it reminds me of "Goldilocks" when she finally found the bed that was "just right". I finally found my down blanket that is "just right". I would have given it 5 stars however it does make that crinkle sound often found with down blankets.
During the night, I often get hot flashes, so it’s important that I use the best bedding that will enable me to sleep comfortably. This blanket is another great product that is designed to provide comfort each night. I love waking up in the morning feeling so refreshed and relaxed.
I really love the look of this. I purchased the coordinating shams and I am really pleased with the quality of these items. I purchased the white one and it has a very clean and crisp look to it. As other reviews have stated, this blanket is perfect as a comforter topper or as a stand alone blanket in the summer. Very happy with this purchase and would do so again if it became necessary.
This blanket seems to be the perfect weight and being able to wash an item partially made of wool is very convenient. It did arrive with a smell that sometimes happens when things are shipped from overseas but with two washes it was just fine. I chose to let it air dry to keep the shape nice and noticed the care instructions indicated no heat . It is a great fit, color, price and does what it says about not being too heavy/light. My husband and I sleep at different temperatures so it really solves for that!
I bought this blanket in grey as a gift for my daughter, she and I spent many hours searching for a quilt/coverlet/blanket that fit a California King size bed and also had a decent drop, this blanket fit the bill perfectly. It's beautiful, soft, well constructed and washed up very nicely. For the quality, price and appearance you'd have a hard time doing better. Overstock's quick shipping was very impressive as well, all in all a great purchase.
I was skeptical as to how well it would work and how the coils would feel on my feet. I usually like the bed super warm when i get into it so my feet are immediately lathered in the heat. I set the preheat about 45 minutes before going to bed. That way I have another 15 minutes of the continued high heat to really warm my feet. Then it automatically goes to the maintenance heat number which I keep pretty low and I never have to touch it again. I hardly feel the coils in the blanket and now, after a few weeks in the bed, I really don't feel it at all. I had tried one of the blankets where when touching the blanket on the outside the blanket did not feel warm. This is so much better as you can get the feeling of not having very much heat at the low levels but can also reach much warmer levels if you choose to. I cannot wait to get into bed each night.
We recently replaced the original Vellux blankets that had finally begun to fall apart (after 15 yrs of use). Purchased a cotton Vellux blanket and this one. We love both, but this is the favorite blanket in our home- had to purchase five more! Everyone wanted their own, with a spare to use as a throw. Soft, washes well, and used at home and in the car on our trips.
We first came across these down blankets in Europe last Fall and loved them, so we were delighted to find them on Overstock. They keep us cozy and warm without the usual bulk of down comforters. As mentioned by a couple of other reviewers, there was a subtle and the blanket had a not-so-pleasant smell when we first used it and it made a bit of a crinkly sound, but the odor disappeared after a few weeks and the crinkliness is really minimal . My only objection - and it's a minor one - is the color; I bought the blanket in sage and it's so pale a shade that it adds almost no color to the room.
I adore goose down and will only sleep on it. I bought this blanket because my comforter was too warm. This is a perfect temperature for me in the northeast, in a well-heated building. I also like the blanket because you can tuck it in and it looks very neat on the bed. No, it doesn't loft as much as a goose down comforter, but it has all my musts; box construction, 100% cotton cover (300 thread count; more than most down blankets), 600 fill power (more than most down blankets) and is goose (not duck which is heavier and not as warm) down. The Overstock price was the best around and I did a lot of research.I read the review that said it had an odor when it arrived, I did not notice this.
Out of the package it was soft, looked great and I was excited to have saved so much money over name brands. HOWEVER... It was pretty thin and after a month it was pretty much pilled all over. Not a deal breaker but not so great to look at either. Still, it feels great but I don't keep it on top of bed. I actually like to use this as a "sheet" in the winter with a proper sheet and down comforter on top. Cashmere is much more breathable and will help regulate your body temperature throughout the night. Another suggestion (if you care).. Cashmere (and other fine wools) need to washed to keep them hydrated. It also gives it a nicer, softer hand. Just don't put in the dryer or you'll have a throw instead of a King Size blanket!!
After having tried many blankets of various fibers and weights this is not your typical cotton fiber blanket whether open-weaved or not. It feels like the finest densely brushed cashmere with a nice bound border. However, it was stiff and fairly heavy out of the package unlike an all acrylic or the current microfiber variety costing half the price. A first cold washing and gentle drying before using is highly recommended to soften and fluff up with absolutely no pilling or lint collected. This high quality blanket is near if not equivalent to the warmth of a wool blanket but without the itch. And if layered, it provided the added warmth in the coldest of nights. I ordered the white color and put over it a red throw in keeping with the winter holiday decor. This European 50/50 luxury fiber blanket is the perfect quality for the price paid.
We are using this blanket for light year-round warmth and will layer as needed. It's very soft and not "crunchy" sounding at all. Simple, elegant, and a great value. I did a lot of research before this purchase, many other stores charge twice as much for a similar product.
Please note the king size is in fact larger than the queen (the dimensions are listed incorrectly on Overstock). The blanket is a good weight, lighter than a full comforter but still very warm. Because this is is all cotton and down (no polyester), it's considerably better at regulating temperature than many other comforter/blankets.
We replaced a wonderful, very soft merino wool blanket but after 5-6 years of use, it was pilling and shedding. The Pendleton weave is tighter with little or no loose wool fibers, also lightweight, very warm and comfortable for sleeping. The instructions note "warm before using, line dry" -- yes but we found that the blanket can be dried on very low heat. It just will take a while.
We have been suffering from night sweats and finally broke down and bought a new blanket that is only cotton. What a difference! The breathability and lightness of the cotton is perfect and you can still wrap yourself with the blanket and feel secure. Highly recommend for stuffy bedrooms and sufferers of night sweats.
I bought two of these for glamping in our state park cabins during the winter months this blanket layered inside the Grizzly 2 person sleeping bag kept me snug as a bug. It was also great as a wrap whilst sitting by the fire with a glass of bourbon
After research ALL of the different electric blankets, I determined this was the better one for me. It was not the cheapest, but all of the other brands did not do what I wanted the blanket to do. One issue with some of the other brands, was for king size, there was about a 10 inch "dead zone" in the middle of the king size blanket, where there were no coils or heat. I did not like that. Another problem was so many bad reviews on the cheaper ones, especially not lasting for one season or sometimes one month without needing replacement. Another major shortfall with ALL of the other brands was that the reviews complained the electric cords from the bottom of the bed to the controls were not long enough which resulted in the controls being pulled of the night stand. This blanket has extra long cords and that has not been a problem with this blanket. This blanket gets plenty warm and I keep it on 3 out of 10 and it warms up fast. You don't need a prewarming function. This blanket is warm within minutes. The wires are very thin and don't show in the blanket and the blanket feels like a normal soft blanket and not a blanket of stiff hard wires, which the cheaper ones do. You get your money's worth here, which is what I wanted.
This seems to be a fairly good quality. I immediately washed and dried it and it came out a little wrinkled, but okay - I'm sure the wrinkles will smooth out with use. The covering material wasn't as silky as the one I'm replacing (which I also ordered from Overstock about 5 years ago), but I think it will get softer with time. I love down blankets rather than comforters because they can be used year-round. It does have "that crinkly" sound when the blanket is being moved, but I sort of like that sound so I'm fine with that (my first down blanket has the same sound but a little softer now due to being washed many times throughout the years). The color is a true white and the binding is a nice white satin. All in all I believe it's a good purchase.
So I've had this blanket a while ago and I'm finally giving my review. First of all this is a super soft blanket and it feels so cozy. Beside the obvious that it's a warm blanket. My favorite part of the blanket is that it washes so well! I wash my blankets often because even though this is a Queen size blanket, I keep in on my couch so me and my husband and dog can snuggle on it together. Anyway because when I cook and my living room is next to the kitchen the blanket starts to smell like food. So that's why I was it often. I love this blanket it's so comforting!
This is a very nice and good quality down blanket. Gave it 4 stars because I had to
return it due to the uneven distribution of the feathers in the baffle boxes. Lot were bunched on the outsides and little in half of the top.
