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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Got this as a thank you gift.....haven't given it yet, but I really like the color and look and the quality is there....gift has been given since my first post...the receiver of the gift loves the blanket....will be a warm welcome for the winter season...
