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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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
I have had a lot of guests over and they always grab this blanket. They don't know it is silk, but the feel is great. I have put it in the washing machine and it has lost it's silk luster but it is still a very nice texture. It is a bit pricy but this is blanket I plan to keep till the end. I wish it didn't pill when I wash it though.
Our light down blanket was too warm on our memory foam mattress. We were sweating at night unless it was really really cold.I bought the king blanket in the grey - it is a very soft pretty color, and quite large, even on our cal king mattress. Which means there is plenty to tuck in. It is cooler than the down, but still warm. I have added a very thin quilt on the coldest nights (my husband doesn't need the extra layer). I don't know how it will be in the summer yet, and I haven't washed it yet. But so far I am very pleased with it.
I am pleased with the Beautyrest heated blanket.Tho I live in a warm climate the nights are cool. Rather than have the heat too high I can use my blanket. I have found it to be soft and cozy.The fleece material is more resilient than my older model.
I especially love the Preheat setting. The bed is nicely warmed then automatically turns to whatever number i have chosen.
My cats are also enjoying the extra warmth! I was glad to choose the lovely light blue color which is one of my favorites.Another good and safe feature is the 10 hour automatic shutoff.I have timed this and it seems to be accurate.I am hoping to be using this blanket for many seasons. I can say I'd gladly buy another . People who are told to have the room temperature lowered can do so but still feel warm enough in bed.The wires are more flexible than in older blankets.That also aids in the coziness factor.I am enjoying my blanket and think others would agree!
