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.
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.
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 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.
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.
I have never written a review and i buy online all the time. this blanket came directly from the baby jesus. buy it if you get hot. im starting a band called mentopause blanket because of this. the 100% cotton is perfect. so soft. really really soft. the color is AMAZING.
I ordered 3 different colors and sizes in this blanket. The ivory is my favorite and looks gorgeous, The charcoal is nice, but nearly black. The camel color is very beige and unappealing visually. All of the blankets are very heavy, but so soft and cozy. Amazingly, they don't make you sweat like other fleece-type blankets--just warm you. No pilling noticed after the last 3 months of use. I really love wrapping myself in these after a long day as the fabric has a soothing feeling. I sleep like a baby when using the queen size Ivory one. The two twins are used when resting on the livingroom sectional. Perfect for a New England winter.
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.
This blanket is soft and perfect as far as how it feels. That I'm in love with. The downfalls are that it has snagging possibilities (had to tie 4 snags closed before even washing), it also shrinks down about 1 size, even washing on cold, drying on low until damp and then hanging until dry. Will be keeping it for the comfort, just hoping it lasts long.
