      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!

    • The first blanket was so nice I bought a second...

      Option: White - Queen | bold blue - Queen

      Due to my fibromyalgia, I can get very hot or cold in bed, which disturbs my sleep and aggravates my condition even more. I bought this blanket hoping hoping what the manufacturer said about the temperature control was true. Boy, was it! I've used this blanket in both cool and very cool conditions and found it extremely comfortable. It's not what I would call a warm blanket. It keeps me warm enough to sleep comfortably yet cool enough to avoid night sweats. As a matter of fact, I haven't had a night sweat since I bought this blanket! I'm buying another because the memory foam mattress pad I sleep on can radiate heat upward, and I plan to use the second blanket between my fitted sheet and the pad to help me keep cool. As far as negatives go, the only thing I can think of is that the blanket is a little scratchy (from the wool) but not enough to bother me. Also, the pattern/texture runs horizontally on the queen instead of vertically, so it looks strange if you use it as a top blanket.

    • Okay but...

      Option: Natural - Queen

      I was excited to get this blanket after reading the description and the reviews. It shed horribly when I got it so I washed it as someone suggested. I also used the air only cycle on the dryer and finished drying by hanging it over the banister. After 2 washes it still is shedding and forming pills. It also still has a very synthetic/plastic smell despite being washed and on the bed for months. For the cost, I am disappointed. It is a warm enough blanket but the quality is less then I would have hoped.

    • A great washable wool blanket.

      Option: Natural - King

      I am always on the lookout for a washable wool blanket. I try to dry clean as little as possible. This blanket is now my 3rd. It is warm enough for winter and it could stay on the bed for summer if you want to layer. The outlast fabric is what keeps it in shape, I have had no pilling to speak of, and it washes up great. I do tumble it on very low heat and then hang it just to be safe, but it is a great little blanket.

    • awesome blanket it regulates temperature

      This blanket has saved my sanity. My second purchase of this blanket to be used as a gift. I never slept well due to being either too hot or too cold-never a good nights sleep. My first night using it I slept through the night and woke rested the next day. I would highly recommend these OUTLAST products. A little expensive but, worth the money!.

      Warm! Yet light weight...can't believe it. This blanket replaced our electric blanket, and it is just as warm but not as bulky. I don't know how it was NASA inspired, but our body heat warms the blanket, and it stays warm. You can feel the heat radiate throughout. Amazing. Well worth the money.

      This works as a second blanket and I expect that it will wash well. I do wish that the chevron pattern went vertically rather than horizontally as it does. The feel is a bit rough but I can live with it.

      I'm glad I bought this on Overstock and didn't pay full price because the blanket is really thin and not warm at all. On the plus side, I like the color and it's not itchy.

      Option: Natural - Queen | Prairie Green - Full

      Soft and warm, and a lot longer than I expected so it hangs over a lot and makes the bed hard to make. Also, I'm used to stiffer wool blankets that don't stretch. The stretchiness makes it hard to make the bed

    • Nice Wool Blanket

      Does it smell when you first get it...yeah a little. Washed three times in a row and tumbled dry. Lots of lint in washer and dryer BUT no real shedding afterwards. Nice soft temperature regulating blanket. Nice weight; not too heavy or too light. I'm very happy with this blanket. I would buy again.

      This item performs as stated- keep warm, keep cool, but it sheds constantly. I really cannot recommend it.

      Like other reviews, the blanket smells strongly of chemicals even after repeded washing and the material pills.

    • Verified Purchase
      Option: White - King

      not what I had expected. I thought it was going to be a fluffy blanket but it's more like the cotton blankets. Even though I kept it it works fairly well as a lightweight wool blanket. Don't expect it to be fluffy and thick. This is why I only gave it three stars it was not portrayed as the picture looked.

      It looks great - I washed it before using as with all new bed clothing and came out perfect.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Do you know the percentage of wool/acrylic in the blanket?"

      • A:

        51-percent Merino wool and 49-percent Outlast acrylic. I hope this helps.

    • Q:

      "I have two dogs and in the past their claws have snagged a woven cotton blanket that I had. Would the dogs claws likely snag on this weave too?"

      • A:

        I have no dogs presently but expect that could be a problem. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE BLANKETS. THIS IS THE 3RD AND 4TH I HAVE BOUGHT. WARM AND TOASTY, AND LIGHTWEIGHT !

      • A:

        Luv this blanket, luv overstock AND luv dogs. This blanket is sort of a tight weave. So yes, I think dogs nails would cause pulls, especially medium to large size dogs. That being said the blanket is awesome! Like Goldielocks: not too hot, not too cold, just right! I would recommend the blanket but would also recommend a comforter or bedspread on top to protect it from your dogs.
