I am almost in shock! I have looked and looked and FINALLY found a "PERFECT" cotton blanket that does NOT leave lint balls all over it and your sheets, and has a tight enough weave that it does NOT pull when walked on by my 3 dogs! I washed it prior to using and there was just a little lint left in the dryer trap. I ordered it in the Ivory and have COME BACK TO ORDER both the Sage and the Camel. I sleep "hot" so a cotton blanket is the only kind I can sleep under! About 10 yrs. ago I found a cotton blanket that was not covered in lint balls when washed and had a weave tight enough that it did not snag. Unfortunately I only purchased one of them, and later could not find any like it. Since then I have been looking for and trying other cotton blankets, however, every one I have tried (at least 15) have left lint balls and/or pulled until I had to get rid of them! I am SOOOOO happy to have found this blanket! I will be donating all those horrible cotton blankets with pulls and lint balls, and will only be using this blanket! Thank you Overstock for offering such a fine quality cotton blanket!
Priced right, yet this will shrink and will need an alteration. I like a blanket that will tuck in with at least 8 inches and still reach the head of the mattress so when sleeping it will cover shoulders. I bought a King and a Queen and with 13 inch mattresses had to extend bottom length by 10 inches in order to tuck in because the length shrinks even when washed and dried as recommended. I save old sheets for this purpose so the it doesn't cost me for fabric purchase, So even though this blanket is not bed ready, it is a good value and has a nice weight and feel and is breathable. Also I am allergic to blended fibers and this is 100% cotton,
If you're in the market for a light-weight yet warm blanket, look no further. The Superior All-season Luxurious 100-Percent Cotton Metro Blanket is soft and warm. After several washings it's holding up well. With eight (8) neutral colors to choose from, you'll easily find an option to match your decor. I would recommend this blanket to anyone who needs one.
I like the 100 percent Cotton Metro Blanket. It very warm and comfy and the material is thick. It washes good too. I will be ordering it again in the future for a different color.
Purchased this 100% Cotton Metro Blanket in King Size for my Queen Size bed. The materials and craftsmanship is top of the line for a great price. I would rate this Blanket a Five Star except for the fact that the Metro Blanket is about one (1) foot to eighteen (18) inches too short (top to bottom) . . . when the Metro Blanket is placed on the mattress at pillow height, the writer was unable to tuck the Metro Blanket under the bottom of the mattress at the foot of the bed to ensure the Blanket stayed in-place.
Was looking for lightweight blanket to use instead of comforter and this fit the bill. I have a King size pillowtop mattress with a 3-inch topper and this blanket has really nice overhang. great buy
These are amazing cotton blankets. They have a nice weight but when your sleeping they are light and give you just the tight amount of warmth. I live in Florida and this is perfect for all year round. Bought two of them and will buy three more. My cousin bought some at a major retail store the were 3x more expensive. These are comparable to hers. Just love this blanket.
I bought this blanket in king size and in plum color. It's generous in size even after I washed it in warm water (the directions said to wash in cold water). I'm assuming that it shrank a bit, but there's still plenty of it (it generously hangs on the sides and the foot of the bed.) The blanket is a nice weight for all seasons and the chevron weave is a subtle nice touch for those who pair it with a patterned duvet cover/quilt/comforter. With the plum color, make sure that you wash it alone for the first few times. It's a saturated color and even though it doesn't lose its depth of color, the dark purple will bleed onto other 'reds'. It's very high quality even though it doesn't cost as much as other king size blankets. Worth every penny.
I love this blanket...I had been searching for a long time for an all cotton medium weight blanket like I use to snuggle under at my Mema's house when I was a kid. Took longer than I thought and a couple of errors that had to go back but this is the one. It's a nice tight weave and the perfect weight for a snuggle and a great layer blanket. It kept its shape very well after washing and it's not scratchy or rough. Two things to keep in mind, this is not a fluffy micro whatever fiber that's actually made mostly of polyester and is great on the couch but will sweat you out of a bed. This is real cotton with that just right right weave and weight to drape down around you instead of floating on top of you so you have to tuck it under you for it to stay put. Also I do extensive research on reviews and descriptions so pay attention to your measurements. If you have a full/queen size bed and you want this to go to the floor, its not going to. And to save you some time neither is anyone of the other brands out there. If you want it to the floor (like I always have) order a king or plan on it being very short on one side. I actually found that I very quickly got used to and even liked layering this under a quilt which surprised me but I really like the blanket that m much. I'm returning a fiesta brand blanket (great if you want a very loose weave) and ordering another one of these (wish they had red like the one I'm sending back) the best thing to remember when you are looking for something very specific is to order more than one brand and be prepared to maybe be disappointed and returning one or two but the search was worth it because this is what I was looking for.
Excellent quality blanket purchased for guest room twin beds.
Good value. Accurate color and nice all-season weight for blanket used in warm room of with down comforter.
Nice quality- tight weave, color true to picture. I did size up to a king, ( for my 8 inch thick queen bed) because my last two cotton blankets shrunk so much after a couple of washes that they didn't even come to the bottom of the mattress sides. If you have a king, (like one of my beds), don't expect coverage on the sides.
I bought the King/plum blanket and couldn't be happier. On our standard king bed (no pillow-top), the blanket overhangs 14 inches on the foot and both sides so I can tuck it in at the foot. And it's still long enough to pull over your head. It's a nice medium weight that conforms nicely to your body. The Herringbone pattern is pretty enough to be the top cover of your bed. And most importantly, it's kitty-proof. My kitten has played on it pretty roughly, and NO picks!! I really wanted burgundy, but the plum color was the closest choice. It really is a plum, rather than a burgundy, but as I have a burgundy comforter on top, the color blends OK. Note that the first time you wash it, it will produce a LOT of lint in the dryer lint trap, so check the trap before and after drying it, but the blanket still came out looking great. I highly recommend this blanket.
I took measurements of the blanket when I took it out of the box. I always wash new items before wearing or using them. The measurements on the box said 65 X 90. The blanket measured 70 X 95 before I washed it. I washed it in warm water normal setting and dried it on medium heat setting. After removing the blanket from the dryer the measurements were 67 X 91. So they allowed for shrinking! That's what I'm talking about! Very smart for the company to do that. Don't forget to empty the lint tray it was full as was expected for a 100% cotton blanket. Very happy with purchase.
If you like cotton blankets, or have to wash them often, this is a great addition to any bedroom. The quality is excellent. Love this blanket.
This cotton blanket is a perfect light weight blanket. It is excellent summer blanket.
I ordered the Sage green King size blanket to match my other bedding. The color and weight is just perfect for Florida weather. I only buy cotton blankets as the poly/cotton blends become too hot. I love the texture and tighter weave compared to other blankets I've purchased in the past. I was happy to read other reviews that stated it was durable and resisted pulls if you have a pet. This is a great feature for me as keeping a cats claws trimmed to prevent the pulling of the yarn is a challenge. Having the chevron tight weave pattern is a huge plus. I highly recommend this blanket.
I previously purchased a queen in plum and knew that it would be a perfect blanket for my 3 granddaughters twin beds. I purchased 3 in white and they are so soft & cuddly and have a tighter, more durable weave than many other cotton blankets and only get softer with every wash. The dark plum I purchased for my bedroom has held its color very well after many regular washes andbiscs great year round weight.
Great blanket. Love the texture and blue color.
Very pleased with the twin xl cotton blanket for my son's college dorm room bed. It's the perfect thickness for all seasons.
