I'm always on the hunt for an ultra-warm but lightweight blanket. Tried wool blends, acrylic blends and cotton blends from Overstock and all suffice. But I can stop my search with IBENA's phenomenal throw. Its the perfect coverlet size for my spare twin bed. I was impressed with its very velvety plush, luxe nap, its cozy warmth, fairly lightweight and very high grade German-made quality. After machine easy machine laundering and gentle tumble drying...no shedding, no pilling nor fuzzing. The quality became fluffier and the color just as brilliant as original. This reflects on the entire IBENA quality collect whatever the design or size. Love the great purchase price too!
We love this throw. It feels more like merino wool than like rayon, soft and thick. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the color is nothing like the picture. I understand that it's difficult to show colors accurately online, but the photo makes all of these appear sleek and drapy with a shiny finish. Ours is not at all shiny; it's more blanket-like. And the color is more of a dark cobalt than a navy.
I got this as a gift for my husband. I remember seeing something similar to this when I was a child and it brought back fond memories of vacations with my family. The wool is very soft and comfortable and really a perfect comfort in all weather. It is dry clean only but with light use, we will probably only need it cleaned once or twice a year. I only wish it'd come with something about the history of the blanket and it's relation to the national parks.
It's beautiful, soft and not scratchy like 100% wool, cozy and warm, we absolutely like it. Of course real wool will not be as white as synthetic. But the natural color is part of the appearance of the wool blankets.
