I wanted a washable cotton blanket. On sale, this was the best price on the web. It had a smell from the vinyl package so I washed it. Then it was not so beautiful. Also, I got a king because I was concerned about shrinkage, but it didn't shrink so it is bigger than I need.

I bought this for my son for his birthday. Within days, the lint was stuck to everything in his room. My mistake, I should have washed it as one does with towels. But even after 2 washings, the lint was evident AND the blanket lost its softness AND it looked pilled. I am returning it.

Very pleased! We needed a lighter blanket (weight and warmth) for the summer . Seemed huge when I opened it, but I gave it a quick cold water was that left it a more reasonable, but generous size. We ordered a K for our Q bed as we always like the extra. It's nice and soft (unlike the thermal cotton blankets that always seem to be a bit stiff and scratchy after a washing or two.

This blanket is beautiful and so soft, but when I first washed it and dried it, as per the instructions, it shrank about 6 inchehes in length! The width in unchanged. It's basically a square now. It's still beautiful and so soft, but cannot be used like a bedspread anymore. I even purchased it a size up to allow for shrinkage. I just never imagined it would shrink SO MUCH and only in one direction. So overall, it's a lovely blanket, just either don't ever wash it or don't plan on using it like a bed spread. Be prepared for it to shrink in a strange way to a strange size.

I purchased this blanket after reading all the positive reviews. It is super soft and seems to add the warmth we were looking for on cold nights. We haven't washed it yet so I can't provide any feedback about durability.

I have been looking online for blankets for a while and even ordered a couple and sent back to other companies. Many reviews talk about how thin the blankets are. Not this one. It is soft and thick. I did order a king size for my queen bed as the new mattresses are so thick, I didn't think the queen would be big enough. The king is fine - I just tuck more than usual under the end of the mattress. A great price too with a 40% off. Thanks Sierra Trading Post!
