    The blanket is very large so it easily covers you. It is also very warm. You will want to use it more as a stadium blanket than for everyday use at home, as the wool is very itchy if you aren't wearing layers. It is also dry clean only. The worst part of the blanket is that they package it with moth balls in the cartons so it has a strong odor when removed from the packaging that lasts for several weeks, but gradually diminishes and goes away over time.
    • Best Uses: Spring/Fall, Winter

    The blanket is very heavy. It also smells like old basement/moth balls. It's scratchy. I have no doubt that it will keep me warm at the soccer games.

    When the blanket arrived, I could not figure out why my house smelled like mothballs as I have never used them myself. I realized it was coming from the blanket package, so I never even pulled it out once I felt the wool. I knew it wouldn't be cashmere, but thought "Italian Wool" might be luxurious nonetheless. I was wrong. I was stiff and scratchy so I had to send it back.

    The noxious smell from this blanket is disgusting. My boy's all complained about the "stinky" blanket. I washed it in the gentle cycle with cold water and hung it outside to dry. The entire washing machine still smells (after 2 weeks). I checked the blanket and the smell is still there. Since I bought this item for less than $20, it makes no sense to return it because it is very heavy and the shipping would be too expensive. I plan to call STP and ask for some type of refund. The only benefits to this blanket is that it is heavy duty, warm and made in Italy.

    This was suppose to be a Xmas gift for my Mom. But upon the shipments arrival, I could smell a very bad moth ball smell coming from the box. Not good news.
    Had the blanket cleaned twice and no improvement. Took days for the house & garage to air out. Not a good product at all. Had to return it.

    This is A large chunk of wool felt that I may cut into 6 inch squares to replace mothballs throughout the house...
    It would work for A ground cover for A non hiking campout or could be used for hanging or overhead insulation or just thrown in the trunk of your car for emergency survival blanket...
    This is A serious chunk of wool felt for the price but reminds one of WW-II army surplus...
    Mine is also hanging in the garage and the moths are on the run!!!

    This is a good quality wool blanket. Heavy weave, not too scratchy, impervious to damp and good for picnics. That being said, it arrived at my house stinking of mothballs. Smells like it has been in my grandpa's attic for the last decade. I'm still airing it out. Even worse, I found a large, very sharp PIN stuck into the weave (like the pins used to package men's shirts)! Why does a blanket have pins in it? Luckily, no injuries. Had to search the entire blanket for more. But it was only [$], caveat emptor.

    These blankets are a nice, tight weave. They should last a very long time. I bought them for campouts when the kids need a little extra insulation than their sleeping bags provide. I could sleep very comfortably with just 3 of these on a pretty cold night. My wife says they are nice enough to keep on the couch and she can be picky about home decor. Bargain with key code offers. The odor of mothballs lingers after several days hanging outside but will eventually dissipate with time and use. I don't like to wash wool blankets but will if I have to.
