Used for years

We love, love these blankets & last for years. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is, why can't they make just a full size blanket. The twin is too small for a full size bed & the full/queen is way to wide. Great blankets for all seasons.

have used these blankets for years!

I am so glad to finally be able to buy these blankets again. After searching stores for them a clerk at a store that doesn’t carry them told me to go online and at Vellux Blankets. I have always found them to be the right weight and long lasting.

Vellux Original Lovely Blankets

I have been looking for these blankets for a while now and I was searching in different stores but the $$ we’re way too expensive. I finally saw this site Vellux and came upon its different products that they had to offer and I was so Very Very Happy 😊 about all that they had to offer. I’m saying to all of you that don’t hesitate to buy a Vellux Blanket, they are just the best way to go and the best for sleeping, no matter what time of year you have it on your bed.
Thank You Vellux for your quality blankets

Not good quality

Ordered 2 VELUX original blankets. Washed one & noticed it felt stiff and had a strange feel to it. Washed it again to see if it got softer. It did, but left alot of lint in the dryer. Decided to wash the other one too. It left a HUGE mess in my washer & dryer. It was falling apart. After drying it on low as I had done with the first blanket, it had many, many patches of bald spots where you could see clear through to the core of the blanket. It took forever to get all the mess out of my washer and dryer! I decided to return both just in case the other one started to do the same. Greatly disappointed! I used to have one of these a long time ago & loved it. I really wanted to like these blankets, but it's clearly not the same quality as before. I am thankful that the company was very good about offering a refund. I sent them back & am waiting for my refund.
