Still has the same look as always but I hope the quality is there. After washing it shed what looked like white feathers & had a small bald spot. Would prefer it not made in China. They substitute materials.

Love the blanket softness, but it is not durable at all.

I absolutely love the feel of the original Vellux, but with 3 dogs who sleep in our bed, it easily gets holes in it from the dogs nails. Unfortunately, this time, it was only a matter of days before the blanket had several holes.

Vellux Original All The Way!!

I absolutely love these blankets!! They are lightweight yet do the job. They stay so soft even after being washed and dried. And when you make your bed, you never have any wrinkles lol
My granny always had many of these Vellux original blankets on her bed when I was growing up. She had them in all different colors and I guess I just have really good childhood memories with these blankets. I need Vellux to hurry and restock King Size Original blankets so I can buy many different colors!!! They are harder and harder to find in different colors. I REALLY wish I could find the pretty pale yellow king size original.

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.
