Shedding blanket

When drying the blanket t shed a lot on my drier. I washed it 2 times and it shed a little less. I had a blue one before, maybe 5 years ago and I never had trouble with shedding when drying.
Other then that I hope you are making it the same as before.
I have always loved you’re blankets.
Do you have some blankets that have one side satin and the other valor?
Thank you
Sylvia Garza

Hi Sylvia,
I'm so sorry to hear you're having issues with your blanket. Our customer service would be happy to make this right for you. Please reach out to them at info@vellux.com.

Unfortunately, we do not specifically have a blanket that is one side satin and the other valor.
