Original blanket love affair

This is our third blanket we have bought over many years. They last a VERY long time, and feel wonderful to the touch. They are also incredibly warm. If you have a Queen size bed, buy a King size blanket and turn it sideways. This will give you another foot or so to tuck in at the foot of the bed.

Lush and warm

Love these blankets. Have used them for years.

Light bulb on over my head!

Could not find a comforter that was not microfiber or had those ugly stiches to keep filling in place. One day I actually noticed my old twin size Vellux blanket in the trunk of my car that I had for my dog and used to use for a throw on my sofa. And I came in and ordered one for my bed. And it is as soft and warm as I remembered. Problem solved. If it washes ok will order another one.

Soft, light and cozy!

If you’re tired of heavy blankets, but want the warmth you need this blanket. Light, incredibly soft and if you have allergies you really can wash this weekly in hot water. I’ve used these for 20 years, on all our beds. Fabulous!

Warm cozy nights

I bought this blanket for my son who got his first bed recently. It’s warm, soft, and lightweight. He loves it. As soon as we opened the package he snuggled up in it and has been enjoying it ever since.
