I have been using the Vellux Original Blanket since it's first manufacturing day.
It is simply the best hypoallergenic blanket.
I purchased this Vellux Original Blanket in the Moss and again in Blush. Both colors are beautiful. I was taken by surprise at the feel of them because I have never felt a blanket that feels like this one. It is an insulated blanket so the inner portion has got some body to it making it look and feel thicker which makes you think it may be too hot. The exterior surface has very short fiber material that gives it a brushed surface (something like the way suede looks and feels). Then when you open it up you realize it is light as air and feels so good. This blanket doesn't make you hot at all. It is a year round blanket. All borders of the blanket have folded edge that is sewn with a professional finish that is very attractive and will stand the test of time and when washed will get softer and softer. Those seams are there to stay and no loose threads anywhere. Just perfection.
My new Vellux blanket surpasses my expectations.. admittedly I’m a tad picky. I was hesitant when I had to replace the one I’ve had for 12 years. We were very pleased with our replacement. The sage color is beautiful, the texture is soft, and it is absolutely the perfect weight. Not too light, not too heavy. I am ordering 2 more for our guest rooms!
