I haven't had this blanket long, but was impressed right out of the package. It's soft, very well constructed and didn't shed "fluff" all over, which I experienced with another blanket (not from Vellux). Its warm without being heavy, great for cooler nights by itself, and I will layer it come winter. I purchased the charcoal and it's perfect. It is true to color as pictured on the website. This is my first Vellux blanket and undoubtedly won't be my last. Compared to some other blankets I've purchased, and returned, this is well priced and great quality.
This is my most favorite blanket of all Vellux blankets. It is so soft and cuddly. I bought it in the Fig color which is a beautiful dark plum. Even though my bed is Queen size I ordered the King size because my bed sits up very high because of the thickness of my mattress and box spring. It fits just as I hoped it would with plenty of drape over the sides. I would love if Vellux would make more blankets in their other types in shades of purple. Purple is a favorite color for a lot of people and I know they would sell. I love the color palates you use but there aren't much of a variety in the more vibrant tones. As far as quality...there is nothing that comes close and you have a great 100 day trial which I have never heard of anywhere else.
