This blanket is just what I was looking for. It is soft in a natural-fiber way, not fluffy-soft or slick feeling. I was concerned it was going to be too big, but after washing and drying it fits perfect on my twin bed. I have washed and dried it twice and it has come through looking great.”

“Such a nice blanket! Just what I was looking for—a cotton thermal blanket for winter. It has a nice weight to it and the weave is good and solid, unlike other cotton thermals that had a looser weave with more holes for air pockets.”

“I was super excited to receive this throw. I had been looking for something like this but every throw I found was either rough or very plain. As soon as I took it out of the package my boyfriend and dog snuggled under it for hours. It is so comfortable that you will want to instantly nap. It looks beautiful as well when used as a throw.”

“I ordered this blanket in white and khaki. I love the feel and look of the waffle weave. The blanket is lightweight and springy, unlike traditional cotton weave blankets that feel heavy and dense. I gave the blanket 5 stars because of the quality of the material.”
