Reversible Cotton Fleece Blanket
Shrank a foot- used proper washing/drying methods; heavy
I really wanted to love this blanket, and ordered two. They felt a bit 'heavy'- which is hard on arthritic joints. However, I can't manage the care for big, fluffy quilts any longer and needed to find a solution. Bought 2 fleece blankets elsewhere- felt like plastic, and they made me sweaty. Thought cotton fleece might work. Washed and dried one according to directions. Huh. Seemed smaller. I laid it on top of the unwashed one, and it had shrunk in the length by 13". Sent them back. Ordered the Land's End Thermacheck 100 fleece blankets, and I'm ordering another one right now. They're great!!

Fantastic, but it shrinks!
I was thrilled with this blanket when I first put it on my bed. There was generous cover for a King-sized bed, the color was very attractive and the feel was very pleasant. I thought I had found the perfect blanket. That was until I washed it. Despite following the laundering directions, the blanket had significant shrinking and now only covers a few inches beyond the top of the mattress. I admit to disappointment in this. I would still recommend this blanket with the caveat that the buyer buy the next size up. I only wish that this was possible for a King sized bed.

Warm and soft
I love this blanket! I had been looking for a non-acrylic fleece type blanket and this is perfect. It is soft and a great weight. I bought the twin in the cream just to see if I liked it and it actually covers the top of my queen bed. My cats will not stay off of this blanket! I would like to see this offered in a two shade green and a two shade burgundy. Please bring more colors next year.

I purchased this blanket in the king size for our queen bed, just to make sure we had plenty of coverage. Well, I am glad we did - the blanket shrunk dramatically in the dryer, by at least 12" That was quite a shock.
While the blanket is soft, it is not as soft as Polar Fleece or mohair. Also, it is very heavy.
There are only 2 color choices, neither of which work well for our bedroom. I wanted an off-white or white which seem pretty obvious as a color choice.

My sister bought the natural color for me during Christmas and I'm still using it! It's is sooooo soft and comfortable. I use in bed, but end up pulling it off the bed to bring with me on the couch on those lazy days. The quality and is amazing and I believe it will last for years. I went online myself to check if they had other colors, my husband and I tend to fight over it on the couch so I figured it would be good to get another blanket in another color. Too bad I don't really like green. Anyway I hope more colors will be available soon.

Love this blanket!
I bought the twin size in two different colors. I'm sure they would be great on the bed but they never got there. We use them to wrap up in while watching TV. Warm, cozy, and comfortable with the breathability of cotton. Can't be beat!

This is the most I've ever paid for a blanket. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. It's warm and well-made. I love it!

So soft and warm
I ordered this based on the reviews and am so happy with it. I was a little concerned about the warmth factor, especially for the winter, but I had grown tired of our itchy wool blanket and was willing to try something new. Cotton fleece is new to me, but now I'm sold! It is extremely soft and plenty warm, Thanks LE! Keep this one stocked, and more colors, please!

The perfect blanket
I have your cotton blankets for summer and microfleece for winter for our kids, yet I never could find just the right one for me. This was the answer. It is soooo soft, and it has some weight to it. It washed and dried like a dream. We live in a colder climate and in a 100-year-old brick house, which is never truly warm in the winter. Already I have spent several evenings and mornings curled up in my chair with this blanket. I haven't even bothered to put it on the bed! It appears to be the kind of blanket that will last two or three generations, like the ones my grandparents handed down to us. Thanks for offering the cotton fleece!

Soft and Warm
Since I tend to get too warm when I sleep, finding the perfect blanket is a challenge. Several years ago I bought a nice Lands End down comforter. Even during cold weather (and it gets very cold where I live!) I was too warm. I passed the comforter along to a friend who needs the extra warmth and she loves the comforter. I considered trying a wool blanket, but decided to buy this cotton fleece instead. I believe I made the right decision. It is "just right". It does not feel heavy. On colder nights I add a cotton flannel blanket and stay comfortably warm. This blanket is so soft I'm tempted to wrap myself up in it.
I bought the blanket during a sale and got a nice discount. But I would have been happy with it even if I had paid full price. This blanket is a winner.
