Rated 5 out of 5 by penneyshopper Comfortable warmth, and looks great!
This is the 4th blanket I have purchased in this style. I now have them in every bedroom in my house. They are lightweight, yet warm, wash beautifully, and look as nice as any quilt, if used alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Winalot This Blanket is warm enough and light weight
I Love this blanket and it looks nice on my King-size bed without using a bedspread. It fully covers my mattress and box springs. It is great for the summer months and more. Light weight and comfortable which is good, as I have bad shoulders and the weight of bedding can be very painful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olivia Great blanket
I've had this blanket for 10 months now. When I ordered it I was concerned about the fabric because it had been mentioned in other reviews. When I received it, I did find that the fabric was different than most down comforters, but it wasn't listed as a comforter, it was listed as a blanket, and that's what I ordered it for. The fabric wasn't cheap or irritating to my skin and it looked fine, especially for layering under my bed spread. It's amazingly warm for how light it is. It's also stood up well to my two dogs jumping and bouncing on the bed for close to a year with no visible wear and no tears. I love this thing. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more if I needed them and will recommend it to my friends. Just remember that this is sold as a blanket and seems to me that's what it's intended for. It's not the same as a down comforter so don't order it if a traditional down comforter is what you're looking for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KithaKat Fabric is funky.
Just received this yesterday. Big disappointment. Wanted to let people know about the funky fabric. The blanket is 100% polyester. When I opened it, I knew I'd be returning this because of the fabric. Best way I can describe it is that it looks like paper which resembles the cheap pillowcases that airlines use to cover their pillows but thicker and is somewhat plastic too. I don't believe that it breathes at all which is possibly why it's so warm....? It's also somewhat shiny which I don't like either. A dull shine. The size is really nice and covers the sides of the bed well but just can't get over the funky fabric. The blanket is somewhat thin but not as thin as I thought it'd be which is nice. If this blanket had nicer fabric that didn't have the above mentioned features to it, I'd keep it. Hope this helps some so that they're not as unpleasantly surprised as I am. Next time, I'm going to the store so that I can see it for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by purchaser Like the texture
The Bouclé Down-Alternative Blanket met my needs to replace a thinner down blanket my daughter's cat ruined. It is lightweight. I like the texture which makes it a bit different from others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HARR NOT WARM, Cheap and not what they used to be
STAY AWAY IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING WARM!!! After waiting over 1.5 months for it to arrive (back-ordered), we were appalled at the horrible quality and miss-representation of this comforter! We purchased it for a high warmth down alt as it was advertised to be so, but rather is is SO thin, barely enough for a summer comforter. Maybe an equivalent to a one layer fleece blanket. We knew it would be a sad story when the bag for a queen comforter was the same size of a sheet set... it's 2 thin pieces of weird looking fabric with 1 layer of 1/4' poly fill. This thing may hold up 2 washes before that 1/4" of poly fill flatten more than it already is, if we are lucky to get that many washes out of it. It is SOOO going back and we will be going somewhere else for a much better product for that price

Rated 4 out of 5 by KHTracy Great Springtime Blanket
Excellent light blanket, but still offers enough warmth on the chilly late-winter, early-spring nights. Have already washed and dried the blanket and it came out great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by leapshun nice, but still too warm
I would rate this a 4.5, if I could. This blanket feels light and is soft enough, to touch. But, I could tell the fiberfill [was it polyester?] was going to be too warm, for me. So, I returned it, in store.
The color was pretty....like a mint green. The lavender would have been my choice if it had been available upon order, not that it matters now....looks like I will be searching for all cotton.
