It keeps us nice and cool.
I was very hot with our wool comforter. This cotton blanket works perfectly.

Good enough quality, but kind of pricey.
Nice thermal blanket of light weight, good size for a queen bed. Would not recommend because it should be priced lower.

They don't make 'em like they used to.
I was replacing another woven cotton blanket with this one, and I've been so disappointed with it. Before putting on the bed, I washed it on gentle, and it came out already snagged, with broken threads, in at least two places. I decided to keep it anyway, but the difference in the durability of this new blanket vs. my previous one is obvious.
I understand the appeal of softness, but not at the price of durability. After all, I'm not staying up at night to pet the soft blanket. Make the threads a bit more strong, and give me a better quality blanket any day.

Perfectly light weight
Can't stand a heavy blanket, even in winter. Using this light weight blanket under the duvet now, and it will be super without the duvet come spring. Just what I wanted!

medium weight perfiection
Most blanket are NOT 96" they are 90" and this blanket is 90", which is what I expected. The colors are pure white, and a combination of creams and other colors. Cream/natural, cream/blue, cream/sage.. They are beautiful. I never heard of a stabilizing border and i think that is a wonderful idea. I bought one of each color and they are beautiful.

Blue color is not as advertised - BEWARE
I ordered the "blue multi" which on my computer AND in the catalog appeared to be a blue/green combo, which looked great. Instead I received a blanket marked "blue multi" which is actually light blue and white. I would not have bought this blanket had I know this because it is NOT cut long (96") like most blankets these days, but is only 90" long. I compromised on the size because I thought the color looked so interesting. It's still in the package and I'm trying to decide to return, so I cannot comment on the quality.

In the South, the only blanket that is cool is a cotton open-weave design like this blanket. After searching the internet, I realized it was not easy to find. Linen Source is one of the only sites to carry this type of blanket. It is good quality, very light, 100% cotton. Note though that due to the open weave (which is what makes it so cool), it can easily be "pulled" -- we have pets and this is common. Also, luckily, I read the care instructions --- do NOT dry this in the dryer -- air-dry only --- it will probably shrink to nothing. Overall, this is a great find if you need a cool summer blanket. I have 2 -- bought a second one for the spare room after liking the first one so much.
