Rated 4 out of 5 by Frustrated15 Shrinks
Ordered this Cool Comfort blanket since we live in FL. thus I am always warm. The Lake Blue color is pretty but the blanket shrank over 4"". Measures 92" versus the prewash of 96". Have a king mattress, not oversized, used cold water, delicate cycle. Dried on low heat. I realize 100% cotton does shrink but for the price, expected less problems. Will use a few days before making final decision whether or not to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ReneC16 Just what I was looking for
This is a simple blanket which I'm using for a light cover-up here in the too-warm California nights. It's been so warm lately that it hardly cools off at night and a sheet is adequate, but some mornings there's a slight chill and this blanket is just right. And when I get up, I straighten the bed and the blanket looks nice all by itself without the fuss of a bedspread or quilt. When the season changes I'll top it with a comforter.
This is a nicely made blanket. It has a self-hem, no rolled or sewn hem to come apart over time. I like the pattern and the soft cream color. It washes and dries nicely, no rumpled look, and will become even softer with time. It's just what I was looking for.
Also, the cat likes it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 3DogsMom Wanted to love this, but...
I was looking for a quality cotton blanket - something on the lighter side that wouldn't be too warm for late spring / summer nights. I read the reviews for this blanket and thought it sounded perfect - especially the fact that several people said it didn't shrink when washed. When it arrived, I laid it on my bed to see how it fit, and it seemed perfect. However, I washed it before using it and it shrunk A LOT. Now, it is about 4 inches shorter than my sheet on both sides of the bed. It's so short, I can't even tuck it under the mattress. Very disappointed since others had said it didn't shrink when washed. If you don't care about shrinkage, it's a nice blanket.

Size is true to the catalog. We have a king bed and the blanket is perfect size all the way around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mumsims I am very satisfied with the blanket.
In the Bay Area the weight of this blanket is perfect almost 12 months out of the year. I can count on one hand the times I have to add a second blanket or just use a sheet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ojai33 Classy Blanket
I'm happy with the blanket. Would prefer Satin Binding which seems to be out-of-date. (Or maybe I am!)
Nice selection of colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by walker73 Good quality and nice color.
I like this blanket because it is a nice size for my queen size bed. There is plenty of blanket on both sides and end of bed, not skimpy.
The blanket is warm without being heavy.

Looking and looking, could not find a summer blanket! Finally in your catalog, not only a 'summer' blanket but the exact color yellow! Sooo happy. Made so well (Portugal) they know what there doing. The way that it's produced, as mentioned in the catalog, it can breathe and the air can circulate.
I'm a happy camper.
