Rated 5 out of 5áby Scoutpenny Classic and most excellent!
I have wanted this blanket for a long time. I made a decision this past year that I was done with our down comforters and wanted to switch to wool blankets. I grew up using wool blankets and missed the cozy warmth and comforting heft of them.
We are so happy to have made the change and are in love with this classic and iconic blanket. It is beautiful and warm.
On top of the Hudson's Bay blanket we use a wool comforter with duvet.
So far, on the coldest New England nights we are warmer than we have ever been. In fact some nights, too warm and we peel back the comforter leaving just the top sheet and Hudson's Bay blanket.
A couple of months after we made this purchase through L.L. Bean we were re-doing a spare bedroom and bought a second Hudson's Bay blanket from another retailer because L.L. Bean only offers this candy-stripe version. While we love the candy-stripe, there are so many other colors. I wish L.L. Bean would stock other colors. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this wool blanket. We will take wool over down all the time now.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MaineIsland spectacular quality...an heirloom blanket
this is one of those once in a lifetime blankets....substantial, unbelievably warm and yet so cozy and comfortable. If you are in a cold climate, there is nothing else on the market to compare. Combine this with a goose down comforter and you don"t need heat!

Rated 5 out of 5áby EmmaNora Beautiful Blanket
I was surprised to find six black stitches on a portion of the blanket. I wondered if it was a mistake but figured it may be a trade mark for my six point Queen size purchase. The blanket is beautiful, warm,soft on the skin and sized perfectly. I got a great deal with 10% off and cashing in all my ten dollar coupons. That was the only way I could make this long time desired purchase come true.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ChagrinFallsScott Very Thick Blanket
At a cost of $399, one expects a lot out of a blanket and this delivers. What impressed me most was how thick the blanket was. It's about twice as thick as a couple of old "army" blankets I have -- maybe even more than twice as thick.
Some folks say it's itchy. For a wool product, I did not find this to be exceptionally itchy. My only wish is that the product was available in a background color other than white/off-white because I suspect this will get a little grimy-looking over time.

The Hudson Bay Blanket is an excellent choice for a warm winter blanket. It may be the only blanket you'll need. The wool lets your skin breath and creates instant warm by trapping body heat. It drapes nicely. The queen size was ample for sharing. I do get over heated with this blanket when sharing with my boy friend, but that may be just me. I would still recommend it. It is worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Frazzi So warm
Wow! I LOVE this wool blanket. I've wanted a real wool blanket for a very long time but could never find the right one. When I found these Hudson Bay blankets on another website, I knew I had to have one. LL Bean's price was a much better deal because of free shipping and 10% off. I'm a huge fan of their customer service and guarantee so the price point was just icing on the cake.
We got the King and it is hangs over all sides of our bed plenty. As what would be expected, this thing is quite warm. Another reviewer mentioned that it is rough and scratchy; I'm not sure what they were expecting out of a wool blanket but I wouldn't say it's any more rough than other wool blankets.
If you can afford it, I highly recommend getting one. It will last a lifetime.

Rated 2 out of 5áby axejacks It's fraying, already!
I just bought this beautiful blanket and the edges are coming apart. I've owned MANY HBPBlankets and this has NEVER happened before. Hopefully L.L. Bean can put this blanket on their machines and surge the edges for me, otherwise this will have to be replaced. I hope it's returnable.
If they're making these blankets more cheaply, now. I would not recommend paying this high amount for a blanket that is going to fall apart and fray at the edges.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Ascolto Disappointing
Costing well over $500, I expected this blanket to be soft and smooth to the touch. It was neither. I only had to open the package a little to feel the rough, harsh surface, and quickly decided I did not want it.
