Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

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 5 by 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.

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.

2nd blanket as a gift. Love these heavy wool blankets. They are toasty warm and allow your body to breath, Unlike the cheap man made materials we have gotten used to in the last 30 years. They are expensive, but will last forever with proper care. Buy one you will love it. LLBean was very prompt as always...I always expect great service from them.

Always wanted this blanket, finally ordered it and glad I did. The colors are bright. The feel and texture is prefect. Not at all scratchy. Although I just started using it, I think it will be well worth the investment.

We have had a very, very cold winter this year. This blanket has been a wonderful way to keep warm on these cold nights and days.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ExMainier Packaging folds left very noticeable marks
When I took it out of its packaging and put it on my bed I was very disappointed. There were deep marks where the folds were, humps and grooves.
I tried to iron out the folds but was unable so I took it to my local dry cleaner. That helped a little but I can still see the folds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bioteacher1 Unbelievably warm!
I have been saving for quite awhile to purchase this blanket. The purchase was one of the best investments from LLBean that I have made in decades. This blanket is unbelievably warm! This has been a very cold winter and the warmth from this blanket was appreciated. It traps your body heat immediately and you benefit from the warmth within minutes. I'm sure this blanket will be passed down through the family. Thanks LLBean!
