Rated 5 out of 5 by CozyGarden Why didn't I buy this sooner?!
The Hudson Bay Blanket is an icon for a reason, and it's not just the striking graphics. As someone who loves Canada, I have been familiar with the HBB for many years. However I could never afford it while I was working in Canada. Imagine my joy at finding it in the LL Bean catalog while I was looking for a new king size blanket. This blanket is wide enough to cover the whole bed with room to spare. It is also incredibly soft in texture for pure wool. Most importantly though, when used as an insulating layer between a sheet and a top coverlet it is just the right degree of warm: not too hot, not too cold. I love, love, love this blanket. I only wish I'd bought one sooner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MerriMom Warm but not a stand-alone solution
We've had our Hudson Bay blanket for a year and I am very happy with it. My daughter likes the heaviness of the blanket and says it helps her relax and fall asleep. While this blanket is warm, it does not provide enough warmth on its own. We have found that layering it between another blanket and her comforter do the trick. It does a lovely job of holding body heat within the bed, but independently, doesn't seem to bring as much warmth as we thought it would. It is very generously sized- so much so that's it's almost challenging to tuck under the edge of the mattress, but this is hardly a complaint; an observation, really. I've read many times that these blankets do best with little washing/dry leaning and this is another reason to layer the blanket and wash the other linens instead.

This is my second year of owning this blanket and I am very pleased with it. In the fall I use it as a top layer with flannel sheets, and in winter I put a down comforter over it for extra warmth. It is lofty and not too heavy for layering. I believe I will get decades of use from it as it is well made. One word of warning: cats seem to love it as well. Mine is thrilled to sleep on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mbporte I've wanted one as long as I can remember
Bought the full/queen and it was much to large for my full size bed, returned it for a twin size. If the twin size was an inch or maybe even a half inch wider it would be perfect. As is we can make it work. It doesn't keep me as warm as I thought it would, I have a top sheet, the Hudson Bay Point and patchwork quilt on the bed and my feet still get a bit chilly. Also the sides seem to be finished off but not the ends. But all in all I am happy with my Hudson Bay Point blanket and wifi hand it down to my grandson someday, hopefully a part of history he will enjoy and pass on to his children.

I LOVE this blanket. It's heavy weight which I love. Keeps me cozy & warm & since I sleep with windows open all year round it's great in this much cooler weather. I know it's a bit pricey for most people but I would sure recommend it for everyone. It's nice looking too.

I went from a down comforter to just this blanket, it is warm, it is lighter and it breathes better. I may need just a bit more in the depths of winter, but this blanket is the best covering I have ever had. Looks sharp too.
I don't mind the wool on the skin, it isn't as comfortable as a cotton sheet of course but it doesn't irritate if your skin comes into contact with it.

Wonderful blanket for yourself, or as a gift. This is the second one I purchased, the first for me and the second for my Son and his new wife as a wedding present. Highly recommend to anyone and the history that goes with it.

I have wanted a Hudson's Bay Blanket for years. The kids have left home and I finally ordered one. It's heavy but soft and warm. I don't have to have as many blankets on the bed to keep warm.

While I am not terribly fond of the colors (Bean only offers one choice) this is a warm, heavy blanket that is generously sized. I am using the queen blanket on a full sized bed and there is lots of blanket for tucking on all sides. The wool isn't scratchy but is also not a blanket one would snuggle up with on the couch. The blanket is sturdy yet pliable, and warm but not sweat-inducing like many synthetic blankets. If I could buy the blanket in a more neutral color, to match our bedding, I would buy another one. Great investment for my family.
