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.

I have been wanting to buy this blanket for the last 2 years, and kept thinking oh it is too expensive, and i will wait. Well I just purchased the Hudson Blanket and received it at the end of May, just in time for the 40 degree weather we had at the beginning of June! I have to say I should have not waited; I love my blanket and so glad I have it. I know it is pricey, but it is totally worth it! Also as other reviewers have said it has an interesting history. LL Bean I love all your products, and I couldn't be happier! The blanket is thick, warm, and I love the cream color with the stripes it makes the blanket!

It was so cold during the blizzards of 2015 that my usual standby blanket of goose down just wasn't enough. I added this blanket under it and that did the trick. It feels light and doesn't itch. As the weather warms up I will use this blanket alone as it is very good looking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nebraska1 third blanket purchased
This is the third twin size blanket I have purchased as I am using them on twin size beds for grandchildren. This most recent purchase was several years after the first two purchased. The red stripe is not the same color red as in the first two purchased. It will have to be good enough. Other than that the blankets are great.

All my life, I've wanted a Hudson Trading Company Point Blanket. I remember sleeping under one when I was a small child in Buck's Harbor Maine in the 1960's. I had the wherewithal to buy one recently, and I just did it. It was everything I remember and more. This isn't just a blanket. It's a piece of history. To those who are thinking about it - just do it. To those who don't understand the history and significance of this blanket - look it up. To own one is to own a piece of history of North America. I can't wait to be able to buy one for each of my three children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 5 by 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!
