Rated 5 out of 5 by lefthandgal Light Weight but Warm
Coziest, most comfortable blanket that we have had in years. It is lightweight, yet warm. Very soft, too.

This is the best blanket I have ever owned. Light weight but warm and very comfortable. Attractive and no pilling whatsoever. Initially I hesitated to buy this because of the price, but it is worth every penny.

I have an llbean throw made of the same material, and was afraid I might not have such supreme good luck a second time. But I was wrong. this blanket is absolutely lovely. Light weight and just the right warmth
. Our weather has been warmer than the usual during the day, but at nights it gets cool, and this blanket has excellent warmth. Under a duvet in the winter it is going to be wonderful with the extra weave for the foot area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveLLBeansBlanket Warm, Light, Quick to dry
I had wanted to buy one, because people outside this website raved about it for not shedding. Just slept in it last night (east coast). I tend to get cold before everyone else. But this one is unbelievably warm.
I folded it in half to create two layers,which I had hoped to deliver the same result with my old poly blanket on my pure wool blanket this past week. Our a/c does not change.
Shortly after I turned in, I ended up pushIng the top half of LL Bean blanket off, because it was too warm. I was marveling all night & slept tight, because I knew there will not be any need for me to worry about being chilly around dawn. Neither do I have to be oppressed by my old pure wool blanket (I could feel its weight & hated it whenever I had it on).
For something so warm, maybe you would guess it takes a lot of time to dry? At least that's what I speculated. I was wrong.
I do not dry clothes or bedding items in the public laundromat. So I had prepared myself to air dry it for days on end. But it was shaken off a lot of water after the washer run. A few hours in the air, a quick blow dry with my hair dryer, it was ready for me.
The only other test I need to put it under is shedding. I just noticed 9 percent poor reviews were aimed at this issue - surprise! But someone there clarified that a flannel sheet could trigger it. I use cotton sheets. We will see. I might even update my review in a few weeks.
But even if shedding happens, the other features accommodate my needs like no other brands, it is a keeper for me. Thank you, LL Bean, I never thought a warm blanket can be so light (& therefore nice). Disclaimer: I do not like the color or the rest of the colors offered, so the color did not sway me. I didn't get any discount, either. Moreover, I had made only a few purchases at LL Bean in the past, because in general, I am turned off by its generous cut. But, I adore this blanket.
If you are my opposite, try the down blanket version. I ordered & returned it without opening the box- - very heavy.

This blanket is a nice weight and packs more than adequate warmth - not too lightweight, nor too heavy. Works great in the Upper Midwest late Spring and early Summer temperatures. I haven't slept so well in ages. The gold color is quite lovely - and a nice change from the usual blues and greens that I often purchase. Excellent quality and a reasonable price with the use of coupons. Another great LLBean product.

My husband has dementia and is always cold.. I was at my wits end . . and then I saw this blanket. PERFECT. We sleep with the same bottom sheet but separate blankets and comforter ( also an LLBean). He gets wrapped up in his twin-size blanket and I get to sleep. Next purchase, a blanket for me. Thanks L.L.BEAN.

I returned one of these blankets due to a line running vertically through the blanket. After waiting 2 mos for a replacement....the new blanket has 2 vertical lines through it about 2ft apart.
The blanket is very warm....however, for a blanket over $100, I expect a better quality blanket

This is the first King blanket I have ever owned that is long enough to both tuck in AND cover your shoulders. The first time I used it, I had to double check that it wasn't, in fact, an electric blanket. I felt IMMEDIATE warmth. Would definitely recommend this blanket.
