Rated 5 out of 5áby Goldicat Navy Matelasse Coverlet
I ordered this coverlet so that I could use it as a blanket and then just pull it up, smooth it out and have a simply made bed.
The coverlet is just wonderful. It is generously sized and soft. The fabric has a very tight weave. It is a nice medium weight and looks great without being at all fussy.
The blanket came folded and tied with a piece of twill tape. As I was unfolding the blanket to put it on our bed my two cats grabbed the twill tape and started playing with it. It is currently their favorite toy!
Thanks for another great product for us and a new toy for our cats ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5áby Zaley Soft and sturdy
I must credit L.L. Bean for allowing me to easily exchange a lightly used New Khaki coverlet for a white one. In my bedroom, New Khaki looked green, and what I wanted was a sand/tan color. I tried to live with it but ultimately decided to incur a return fee and get a white one. The process was completely painless.
I exchanged rather than returned the coverlet because it has such a soft feel with a subtle pattern. My cats have not managed to snag it, so it is sturdy, too. Drying time is a bit long (I need more than one cycle), but it comes out well.
Another reviewer mentioned it is more blanket-like than quilt-like, and I agree. It can go right from packaging to bed with no smell and a soft feel.

Rated 5 out of 5áby thequilter2 Perfectly Lovely!
This coverlet is exactly as described in the catalog. It fits the bed perfectly, it's very soft, and it came prewashed. I ordered it for my guest room in white, and it will be well used.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Texas2Step Matellasse Coverlet
I first purchased this "matalasse" as a bedspread, which was too large for our king size sleigh-style bed. It drooped over the side to the floor, so we returned it for the Coverlet, which is the correct size. I've purchased matelasse products from other sources and they have always been two layers of fabric with a thin inner core, with a stitched pattern. Not the case here. It is a thick layer of cotton with an imprinted pattern. It looks okay from a distance. But not what I thought it was.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Alder Very Good Quality
I ordered this coverlet in Atlantic Blue. It is a lovely medium shade of greyish blue, much more practical considering the inevitability dog hair than my original inclination towards navy. Originally, I ordered the queen bedspread, which was too large for our bed configuration. This coverlet is just the right size. I love the classic matelassÚ pattern and the coverlet appears to be very well constructed. Very happy with another LL Bean purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RSMom Nice Quality and Color
Very high quality coverlet, well made and nice coloring. However, it was returned because I was looking more for a quilt-type covering, a cross between a bedspread and a blanket. This is more blanket-like in structure, which would be great if it was going to be layered with other pieces.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Kattrip Amazing Coverlet
This is the first time I have ever written a review, and this product deserves it!
I had ordered the Vintage Matelasse Coverlet in Soft Teal for our king-size bed. The criteria was: machine wash and dry, and cat-claw proof!
It arrived on time, fits the bed perfectly and the cat approved by trying to scratch it without success.
It is warm over our comforter yet breathable with a nice weight to it.
The color was a tad darker than I expected but we really like it.
It looks nice folded at the end of the bed, "hotel-style".
Yes, the price is higher than what I have purchased before, but the quality made it worth the price...it will last many years.
I have already washed and dried it-no change in color or size.
It's a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5áby cbharvest The Perfect Coverlet
I got this coverlet to remedy an age-old problem: I like to sleep cool and my husband likes it snug. After suffering under a beautiful, fiber-filled comforter for a year, pulling it off when I got hot, then pulling it back up, I decided to go a different route. I got this cotton coverlet and folded a queen-size down comforter across the foot of the bed. Ladies, this was a great solution! This blanket allows enough cool air to come through that you don't overheat, and if one sleeper gets chilly, he can pull up the comforter and leave it off of you. The coverlet is long enough in king size on a king size bed to cover the mattress, and then some, and fold over the pillows like a bedspread. I put extra pillows on top to match the comforter cover at the foot. It looks good and feels great!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Twentyseven Not Disappointed at all !
Not only is this what I was hoping for, it didn't even have a factory smell, so washing was unnecessary; went right on the bed!
