Rated 3 out of 5 by ThomBP Well Made and Warm but Slippery
I've held off offering a review until my wife and I lived with this new blanket design for a while. The verdict is that we both like the warmth. Our cat who visits us often during the night hates stepping on the fur side of the blanket. She wont step on or lay down on the ultraplush fur so we're constantly making adjustments for her. We choose to use the blanket as a bed cover, with the fur side facing down. Apparently the fur side adds a degree of slipperiness to the lay of the blanket, so during the night if we toss or turn, the blanket tends to migrate off to one side or the other. And sometimes, when we wake in the morning, we will find that the blanket has slipped entirely off the bed. This is a real issue and an unexpected consequence of the duo surface design. The ultraplush side is too slippery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLollipop Cuddly warm blanket
We LOVE the Ultraplush blanket. It is soft and warm, light weight and pretty too. It feels like sleeping under a luxurious fur. We put the sateen finish on top, which is clean and smooth for a nice finish. It washes and dries well -- no bunching, shedding, or wrinkles. The only reason we give it a 4 is because the queen size should be about 12 inches WIDER. There's now enough material for a 12 inch drop over each side, which is fine when there's no one in the bed. As soon as two people get under it, the drop disappears and you are right at the edge of the material. Also, LLB should sew the label on the furry side, so it won't show. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela1535 Size, weight and color perfect!
This blanket is lighter than my former down-filled one, and has just the right degree of warmth. Well-made, attractive color. The plush is amazingly soft. Great purchase.

I am allergic to down and this blanket is much better! It is so warm and cozy and beautiful. The color is perfect - just as pictured online. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockafish Works best with Flannel -- Sleepover Favorite
If you read through other reviews, you'll notice a common thread that this blanket slips around on the bed. We had the same problem, but then added the Heritage Chamois Flannel Sheets, and "viola!" -- no more slip.
After a year's worth of use and washing/drying, the plush is still lofty and soft, and the color (sea-foam) stayed vibrant. Yes, I have to empty the lint basket, but I found this to be "normal" shedding for the type of material. Like laundering stuffed toys -- they lose some fuzz.
This cozy blanket is the favorite of my teenagers and their friends who frequently crash in our living room. They argue over who gets the "awesome blanket."
4 stars due to slippage with cotton sheets. 5 stars if you use this blanket with flannels. 5 stars from the sleepover crowd.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SartorialGirl Update to my review
I already wrote a very positive 5-star review for this, but wanted to add this update just as a note to potential buyers!
I still believe the blanket is great, it looks fantastic and feels wonderful, BUT as others have noted it slips constantly through the night which has become more noticeable (and annoying!) as time goes on :)
I'm not sure what the answer to that is, but it may be that this works better as a throw? Tucking it in as much as possible under mattress does help. I have it on top of bed, maybe in between the sheet and a bedspread/comforter would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kajama Ultraplush sateen blanket a huge hit
My son had come home from college and complained how cold his room felt, and remarked he was sleeping in his sweats. I ordered one of these blankets for him, and when he came home for Xmas, I never heard a peep about being cold again. He also remarked how he loved how it felt. I decided to get my daughter one as well, and she too loves the feel and the warmth. One of her friends asked her how she ever gets out of bed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by almamater Great blanket
This is a wonderful blanket! It's not heat trapping and has no cold spots. I love the softness of the plush side. The only downside I can see so far is that it tends to slide off the sheets a bit when we're asleep. Otherwise great purchase and I'm even thinking of buying one for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Srmsmg5 Amazing
I love this blanket. It is so incredibly soft and warm. It added the extra cozy touch I needed. A slight negative is that it does slip around in the night. Tucking it in at the bottom helps a lot.
