Rated 5 out of 5 by Decor8er So warm and cozy
I purchased the throw first and loved the warmth and coziness but found it to be too small. I then stepped up to the twin size and I love it. I use it for the sofa and tv watching. It is very warm and the fleece is so soft and dreamy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jdmeara Great warmth and comfort.
I had two of the ultra plush down throws that my wife and I were carting upstairs and downstairs every night. We'd take it down to watch TV and then back up to throw on top of a regular down comforter while we slept (I normally would toss my throw aside because I get hot at night). We bought the blanket to use as a comforter for our bed and the other benefit would be that the throws could stay downstairs as "TV blankets."
These things are super comfortable. The lining on one side feels great against skin. The other side is a nice fabric. The only reason this got 4 vs. 5 stars is that it does slip around. We have the blanket on top of a percale LL Bean sheet set, fleece side down, and it does slide around. We've tucked the blanket in at the bottom and that pretty much solves the issue. It makes sense it slides and I don't know if there is anything LL Bean could do to solve it, but with a quick bottom tuck, it's just fine. As long as you don't mind tucking your blanket in the bottom (ours can't tuck on the side - we have a mattress with a memory topper built in). this works great. If you don't want to tuck, but want to experience the joys of this blanket...buy a throw.
All in all, excellent blanket with the quality we have come to expect from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cswartout Never get out of bed again!
This blanket will make you never want to get out of bed. For me, this is a good thing! It's light, soft, and warm, but not overbearingly warm. I can't recommend this thing enough. They also make it in a throw size which is how I discovered it. We received one as a Christmas present, and within minutes of using it, I knew I wanted one for my bed. Not cheap, but oh so worth it.

I bought this for my 90 year old Mother in Law. Older folks are always cold, but this blanket is so warm! She does not even use a sheet anymore cause she loves the soft blanket on her as she sleeps. Many of her friends that live in the same assisted living facility that she does want to get one for themselves! I will also purchase one soon for me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dalgal Soft, warm, and too short.
We have 3 of the throws and everyone I've given them to for Christmas loves them so when we needed a blanket for our full size guest bedroom, I ordered one. But it's too short! Tuck it in at the bottom and it won't cover your shoulders. Pull it up so your shoulders are warm and your toes get cold. They need to add just a few more inches to the length. It does "travel" on the bed but if it's tucked in at the bottom, it seems to stay in place better. But of course, then your toes are cold!
Other than the length, we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LocalMainer42 Outstanding Customer service!
I purchased this in the Freeport Store the day before Christmas. There were no more twin sizes in the blue color but Bev and another lady were able to sell me the display one. They were soo helpful and friendly and folded it up nice and put a ribbon around it since it was going to be a gift. I hope to see them there the next time I visit! The blanket itself is very soft and warm. I hope to get one for myself one day. Thank you, Bev!

Rated 3 out of 5 by susiejacks Misleading Reviews!!
I've never written a review here before, but decided to do so to hopefully help someone from making the same mistake I did. Don't get me wrong, this is a quality blanket but it is NOT super warm. After having read all these rave reviews about how warm this blanket was, I splurged and bought two for my boys' beds. I wanted to stop needing to put three different blankets on them each night. We live in upstate NY and keep the house at 62 F at night. So, I figured with flannel sheets and this blanket they'd be ok. But NO they complained of being cold. I added one blanket along with this one and still cold! So it's back to three blankets with this one on top. I'm really disappointed that this isn't the really warm, puffy winter blanket I thought it would be. I might have to shell out the money to send it back. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommyjoe Understanding Linus!
Received the throw last year for Christmas and loved it. As soon as it started to get cold I became Linus, carrying my blanket up and down each time I changed floors! Wanted the king size, but price seemed crazy. Love that it is machine washable, haven't done that yet, but confident it will be fine.
Only downside is how much it travels at night. Double sheet it and use no other blankets as it is plenty. Fuzzy side down so far means we readjust several times a night and still end up with it on the ground (not on my side!) each morning. Going to try flipping it fuzzy side up and with flannel sheets. There must be a way. It will work!!
Also, want to say thank you to shipping department, blanket arrived just as we hit teens and single digits, no time wasted in putting it to good use!
Last endorsement, is it is loved by our pups and the hair brushes off nicely. This week my papillion has been digging under pillows to rearrange bed so this blanket becomes his nest. He is a smart pup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GardenBirdDog Down-Filled Ultraplush Sateen Blanket
My elderly father LOVES the throw-sized version of this so much, that when Bean introduced it in a blanket size, I had to get him one. He loves the blanket just as much. Very warm without a lot of cumbersome weight, very soft against the skin.
No other blanket pleases him nearly as much.
I'll probably get him a second one, so that when one needs to be laundered, it won't be a rush to wash, dry and return it to the bed in a matter of hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amountainmamaof2 I don't know why I waited
I had a throw like this- that has been loved and used and washed and loved and used and washed some more! I kept looking at this blanket and thinking how awesome to have a blanket like this.
I didn't buy it and waited and waited.
I don't know why because it's even better than the throw.
It's worth the money, it's warm, it's soft, it's great! Don't hesitate just grab it! I use it on our master, it's cold in the mountains and it sometimes gives a little boost. But it's also travelled with my boys to the sofa!
Much loved by all - my only advice is don't hesitate.
