Rated 5 out of 5 by Starzbynight Pendleton Blanket
This is the best blanket I have ever received. It was a Christmas present that has made all the difference in my winter night's sleep. I suspect it will serve well for summer, too, over the top sheet. For now I have my top sheet, an LL Bean medium down comforter, and the wool Pendleton blanket on top of the comforter. The comfort level is perfect, giving a depth of warmth not felt with a pile of blankets. It takes that "bone chill" off very quickly. What a thoughtful gift.

One of LL Beans finest products ever. Superior quality item made in the USA. Purchased the heather gray color and it was lovely, soft, warm. Please offer more quality products like this.

Very pleased with my purchase of the washable herringbone blanket that I bought in twin to use as a coverlet on my queen size bed. I got the medium blue and really like the pattern and color. A family member saw the blanket and hinted that it would be an excellent holiday present so I purchased another one. I am happy that LL Bean works with Pendleton Mills to offer such good quality wool blankets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoForClassics Beautiful Aqua Color
I purchased the "Blue Haze" color and the color matches exactly to the color in the photo on my laptop screen. It is a lovely aqua color herringbone weave. I'm so happy to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2Xtalldude The Finest Wool Blanket Money Can Buy.
I did some research Into the Pendleton company before making this purchase expensive purchase. Pendleton blankets have been hand made by Native Americans for over one hundred years and are considered the finest woven wool blankets In the world even by people In Eastern European countries known for their handmade blankets and quilts. I bought midblue herringbone model which is basically navy blue and even though Bean recommends washing It once before using to make It softer I found It plenty soft without. I live In NYC and my bedroom Is gets extremely cold In the winter time and last week the temperature dropped to 20F, (wind-chills 0), I slept quite cozy underneath my new Pendleton blanket unaware of the bitter cold surrounding me. The woven herringbone, navy blue color Is beautiful by the way. This Is one of the finest made In the USA products that I've ever purchased from LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by carpediem29 Perfect blanket
We rented a cabin in WV and the owners had this blanket on the beds. I loved it so much, that I ordered one when I got home. My internal thermostat is changing and I find the down comforters too hot. This wool blanket works much better over the sheet, and on the occasional night when I need I need something more, I just throw our light, quilted bed cover on top. It is itch-free and has gotten softer with each wash. The colors are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyCabinInTheWoods Lightweight, Itch-Free Warmth: Worth Every Penny!
(Note: This reviews the previous year's version of the Washable Wool Blanket)
After 7 weeks of use, here are initial impressions: no bad smells at all (which previous posters complained about), itch-free warmth that doesn't weigh you down. I'd saved up for awhile to buy this blanket, and it's been totally worth it.
It keeps me warm & cozy at night, so I can keep my heating expenses down, which really helps for high-altitude winters. Paired with a lined Rugby Robe to wear around the house, I haven't needed to start using my wood-burning stove yet - much to the chagrin of my short-coated dog!
If you want to stay warm while lowering the thermostat, or hate being plastered in bed by piles of blankets, this blanket's for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JGRND Superior Blanket BUT Watch the Color
First: I agree with the other review, the color description for the BLUE HAZE is very misleading. While it has a hint of blue, it is much more of a sea foam looking green. This was fine for me because I really wanted more of a green color anyway but if you prefer blue, you might be better served by the darker color.
Otherwise: The blanket is very soft and light. The stitching around the boarders is extremely well done. If you are looking for a well constructed, comfortable wool blanket with good workmanship this would be hard to beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mainefan2005 great blanket colour off
This is the fourth washable wool blanket that i have. They wash up well in a front loading washer. If you could hang them to dry it would be easier but they are fine in a dryer. They just take some time to dry. The only reason for four stars and not five is that this colour looks more like a green haze than a blue haze. The colours of the threads are blue and straw. Blue and Yellow make green. I prefer what it looks like but this is just a heads up.
