Exactly what we needed
Prior to purchasing the down blanket I had no idea there was such a thing. I was searching for a down comforter and ran across down blankets, read about them and decided that that is what we needed. I definitely wanted a down cover because I had stayed at a hotel that had a down comforter and it was so comfy. I had never used one prior. The blanket provides enough warmth for those cold nights yet when it's not cold it's just right for the a/c as well. It is soft and puffy and I like the way it is sewn with squares throughout to keep the batting from shifting. It has already been through the washer and dryer and it came out the same size as when it when in. No shrinking :-) I just wish it was wider. We have a split king bed and it barely comes to the bottom of the mattress and it's not a high mattress. I'm presuming 2 xl-twins are wider than a regular king. I look forward to many more snuggly nights under our new down blanket :-)

My new down blanket
Several years ago I bought a King size down blanket for our master bedroom, from Pacific Coast, and loved it from the first night of using it. It was a perfect fit and warmth. Recently I bought a queen size down blanket for our guest bedroom. It does come oversized and that was the only problem I had with it. That bed has a dust ruffle with a matching quilted top that doesn't come down over the sides as far as the oversize queen down blanket. I had thought of buying a full size but the measurements weren't quite right either and i thought if 2 people slept in that bed they needed a wider blanket, so I bought the queen size. All we need to do when making the bed is tuck the blanket under the sides of the mattress and it won't show underneath the quilted top. I love the blanket -- just right color and warmth in the winter for people who don't need a lot of heat at night.

Received as a gift
I probably would not have thought to get a down blanket myself, but had asked for a new blanket for my bed from my Dad (who drew me in the Christmas exchange drawing) for one. Both my husband and I LOVE this blanket. also, as Dad's do, he cheated, because I had no idea what this would have costed and would have never have found out if I didn't like it enough to review it. I will be saving my pennies for a pillow, because mine is getting quite old and bluck, and based on this blanket, I would buy another one ot these down products sight unseen.

Perfect for Spring & Summer!
Love this down blanket! I have Fibromyalgia and do not like heavy blankets or comforter's weighting down on my legs or feet. This is light weight, but still warm and comfortable. It is the perfect warmth (not to hot) for my husband too. I also like that it is oversized so you can tuck it in or let it drape over the bed. It has pretty satin trimmed edges. The soft mint green color one that I ordered goes perfectly with my green bedroom wall color and the calm Zen bedroom decor.

I agree with a previous posters that the item does not look like the picture. It is not that fluffy at all. And I thought from the picture, that it had fitted lower corners and that is why I purchased it. But I love the lightness of the blanket. I did fluff in the dryer when we received it...Still pretty flat. We already have the feather bed and purchased this as a year round cover up and bed spread as I felt the comforter would be too hot for Florida.
This blanket is soft, light on top and provides a light warmth for us. I am pleased with my purchase.
PS my dog & cat love the blanket as they can find many comfy spots to sleep in!
