Rated 5 out of 5Â by midge550 Wonderful warmth
Looking for a great wool blanket was turning into a task. I was not up to spending $300 plus dollars for one and kept putting off the purchase. I decided to check on the Vermont Country Store website on a whim and found the perfect wool blanket at a great cost in a variety of colors. Choosing a mint green, I could not wait to wrap my bed in its warmth. The blanket arrived quicker than I thought and was immediately placed on the bed. It fit perfect and no body heat was lost. There was no trying to get warm and no need to pile on two or three more other blankets. I would definately purchse another one and highly recommend this blanket to anyone looking for a new wool blanket.

I bought this blanket..I have lots of wool blankets some very old say 50 years or more. But I have no queen size ones.. well one from old Landsend but it doesn't really fit a queen size properly.
This blanket may seem thin but it has baffles like so is very insulating. "3 season blanket" are the key words so this might need another during winter or coldest temps. I can sleep with it easily but I do run hot.
The blanket is extra sized so more than fits the queen beautifully. I love it. Am considering buying another.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Phil11 Not what I expected
I read a lot of good things about this blanket, so I ordered one and was expecting a lot. This blanket is very very thin and lightweight. Im a very "Hot" sleeper meaning, I crate a lot of body heat while sleeping. I wear a lot of merino wool clothing which keeps me very warm, so I thought this blanket would be good so I could get rid of my heavy comforter. Well, I wound up freezing at night with this blanket. For me, it didn't live up to what others said about it. Beyond that, I washed it as recommended and my washer was covered in loose wool that had separated from the blanket and it was pilling horribly also. Is not well made at all. I ordered this in a King size and it fits well but that is the only plus I found. I would search elsewhere for another blanket.

I was so disappointed when I received these two blankets. I expected something luxurious. Instead, the fabric is so thin that you can see light through it, and the trim is cheap and does not match. They are being returned.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Leopardjan JUST THE RIGHT SIZE!
I bought this blanket in a queen size to replace a wool one that shrank after repeated washing and low heat drying. I have a pillow top queen size mattress, about twelve inches thick. This blanket will tuck about nine inches under the foot of the mattress, with about five inches from the top of it. I have a coverlet, rather than a down-to-the-floor bedspread, and it JUST makes it about even with the coverlet edges. The blue color is beautiful. The blanket is not heavy to weigh me down, and is nice and cozy warm, but not TOO warm. LOVE it!!

All last winter my husband fussed that he wasn't sleeping well, because he wasn't warm enough. Even with a blanket, quilt and bedspread, every night he would spread my decorative afghan across his side of the bed for extra warmth. When I saw the wool blankets on your website, I remembered them from when I was growing up, and how warm they were and immediately placed my order. When the blanket arrived I immediately put it on the bed, and I can happily say, I haven't heard one complaint from my hubby!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TVCS fan GREAT size
I miss the blankets of earlier years--the ones that are soft and have satin binding all around--the ones not made of fleece. This blanket has the qualities I want, AND it fits on my bed! I have a king-sized bed with a mattress that is 13-14" deep. When placed the long way on the bed, this blanket will allow me to have a decent-sized turn-down cuff at the top and still have plenty of length to tuck under the bottom of the mattress. On the sides it doesn't fully go to the bottom of the mattress. If turned the other way, I can place the blanket on the bed without a turn-down cuff and still have about six inches to tuck under the bottom of the mattress; the sides of the blanket will hang down far enough to cover about one-half of the box spring.
I have not yet washed the blanket, so I cannot give an opinion on that feature.
