Merino Wool Blanket
HArd to Find Blankets
Out here on the west coast blankets appear to have gone the way of the dodo bird. All you can find are duvets or comforters. Vermont Country Store to the rescue! Your Merino blanket is wonderful and there is an additional benefit. When my wife was a child, the satin binding was an important comforter for her; she called it "bonnet." There is actually bonnet on all four sides of the VCS merino blanket--Wow!

It must be a popular blanket because they were out of stock until after Christmas. Upon receipt my wife was happy except for the price. The blanket is warm, light weight and well made with a double stitched binding around the edge. It fully covers our kingsize bed with overhang to spare. The softness is better than the typical wool blanket. My only concern is what it will look like after the first wash.

A wonderful blanket
It gets cold in the mountains of North Carolina and this blanket kept me warm.

Not machine washable
It appeared to be made well with a nice satin binding. However, I didn't get beyond the care instructions - hand wash. . . . The description said machine washable. I didn't even unfold it, just sent it back. I just couldn't see myself hand washing a king size blanket! I would have kept it if it had been machine washable.

Very Fine Blanket
This blanket is everything it was touted to be soft,
warm and generous in size. Merino wool is a high
end product and your blanket is reasonably priced.
We will be buying more.

So much more than we expected.
Our blanket was so light I wondered if we'd need more to keep us warm. One night convinced us - it's the warmest and lightest wool blanket we'd ever seen. No heavy covers on our toes. We have anold wool blanket that is getting washed and put away. We won't need it this winter.
Our new blanket is bound on all 4 sides - with double stitching on the binding. It's extra wide, and long too, on our queen size bed. No more cold backs.
The quality makes it worth every penny. We're so glad we bought it.

I've been looking for this for years!!
This is the kind of blanket I grew up with and haven't been able to find one for ages! It actually fits properly on my king size bed, and the color (sage) is just as it's shown. I'm so pleased with my purchase!

a blanket from the good old days
This blanket reminds me of those we had from our childhood. Soft and warm and of a very generous size. We have a king-size bed and this blanket covers it perfectly. My husband and I are completely satisfied with this product. Sweet dreams!!
