Sometimes you just want a super soft blanket to cuddle with and this blanket delivers. Walking through the aisles of my local Marshall’s I enjoy touching the various blankets and comparing softness. I just love soft fabrics, and the softer they are the more I enjoy them.
We already have plenty of blankets for ourselves and the occasional guest, but when I touched the Fluffie Blanket I just had to try it. It was literally the softest blanket I’d ever felt. And it wasn’t just a thin little thing. Even though it’s a lightweight blanket it has some serious loft to it. I wondered if it would remain as soft as it felt in the store after being washed, if it will pill or leave messy debris all over my house and what our cats would think of it.
If figured if it did pill excessively or didn’t live up to it’s promise of being the “cuddliest blanket ever” I could return the blanket to Marshalls or take advantage of the label’s “Wow guarantee” (see the “Package Details” section of my review, below, for more information).
Given that Marshall’s is kind of an outlet store, there are sometimes not many colors from which to choose. I would have loved a light blue but they had purple, teal, white, beige, and green. They had king, queen/full and throw sizes available as well (Not all sizes had all colors). I chose a king size blanket in beige as that would go well in my bedroom without hiding my cats (we’ve had problems with dark blankets and our black cats; when the cats sleep on the dark blanket we cannot see them at night and we’d prefer to avoid sitting on them so we stick to lighter color blankets and comforters).
As I have allergies, the first thing I did upon bringing the Fluffie blanket home was wash it. I was pleased that it didn’t leave debris in my washer and both pleased and very surprised that it left very little lint in my dryer. I was happy to find that it was just as soft after being washed and dried as it was in the store.
Living in the mid Atlantic region means that we have regularly changing weather. It can be 95 degrees one day and 55 the next. I always like to have a blanket on the bed, even in summer. The longer I have this blanket the more I find that I enjoy it. It hasn’t pilled or left debris. It’s a pleasure to sit on the bed and just run my hand through it. The cats adore it and now spend more time on our bed than they do in their usual places (I might have to buy a throw version and sew it into liners for their baskets so they don’t spend so much time on the bed!).
Package Details: The king size blanket is 108 in x 90 in (274 cm x 229 cm), is advertised as “soft & cuddly, lightweight warmth, machine wash & dry” with a “Wow Guarantee: We guarantee that this product will make you say ‘Wow, I’m totally satisfied.’ If it doesn’t, simply return it for a full refund or exchange. For customer service, please call 800-372-2018. 100% Polyester.”
Bottom Line: At $34.99 for my king size blanket this was a decent buy and as I expect to get many years of use out of the super soft Fluffie Blanket, the cost per use should be in the pennies. I am very happy with my purchase and I would definitely recommend it to others.
