Its a lovely blanket, light enough to use for the summer (it gets quite hot here) my only quibble (and it isn't one that pertains to the quality of the blanket) is that as a cat owner my cats LOVE pulling the strings up so I spend a little time re-weaving the loops they pull out!
Hey Cat! It's a great blanket to accompany you on a summer's sleep. We're happy to hear that you enjoy them... and the cats love them too!
Environmental and equity issues around growing cotton have been on my radar for some years which is why I rarely buy cotton items new and, when I do, I make an effort to go organic.
Recently I was very excited to receive my queen-size waffle blanket made with organic cotton from Black Sheep.
To sleep under this blanket is to feel enveloped in a warm embrace. It is wonderfully lightweight yet keeps me snug on these cold nights (my preference is to sleep with the window open).
I seem to be dreaming more vividly now and remembering those dreams better--do you suppose there's a connection :) ?
Hi Fran! Wow thanks for your kind words! We're so happy to hear that you're enjoying your new organic cotton waffle blanket. It's surprisingly warm and cozy isn't it? We wish you many more wonderful nights of beautiful dreams! :)
This beautiful organic blanket came in a well-made canvas tote which made unpacking a delight. It’s soft and just a little stretchy due to its waffle weave, which is nice for those times when you want to wrap it around yourself. It’s also very breathable and works well with my comforter to create the ultimate nest along with my suffolk mattress and latex pillow which are also superb.
Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to write a review! We love our organic cotton blankets and we're glad you are enjoying it too! It sounds like you have the perfect setup for those days in! Thank you for supporting a small, local business!
Weight is nice for having just over top a sheet in summer and adds extra warmth in winter. Very comfy. Soft and durable
Awesome to hear, thanks Trevor!
