I have-not had a chance to use the blanket yet but it seems to me to be of sturdy construction. It resides in my pick up as an emergency blanket.
I bought two of these blankets for everyday outdoor use. They arrived super fast (uncannily fast :).
They're great for throwing on the lawn and laying outside. We used them to keep warm on a jet boat ride in rainy weather and they were perfect. They're soft enough, good looking and excellent quality. I love a good, practical item that doesn't cost a fortune and will last for years.
This is the best wool blanket, hands down, no itching, only thing is it will make a he'll of a mess in the washer a couple of times, follow instructions and use a brush, outside, not inside, really, the best wool blanket in the world, camping, wintertime, very warm, beyond reasonable price, 45 bucks, you need to buy this,
Bad stuff first: I was a bit disappointed when the blanket arrived to find out it is not made in the USA. The blanket is made in India. I prefer to buy USA made products whenever possible to keep American workers employed.
Good stuff: Blanket is a good medium/heavy weight, well made with stitched borders so it won't fray or unravel. Blanket arrived quickly after it was ordered (only a few days to travel from the west coast to New England.) Blanket packed in plastic inside a cardboard box which protected it during shipment. Upon opening the package, the blanket had a normal wool blanket smell. No insecticide/chemical smell similar to odor detected in surplus military blankets I have purchased in the past from other vendors. Blanket color was more pleasant than pictured. Color was sort of mix of olive and pine green. I hung the blanket outside in the sun and breeze for two days before using it.
I am extremely happy with my Arcturus Military Wool Blankets. It reminds me of my military days. We were issued what I believe to be the same wool blanket. The Arcturus Wool Blanket is very warm. I hate the cold so I am very comfortable sleeping with my Arcturus Blanket. One little negative, It sheds a little but not a problem as far I'm concerned. I saw reviews of the wool blankets having an order but I smell nothing at all. GREAT wool blanket
