I have several wool blankets but only had 1 as soft as the Arcturus. Great size and I like the color options.
I bought two of these blankets for camping and couldn't be happier. Seem to be really made well and warm. Haven't washed either blanket yet and yes expect some shedding if used right out of the box. Used them over the top of a sleeping bag and when removed considerable amount of wool lent on bag. I'm sure once washed a few times this problem will go away. Anyway, I thought really good quality for the money no complaints.
My new blanket feels luxuriously thick. The colours I chose for the Buffalo plaid made for a handsome piece of gear. I havent used my blanket yet, but spring is like, five minutes away.
The blanket arrived in a timely manner. My favorite thing about this quality blanket is the heavy weight. I use it folded for extra warmth on the sofa on chilly evenings. Seems like it will have a long life of use. Also, like the unique olive and black Buffalo plaid. I will be keeping these blankets in mind for gifts, as well as likely ordering additional ones in the future.
I have two wool blankets that are somewhat old. I order this wool blanket from Arcturus just before Christmas as a Christmas gift for my better half. When I recieved it the bag was very heavy 5 + lbs. Holy Moly... I wrapped it and then she opened on Christmas. What a awesome warm heavy weight blanket. For this price it was a steal. This is probably the nicest wool blanket I have seen on the market to date... and at this price point its the best wool blanket at the best price! Don't hesitate to buy one if your looking for a warm heavy,soft ( not prickly) wool blanket to cuddle up to in the winter. Thank you Arcturus for a great product!
