Alt blanket is very soft to the touch; not bulky; good price!

Just bought the Essential Home Alternative Blanket after an exhaustive search online for a medium, dusty blue coverlet that did NOT reverse to brown or navy!  This is the exact same color and appearance on both sides.  Stumbled across it on sale in the store; all sizes are the same price.  The fabric is extremely soft to the touch, and though the fill is lightweight, not bulky like regular down comforters, it is perfect for milder winter nights.  Have not washed it yet, but the stitching is even and well sewn and the fabric appears to have a high thread count. though it is not stated on the package.  The fabric and batting is all polyester but it looks just like cotton and does not wrinkle easily.  Many designers advise at least some polyester for longer wear and easier care and the package notes it is 100% hypoallergenic.  This blanket can double as a bedspread, though you will probably need a bedskirt.  The colors on the site seem fairly true, although "indigo" is usually dark blue; this is actually dusty or Colonial blue.  Now I am looking forward to some cool weather!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
