Pretty cool!
Having never owned a weighted blanket before, I wasn't sure what to expect. I bought 2 throws, one 12 lb and one 20 lb for me and my husband. One throw length is big enough to fully lay across the top of our queen size bed and 2/3 the way down. We share the 20 lb here. Works great! It provides immediate warmth when getting under the covers! Beautiful plush material! The ties inside work ok but the blanket still bunches up in places. The 12 lb is used as a therapy blanket stationed over a recliner and used in conjunction with an electric foot massager we have. Delightful! The weight of these blankets is so heavy they need a stationery home. Quite cumbersome to move very far. Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase!

Very disappointed- weight doesn't stay put
Bought this blanket after reading tons of positive reviews, and was very disappointed. The blanket construction does not include any baffles, so there's nothing to keep the weight from sliding right off of you the minute you get under it. I suppose if I had it dropped in my lap on the couch, it would be comfortable and heavy, but as a blanket it doesn't do what it's supposed to do. The weight slides right off and you're left with a very thin - but very fuzzy - blanket. I'm leaving it at 2 stars because it's warm and soft, my cats love it, and when I want to sit on the couch I guess it'll feel cozy. But as a weighted blanket, it doesn't do the one thing it's supposed to.

My daughter loves it!

I purchased it for my daughter, as she really wanted one. She loves it... uses it not only to watch TV in, but she sleeps with the blanket every night. She also did say the weight itself really makes her feel more calm. I may have to get myself one too :)

vellux blanket

i was skeptical, but i read the reviews. i thought i would take the plunge and im glad i did. it is well worth the money. i love this blanket. i cant wait to go to bed now!

Buying for the whole family

Great product! Bought the 12lb version for my fiance and she loved it! The cover is amazingly soft and super comfortable. The best part about the blanket though is the removable cover. Now my family and her's are asking for them for Christmas!

This Blanket is Amazing!!!

This is the most amazing product I have ever bought for my home. I have just bought all my Christmas gifts all weighted blankets and throws!! Even Red for Christmas.. thank you for making our lives more cozy and warm!

Warm and cozy!

I am enjoying my throw! The 12 pound one is just the right weight; I think the others would've been too heavy for me. very soft material. Although you may have to move it around some to get the full weight coverage (because of the beads moving around), it's not a big deal. It's worth it!

Very Soft and Comfy

When I first used the blanket I thought I needed a 15lb. instead of the 12lb. that I purchased. It seemed as though it slayed on me rather lightly. As I relaxed with it for a while I realized that it was just right. The weight seemed to set on me as my body relaxed.

The only thing I don't like is that I do feel like I'm always adjusting it because the weighted beads tend to shift more to one side.

Hi Erin, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I’m sorry to read of your recent experience with the weight shifting and would love to hear more about what’s going on. Please email us at contactus@wphome.com.

Unpleasant smell

I really like the texture and weight of this blanket, but there is a very unpleasant chemical smell emanating from the interior blanket. I decided to hang on to the blanket for a week to see if it would go away, but a toxic smell still lingers.

Would not purchase again

The weighted beads don't stay in place so the weight within the blanket is uneven. Doesn't do much for me apart from take up space
