My latest weapon in the battle against achy joints and cold! Occasionally, I find myself with painfully achy knees and back at the same time, and two heating pads just don’t cut it. I used this blanket the other night and it worked wonderfully! Total warmth coverage everywhere I needed it. So, a few details…
It is not a quilted as I expected. “Technically” it is, indeed, quilted, but there is no stuffing between the layers. That said, the fabric is soft with a nice texture. I could feel the wiring and at first though it would be uncomfortable so I layered a thin blanket underneath but really didn’t need it and ended up taking it out. When I woke up in the morning I was wrapped up like a toasty burrito and very snuggly!
The dial lights up so it’s easy to find in the dark and adjust up or down as needed. The big dial is easy to use even with stiff hands. I could see accidentally turning it off (or a cat stepping on the button and doing so) but it’s not really an issue. I do rather wish I had chosen a different color- it’s sort of old-army-blanket brown, but I didn’t choose it to be decorative. I do really like that it’s machine washable and that you can toss it in the dryer! Hubby has had a bad cold the last few days so I’ve been camping in the guest bedroom, which is not well-insulated. This blanket is getting a workout! I also really liked the price- overall I am very, very happy with my purchase. :}
I should also mention that I like the automatic shutoff feature, so if I get up in the morning and forget to turn it off it will do it for me. Bonus!
