What People Are Saying:

Very soft and lightweight. Exactly what I was looking for.. It’s very soft on your skin. Directions say it’s machine washable but not to put it in the dryer. Well, I put mine in the dryer on super low heat delicate and it did just fine and didn’t shrink.  Update:11/19/19

Liked the first one so much I ordered a second.” -Nurse727

A Heated Blanket to Keep You Cozy AND Warm

What People Are Saying: 

This blanket is super warm and heated up super fast. I use heated blankets year round and have tried several brands. This is my favorite one so far for quality of fabric and quality of heating evenly. I like that the plug has a small button that keeps the power cord clasped in and prevents the blanket from coming unplugged when you adjust, which has been the biggest complaint of other blankets I’ve used.” -Christian & Brooke F.

Up your bedding style with this gorgeous chunky knit blanket. Available in various sizes, this is the perfect option if you’re looking for a larger throw blanket or even a decorative bedspread!

You know those blankets your great-grandmother would knit, so thick, warm, and cozy? This ERLYEEN Chunky Knit Blanket is what she would’ve been pumping out if she was on performance enhancing substances. This mega plush blanket is made of acrylic material with some of the thickest knitting I have ever seen. It’s 40×80 inches in size and will lull you to sleep with its soft but slightly heavy embrace. I probably wouldn’t suggest it for children as it needs to be used with care.” -Sara

I ordered this to cover an orange sofa that no longer matched the rest of the furniture. This fit the sofa perfectly and has been the topic of conversation when our guests sit on it.

What People Are Saying:

“I absolutely adore this throw. I read through the comments about it being rough; it’s not meant to be cashmere and I don’t find it rough in the least. It’s soft as it should be based on the thread used. The tassels are not loose threads. I like the look and the unfinished metallic mustard thread adds character. It’s a beautiful pattern and the throw works perfectly with my sofa. I can’t wait to read my book and cuddle with it.” -K. Gabriel

Just received barely 30 minutes ago and I already want another one in a different color. Love the color of this one, it’s lightweight and oh sooo soft. I want more! I am even contemplating buying another of the same color just to have two of them already. I would’ve uploaded photos, but it just looks much better in person due to the depth or richness of color, and characteristics of the fabric! It has a beachy bohemian vibe too.” –Shauna

“A light, warm, very soft and full-body sized throw blanket, just like I wanted.” -Olga H.
