Vellux blankets are great so I know I will love this one when I receive it ... again.
Had to request a return.
Please note: when ordering online, the product description puts Double/Queen together, with King as the next size up. When product arrived, it was clearly marked on the front to be a Double, and the next size up on the front of the package was Queen/King. I have a Queen bed.
It's not a huge deal but an inconvenience.
Sears might want to update its product description to reflect this - I will leave a comment in Q&A.
Tan colour is lovely and perfect for a neutral decor.

Received this blanket 5 days ago and put it on my bed today. It's certainly not the quality of blanket that used to be produced in the US - not the luxury soft feel and pliability of its predecessor - and its dimensions are smaller. It's lighter in weight as well; however, not the strong chemical smell I was dreading. It will do, but I'm a little sad.

Best winter/summer blanket you will ever have!

Comments about Vellux® Blanket:

There's a review on here that I reported because it's inaccurate. The review states: "It's certainly not the quality of blanket that used to be produced in the US - not the luxury soft feel and pliability of its predecessor - and its dimensions are smaller. It's lighter in weight as well; however, not the strong chemical smell I was dreading. It will do, but I'm a little sad."

I purchased a Vellux blanket when I lived in Virginia, U.S.A. I still have this blanket, so I was fearful that when I received the one purchased here it would not measure up according to the above noted review. Two major points: On direct comparison - this blanket is every bit as soft as the one I have from VA and it's actually finished better because every side is hemmed, whereas the one I have from the states has two sides that are simply left as cut. Yes, the fabric isn't like a woven material so this really hasn't affect the use of it, but it's nice to have finished edges on all side.

Before I make a purchase I try to read all the reviews and I am grateful to the person who points out that if you want a blanket that really covers, then order the King size because for a Queen size bed the double/Queen is too small.

Lastly, I do think if you follow instructions - wash the blanket in cold water every 6 months it will last for many years. I didn't do that with the one I have and after 14 yrs., this manmade fabric has started to part company with itself where I've pulled on it when making the bed. I think that if you wash, it the synthetic fibres will live a longer life. I love these blankets because they're so light weight summer and winter. Much, much nicer than a regular blanket in summer time when it can be humid. I'm delighted!

Loved the blanket but the blue blanket was discoloured (yellowed) along the fold lines and one corner. Will be returning the blanket this week. Very disappointed.

Comments about Vellux® Blanket:

I bought 3 of these recently and had some issues with the sizing as mentioned. If you have a queen bed, order a king size, otherwise it will be marked as a double. Just order the next size up. Washed well,wears well and so soft and perfectly warm for all my beds! The best blanket on the market by far!

Comments about Vellux® Blanket:

I too ordered another one of these blankets, to replace the one our two pups loved chewing on. Have had the first Vellux blanke for over 10 years and it is light, warm, comfortable,soft and matches the rest of the bedding very nicely. Am happy with this purchase.

        Nice soft blanket that lasts for a long time - my last one didn't start wearing until after about 12 years of use. Absolutely no pilling. They really do get softer as you wash them more times.

                The package label in the store gave available sizes as Twin, Double, Double/Queen and King but your web page doesn't give a Double size as available.  Is it possible to get a Double size?  There wasn't one in the store.

                  The difference between the two blankets is the fabric. The Vellux® Blanket is made of Plush nylon fabric with an insulating base while the Vellux® 'Original' Blanket is only made with Nylon with an insulating base.

              • Q:

                Is Sears addressing sizing discrepancy?: When ordering online, the product description puts Double/Queen together (which I ordered), with King as the next size up. When product arrived, it was clearly marked on the front to be a Double, and the next size up on the front of the package was Queen/King. I have a Queen bed.
                Thought Sears might want to update its description for this online.
