Colonial Down Alternative Blankets

These are not your typical colonial down blankets here, folks! No way! These guys might pierce their ears and wear some clothes that make the moms say, "What?!" But, look: they're comfy! And really, what more can you ask for?

Anyone know if this is more like a comforter or a thinner blanket? Can't tell from the pictures.

Adding to maxfleisher's comment, does anyone know if this is classified as a

light

,

medium

or

heavy

weight comforter? Heavy weight ones will melt artic ice.

They look warm and soft...
Unfortunately they also look very hard to clean & have come out as good as new.

from another site:

"For most of bed coverlet kind of comforter (or bedspread, quilts), the filling in is 80-120 gsm. They are good for summer or an extra layer during winter. Except in very warm surrounding, this kind of filling in is not good enough for winter."

This one is listed at 120 GSM under "Specs", which is quite light.

They say machine wash, though a front load washer and dryer are recommended.

Thank goodness there is a "fungai" color. I was beginning to wonder if any of these would match my sheets that are washed once a year!

Perhaps you meant "Will keep arctic ice solid"...since blankets are just insulators.

Oooh. I wonder if the insulation has any melamine in it. Or if it was made from faux seal pups killed with melamine-tainted seal food.

At this price you thought it wouldn't be? Perhaps you were hoping for Bangladesh, or Vietnam?

I wouldn't call it a "Thin Blanket" It is very nice. I bought one, wish I would have bought another!
