You can machine wash this blanket and if you carefully follow all the washing instructions, you are assured that this blanket will never fade or stain. Comes out intact when washed in either hot or cold water; dries up pretty fast too.
The blanket is super soft, tender-like, silky, smooth, doesn’t shrink after wash, doesn’t pill up, and despite being thin and lightweight, you will be surprised at how pleasantly warm it is. The packaging is good and in good size and weight so if you intend to buy it as a gift, your gift recipient will definitely love it – it’s also delivered in good time too. If you have pets, they will love snuggling in this blanket.
During cold winter nights, this blanket may not be enough to keep you warm; it isn’t thick. Being smooth makes it a bit slippery so it falls to the floor once now and then. When pets sleep in it, it collects pet fur.
9. Shilucheng Luxury Fleece Blanket

You will get this blanket in four different sizes- queens, kings, throw, and twin- and in ten different colors. Washing it in a machine without adding any bleaching agents and at the right temperature protects it from abrasion, fading, and generally increases its longevity. Its 100% microfiber fabric is shrink resistant and dries up fast.
The blanket is lightweight and conveniently portable so you will comfortably carry it to use in the office or for camping. It is large enough to for three people sitting at the couch to use it when watching TV during winter nights but it is a little too thin to keep you warm in bed during such a season.
The blanket is packaged in a beautiful and plush-looking plastic bag with handles making it a good choice for birthday or Christmas gift. The bag is also good for storage as you will need the minimal of spaces to store the blanket during summer. The hem isn’t well folded and stitched and therefore chances are that the blanket’s microfiber can shed at the edges and corners with time.

Although it looks expensive, the blanket is fairly cheap and affordable. If you dress up the guest room bed with this blanket, you can be sure of getting endless complements. The customer service you will get after ordering and receiving this product is simply exceptional.
The blankets tends to be smaller than they should. If yours is a twin size bed, you will have to order for a queen size blanket otherwise a twin size blanket will not fit well on your bed- king size blanket for a queen size bed and so on.
6. Chanasya Super Soft Long Shaggy Chic Fuzzy Fur
Are you insomniac? Try this beautiful and luxurious blanket and you will be sure to sleep safe and sound all night long. It is a light weight and reasonably thick blanket so it will serve you well during winter and won’t be too warm to during summer.

Use it on a couch and your bedroom turns modern and extremely stylish. If you have a dog whose fur sheds from time to time, then this is the blanket you need to let the pet lie on because it rarely collects pet fur.
The stitching on the edges does not match the overall quality of the blanket- you might be disappointed. The price is also somewhat too high for the quality.
5. Cotton Craft – 100% Soft Premium Cotton Thermal Blanket
There are seven different colors for this blanket, all of which are elegant and stylish enough to blend well with your interior décor. It’s easy to machine wash and dry, and you will not have to worry about fading or discoloration for as long as you follow the washing instructions.
You can use any of the common fabric softeners to make it even more soft and smooth for your skin. Measuring 90” square, this blanket best suits a full size or a queen size bed; using it on a king size bed will be a bit overreaching.
Its fabric is 100% cotton so you can rest assured that the blanket is durable and that it has micro small pores that will not allow your body temperature to escape. Cotton is also soft and allows free circulation of air underneath it – good to cover your full body, or for children and elderly people who struggle to breathe under the blankets.
Even after years of use, you will rarely find loose threads hanging on this blanket. It is an all-season blanket so you will use it all round the year.
Washing the blanket together with clothes of different fabric makes it to pill. The length and width could be a disappointment- definitely not the type of blanket to use on a king size bed.
