Overheard on Twitter: Gabby: I hate when it's hot under the covers but cold outside them. Judah: They have this thing called a fan... G: It's on, but it's still hot under the covers. J: Try Berkshire Blanket Polartec, they are really breathable. G: You're too fancy for me! J: Not really. They're not dirt cheap, but they're not super expensive either.
Care Instructions
We want your blanket to stay as soft as the day you brought it home! To keep it looking and feeling its best, machine wash with your usual detergent separately in cold water on the gentle cycle. Use only non-chlorine bleach as needed. Tumble dry using the air setting (no heat) or line dry.

Worried that line drying will take too long?
Good news! The washing machine's spin cycle does a great job of getting most of the water out, so your blanket won't take very long to dry.

Other things to keep in mind: High heat and excessive agitation will damage this product and we would hate for that to happen!

How do you stay away from these troublemakers?
Easy - make sure you don't overload the washer or dryer (washing it separately really is best), use the gentle cycle, and don't use any heat in the washer or dryer. And definitely never iron it!

Because gas dryers have a higher level of heat than their electric counterparts, we recommend that you avoid using them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Survived the Kitty Test At the start of the fall I purchased a cotton blanket that after two weeks looked like I had it for years. To be fair, my cats are pretty hard on a soft blanket. I decided to give this one a try and am I glad that I did. Regardless of the amount of stabbing the cats have done to it, the blanket held up well. Better still, it seems to just shed cat fur. While other blankets seem to collect fur, this one doesn't have that characteristic at all. In addition, this is warm, but not too warm, and is soft and comfortable. Good purchase at a great price. Highly recommend for pet lovers who share their bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice subtle pattern I have been using this for about 3 weeks and love it. I would have probably given it 5 stars, but I haven't washed it yet and am not sure how well it will hold up. This is a light weight blanket, I live in Texas so it works great as an extra layer during the winter months. Up north, I think this would be considered more of a summer blanket. The color is nice, I got navy, and the subtle, block pattern makes it look expensive. I saw it at Bed Bath & Beyond and loved the look of it, but they were out of king, so I came directly to Berkshire to find it. The prices here are about the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ventilates well It's very hard to find blankets that aren't 100% cotton that are also breathable. This one seems to have pulled it off. My husband sweats at night if we use a poly blanket. Cotton ones aren't warm enough for me. So I've spent over a year trying to find one that is both warm and breathable. This one has seems that allow air to flow, so he doesn't get too hot. And it's plenty warm for me. It also has a nice, plush, "high end" feel and looks great as a bedspread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Soft I bought this blanket to replace a nearly 30 year old blanket that I received as a wedding gift. It is light, pretty, soft and comfortable. I keep it at the foot of my bed, over my sheet, and pull it up during the night when I get cool. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and exactly as described I bought a queen size blanket to add to my bed under my comforter. I also ordered a twin size and 4 throw blankets. They are warm and soft and my family loves them. Perfect for those cold days.

I would be happy to answer if I could, but I am not seeing a question posted. I am happy with my purchase. The blanket is warm, layers well in the dead of winter, yet lightweight. Size is generous. Hope this helps!

My blanket tag: Microfleece.  Updating: Want color change but perfect weight in FL. The Seresoft material LOOKS like mine. “Polartec” concerns me bc of weight & lack of colors. Need to understand difference. 

Asked by: Vicki04
I’m a Polartec fan. Polartec clothing is used in all military branches, and it is light weight but very warm. I purchased a few blankets for myself, I had to order more after the entire family wanted the Polartec type blankets. Just fluff the blanket if you become cold the blankets are amazing!

How does one decide on the warmth level?  Are there different grades to blankets

Asked by: Lu80
This blanket is a light to mid-weight warmth. Perfect for Spring, Summer and Early Fall, this blanket is also a wonderful layer during the winter months.
