The New Englander - Reversible Blanket
- Inspired by the chilly winter weather on the east coast, we wanted to create the optimal plush blanket to keep you warm on the coldest of nights. We started by pairing two of our coziest fabrics, fluffy Sherpa and soft Melange Sweaterknit, to make this the reversible blanket of your dreams! Lastly, we added extra charm by finishing the edges with a classic whipstitch border.
- Fabric: Melange Sweaterknit
- Size: The twin is 60 x 90, full/queen is 90 x 90 and the king is 108 x 90 inches.
- Warmth: Heavyweight
- Border: Whipstitch
- Reverse: Sherpa
- Fabric height: Medium-High
- 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 Mmmv from Comfy Cozy and keeps me Warm I received my blanket this winter and boy has it come in handy. I keep mine in the living room on the couch and rather than turning up the heat I stay nice and warm all wrapped up under the blankets. The underneath is soft and warm and the top of the blanket actually must be stain resistant, accidentally spilled juice but rather than soak through it pooled up easy to clean and left no stain. Great Blanket!!! I bought this for myself and now my husband is hooked on this blanket.Date published: 2018-01-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Mps72 from Best blanket! Ordered this blanket on a whim, never hearing of this company. I love the blanket so much that I immediately sent an email to the company telling them just that! The blanket is so soft, perfect to snuggle up on the couch with.Date published: 2017-10-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew from Best blanket ever.

This is the softest and most cozy blanket I've ever owned. I recommend it to everyone!Date published: 2018-02-01Rated 5 out of 5 by JO Soriano from Favorite Blanket Bought the New Englander Sherpa blanket (blue) and I can honestly say it’s my favorite blanket, ever. It’s not too hot but keeps me warm and cozy throughout our Iowa winters.Date published: 2020-01-18Rated 5 out of 5 by SPHB from It’s Mine My son accidentally left this blanket when he was home over winter break. As with the story of “The Three Bears,” it’s “just right!” Not too soft, Not too heavy. Just the right weight. The coziest. Hope I can encourage him to “accidentally” forget it when he returns to school in August. I think it belongs to his girl-friend!Date published: 2019-05-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob K from So Comfy This is the softest, most comfortable blanket I've ever owned. The sherpa lining is so comfortable. It's almost TOO warm at times, but I'm sure I'll be using it quite a bit this winter. The blanket is also HUGE. I probably should have looked at the dimensions before ordering. It still washed and dried with no problems in a standard machine.Date published: 2020-09-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Christine C from Like sleeping on a cloud Berkshire simply have the best blankets on the market. The inside of this is so buttery soft it is like sleeping on a cloud. It is heavy enough to keep me warm but not so heavy that it weighs you down. It is like a giant sweatshirt, so comforting.Date published: 2020-10-12

Hi! I just received my blue mist blanket and wonder if you can tell me how I may lighten it? May I mix water with Clorox? Thank you!Hi Kathy, we do not recommend using bleach with any of our products - it will significantly compromise the fibers and damage your blanket. Hope that helps, stay cozy!Date published: 2020-05-18
WHERE ARE YOUR BLANKETS MADE?Hi there Jackson, thanks for your question! Berkshire Blanket is proudly rooted in New England where we got our start over 25 years ago. Every cozy goody we make is designed right here in our historic Massachusetts mill by our skilled product team. However, as we’ve grown, we’ve had to move the stitching and sewing to bigger facilities that could handle the larger volume and still produce the same quality that our customers have come to know and love. The country of origin is China for the majority of our products, but fabrics are sourced globally and a number of our products are made in other countries as well, such as Peru and India. Stay cozy!Date published: 2020-05-18
Does the ivory colored side cover the whole expanse of the blanket or is it just a trim?Thank you for your interest in our New Englander Reversible Blanket. This blanket is amazingly comfortable and warm due to the Sherpa fabric (the "ivory" side), which lines the entire reverse of this blanket. Hope this helps you!Date published: 2019-03-26
Is the cadet blue a light blue or a dark blue?Hi Abbie, thank you for your question! Cadet Blue is normally a dark shade of navy blue, however, on the New Englander Reversible Blanket, the heathered look of the Melange Sweaterknit fabric makes the Cadet Blue appear lighter. Hope this helps!Date published: 2019-02-08

is this blanket stitched through both layers throughout to prevent separation when laundered?It is not machine stiched like their other blankets. It has more of a decorative yarn stich around it. I am not sure how well it will hold up in wash.Date published: 2020-09-22
