The blanket is very light so easy for mom to pull up. My brother absolutely loves the lite weight and color. Such a pretty color. Customer service is great.
The blanket has 3 settings and it stays on for 10 hours. I have used this on multiple occasions as a large heating pad.
Don't even bother plugging it in anymore. A dial is preferable. The cord from the bottom of the blanket to the controller is very short.
For me, the lowest setting (warm) is far too low. This blanket has an edge of at least 1 foot of material with no warming wires in it.
This blanket is very soft and drapes nicely on the bed. It is plush but not heavy. Just unboxed and plugged in, heated up very warm within a couple minutes.
Overall size is about 7'x5', with heating coils a bit over 6'x3' but that's fine for someone about 6' tall. About 6' from the wall plug to the controller and about 8" from the controller to the blanket connector. High; bake you like a potato.
The fleece bunches up and works its way to the bottom. Yes, it's soft but way too lightweight. It's not as warm as i thought it would be.
