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.
The fleece is awesome and warm enough when it's not too cold such that you don't even need the heater. The heating part works well. It takes thechill out and is easy to use. Otherwise, heats up nicely and quickly.
The material is very soft and snuggled. It turns itself off so i don't have to worry about him overheating. The mink side is soft and not silky soft but just right.
Would recommend and buy again. The fact that i can select the heat setting is a plus for me. You won't be disappointed.
The fleece side of this throw is soft, but the other side is an extremely thin velour. It no longer heats up and it's quite cumbersome not lightweight. The control turns on automatically sometimes so must unplug when not using.
