A natural for layering, our organic cotton blanket infuses a room with sumptuous texture and warmth. Woven of certified organic cotton using organic dyes, this eco-friendly blanket is soft, comfortable, completely machine washable and offered in a spectrum of gorgeous hues. Exclusively by The Company Store.
I got this 100% organic cotton knitted blanket by The Company Store because I needed a medium weight blanket for our spare bedroom bed. The weave is fairly loose and the finished surface has a beautiful, squared pattern textured surface. It was this overall look of the blanket that prompted me to get it. The specifications list the overall size as 90 x 96 and although I didn’t get out my tape measure it does fit the queen size bed perfectly. It is labeled as being machine washable. It is very soft to the touch and I think it has a high quality look and feel. I did read some of the reviews for this blanket before ordering it. Some reviewers claimed that it easily developed pulls in the yarn and pilled when machine washed. While I didn’t experience either of those problems I don’t doubt that both could happen. Remember, this is a LOOSELY KNITTED COTTON BLANKET. It cannot be handled as if it is a fine wool blanket or one with a similarly tight weave. I would not use this on a child’s bed nor on a bed that saw every day use if you want to keep it in pristine condition. When I washed it I used the “hand wash” cycle and cold water. I dried it on lowest heat and through my dryers cool down cycle. To my eyes the blanket looked virtually identical to the way it looked before I washed it. My point is that this a beautiful, textured, knitted cotton blanket that is not for every bed that is used everyday. But when it is used more gently it looks and performs wonderfully. Just as I wouldn’t put a fine Persian rug in our family room I wouldn’t used this blanket anywhere that gets anything other than careful use.
Pros: Comfortable, Excellent Quality, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Well Made
Cons: not for heavy use to keep in best appearance

Cotton blankets make exceptional, all-season covers for bed, sitting on the couch...wherever one needs a bit of warmth. This particular blanket is an excellent example of such. It's attractive, not too heavy and best of all warm. Don't expect it to be comparable to a down comforter, but - then again - that's not what it's made to compete with. It is deceivingly warm however and well worth the price. I'm very happy with it and the price was very competitive with that of most other similar styles of blanket. It folds nicely and can be stored in an area roughly the size of a bath towel. If you're in the market for a cotton blanket you can't go wrong with this one.

Warm, cozy, and heavy, a great blanket for a cool spring night. The queen size is big enough to hang over the edge of the bed on three sides so you're not fighting your partner for it. It can be machine washed on gentle, however, as one reviewer noted it may shrink, but a little use should stretch it back out. The blanket did arrive with a couple of snags, and that's just part of owning this type of blanket. Because the threads were not broken I just grabbed opposite edges of the blanket and pulled a little bit and the snag was gone. It is a bit pricey for a blanket, but being made of organic materials and not synthetic, you get what you pay for; a comfortable blanket that will last for years.

I love the look and feel of cotton! This knitted blanket is no exception! It is light in weight however large in size! We have a king size bed and this provides just the right coverage for a light summer cover. Being machine washable is a real plus - if it gets dirty, just pop it in the washer and then tumble dry. Since it is cotton it may shrink a little - but also with proper care will last for years.
It did come with a couple of snags in it - however, being cotton, we just pulled opposite sides and they disappeared.
