I've had my navy blue Vellux blanket for our Queen size bed for several years now. It's amazing at how this blanket holds warmth! In fact, we use it as a bedspread. Sometimes, it gets a bit *too* hot!

If you're looking for an attractive blanket that's warm and soft, Vellux is a wonderful choice for your bedding needs. It's well worth the price!
