Want the warmth of a comforter but the cozy softness of a blanket? Hate how stiff, heavy and bulky some comforters feel? Want a stylish yet cozy throw for watching movies on the couch or reading a good book? We love the microfiber Sherpa Blankets and Throws by Bedsure.
DESIGN & FABRIC: WHAT MAKES BEDSURE UNIQUE
The blanket has a reversible design with a soft flannel face on one side and a plush Sherpa on the reverse side. The flannel top is 220 GSM, which is the grams per square meter, the measurement of the weight of a fabric. The higher the weight of a fabric, the more expensive that fabric is. For reference, a t-shirt is generally around 100 to 130 GSM. The Sherpa reverse is 280 GSM. This is an optimal weight balance of being a quality fabric that tends to be more expensive, while still being comfortable enough to not feel too heavy or bulky. It is a shrink-resistant fabric.
MY BEDSURE EXPERIENCE
I ordered the 60×80 inch blankets and a 50×60 inch throw size is also available.
I selected two of the many beautiful color choices and they arrived true to the pictures. There are several color options available including Navy, Brown, Light Grey, Light Blue, Red, Green, Purple, Dark Grey, Olive Green, and Washed Blue.
SOFT LUXE YET LIGHT WEIGHT SHERPA
The blanket and throw are advertised as “All Season” and, from my experience, I would agree. We had a couple of unseasonably cold nights recently and, upon finding myself unexpectedly freezing in the middle of the night (with the heavy winter blankets already stored away), remembered the newly arrived and as yet unpacked Sherpa blanket in the corner, which provided a very pleasant rescue. Despite being as light as a cloud, it was delightfully warm and cozy.
It was only the following morning that just how attractive the blanket is became of interest. It looked every bit as good as it was pictured and, in my opinion, even better. The flat side has a slight sheen and features a nicely finished four-inch border with mitered corners. The reversible “Sherpa” side is a deeply-textured microfiber representation of the homespun wool from which it takes its’ name. Sherpa faux-fur fabric alone sells in the $15- a -yard range, making this quality blanket with these dimensions quite a bargain.
While there is a superior body to the fabric, it’s at the same time, as I’d mentioned, lightweight. Being a person who likes some cover even in hot weather, I’m looking forward to (and I understand my anticipation will be realized by Wednesday of this week when the weather is projected to be especially warm) using the Sherpa blanket when its’ warm enough to turn on the air conditioner.
Another feature that I love is there are no scratchy edges to any seam or stitching. The face and reverse are bound with decorative knit-trim edging that gives a luxe look and feels well made. I like having no loose strings or stitching.
ALTERNATE WEAVE PATTERNS
The throws not only come in different colors but different textured weave patterns including a navy and a dark gray knit that has a cabled sweater type pattern, and the ivory throw has an Irish knit look I find very appealing for having on the Queen Anne style chair in my library. I definitely want to add one of the textured- basket weave models as either another blanket or a throw. I’m so pleased with the two I did choose and now have an excuse to get another!
BedSure offers a 30-day return and replacement service, plus a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty.
Ideal for a year round blanket for extra cozy warmth, the Bedsure blanket is lovely for personal use or makes a guest feel luxuriously pampered in a guest room. I love how it coordinates with warm autumn colors as seen here, and the olive green makes florals really pop. The luxe feel adds visual texture that compliments so many bedding fabrics and is very appealing to the touch!
The Bedsure throws and blankets are also suitable for use on a favorite TV chair or couch for streaming movies, or to stay warm while reading a good book by the fireplace in the winter, for extra warmth in the car, and a to have as a spare blanket in a guest bedroom to pamper your guests.
