Have 3...going to buy some more!
I have them in lili bell, midnight blues and julep tulip. They are the best!
Warm, soft, snugli. I have washed the first two....alone, on warm, and dried with dryer sheet for 20 minutes. They came out wonderful! There was some lint in the dryer, but, none anywhere else. I hope the next ones wash ok. These make great gifts too!

Fuzzy, warm, and goes great with my comforter
I like to find patterns that sort of match, such as the color or the way they are designed. I have the heather patterned blanket and the indigo pop patterned comforter. They match because of their cool colors. The blanket is also very soft and fuzzy. I live up north and in the winter it gets really cold at night and my blanket is so fuzzy and warm that it keeps me toasty warm. I like soft and fuzzy things like the VB robe and my coke pants. Even in the summer I sleep with my blanket. The blanket will be a colorful piece to your VB collection and your bedroom.

My magic blanket! So warm and cozy! Washes great!
I love my blankets! I have a few of them, and they are the warmest most coziest blankets ever. I have gotten them for my family members, and they all love them too. Even my dad has one in canyon. On a cold night I like to cover up with my "magic vera blanket" and then put my covers and other blankets on me. I put it up by my neck and ears. I sleep like a baby with that thing!
I have not had any problems with them in the wash- I have washed them by themselves on a smaller load on gentle, and put them in the dryer on low for 20 min. They have been washed many times and still are as good as when I got them. At the store they said don't wash it with other items because you might get the lint issue described in the other reviews.
PS- My 91 year old great grandma has one and will go to bed early just to lay under her blanket!

Great blanket, horrible in the wash
I got this blanket about 3 months ago and LOVED it. The pattern is so pretty and the blanket was so soft and warm. I washed it once and didn't have a problem, so I figured it would be okay to wash another time. WRONG. This blanket shed so badly and now I have little blue lint balls attached to all of my clothing. I really want to love this blanket, but this issue made it a waste of money. I don't understand why I only had a problem the second time; there was no problem the first time I washed it!

Which colors are shedding & which are washing OK?
I bought 7 of these beautiful blankets in July 2013 for myself, and as gifts. My Canyon, Midnight Blues, and Dogwood blankets shed so bad, even after multiple washings, that I returned the whole lot, minus the Tutti Frutti, which had already been given as a gift. Fortunately the Tutti Frutti washed up beautifully. I would like to buy more of these beautiful blankets, but would love to know if the lint problem is based on color, or the luck of the draw. When posting, please include the color of your blanket, and whether it had lint problems when washing, or washed up beautifully, when leaving your review.

Great Throw for everyday use!
I LOVE my throw. It is so soft and perfect for the couch or bedroom as extra warmth. And it comes in so many color options it will work great for anyone's home! I have washed it several times and it holds up perfectly. I want to get a few more for myself and to gift! Love this item. Mine is in Plum Crazy.

Best Blanket Ever
I put off buying this blanket for a while due to all the comments about LINT and PILLING, but then decided to buy my first one in December - I have two, have gifted three, and just ordered two more. Love them!!
The "Lint & Pilling" may be color related (not sure). The following have washed and dried perfectly: Lilli Bell, Go Wild, Sun Valley & Julep Tulip.
Why the Best?
The blankets are Very Soft, Light Weight, Warm & Cozy, Pretty and Great Size (for one person short or tall, big or small). Get one, you'll enjoy it.

I have tons of Vera Bradley products and LOVE them all, but I am so disappointed in this blanket. It is the softest blanket ever, but just like the last reviewer stated, it leaves lint EVERYWHERE. I have washed it several times by itself and can't get rid of it, so I am hoping I can bring it to a VB store and get some sort of credit. It's really too bad...:(
