I bought the Clementine Throw Blanket in May 2014. I LOVE it! I have machine washed it many times and it comes out new looking every time.
I am thinking of ordering several blankets as gifts.
I am wondering if different patterns are made from different fabrics, due to the negative comments posted.
My blanket in the Clementine pattern is wonderful!

Fabric has been changed
Previously I purchased 5 throw blankets. The fabric was beautifully soft and silky, and washed well. Recently I purchased the throw blanket in Pink Swirls. The fabric is not the same. It’s a rather flat fleece. When a company changes the fabric of a popular product so significantly that it reduces the quality, it should change the product name, description and price, and not continue to display positive reviews of the former product. In disappointment, I returned the blanket.

I have 2 Vera throw blankets ,the first one I got was the Provencal pattern ,it washed up beautifully no shedding I love it,but I purchase another one in Tutti Fruity pattern and when I washed it I litteratly thought it was falling apart when I took it out of the washer! (I followed washing instructions on label) ive washed it 3 times now and it still is shedding and gets lint on everything....seems others are having the same trouble and complaints ... I wish I could trust buying another but won"t be doing so.I am a regular VB costomer.

Washed up great!
I love this blanket. Soft, warm and cozy. I read the reviews about washing the blanket. I just washed it today. I followed the direction here on the website and it turned out wonderful! Looks brand new. I own four of these blankets. My son loved mine so much I bought him one. Then I caught my husband using mine so I bought him one. I bought another one to use at hockey games. They pack up nicely and fit in my tablet tote perfectly.

Best throws ever.
I love these throw blankets. I have two Yorkies and they love them also.
We like to snuggle with these blankets when we watch TV or take a nap. They are so comfortable everyone that comes to my home enjoys them also. I wash them at least once a week and have given them as gifts at Christmas to all my friends and service people. Everyone loves them. Best throws ever.

Loved this blanket, but disappointed as well
I purchased multiple Vera throws, had them all monogrammed and gave away as graduation gifts! My daughter fell in love with it & I decided to let her keep one. I washed and dried it by itself the first time & it turned out beautifully but the second time was a disaster! As stated by other customers, mine started "beading up" and producing all sorts of lint. The GOOD NEWS ..... I just hung up with Vera Customer Service & they are sending me a prepaid mailing label to return blanket & sending a replacement!!! BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE AROUND!

Awesome blanket, washes great!!
I have four of these in the chest in my living room; I always buy another when they're on sale. These are the most comfortable throws I've ever used! I love to have a light blanket on me even in the summer months while relaxing in the living room and so does my son. This fits the bill perfectly as they're not too thick to get us hot or sweaty. And they're warm enough for winter months because the fabric is so plush. We have a golden retriever who loves to cuddle so our clothes, blankets, everything collect quite a bit of hair. These get washed at least once a week and are no worse for wear! I HIGHLY recommend this blanket for all year. Just wash on cold, delicate and throw in the dryer with a dryer sheet on medium and you're good to go!!

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!

Love my throw!
I ordered the Venetian Paisley and its gorgeous. I have the robe in the Heather, and it feels the same. I am so glad I got this, I will enjoy it this fall/winter, can't wait! Would love more!!!

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.
