John Lewis Empress Wool Blanket
NOT THE RIGHT BLANKET FOR ME
I bought this blanket for extra warmth over a duvet, but I find it very heavy and not very warm at all. Also, it has a strange smell like scrambled egg which strangely increases after airing outside.
After two uncomfortable weeks I have packed it away and bought a cotton/acrylic blanket instead which is warmer and lighter.

Warm, very large
I got the largest size, for a queen sized bed it is very generous. Very soft and warm without feeling stifled.
One thing is that the colour is not white at all, it is yellow. They do warn you but they really should change the name to cream or indeed yellow, as its far closer to yellow than white.

Perfect blanket for the winter
Very good quality. The wool keeps you warm but it is breathable so you don't sweat. It is then perfect for winter time and mid-seasons. The only thing that could be improved is the side which should be finished as the top and bottom.

Bought two more of these today from the Bluewater store for guest beds, my quilts are now obsolete, wonderful !
Bedmaking is now a pleasure rather than a chore. I dreaded every time I struggled to fit a cover.
These blankets seemed at first to be an expensive buy but will last for years, cosy luxury on a winter night yet use just one during the summer and they are light and comfortable, no 'kicking them off ' because you get too warm.

Excellent quality blanket
Having recently been reading the benefits of wool as a 'temperature regulator' decided to try these pure merino blankets. They are beautifully soft and warm without being too heavy. Keeps you warm when its cold and vice versa. Quality is excellent and well priced .

Hadn't realised quite how worn our old blankets were. This has been so cosy even in this very cold snap! We only have a cellular blanket with it and just love the softness.
