Q & As

John Lewis Empress Wool Blanket 4.7 5 19 19
Lovely, light and soft We have been looking to replace our woollen blankets and came across these merino wool blanket in John Lewis. Our experience with merino wool jumpers is that they are warm and yet light. So we decided to give this a try. Bought one and found it is so light, soft and yet warm. So we decided to buy another as a spare. 22 April 2014
Empress almond wool king size blanket Purchased 2 of these lovely blankets. Very warm, light and cosy. My only concern is that they recommend dry cleaning rather than hand washing. 01 January 2014
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. 16 September 2013
Beautiful Quality Excellent blanket, thick and very snuggly.! Beautifully made and really good quality' 08 January 2013
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. 17 December 2012
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. 25 November 2012
Empress Blanket I am so pleased with this Blanket Soft, Light, Warm, Comfort sleeping, that what we need and This blanket delivers for us Thankyou John Lewis and a very prompt service to France. ES 26 July 2012
Absolute Luxury 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. 08 May 2012
