- Excellent organic cotton blanket, especially after a wash and dry (clean lint out often!)
I am very pleased with this purchase. When it arrived it didn't smell of any chemicals, definitely strongly of cotton fields! But after a wash (and yes, it does shed, when you dry it, empty out the lint tray a few times to make sure it dries well and to protect your machine), it was soft and not quite as strong in smell, actually it aired nicely and is a great soft, textured layer to our bedding. I love that it's organic, it has a natural cream-white color that goes well with our neutral color scheme.
I read the reviews on this blanket and they are true. Love the comfort and ease of this blanket. After one washing, I was able to tolerate it enough to put on our bed and use. Only thing for ours the sides were a little short, we have a split mattress king size bed but it lays so nice and doesn't fall away from you at all.
- No bad smell on this blanket
Have not washed the blanket yet, but it seems really good quality. The color is nice but a little in the yellow-ish tone. We actually ordered both the 100 weight and the 120 weight. The 120 weight is a prettier weave I think. I would recommend this blanket, and I'm pretty picky. My cat has already snagged it in a couple of places but that isn't a problem with the quality of the blanket. I loved the fact that there was no chemical smell of any kind--which is what I hoped would be the case.
- Great Blanket!
I recently purchased the Allergy Armor Organic Cotton Blanket to go on top of my newly acquired organic bed! I washed the blanket so that it would shrink to the size of my bed. It fits perfectly, looks lovely, & is a very comfortable material. I would highly recommend this blanket!
- A bedding gem
It's becoming more and more difficult to find all natural fiber bedding. We only use cotton, silk and wool. Our old cotton fleece shrank so much we needed to find a new one because I was cold. Most online sites admitted that theirs shrank too- up to 10 percent. We dragged out a spare polyester fleece one for one of our layers until we found one. I've been waking up at 4 am all stuffed up and coughing. When we finally found this allergy armor organic cotton crepe blanket we ordered it immediately. It was way too big and not as impressive looking before we washed it but achooallergy said to go ahead and wash it and if it wasn't perfect, send it back within the time limit. It was perfect! We slept under it last night. Some may think it's crazy, but the difference was amazing. It was calming, comfortable, warm and yet not heavy. We both slept better, right through the night. It is a perfect addition to our silk and wool blankets we use in our cool New England bedroom. I'm sold! We will buy more of these for our family.
- best blankets
I love the blanket. It's very warm and comfortable. Will buy more in the future for other rooms.
Perfect for what I need it for!
- My new favorite blanket
This blanket is fantastic! I was a bit skeptical at first as there was more space between the fibers than I expected, but after the first wash it shrunk to a nice even weave with a beautiful diamond pattern. It's nice to find a well-made blanket that doesn't aggravate my allergies. I definitely recommend this purchase, you won't be disappointed.
- Extremely Wonderful Organic Blanket
I LOVE how soft and luxurious this feels~!! Use it while watching tv and as a throw over my comforter! If you need organic bedding this is GREAT!!!

Allergy Armor Organic Cotton Blankets
Twenty years ago, you would have been hard-pressed to hear much about "organic" products, but as time has passed and awareness of the chemicals found in our everyday items has grown, organics are increasingly making a positive impact in people's lives. For us at AchooAllergy, we have been trying to find the best in healthy bedding products for years, and finally the opportunity presented itself for us to begin constructing our very own line of organic bedding.
As the first pieces in a full line of organic bedding, the Allergy Armor blankets are 100% certified organic cotton blankets made from U.S. grown cotton and proudly sewn at our Atlanta location. Free of chemicals, dyes, pesticides, insecticides and other chemicals associated with modern textile production, the Allergy Armor organic cotton blanket is an excellent fit for those sensitive to chemicals, MCS, asthma, and allergy suffers or anyone simply wanting the benefits of using organic products.
- Superior fabric, 100% USDA certified organic cotton. Grown in the U.S., the Allergy Armor blankets are free of pesticide, fertilizer and chemical residues that are commonly found in cotton textiles, like Aldicarb, Parathion, and other organophosphates. From the weaving and production side, these blankets are free of bleach (chlorine), dyes, wrinkle-resistant treatments, and other finishing agents that accompany other textiles.
- Ideal for year-round use, this lightweight organic blanket is not too warm and not too cold.
- The Allergy Armor organic cotton blankets are machine-washable and stand up to frequent washings without pilling or fraying (though you WILL notice a lot of lint on the first wash and drying - see below). The edges are hemmed then sewn a second time to ensure durability and longevity. (packaged size larger, shrinks to stated size with first washing)
- Made and assembled in the USA - cut, sewn and packaged in our Atlanta location.
What I did not like about the Allergy Armor Blanket
- Currently, it is available in only one color, natural. (contains no dyes though we are working on finding organic dyes)
- On your first wash, you might notice a lot of lint. This is normal for an untreated fabric and will decrease dramatically after the first wash. I highly recommend washing and drying by itself the first time.
While the cost of an organic blanket is typically higher than traditional manufactured bedding, for most people, the benefits far outweigh the initial cost. The Allergy Armor organic cotton blanket is well crafted, durable, and an American made organic product. Crafted from certified organic cotton, these blankets promotes sustainable farming without use of chemical fertilizers and toxic insecticides. Suitable for year round use, the Allergy Armor certified organic cotton blankets are ideal for the chemically sensitive who love the feel of cotton without the harmful chemicals.
I will say though, in general, I highly recommend washing this blanket before use. The reason is you’ll see an enormous difference in the fabric. The first wash allows the cotton fibers to fluff and fill out. You’ll be surprised how different it will look after the first wash. Also, it will shrink down to the regular finished size. They are cut large to account for shrinkage, so when they arrive they’re actually several inches larger than the stated size. A warm/cold or warm/warm cycle will cause the fibers to shrink, while the dry cycle fluffs and allows them to fill out. Be mindful to empty the lint trap a couple times and wash by itself. Because it’s not been processed like cotton normally is, it will shed a lot with the first wash or two.
Hope that helps!
