- Favorite Blanket
Of course this is a good looking blanket... and it's perfect for allergy sufferers because you can launder it in hot water... but the best thing about this blanket for me is that it is so Lightweight! I can't feel it weighing me down... and it lets a little air through so I don't get too hot and stuffy. When I'm chilled I put a second one over my legs... and I still don't feel the weight on me.
- Dream come true
I ordered two blankets to replace old ones. This is probably the most comfortable blanket one could reach for at night. I have owned vellux blankets for 30 years at least. Unfortunately, i was unable to find in any of our locals retail stores Canada. Other sites i checked before ordering i just didnt trust, mostly fake Vellux, bad odors were reported. Atchoo offered the best prices, fastest delivery, and most of all, complete satisfaction guaranteed. I used them right from the package. Just as i expected. Thank you Achoo!
- Vellux Blanket Washing Surprise
The service from AchooAllergy is superb. The blanket arrived very quickly and was as seen online. I've used Vellux blankets for years, and they are good for allergy sufferers - also warm without weight. I always wash bedding before use, and when I washed the blanket, I was very surprised to see so much residue on the blanket and in the washer and dryer. It was very unusual as I had not seen this with my previous Vellux blankets. Only complaint is the blanket should be washed at the factory before packaging because I was surprised.
- Vellux blanket
I really like these blankets. Previous ones lasted about 20 years. I''ll see how the newer ones hold up now. I wash them when I first receive them. It makes them softer and get the wrinkles out. So far I like this one. I like the sewing around all four sides. Previous one was just sewed at top and bottom. Great blanket!
- Vellux Blanket Sheds
I am disappointed in the vellux blanket I bought because I have washed it twice and both times I had to clean out my washer and dryer from all the lint it leaves in them. I had a vellux blanket for several years and it never did that.I guess things just are not made with the quality they had before.
- Super Soft!
We have had this blanket a few weeks now & I have washed it 2x so far & it holding up great,just a little fuzz in the lint filter. It is SUPER SOFT & a great weight for all year. I have bad allergies & we have 2 little dogs that sleep with us, so I am always washing bedding. I hope it holds up as well as it claims--so far my husband & I both LOVE it!
- Terrific colors, great-looking product.
These are bar none the best Vellux blankets we've found.
- Great bargain for the allergy sufferer.
Our home is filled with allergy- & asthma-sufferers. If you're one too, you know that eliminating triggers in the bedroom is so important. If you don't do all you can, you'll be spending 1/3 of your life in an unhealthy spot. We've been using blankets like these Vellux ones for more than a decade. These are the best & cheapest we've found. In the past we'd bought: terribly thin, oddly colored, &/or skimpy ones, one that almost dissolved in the dryer, ones with a perpetual odd smell that our dogs were suspiciously drawn to. I don't even want to speculate on what caused that last problem! These have none of those problems at all. Colors are marvelous, generous sizes, & they wash & dry beautifully. Here they are, the Vellux blankets of your dreams.
- Great Blanket- Velllux Blanket
This blanket is very soft and comfy. It is warm enough for cold nights and cool enough for using with the air conditioning. My husband is always cold and has not complained once since we started using this blanket. Great Blanket!
- No review title given
The color was very disappointing .... More of a yellow tone

As someone who deals with dust mite allergies on a daily basis, I know I need a blanket that can withstand frequent washings. However, I had no idea how plush the Vellux would be. To my surprise, it is the same blanket that I have always liked at numerous hotels I have stayed in. With one of my own, I can now say the Vellux blanket is my favorite blanket of all time. It is so soft and provides the perfect level of warmth. This blanket is great for the summer time by itself, and it can add some extra warmth in the winter time. My husband loves it too because he is so hot natured and he can't stand to sleep with only a big down comforters or thin sheets. Now we can compromise with the Vellux blanket.
- Lightweight, yet warm
- Durable and washable, stays in same great condition; it even gets softer the more you wash it
- Very soft and cozy to the touch
- Fits the bed perfectly
- Inexpensive, compared to some other blankets, and the quality is unsurpassed
- It's imported. There are a lot of inquiries about finding an American made version of Vellux, but there have only been a few companies make this style of blanket, and none are produced domestically.
In summary, the Vellux blanket provides maximum warmth and unbelievable softness, yet is also breathable, providing the right amount of comfort throughout the year. No wonder hotel owners nationwide furnish their hotel rooms with this plush blanket. I give the Vellux blanket 5 stars.
I really have nothing bad to say about the blanket. It provides the comfort that I want and the hot water wash ability that I need. I would recommend this blanket to dust mite allergy sufferers like myself or to people who want a lightweight, warm, comfortable, and low maintenance blanket. You really can't go wrong with the Vellux.
