One thing I always remembered about the wool clothing and blankets I had as a kid was the scratchiness of the wool; and I guess because I grew up with it, I associated the texture with happy times. This blanket was actually surprisingly soft for wool, just enough "scratchiness" for me to know its the real thing.
The other characteristic of wool that I very clearly remember was its warmth, even when wet. I haven't tried it out to see if it's still warm when wet; but I can attest to its comfort when it's dry. It's the only blanket on my bed, and I sleep with the window open. In my region it's currently averaging 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit at night, and I haven't woken up cold since I got it. I didn't look at the tag for the wool-vs-other composition, but by the feel of it, there's quite a lot of real wool in it.
Honestly, I didn't read any reviews before I ordered this, I saw the words "Wool Blanket" and saw a color very close to Olive Drab, and ordered it on impulse. In reading other reviews before posting my own, I saw many references to odor. I will say that it has an odor to it that triggers childhood memories, but I don't know that it's necessarily unpleasant. I'm sleeping quite happily with this blanket, and I think I'm going to order another, so I don't have to go without while it's drying. I haven't washed it yet, but I do remember very well how long it takes a wool blanket to dry in the N/W US during the winter. It's pretty key that you don't put these in the dryer, you'll wind up with little pea-shaped balls of scratchiness all over it; and you'll wear it out faster to boot.
The odor people are reporting may have something to do with dye; if that's the case, I can attest to a pleasant "wooly" smell in the green blanket.
Not only would I recommend this, I'm buying another. Possibly two more.
In the laundry I even tried adding some Oxyclean powder, I thought that might neutralize it.
Apparently the odor is common in these types of blankets ?? OK, I didn't know that.
Also, to be fair, I think some people are more sensitive to odors than other folks. If you or family member is fussy about smells, then this will be a factor, at least until it fades. Maybe just don't plan to use it for a few weeks.
The smell is fading a bit, and based on other reviews here, I'll try hanging it outside, worth a try.
And since I've washed it a couple times, I don't feel right about sending it back. And I do like otherwise, and people say the smell will fade.
I'm also wondering if I should try Fabreeze.
If you're curious, it smells a bit like a petroleum product, not gasoline or kerosine, not that bad, but like some type of oil based solvent, or maybe a bit like spray-on locksmith lubricant (but not really WD40). I wonder if it's lanolin, the natural oil that sheep secrete, but I've never smelled that so I don't know.
