Blankets don't last the distance

I bought 2 queens & 2 king blankets Nov 2022. Laundered as recommended. I noticed a king had a rip in one of the layers (they appear to be made of 3 layers). Vellux were happy to replace with another. Unfortunately I have found tears in a queen & another king now. The blankets have been used sparingly & I can't work out why the tears are happening. No other blankets I've purchased in my life have had similar issues. Very disappointed & wouldn't recommend - especially given they aren't even 12 months old. Show details

Vellux blanket disintegrated in my washer!!

I lovet the feeling of the Vellux blankets, especially for home because there are no other peoples cooties in the blanket, but I discovered that washing them, and only after 5 years of having mine, it suddenly decided to fall apart, like it was bad. Not sure why I decided to look in my washer, but wow! spent 2 hours digging this stuff out of my machine not to end up in my drain pipes and paying a plumber.
I don't recommend them for this reason alone. Show details

Do not buy!

My Royal Vellux blanket (made in U.S.A) just started disintegrating for no apparent reason..nothing to do with washing it.

Dreadful product

I just washed one of these blankets in the washing machine and it completely disintegrated. Crumbled material everywhere and has taken me quite a while to get rid of the fabric pieces. Do not purchase these blankets.

I used to buy nothing else for myself, gifts not any more

I have had the older blankets that were wonderful. The ones you sell now are terrible, I will not purchase another or recommend. Show details

Don’t use your washing machine!

I was so happy to get this blanket as a gift. So Soft and pretty!
However, when I went to take it out of the washing machine ( set on the fragile hand wash cycle) it was a complete mess! Everything was in tatters!
It is now somewhere in recycling, since I had to throw it away!
Anyone who buys this brand, make sure you hand wash. Even though it says it’s ok to use your washing machine, it’ll destroy it! Show details

So far so good

Purchased one a few weeks ago and have found it fantastic. Warm, lightweight and a generous QS. Will be interesting to see how it ifeels when the weather warms up Show details

light and warm

i have never had a blanket like vellux. I washed it year after year in washing machine and it always remained brand new. I am surprised many people complain about the quality because the colour, lightness and warmth it provides are unique. Show details

Disintegrated in the washing machine!

I did own a single vellux blanket and a QS vellux. Washed both today and they turned to mush in the machine. What a mess! So disappointed as they are not cheap to buy.

Big disappointment

I purchased my queen size blanket 7 years ago - did not use it for a few years. When I opened the package I found that neither the width or length of the blanket could be tucked under the mattress. Hardly used but the hems are falling apart. Show details

I ordered the sheet blanket while watching “View your deal” on The View. I received a plain everyday blanket without the sheet material backing or the sateen borders. The packing slip indicates I must pay for shipping to return.  Show details

Turns to mush in your washer

My Vellux blanket DISINTEGRATED in my washer. These blankets are touted to become softer with washing, but just turn to mush for you to scoop out of your washer. Do NOT buy. Show details

My blanket fell apart

Washed king size. As instructions it now a pile of puffy stuff in trash can. It made a mess and we on a septic field. Would not recommend this blanket. Show details

Not a great example

Washed according to directions, cold short wash. Certainly not what I expected when opening the machine. Can not recommend this product, it has had very little use, just thought I would freshen it up! Show details

How can I tell if blanket is rotted before I wash it

I have had my original Vellux blanket for a lot of years and it is finally starting to disintegrate. I have seen a lot of reviews online saying the new Vellux blankets disintegrate in the wash. Has anyone had issues with this?

My blanket was purchased 8 years ago but not really used all that much. It too is disintegrating. Can't say I was ever happy with it. Purchased a king size for a queen size bed but it still did not tuck in at the sides.

I have had my blanket 2 years, wash it mid season and before I put it away in spring. This year I have noticed a small hole in it, like a moth hole. Why is this?
