For the softest blanket experience ever, I recommend Berkshire blankets. Wrapping yourself in one is pure heaven. They are so soft that even when sandwiched between a top sheet and a comforter or duvet, they make sleep more peaceful. That’s right: The softness mysteriously permeates other fabrics making them snugglier. Our cheap sheets feel like Egyptian cotton when they are paired with a Berkshire blanket.
My husband and I have a queen sized bed but we went with the king sized Berkshire because we wanted MORE. We don’t care if it hangs out from beneath the comforter. If they had a cover-your-boat sized one, we would buy it. Just tuck the edges under the mattress if company is coming over.
When you wash a Berkshire blanket, you will not find half of it in the dryer lint trap, like those blankets that start out fluffy and quickly become scrawny and threadbare. It works great as a throw so buy an extra for the living room.
