One of the things I can always use for my home is blankets. I am very picky when it comes to blankets. I like cotton or woven cotton blankets. They are toasty and I do have to worry about the popping of static electricity as with fleece blankets.
As Christmas approached, my sister asked what I wanted as a gift and I said a blanket. On Christmas Eve, I opened a present to find a pretty white Mainstays Cotton Blanket.
This blanket is produced by Mainstays, which is a less expensive line of products that is carried by Wal-Mart. I have always found Mainstays products to be as good as name brand products so I knew this blanket would be a nice one.
Mainstays Cotton Blanket is made out of 100% cotton in Brazil. This blanket is similar to what some stores call a waffle cut blanket. It does not have satin binding around the edges as some blankets do. The edges are folded over and hemmed.
My new blanket is machine washable, on a gentle cycle, in cold water. It can be dried on a low cycle in the dryer. The tag says fabric softener recommended but I have not used softener on it. I have washed this blanket once, and it still looks new.
The Mainstays Cotton Blanket can be purchased in the following colors: Arctic White, Blue Frost, Fresh Ivory and Sage Legume.
Like most blankets, this one can be bought in full, queen or king size. The blanket is a queen size blanket that measures 90 inches x 90 inches (229 cm x 229 cm).
I really like this blanket. I used it before I washed it, and even so, the blanket was soft enough to not irritate my skin. It is not a heavy blanket but it keeps me very warm. I will be buying a couple of these blankets in other colors.
The Mainstays Cotton Blanket (Model# MS10-094-003-16) can be bought online or in stores. Wal-Mart will ship it free, to a store near you, or for an additional cost they will ship it to your home. Wal-Mart ships in standard shipping time or they can express ship it to you in 1 day, or 2 to 3 days. Of course, the faster you want it the more it will cost you in shipping costs.
This blanket cost a very reasonable $13.00.
On the Wal-mart site, this blanket, ranks almost 4 ¾ stars out of 5 stars.
