They actually delayed shipping my order a couple of days because it was over 15 pounds (fine print on the webpage) and they had to get my approval on the shipping charges... and I can be very hard to get in touch with sometimes.
If you order 2 or less then the automatic shipping charges are good as you stay under the magic 15 lbs.
These are very nice new blankets, they are soft and have a good weight to them. Much softer than a US GI wool blanket. They have the slightest of mothproofing odors - otherwise they are brand new with the original Swedish paper tags on them. My cat and the ferrets love the wool.
These are not what I would consider big enough for 2 people in a queen sized bed. More full or twin sized in my opinion.
Shipping turned out to be $28.49. That, plus the $179.96 for 4 blankets came out to a grand total of $208.45. That's over $52 each for blankets...
They also have Italian and other blankets.
I think they sold out of the Swiss officer ones as there not on there site anymore.
Yeah I think so too. I got mine from there as well and was thinking about grabbing a couple more and posting the link. Sadly no more listing of them anywhere :(. I was pleased with the service and the blankets so I think I'll keep them on my radar.
well, I ordered some blankets from the barre army navy store.
will report what I got.
