If you a looking for a heated throw to keep out the chill of a drafty house, without resorting to turning the heating up all the way, or you are just plain fed-up with the cold and long for a little summer warmth, the Dreamland 16339 Relaxwell Deluxe Faux Fur Heated Throw, Slate Grey will bring you all the warmth and comfort you could wish for while being the ultimate luxury accessory for you home. However, don’t think this throw is more for decoration than it is practical – Dreamland’s Intelliheat Technology makes this throw not only so wonderfully cozy and warm to snuggle under but practical, safe and at as little as 1pence peruse, cheap to run, meaning it could save you money on your heating bill!
There is something very restful about the colours found in nature. We would all love to live in beautiful, calm and peaceful surroundings, and choosing shades that are tranquil, peaceful, and inspired by nature, have a measurable, beneficial effect in calming the mind.
The Dreamland 16339 Relaxwell Deluxe Faux Fur Heated Throw, Slate Grey is made from the softest, dark slate-grey faux fur imaginable. At 160 x 120cm it is a perfect size for snuggling up with on the sofa, without swamping your whole lounge, but it would be just as fabulous to throw over your bed so you won’t be kept awake by frozen toes.
If you have read my previous reviews of the heated throws in Dreamland’s collection, you will know that what makes these throws stand out from all the rest, is their clever and super-efficient control unit.
All the heated throws and blankets in Dreamland’s range use “Intelliheat Technology.” This allows the throw to heat up in just 5 minutes to its warmest setting via a ‘Ready to Relax’ pre-heat button. Once you are snuggled up under the throw, you can choose your desired heat setting from no.1 – no.5. No.1 is mildly warm, while no.5 is more like the temperature of a comfortably hot “hot water bottle”. During each use, the Intelliheat Technology will automatically adjust to external and ambient temperature changes so that your level of comfort will remain constant throughout. The control unit will even remember which setting you previously used!
The Dreamland 16339 Relaxwell Deluxe Faux Fur Heated Throw is very safe, it has a 1 or 9-hour auto shut-off timer and a firm on-off switch at the back, preventing the unit from switching on if the control buttons are accidentally touched. It is also machine washable and tumble dryer safe, and it comes with a 2-year guarantee!
Are there any downsides?
As with all faux fur, a few stray hairs may be shed themselves when the throw is brand new but this is only temporary and shouldn’t be very noticeable. Heated throws, of course, have wires inside so you can feel them with your fingers, but they are flexible, neatly sewed in place throughout and padded by the super-soft velvety, 100% Polyester micro mink underside – so you won’t feel or notice them when you snuggle up under the throw.
So no! As I have said previously in my other reviews of this range, in my opinion, you can’t go wrong with any of the Dreamland heated throw collection. Whichever you go for, the intelligent, high-quality technology behind each model remains the same. You can see the other choices in the Dreamland collection, with full reviews, here.
However, for looks, the Dreamland 16339 Relaxwell Deluxe Faux Fur Heated Throw, Slate Grey is outstanding. It truly is beautiful! I love greys and whites for their tranquility and air of quiet sophistication. Actually, anyone you knows me will tell you that grey is my favourite colour. My whole house is white with accents of grey in varying shades. This throw would look so fabulous over a pale grey or white pure linen duvet and add an air of opulence and warmth to a plain, or cold lounge. You too will look fabulous with it wrapped around you! Most importantly, though, it will help you to relax and feel comfortable and warm no matter how chilly it gets. And if you have one of these, right or one of those, far top right and they go missing around the house don’t panic, you know where they will be…
