How sumptuous does this throw look? I mean you could snuggle up and lose yourself for days in it. You just don’t get more luxurious and opulent looking – particularly because no actual sacrificial Alaskan Huskies were used to make it! The Dreamland 16340 Faux Fur Throw Heated Electric Blanket not only looks gorgeous but is super soft to the touch. The underside is a super-fine, velvety, soft 100% Polyester micro mink, and the outer side is the softest, most strokable high-quality faux fur.
Faux Fur originally made its debut in 1929 and has been available commercially since the 1950’s, yet never has it been so popular in the world of interior design. It’s capable of adding luxury and texture to a simple room and can transform a cold room into a warm, inviting and natural looking space.
So yes, this throw will look fabulous in your home, but what make it so special is not just the warmth and texture it adds to your decor but the actual warmth it will give you.
If like me, you soon feel the cold if you don’t constantly keep on the move, or if your house is a little drafty in places, the Relaxwell by Dreamland New Deluxe Alaskan Husky Faux Fur Heated Throw will be your perfect snuggle blanket to keep the winter chill away.
What makes this heated throw so fabulous is that it uses “Intelliheat Technology.” This allows the throw to heat up very quickly (in just 5 minutes) to its warmest setting via a ‘Ready to Relax’ pre-heat button, so you will soon feel cozy and warm. You can then choose your preferred heat setting from no.1 – no.5. No.1 is lukewarm while no.5 is a comfortable “hot water bottle” temperature. The technology will swiftly switch to your chosen setting and during use, it will automatically adjust to external and ambient temperature changes so that you will get the same level of comfort throughout each use. The control unit even remembers which setting you used the last time.
The throw is very safe to use, featuring 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 pressed. It also only costs from around 1pence per use. You may feel a little decadent having a heated throw, but you are potentially saving yourself a lot of money on your heating bill!
What I love about the throw is its versatility. At 160 x 120cm it is a perfect size for either snuggling up on the sofa while you relax or you can use it as a bed throw – it will look fabulous and prevent your icicle toes from keeping you awake.
Are there any downsides?
As with all faux fur, you may get some initial shedding of a few hairs, but this should be minimal and for a short period only. If you wish, you could give the throw a light vacuum with the upholstery attachment – but I highly doubt this would be necessary. The other thing to remember is that being a heated throw it has wires inside, so of course, you can feel them with your fingers, but they are flexible, neatly sewed in place throughout and padded by the material – so you certainly won’t feel or notice them when you snuggle up under the throw.
So no! In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with Alaskan Grey, Faux Fur Throw Heated Electric Blanket or indeed 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, with its soft natural look, and light shade, The Alaskan Grey, Faux Fur Throw Heated Electric Blanket, is likely to fit in with almost any decor and will add light and warmth to even the coldest and dimmest room. It will also feel wonderfully soft and warm wrapped up around you. In fact short of snuggling up with an actual Alaskan Husky – I mean, those blue eyes alone, could melt any heart and make you feel warm inside – the Relaxwell Deluxe Alaskan Husky Faux Fur Heated Throw is most definitely the next best thing!
