I just received my second Brahms Mount Calendar Island linen blanket. I've had my first one for over 15 years and have used it almost every night. Its still in great shape. The drape of this blanket is amazing, sleeping under it is like getting a nice big hug. Cool in summer, warm in winter. An investment but worth every penny!
I absolutely LOVE all my Brahms Mount blankets and throws. I so wanted to get the Valendar Island blanket in the grey shade, but I was too late, however, I think the “Natural” is very, very nice. These blankets and throws are so well made and the fabrics are outstanding. Brahms Mount is my favorite brand! ??????
I bought the white linen blanket for my old green iron bed in our ancient farmhouse. I wanted something warm before the season for heavier comforters. This blanket is so pleasing to sleep under, with windows cracked in this damp, chill autumn. Generous size. Lovely drape. Perfect shade of white!
I ABSOLUTELY HAVE FALLEN IN LOVE WITH THIS BLANKET. THE DRAPE IS AMAZING. I HAPPEN TO BE A RESTLESS SLEEPER WHO USUALY GETS ALL TWISTED UP IN MY BLANTET AND FIGHT WITH MY SHEET. SINCE OWNING THIS BLANTET MY HUSBAND AND I SLEEP SOUNDLY AND WAKE UP TO A BED THAT LOOKS HARDLY SLEPT IN. I HAPPEN TO LOVE A BIT OF WEIGHT WHEN I SLEEP AND THIS BLANKET FILLS THE BILL. I AM THRILLED TO HAVE DISCOVERED THIS BEAUTY.
Purchased one of these on sale a few years ago and absolutely love it! It is a fantastic weight on its own for warm summer nights and layers well in winter. It is also amazingly stain resistant- I have kids and pets and it always comes out of the wash looking fantastic. Two minor issues (not enough to remove any stars from the review)- it sheds quite a bit in the wash, even after all this time. Also, the weave is loose enough that it snags fairly easily. This would not be a problem if I didn't have a cat that likes to sleep on me :) Thankfully, the pulls can be worked back in without damaging the fabric, it just takes a little time and patience. All in all super pleased with the blanket and plan to use it until it completely falls apart (if that ever happens!)
Love the weight and airiness of this product. I have linen sheets as well and love the weight of them together too. No need to fight the covers from moving around so much. Very happy with this product.
The rich blue color is lovely.
This blanket is fabulous in feel and comfort.
I've wanted a Brahm's Mount 100% linen Queen blanket for my full-sized bed forever but just couldn't manage the price of my obsession. I nabbed an irregular in the indigo color I wanted, and the size I wanted. The indigo is GLORIOUS. The irregularity is visible--a 4" wide band in the weaving about midway that involves marled not fully dyed yarn--but it's subtle; and frankly, if they'd offered this shadow stripe across an entire blanket, I'd have wanted that. I'll lay it stripe going across the bed and it'll be terrific. The weave is much more open than I imagined but that is the nature of the blanket, not an irregularity. I anticipate the linen softening with use and washing. The weave is beautiful, btw.
I recently purchased this linen blanket, in indigo (a rich shade of blue). I've found it to be incredibly warm. Cotton sheets tend to absorb the winter cold and stay cool, but this blanket never does, so it's doubly warm. And because of this, I use it as the first bedding layerâ€”no sheet needed. It has a nice medium weight, and is simply lovely.
I've always loved linen and knit with it frequently. While working on a small project of my own, I wanted to see how a large scale piece would translate. The product here demonstrates fine craftsmanship and respect for simple, elegant taste. I want to care for this blanket in such a way that it lasts well past my lifetime and is passed down to my daughters for their enjoyment.
Beautiful natural fibres and colours...the height of simple and luxurious in one!
I finally purchased this blanket in king, when it went on sale, after having coveted one for a long time. Had I known how happy it would make me I would not have waited for the sale. I love it. The natural color is beautiful with white linen sheets.

My daughter will have a treasure even after this blanket has given pleasure to my life.
The Brahms Mount Linen blanket really is a joy to use every day. The Indigo color is the most vibrant, deep blue.
Although I've only used the blanket for a month, I look forward to living with it for the next 10 years. It's a little luxury that's practical and beautiful. I love it!
Five stars aren't enough! I've had two of these queen size blankets for over five years and they are still as wonderful as they were when they were new! Thank you for the great quality!
To be wrapped in this blanket is heaven. The linen is the most supurb quality. The weave is gorgeous. Truly a work of art.

The high rating is mostly because of the intrinsic qualities in linen itself. Nature provides the raw materials for life. What the best manufacturers do like Brahms Mount is use the raw material without destroying the intrinsic qualities by bowing to fashion and trend. You can't improve on what nature provides. But you can cooperate with it as Brahms Mount does to create a natural product showing character and uniqueness that outshines everything else today and long into the future.
What I would really like is a quilt or comforter made with linen fabric, batting and thread! Any suggestions?
As always, we are NEVER disappointed by our Brahm's Mount products. T
It is absolutely my favorite blanket! Stylish,chic and comfortable.
indulgent and absolutely worth it.
both comfortable and beautiful.
