Not as heavy as expected, but nice blanket
I'm not sure if 8 lbs is ment to be a weight class of blankets, since I have seen several listed as such, but I was expecting a blanket that weighs 8 lbs. I thought it seemed lighter than I expected, so I weighed it by putting it in a bag and using a luggage scale. It only weighed 6.5 lbs.
This is a nice quality heavy blanket, it's just not quite what I was hoping for. The reviews I read ranged from "this blanket isn't anywhere near heavy enough" to "this is the heaviest blanket you'll ever own." I found this blanket to be about even with a lighter denim quilt for weight. If you're looking for a blanket for sensory therapy, I would look elsewhere and for a higher weight, if you looking for a heavy cozy blanket, this may be right for you.

Thick, Heavy, Plush, everything a blanket should be.
This thing is thick, and HEAVY! If you happen to be looking for an anxiety blanket, but don't want to pay for a weighted blanket, this is a little heavier and so plush and soft. I've been sleeping so much better since I got it! I got the teal color and it is a beautiful vibrant color, I have not washed it yet, but the color is even and seems to have high quality stitching on the edging, I'll report back after a few washes as to how the plush holds up, along with the color and edging.
Update, Nov, 8th 2016. This thing washes beautifully! I use an allergy setting on my wash that does steam? I dunno... But I dry out in the dryer on normal settings and have not gotten any lint in the trap. It's been washed at least four times now. I'm about to buy another for snuggling on the couch this winter!
Update 11/25/2017, this thing is still great, so fuzzy and soft, no fading, with washing and drying about every two weeks.

thick and extremely comfortable. would highly recommend this for everyday sleep use
the only reason i am giving this four stars instead of five is because its not as heavy as i anticipated it to be, but is over soft, well made, thick and extremely comfortable. would highly recommend this for everyday sleep use.

I suppose all reviews are subjective, so with that in mind...
IMO, absolutely the worse blanket I've ever purchased. Weighted blanket? Warm blanket? No on both accounts. Horribly disappointed in this product. If you truly are buying for someone possessing a medical need for a weighted blanket... unfortunately, this is not the product for you.

This is NOT a weighted blanket.
This is not a weighted blanket. I was expecting it to be much heavier than it is. Over all the quality of the blanket was excellent, but the reason I spent that much money on it was that I wanted a weighted blanket. Decided to keep it because I did not want to go through the hassle of returning it, and it's a nice blanket.

The color is beautiful. I wish it was a little more weighted
Very soft, and very big. The color is beautiful. I wish it was a little more weighted, but it will get the job done for my RLS.

although it's a nice blanket. A very simple return
I bought this thinking it would be a heavy blanket - it's only 8 pounds. I would have to fold it over and over to make it feel "weighted" so I sent it back. It just wasn't what I was looking for, although it's a nice blanket. A very simple return, thank you!

Makes a bed look like ocean.
I order this one for my mom because she was jealous of the purple that I ordered a few months before for myself. She said that this blanket cut down on her billed. She always using for the weather and the color is true to the picture. Makes a bed look like ocean.

Great heavy fleece blanket
Exactly what I was looking for. Good weight, easy to clean, doesn't shed.
