In all honesty, I've never been a fan of the heated throw. I've always felt like the insides were crinkly and full of wires and that the fabric was stiff and uncomfy.
My experience with the Sunbeam LoftTec Plush was completely different. There is still a heating element inside, but the fabric was super soft and the inside wasn't bunchy at all. It was completely awesome.
One of my favorite features of the blanket is the three heat control setting. We usually keep it on medium, but I was very excited to be able to turn it up on those 5 degree days. For the last few weeks everyone in my family has sat huddled on the couch in this position.
Since we've loved this blanket so much, I've been looking around at local stores to see if I can find anything that can compare. So far I've only seen fleece heated blankets, which are not anywhere near as soft as this one.
