The Vera Cruz Solid Blanket is our go-to blanket for picnics, trips to the beach, concerts, or as a great accent throw. These blankets have a higher cotton content and a tighter weave than our other classic blankets, resulting in a heavier blanket with a more finished look. The Vera Cruz Solid Blankets are firmer, and initially may not be as soft as our other classic falsa blankets, however, much like your favorite pair of jeans, they become softer and you'll love them more and more after each wash.
Hand or machine wash in warm or cold water. Tumble dry with low heat. Adding softener when washing or a softener sheet in the dryer makes them feel great. Lint will go away after 1 or 2 washing. Be sure to empty your lint trap. Due to the authentic nature of the manufacturing process there may be loose strings. Simply remove these with a scissors or keep the rustic look.
DISCLAIMER: Although we try to represent all of our products as accurately as possible, due to the nature of Mexican blankets, the tone of the colors can vary and may not match the photo exactly.

I didn't own my own yoga blankets, but needed to have them for a workshop. When the Vera Cruz blankets arrived I was a bit skeptical. The is no hem on the long side, they are bound only by white serge stitching in regular white thread, and the blankets seemed scratchy and were shedding a lot of threads and lint, a quality I am not fond of. However, after a machine wash and dry, the blankets smoothed out and stopped shedding. The poly cotton mix makes them less scratchy and sticky than the typical yoga blankets. The Vera Cruz blankets fold very easily without bumps, which is ideal for Iyengar yoga.
I ordered three solid blankets for my outdoor porch swing to protect the cushions and to coordinate with some outdoor throw pillows. These blankets could not be more perfect! Also, washed two and shrinkage was minimal.
I ordered 100 blankets of various colors. The customer service provided was excellent and the blankets were bigger than I would have expected and very sturdy and warm.
Excellent value and quality
I like this blanket. I bought it, washed it in warm water and dried it on high...even though it said to line dry it. The final size after washing is 70" X 42".
I bought 2 of these to use as a yoga mat and I'm happy with the purchase. Doubled the 2 blankets and stacked them together to make a comfortable mat that has no chemical odor. Shipping was prompt -- I got them sooner than I expected. Am considering buying a couple more for use around the house.
I ordered these blankets to make into ponchos for nephew's couples wedding shower. They worked just fine.
Blankets were neatly constructed, great value for price, and shipped in a timely manner! :-) I bought several to use as pet-proof covers for my sofa. Washable and durable.
These solid color blankets were purchased to use as table covers for trade shows I attend. They are simple and exactly what I need. The quality is better than expected and I will no doubt, be buying more from this outstanding merchant.
Thanks Russ, Dennis
This is my second round of these blankets. The first batch were colorful stripes that brightened up my deck furniture, gave us a place to sit on the ground or a lap cover when needed. This time I wanted to cover my couches to protect them from the dog so I ordered solid colors. They are perfect - easier to manage than the big (expensive) quilted covers i have and they wash and dry in a flash!! And you can't beat the price :)
