Review of The Dreamland Relaxwell Faux Fur Heated Throw

It certainly feels like winter all of a sudden doesn't it!


And with the temperature dropping, my heated throw is now on every single night!


But when I put a poll on my Instagram recently, it seems like a lot of you are interested in investing in one but haven't yet taken the plunge.


So, here's a review of mine, the Dreamland Relaxwell Faux Fur Heated Throw. I am also going to share some helpful articles about other heated blankets, so hopefully this will help you decide if you'd like to join the cosy club!



I have had mine since 2019, so we're a good 3 years in now - and although the exact one I have is still being sold, it is currently out of stock at Lakeland, and most other retailers. They do a few colourways/patterns so if you like the faux fur look, you'll definitely find one you love!


LOVE THIS BIT: These throws cost around 3-5p an hour to run, and only takes 5 minutes to heat up too!


It has to be said, I do get very cold in bed. When I first get in, I'm the queen of the 'bed-dance' to try and warm up! And once I'm snuggly, I am a very big fan of staying wrapped up as long as I can. Or usually, just until Oti wakes me up!


So, the amazing thing about this throw is, I can switch it on while I'm getting ready for bed, and by the time I get in it's super cosy!


The 1 hour auto shut off timer is great as well, giving just enough time to warm up but it means I'm not going to bake overnight! You can actually set this anywhere from 1 to 9 hours to switch off, if you'd like it to stay on for longer. But I've found the hour to be just right.



I couldn't review this throw without mentioning how incredibly soft the faux fur is, as well as the underside which is more of a velvet/velour material - or 'Micro Mink' according to the website!


And from an aesthetic point of view, I absolutely love the texture it brings - the only thing I'd perhaps tweak slightly is the width. This would be perfect for a small double or single bed, but for anything larger it does unfortunately just perch on the top, rather than hang nicely off the sides! But that's my one and only criticism!




Oh and of course, it got the Oti seal of approval as well!


I bought mine from Lakeland, but I believe they are also available from Habitat/Argos, Costco, Fenwick & John Lewis (although unfortunately the Husky throw is out of stock with them all!). And the great news is, it is machine washable too - you can even pop it in the tumble dryer on a low heat!


So what if you're not keen on this particular heated throw?


Take a look at the 9 Best Electric Blankets, which covers underblankets, dual control blankets and affordable options. And if you have a Which account, I highly recommend checking out their thorough review here which was updated just 3 days ago as I'm posting this!


If you end up treating yourself, I'd love to see which you go for - you can always tag me on Instagram @happybeams!


As always, thanks so much for reading,
