I ordered the mink faux fur throw in brown. II arrived on time. The real excitement was the surprisingly luxurious fur throw that exceeded all expectations. I have been shopping every online store and upscale catalogues for more than 3 months, and here it was, on sale at O.com for a $100 less than anyone had advertised else where. Color was great match to the real thing, the texture was plush and the fur felt real. This is not a light weight throw, but it is comfortable, usable, and also displays beautifully. I immediately ordered another one for a friend, who was delighted with the throw. This was a great buy!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was spot on correct.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fur was so beautiful and luxurious, I immediately sent on as a gift. She loved it
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was exactly correct, and matched the photo.
This fabulous throw was the first thing that I have ordered from Overstock.com. Everything went smoothly and I couldn't be happier. I was hesitant to order something without actually seeing it's quality. I read many of the reviews and felt somewhat sure I would be pleased. (Very few neagative remarks). The feel and look is luxurious and I was pleasantly surprised that the lining was also very soft but "heavy"....nothing flimsy. None of the reviews had mentioned the lining. It's spring here in OK now but I can't wait to use the throw this winter!
the throw is beautiful and nice quality; however, the white color is a little one dimensional. i sent it back and ordered the brown which seems to have a nice play of light and dark for a more realistic look. the "fur" though faux looks and even kinda of feels like mink. as as aside, i had never had to return/exchange anything at o.co before. it couldn't have been easier and peggy s in customer service couldn't have been more helpful. this company rates #1 in customer service as far as i'm concerned.
I just received this item today - two of them in the brown mink - large size. I wanted to give my Mother something luxurious this Christmas just because I love her. I'm a single man and I spent about an hour reading through all the great reviews about this faux fur throw. Then, I thought to myself "D*** if it's really as great as all these reviews say it is, then I better get one for myself." Don't heed any negative reviews about this item. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! Im really not into the whole decor thing, but having just moved into a new apartment with new dark brown leather furniture, I thought this throw would add a touch of sophistication to the chaise lounge - IT LOOKS GREAT! This item is all the other reviewers say it is, and I know that my Mother is going to go gaga on Christmas over this. IT LOOKS AND FEELS BETTER THAN THE REAL THING! Don't even hesitate - don't even worry about whether or not it will have that authentic look - IT MOST CERTAINLY DOES! Great, great find - very, very pleased. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
I bought the white and brown throws. Loved them - they are warm and soft. A couple things though. First, they do shed a bit, but so do my cats so i just take it in stride. Second, BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU DECIDE TO WASH THEM INSTEAD OF DRY CLEANING. Based on a review i read here, i put them thru a front loading delicate wash - all was good. Then the reviewer said to put it in the dryer at low or air dry. Since the dryer at the laundromat (where i had gone in search of a front loading washer) did not have an air only setting i popped it in the dryer on low. It completely fried (melted/ruined) the throw in just a few minutes. I think the air dry would have been fine but DO NOT USE LOW HEAT SETTING! I was so bummed, and had to order a new one on my phone at the laundromat. Expensive mistake. Got the black. It's more like espresso color and i want to say it is not as soft or long haired as brown?) but is still cozy and soft on the underside. Brown was the best (softest
I am a faux fur blanket connoisseur and I took a chance and bought one of each of the patterns...WOW, am i pleased! They're elegant and luxurious. i have an outdoor bedroom and they are the perfect blankets for everyone to wrap up in around the fireplace. I'll be buying more of these for sure.
I love this throw. I was skeptical that the backside might not be that nice but it's as soft as the fur side and feels just as good. It looks so classy and elegant I ordered another one. Great product and a fantastic price. What's not to love?
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? very very good
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
the throw is well made and looks very nice. it is also made of high quality materials and has a very substantial weight to it making it very cozy... however, it is a bit high maintenance for a household with kids and pets. it is dry clean only- which the listing states- but i neglected to notice at he time of purchase. also, it sheds a fair amount. when my daughter plays with it, she gets fibers stuck in her eyes . i have another faux fur blanket that is machine washable that is a lot more functional/ user friendly for my type of household. this throw is really for people without children and pets. it would be great for a ski cabin!
I bought this as a Christmas present for my daughter. It looks great and feels wonderful. However, the label says "Dry Clean Only" which might make it impractical because her pug will snuggle up on it. I'll encourage her to wash it anyways. If we are lucky, it will wash well; if not, I will have wasted my money. The product details did not mention the "Dry Clean Only" requirement, which is disappointing.
While the service and speed of delivery was great..the product itself was not quite what I had expected. I had received one of these faux fur throws at Christmas from a friend and thought it would be a great gift for a friend I would be visiting after the holidays. I had it shipped directly to the hostesses home and was slightly concerned that it was not what I thought was the same quality as the throw I had received. I had received the brown/black throw which was very soft and draped easily over the arm of my sofa...the white one I ordered for my friend was not as soft and a little stiff feeling. She likes it anyway..and loved as a gift. I think if I hadn't already had one that was so soft, I wouldn't have known.
I had purchased a few throws this yr to help cut down on utility bills. When I opened the box this came in my mum was over for a visit. She gasped when I told her I'd bought it for her. She said, 'NO." Like everyone else she is anti-fur. I had to show her the label before she believed me. She has seen real mink before. I have not. Given her reaction and my naivete' I have to say it looks REAL. But guilt free as it is not real. I wound up keeping it because she preferred the other faux fur by another designer on your site. SO while it is a bit small it is nice for those real chilly days and nights. Great reproduction. May buy the larger one at another time.
This is a quality blanket and looks snuggly, but the white one isn't a true white. It is definitely more of an ivory color. This isn't a big deal, unless you're specifically trying to match the blanket to other true white furnishings and elements in the room.
I was disappointed because you do have to dry clean this mink faux throw. And as soon as I removed it from it zipper plastic case it began shedding. It was not as soft and I had hoped. So I returned it! It was just not what I expected.
