I don't tend to gush over things when they are "good". I expect good. I pay my money, I want good in return. If you meet my expectations, that's great, now let's move on. This throw blanket is fabulous! I'm 6'5" and tend to curl up on my couch during the winter to watch movies. I had a standard-sized throw blanket before. It would cover some of me, but never all of me, and I never got the cozy feeling, even with the fire roaring in the fireplace. This throw was large, and I decided to give it a try. It is perhaps the single best bedding product I've ever purchased. It is quite large (but not heavy), and can easily cover all of me, with plenty left over to double-up. It has a warm fleece side that is soft to the touch, and an even softer faux wool side, which can get you toasty even faster. I'm built like Santa, and if there were a Mrs Claus in my life right now, this throw is big enough for two to cuddle under, with room to spare. Soft, warm, well made, comfy-cozy, and sized larger than life to suit those of us who are built the same. This is one awesome product. I may just buy a second and keep it on the shelf, so when this one finally falls apart a decade or more from now, I'll still have another. It is that good.
I was looking for a soft, warm blanket and I found this on on O.com. I purchased 2 based on the comments, and description of the blanket. When the blanket arrived, I was surprised that it was as soft as it was and even after several washings it is still soft and fluffy ( I guess is the best way I can describe it). I am ordering another blanket today for my father, who did not want an electric blanket, but a blanket that was warm and soft. Well, this one fits the bill for him...and us! I love it. I have not used my electric blanket yet and we have had some pretty chilly nights. One thing though, if you have a queen bed you might want to order the King size blanket.. I will definately give another review after fall season is over. Then I can give a really good review of how this blanket holds up.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exact color as shown on the site

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate in the description and I read the comments before I purchased and everything was as written.
I bought 3 of these and wish I had gotten one more!! These are SO soft and snuggly!! Exactly what I was looking for!! I only wish they were mafe in the USA. The site should tell you where they are made since we are all trying to buy American made products.

I'd like it better if the face was actually stitched down to the lining. It's merely stitched all the way around and then turned inside out. It doesn't quite lay right. I plan to stitch around the edges myself so that it'll lay better. It's a good blanket for the price. Nothing is perfect these days.
I love the blanket: It is so fuzzy and warm. I originally bought it to cover the sofa, thinking it was going to match the color, but the brown resembles coffee, black - not coffee with cream as the photo shows. That's why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. It is a lot darker than I was hoping for. However, I love the softness. It feels so cozy to wrap around me, and with winter coming, it will definitely come in handy!
The only reason I didn't give this five stars was the fact the two layers tend to separate rather than hang together, making it behave rather like a soft balloon rather than a throw, bulking up instead of lying flat. Still, it's comfy, washes with ease, and a good buy.
Based on the reviews I bought these bed blankets as throws for my couch, my mom's and my friends (with two kids). If you want the color in the picture it is NOT available. Coffee is the only close color, but it will arrive dark brown. So they should absolutely remove the photo as it's deceptive. But if you like/don't mind dark brown (or any other color they offer) it's a good blanket/throw. I think it might be too light for a bed, but as a throw it's perfect. Normal throws aren't big enough for a tall person to cover themselves all over, but this one is in Queen. I bought the King size for my friend with two little kids so they can all cuddle up together. I think they will love it as I do. Very soft, lightweight and comfy. It's a good value!
I bought two of these blankets to help supplement flannel sheets and a quilt on two separate beds in the home. Both bed occupants were very happy with the Borego Sherpa throw blankets and exclaimed how cozy they were on their beds. I feel very satisfied with the Borego Sherpa blankets in every way.
I just love this blanket. It keeps me very warm at night, so I don't have to use a heavy comforter. My cat loves it too. Maybe, even more than I do!

My 90 year old neighbor is hard to get a gift for. She doesn't need clothes or anything practical. She does have a supply of throws. She didn't have one like this. She really loved it and really uses it. She's Hungarian and knows her blankets and thinks this one is the best she's had.
