This is an awesome throw in lots of ways. I'm actually glad I have it but be forewarned...you need to wash this throw 2-3 times before the shedding abates. I had fur from one end of my couch to the other after just one evening of using it right out of the package. It's fine now and truly a nap time pleasure.
It is soft & silky to touch, but It is thin & does not look like any fur I've ever seen. The faux fur is very short, so if you're looking for a luxurious longer faux fur, this is not the one to buy. I do like the fact that this throw is 10" longer than most throws that are sold. I'm going to keep it and hope it's warmer than it looks like it will be & that it washes well. It was shipped very quickly.
I purchased the white one a couple months ago. I read the reviews and washed and dried it according to instructions twice so that there would be no problems with shedding. That worked and I love this throw for those cold nights by the fireplace. I loved that it came in a nice box also. Thanks Overstock.
If you like soft, you'll love this throw !! My niece and I fight over it, when she stays with us ! It is also very heavy, therefore very warm, so it's a winter time throw ... for the most part. Very well made also ... I've washed it 2x and it comes out of the dryer like new. I'm sure this will last for years.
