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.
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.
I love this fur throw. My children and I fight over it. I wash on gentle, and low dry. No problems. It's the perfect size, so soft and comfy, and looks great on the furniture. I gave one to my sister-in-law. They love it too. You can't go wrong with this.
