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 took a chance on this - "faux fur" doesn't seem all that promising as something to really keep you warm in on a cold night - but I was pleasantly surprised at what a good job it does. It's very soft and silky (the back is sort of a panne velvet) so it tucks in well to stop drafts around the edges - and it's big enough to both cover my feet/ankles and to cover most of my body (for reference: I'm 5'6" tall)...doesn't really fool you into thinking it's fur, but it has a reasonable amount of pile, and that helps hold body heat. Have no idea why they named these things after birds - they don't look like feathers either. Good service/prompt shipping.
I was so pleased with the softness and quality of this throw that I came back and bought three more! It's lightweight but very warm and comfy. Perfect to cuddle up and watch TV on a cold winters night. I had bought one from ********* for significantly more money and had to return it because it was much smaller and weighed a ton! They colors are also really pretty!
I really like the size of this throw as my feet stay covered even when I am stretched out. The faux fur is very soft and it doesn't shed. Looks lovely on my leather couch and provides a layer of warmth during this frigid winter in WI when I catch a nap. My dogs like it as well when they cuddle with me. I think they somehow think I have become one of them for real.
