I ordered two of these blankets. The color is significantly lighter than depicted, but I love the way they look in my family room! My only complaint is that they aren't at all soft. I haven't washed them yet and plan on using fabric softener when I do.
Like other reviewers have mentioned, it does appear slightly lighter in color in person than the online photo, but it's the same color, just a lighter version of it. Even though it says to dryclean only, I have washed it on the gentle cycle in cold water and dryed it on low. I felt comfortable doing this because I have 3 other cotton throws from Overstock of the same brand and same basic description that have been washed and dryed many, many times, because my pets are the primary users of them. (Disclaimer: I am not recommending you do that, just reporting my experience.) I am going to order another one of these.
Throws are expensive and I found this one to be a real deal. Wife wanted a throw for our sectional and it was for her birthday. Excellent quality. Looks great like the picture. I would say it is sliightly lighter in color than the picture. Overa;; I give it 5 stars and my wife loves it. Great throw for the price. Looks expensive.
I love the fact that this throw is woven cotton-from India. It is pretty, soft and a good weight for wamer weather. I had planned to use it over the back of my sofa, but the color is not right. I thought It would be a sage green, but it is an avacado green. Too much yellow in the green to use in my sage painted living room. I would recommend it if you can use the avacado color.
This throw has the right texture to keep anyone warm on those cold winter day & nights. I know I will enjoy it this winter!
