There is a definite problem with the depiction of the colors offered for this blanket. I ordered "blue" and when it arrived, the package said "blue/yellow" and the majority of the blanket was yellow...and sort of teal. Not what I wanted at all. I'm not even sure what I *should* have ordered to receive the color that I wanted, because the picture does not give any indication whatsoever. If this blanket is supposed to match something in your house, lots of luck picking the right one. The blanket is thin. That would have been fine with me because I wanted to use it on my bed ontop of my other linens to keep cat hair off of my comforter. This is not a blanket I would buy if I was looking for something warm. 2 stars for the size of the blanket, it was nice and generous. If anyone is interested, it's made in China. I returned this and took a hit from Overstock on it. Lesson learned...
I ordered this in blue (in the stack of throws on the right side of photo, it's the second from the top). The tag attached to the throw stated Blue/Yellow. The main color is more of a green-blue, with a lot of dark brown and a very pale, almost beige, yellow. Colors are much more muted than in the photo. Disappointed that the colors won't work in the room I had planned. However, the throw is very soft right out of the package, is a good size and appears well made, so I'll be keeping it.
Soft big blanket but when washed it does get fuzzy and pill. We wanted something that would cover our sofa and be washed often (toddler). But I don't think it will wear very well with a weekly washing. It is also very easy to pull at the threads. It's delicate and my household is not quite compatible.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not great. Pills very easily and it doesn't help my toddler loves to pick at it.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
Label says it can be washes but after two washes it really becomes a ball of fuzz which is too bad because I like the woven look of the throw. I suppose you could dry clean it but who wants to do that.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? Good
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
I love, love, LOVE this blanket. I bought it in two different colors so I could have something light and warm and comfy in my living room (that matched the painting above my couch as an added bonus!). These blankets are absolutely gorgeous and soft, and they are easy to store in the ottoman storage cubes that fit under my coffee table (another great Overstock buy!).
I gave it a 4 due to the color description. Other than that it is lightweight, soft, and warm.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was totally different than what I was expecting and I even called and spoke with 2 representatives. That being said, it was so soft, I could not return it. I placed it in another room.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, except for the color
This is the worst purchase I've made in a long time. I ordered 2 blankets and have to throw them out. The yarn was easily pulled out of place, misshaping the blanket. No amount of tugging returned it to it's original form. Poorly made and not worth your money. I wish I would have taken the other reviewers opinions to heart.
