I bought the throw for my daughter-in-law for Christmas. She had been wanting a black throw for over a year and we had not been able to find one in the stores! When I located it on Overstock, I was thrilled to be able to surprise her! It is a beautiful throw! The ruffles are nice but not overdone. It's a nice size and has a very nice feel. I think the price is a little high for the current prices throws sell retail, but it was worth it to purchase one of this quality and be able to have such a surprise for a Christmas present.
