I needed a pop of a color in the living room to match an accent wall painted in plum harvest. After searching and searching, I found this throw that looked like the color would match -- it did and did not cost an arm and a leg! The texture was an added plus. I don't plan on using them for warmth but I think they would do the job in providing light comfort while reading or watching tv. They are very soft as well. I am glad I ordered two.
