I have a puppy who loves to dig, but not in the dirt or snow. No, he love to dig the couch and my leg. I had a towel; his claws shredded it. I tried a quilt; he tried to eat it. I decided to try fleece, and this had a great price and selection (I chose navy). It is soft, and large enough to cover almost all of the couch, including the back pillows (another favorite digging spot). He digs, and nothing happens. I would have rated it excellent but it was a lighter weight than I'd expected. Maybe that was my expectations, not the description. It is soft, durable, and machine washable. Can't ask for more than that, and I'm enjoying protecting my couch with something so soft, comfortable, and nice looking.
Item ordered & what I expected was what was pictured: a chocolate throw with blue, beige & white pattern. What I received was a solid navy velour throw with folded over hemmed edges. Poor construction, cheap fabric. I didn't return it, though, because in general returns are a hassle and in all the years I & my family have purchased everything from jewelry to furniture from Overstock.com, this had never happened. The quality of this throw is such that it's only good for keeping in the trunk to help get a car out of snow, mud, or ice...quite disappointed...can't recommend
