I ordered this in Spice and the color was exactly what I wanted. The texture is wonderful. It's soft and cozy. The only negative is those plastic tag hangers (like they use to put a price tag on a garment) were attached in several places on the throw without a tag so were very difficult to locate. I snagged and pulled the yarn in several places before I discovered the reason. So unfold carefully and have a pair of scissors handy. I was able to get the pulled threads back into place by working the area around the pull. Otherwise, lovely.
I ordered the yellow and spice. I was pleased with the fast arrival of my shipment. I was disappointing with the throws. They smelled really bad. It must have been the dye. Also the colors were faded compared to the picture. They were soft and pleasing to look at. When contacting the return department, they were very nice and polite.
Other reviewers mentioned the strong unpleasant chemical smell on this throw and boy, they were not kidding. I hung it up outside for 10 days and it still smelled awful, so I washed it in my washing machine on knit/delicate cycle and cold water. It weathered being washed, even though the label says dry clean only. Even if it shrunk, I had to wash it to get rid of that smell, it was unusable as it arrived. It is a pretty throw but what gives with that awful odor?
This blanket is not functional for me. It's just used to make my room look pretty. And it is pretty. the only thing is, it snags easily but that's only if you're wearing something sharp and it gets caught. It just a the nature of the beast.
The color of the product was perfect and the texture was very nice. However, it had an overwhelming odor to it. Smelled like it had been soaked in dry cleaning fluid. Had it not been exactly what I was looking for, I would have returned it immediately. Several airings outside and a couple of cycles in the dryer removed the smell.
This is just a beautiful throw. I use it at the foot of my bed. It has unique popcorn like stitches throughout, and a beautiful weave behind that. It is lightweight, but looks much heavier and is very warm.. The yellow color I ordered is a very light gold and blends in with the colors of my bedroom. It compliments gold or yellow, greens, blues, beiges, etc. You will love it. Give it a try! You won't be sorry. I would recommend it as a decorator piece rather than a blanket you just throw over you. It is a little too delicate for that.
