Ok putting a label on something saying it's 100% cashmere does not make it so! This throw is most definitely not 100% cashmere. It feels like a cotton cashmere mix with a bit of rayon for silkiness. My personal guess is 70% cotton, 20% cashmere, 10% rayon. But no way 100% cashmere - it's not soft like cashmere and doesn't even feel warm like wool. I know Overstock is just going by what the manufacturer is saying but the manufacturer is misrepresenting this product. Going right back but total waste of time!!!
This blanket is warm and very comfortable. The color was the exact shade of deep red/crimson that I was looking for. The only issue I have with the blanket is that (like most Cashmere) it sheds quite a bit. This remains the case even after a few cleanings.
I've spent hundreds of dollars on cashmere throws, so didn't expect much when I ordered this. Was I pleasantly surprised!!! This is a thick throw, perfect for snuggling on the sofa or a quick nap. It was slightly scratchy at first but softens with use into a lovely garment. I will buy more in several colors. Mine is the red and it is a glorious jewel color. I never rave about products, but this is a first.
This is not the most lux looking throw, but it is durable, warm and soft. I prefer not having fringe - it gets tangled and such - so this was a perfect fit. I got one as a Christmas gift for my very discerning sister-in-law. She thought it must have cost a fortune...I didn't let her know what I actually paid :)
this was as soft and beautiful as pictured. We gave this as a gift to my mother and mother-in-law for Christmas and they were both so pleased. Very warm and great to nap with, which was the intended purpose. I ordered a crimson red and an ivory and both colors looked exactly as pictured.
