I bought this bamboo throw for the orange color and to get the soft feel of cashmere without the price. At first, I was a little disappointed with the material since it came very wrinkled and the bamboo threads were not lying flat and looked wavey - it was also thinner then I expected. After a light iron and some normal use the blanket smoothed out and has been very soft and comfortable! You definitely get the luxury look and feel of cashmere at a fraction of the price! Being able to machine wash it is also a plus.

this throw is so not worth the price. it should be listed at $19.99 or less. i purchased it primarily for the color and secondly, for the fact that it is machine washable. here were my issues with the purchase overall: 1 - arrived via ups and was taped with an excess of packing tape; 2 - opened it and it appeared to be used/repackaged and wet (yes, i said wet). i live in south florida and it was raining but there was no reason it should have been wet because it was a package INSIDE a package; 3 - fabric quality was poor. it looks and feels more like a cheap felt throw than the soft bamboo i anticipated; 4 - customer service interaction (once i reported the item arrived wet) - stated they would have someone come to my house and inspect the item (which clearly would have been dry by the time the inspector arrived). overall, i would say don't waste your time or money (unless you really need an orange throw & can't find one locally)
