oversized throw is right! Super soft, warm, vibrant colors, durable, and definitely quality! I was a bit worried about price tag, would it show up and not be worthy of the high price tag? was I wasting my time? but I wasn't having much luck elsewhere with oversized throws priced less, so I decided to give in with Cyber Monday coupon and boy am I glad I did! I immediately went back to purchase another pattern after this one arrived and was disappointed its currently out of stock :( waiting for the notification email so I can grab it asap! we have a 10' x 10' x 48" deep, dark gray chenille sectional and a black 80# pitbull who lays wherever he wants. we prefer multi color throws as they hide little black hairs, which is also why we keep multiple throws on the couch. this messina oversized throw is worth every penny for humans and active dogs jumping up on the couch!!! my mom has even come over a couple times this past week and keeps questioning where I got it and for how much guess I'll be grabbing her one also :)
Colors on the throw are orange, green, grey, blue with red trim around the entire edge. Both sides of this throw are printed. The material is best described as a thick flannel. It provides plenty of warmth for Texas winters and great to use on the couch, chair or even on the bed. The pile on the flannel is short and it does not shed. I have not washed it yet, so I cannot comment on how well it washes and dries. The best part about this throw is that it has no harmful dyes or chemicals. The colors are very vibrant with a sort of Southwest flair. Great gift item!
This throw is fine, but I admit I was disappointed when I received it, as it seemed much more ordinary than the way it looks on line. It has a decent weight, but I was hoping for it to be fluffier and more cuddily than it is. So, I can't show much enthusiasm here and can only say it's okay.
