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 was purchased as a light summer throw. I thought it was 100 percent cotton but it has some synthetic material which makes it warmer as in cold weather use. Item was thicker than anticipated, looks exactly as listed and in a practical size.
I love the large size of this blanket, the colors are cheery, it's soft and fuzzy too. The red edging is kind of cheap and not so soft and the blanket is not as warm as our little, not-as-soft fleece blankets we bought at Ross years ago. It would be better for warmer nights on the couch. We usually double up on blankets if using this one.
