This is my second throw in chocolate mink from Overstock. It looks great on the leather couch and I love curling up under it to watch movies during cold Chicago winters. This second throw had a tear on the side seam between the lining and the fur part but Overstock was quick to refund a portion of the purchase price so I could have it fixed (they were all sold out so no replacements were available and I wanted it). I wash them on gentle and dry on low, even though the label says dry clean only, and it turns out fine. I find that these throws are a little flat when the come out of the package but they fluff up after use. aIso, I've never noticed significant shedding. I would love to purchase a real fur blanket, but until I can afford to spend 4 – 5 grand on a real mink blanket, it will be Overstock faux fur all the way baby.
I got the ivory and it was absolutely lovely! Went perfect with my decor. Almost a year old and I have washed it several times and it holds up and looks just as new as the day i first got it. Use Tide detergent, the good kind!
This sucker is warm as hell, smooth on the inside and looks great folded on the foot of a bed with the mink side out. That said, the mink side sheds mini hairs that resemble...well, you know. It's not a deal breaker, and I would still buy it, but good to know.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. sheds weird "hairs"
How accurate was the on site description of the product? again, inflated
LIke the title of this review says, I feel like a princess with this blanket. It doesn't look exactly like mink, but it's darned close. I have another faux fur throw and the lining on that blanket is a satiny fabric, which makes the blanket slide around. Well, - not this blanket! The lining is the same color as the mink (I got the white) and to describe the lining fabric, I would say that it's somewhere between a velvet and a very short fur. Very, very nice!
I would highly reccommend this blanket - - especially if you want to feel like a princess, too.
I bought the smaller throw first and liked it a lot. So I bought the larger one. It looks just like on the website.The only problem is that it sheds a bit. My white sheets show all the small dark 'furs'. Dont know if this is normal. But i guess it will stop after a while.The lining is really nice and comfortable. Warm.
This throw is more than a throw. It's soooooo heavy it should be put on a bed and left there for the winter. I could barely lift it to fold or to cover myself. It was way too warm. This would be excellent in Alaska or maybe even in the Arctic or Antarctic as a bed cover, not your average throw.
We ordered both a black and white throw for our sofa. These are heavy weight and beautiful. Only complaint is that the white throw is more of a cream color, not pure white. If you are looking for pure white, then skip this item in white.
I would not suggest this if you are looking for something white- ivory as it really has a yellowish tone.
Besides the color we did not like the "feel". Yes it is "mink-like" on one side and when you pet the fur in one direction, but it is not very soft overall. If you are wanting the look of mink this might be just right.
A friend had given me one of the smaller blankets a few years ago and I had wanted to get another, larger. The order shipped almost on time, and when I recieved it I was very excited. I opened the box and bag and the blanket inside was not what I expected. It had a very strong odor (musty/smokey/stale) which I figured could be aired out. When I took it out of the bag, I noticed some areas were very tightly woven and harsh, whereas other areas of the blanket were smooth and soft. Maybe this was a fluke and I got a shabby part of the fabric, but for $100, I would expect better quality. I will be returning this and probably not getting another.
