I have had this throw for several months now and I have to say it holds up well , looks and feels great. Mine has not shed at all like some other reviewers stated. My children liked it so much I bought a second one as well as the matching pillows. The back side is a really soft black velvet type material and is very comfortable. The set looks lovely on my white leather sectional. I don't however, think you will fool people into thinking it is real fur as some reviewers stated. I enjoy it for the faux fur look.
I purchased this throw for myself to use in the living room. Since it very furry, I was hoping that my husband and teenaged son would not have interest in using it. I was wrong. We all love it and find ourselves fighting over it. My niece showed up one day and fell in love with it as well. I sent her one for her birthday and she was thrilled. We have the all white one. Makes a nice accent when its folded and sitting on our brown leather sofa or love seat.
