I'd been looking for a faux fur blanket for a few weeks. I wanted a Leopard or Snow Leopard which in this size were all of of stock. After reading the feedback on this throw, I purchased one in Cheetah and I'm so glad I did. It's far more beautiful than the photo and much softer than anticipated.
After ordering this blanket for my daughter in the Safari my Granddaughter wanted one too. I told her I would buy it for her birthday. By the time I went to order it shorly after they were out of stock. If you find something you want on Overstocked.com don't wait too long. I kept watching and this Cheetah blanket came up. This was the one she wanted. Her birthday is not until September so she has not used it yet. The color is not this yellow-it is darker. Beautiful blanket and looks and feels very expensive. It is heavy for the Colorado winter months. The backing is beige and very soft. The oversized is like a full sized blanket rather then a throw. If you are looking-buy it!
We have a large sectional so we decided to order two of the Cheetah Faux Fur throws. They are exceptionally soft and the colors are very vibrant. My wife just loves cuddling with the throws when she watches TV. I like them when we are enjoying some fine wine and cheese in front of the fireplace on those cool evenings.
I was a little disappointed when I first received this blanket in the mail. With all the reviews saying how incredibly soft it was, I was very surprised to find the fur side feels like a cheap soft toy. I have an old furry blanket that is incredibly soft, but also very small, so I was hoping this new bigger Cheetah one would be a good replacement. The lining is on the softer side, and the fur does *look* really nice, so I am keeping it, but it is certainly not the softest blanket I own.
The throw is goreous- as beautiful as it is pictured to be. I bought mine on impulse when I saw it. I had to return it because the price is too high given the overall market prices for this type of item. Also, I can't really afford to spend that kind of money at this time.
