I love cashmere, to the point that I wear cashmere socks and cashmere hoodies. So, when i decided to buy my first throw, Overstock was my place of choice. Overstock came through with great, reliable service. However, the throw is a bit scratchy, more of a wool feel than soft and supple. There is pilling already but a good lint brush fixes that. I told my friend that with proper laundering, his throw should get softer. I have learned to stick to Mongolian cashmere when it comes to blankets.
I kept this throw because it's just the right color and size, the weave is attractive and it's warm enough. But I wouldn't delude myself that it's cashmere! It's far too rough and too heavy in weight. If you inspect one, I'm sure you'll agree.
I ordered this throw forewarned by previous reviews that the color was not exactly as portrayed. However, I was not expecting such a total difference. There is no semblance to any hue commonly called red, rust, or even orange-ish red. This throw is more burnt orange. If that's not the color you're expecting, you may be happier with something else. Other than the color, the quality is ok, though rather thin for a throw in this price range. I am returning it.
The thai red is definitely more of a papaya-ish orange-red than a true rust red. However, I was expecting that based on other reviews and was, in fact, hoping for it. Color is perfect for my decor. It is very nice and thick and I love the subtle texture. It was a bit nappy at first, but a few minutes in the dryer on delicate heat caught most of that in the lint trap.
The generous size is a great attraction. The throw is soft and warm, and the price is right. The "Thai Red" that I received is much more in the orange family than the burnt red that I expected. However, it goes just fine in my room, so I have kept it.l However, if you're expecting "red," this is not the color for you. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.
I guess I am the only one who was NOT impressed with this blanket. The blue color was as pictured, but that’s the only thing I liked. It was 6 inches NARROWER than described (a deal breaker). It was VERY “pilly”, to the point I kept thinking there were flaws or thin spots. I would not give this as a gift. It looked OLD right out of the box. I returned it. I gave it 2 stars for color correctness and general workmanship.
I purchased this oversized cashmere throw for my daughter and son-in-law on their second wedding anniversary so they could cuddle on their orange leather sofa and watch late-night TV in their seaside home year round. They not only loved the color (Bisque - cream-colored), but also commented on the softness, thickness, fancy fringe, and warmth. I couldn't have found a better gift... and of course, they wanted to know where I purchased the item, so that is the best reference of all. It looks lovely residing on their sofa, and I thank you for a perfect gift.
The ideal gift to keep that someone special warm on the couch while inviting yourself to cuddle alongside. A good size for two, luxurious / supple feel, very soft. Color felt rich. Basically, my two worries for going less expensive were "roughness" (no worries - very soft) or the color being too yellow or otherwise feeling less fine (again - nice color). Highly recommend the product.
Excellent quality. The blanket is very warm and is a good size. I am over 6 feet tall and the blanket is perfect for watching tv on the couch or on the recliner. The price is good for the size and quality of the blanket. The thai red is actually more of a burnt orange, not a big deal but I throw that out there for someone who is concerned about the color. Delivery was timely and no issues. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase.
Color was exactly as expected as well as size, fabric design and softness.Very, very happy with the 2 holiday items purchased this CHRISTmas from O!!! as a first time 'O' shopper with such a great experience, I will definetely be back!!
I ordered this as a wedding gift for a friend who has exquisite taste in quality of merchandise. She raved about the cashmere throw to her friends who phoned me to learn where it was purchased. Can't go wrong here. I've purchased cashmere from O many times and look to O first when I shop.
I received the blue throw as a Christmas present and it has become an essential and decorative part of my living roon. The throw is warm without being heavy, and the diagonal weave is attractive. I gave the throw 4 starts instead of 5 because I thought the price was a little high.
I ordered this cashmere throw and the 8-ply cashmere throws together. They arrived today in nice white boxes. I like this one better than the 8-ply cashmere one because it feels thicker and softer. I bought them for my boyfriend to use on his leather sofa. I would recommend these cashmere throws for daily use and the price is the lowest I found for this brand.
