In Southern California, a light, open weave blanket is appreciated. These throws are pretty and light. They wash very well. My only complaint with the blue/white one is that it sheds a little. I suspect that will stop after a couple of more washings.
Throws were very poor quality. Very loose weave which dispite very gentle handling opened into gaps. Throws deposited vast amounts of fluff. Having said that, I cannot fault the company. They were MOST courteous when I complained, supplied all paperwork for retunr of the throws and refunded the full purchase price within days of their return. Poor quality goods, in this instance, but excellent service from Overstock.
This is very nice. Soft and the color was just right. It was almost too soft for what we were using it for, to keep our cat off our new couch The weave is more open than I thought it would be. The cat, however, loves it. If you want to wrap yourself up in a cozy blanket that's not too warm on a winter or spring day or night, this would be a great choice!
The material of this throw shed over everything. I ordered black. It was a good price. It was delivered quickly, but the quality was horrid. Plus, the throw was packed in a zippered plastic bag. The correspondence said once it was opened, the purchase could not be returned. I had to take it out of the packaging and "throw" it on my sofa. It was then it began to shed all over. I put in in the dryer on cool air fluff to see if loose threads would shake off. They did, but the throw continued to leave more fuzz all over my house. This was a very disappointing purchase. I am appalled at the "cannot return once opened" policy stated on the correspondence. I have thrown this throw in the garbage. I was a valuable lesson, and I will be more careful what I purchase, if anything, on Overstock.
The second this blanket was out of the packaging it was leaving HUGE amounts of fuzz on EVERYTHING! This was a horrible product and I was embarrassed that I gave it as a Christmas present to my mother-in-law. Even after washing her clothes, she still had fuzz stuck to everything! They really shouldn't allow people to pay for a product like this. It truly has affected my desire to ever shop on Overstock again.
This throw is VERY loose knit to the point that my dog can stick her nose through it. It also sheds in both the dryer and on any fabric that is not slick. I have kept it because I wanted it for decoration only so it is working for me, but would not recommend for snuggling up in.
