This blanket is not the best quality I've exerienced in throw blankets but, for the price and basic utility, it is perfect! I ordered the gray and it had a very rustic yet modern feel to it and is a fun accessory that complements my eclectic decor.The size is perfect and the loose weave may is just pefect for naps or snuggling on the couch.
I'm very happy with this throw blanket. I had a difficult time finding a throw in a black color for my guest bedroom. It is being used for decorative purposes only and I am pleased that the color is a true, deep black. It's very soft and looks rich. A very reasonable price and, once again, I am pleased with my Overstock purchase.
If you're looking for a nice, chunky throw over the back of a couch or chair, this is a great option. As someone mentioned previously, it might not be the best option if you're looking for something that will get some serious use. I ordered the dark red one and it's a really nice deep rust color. (Not quite the red wine color you see in the pic, but still very pretty.)
I have this throw in ivory and it's neatly folded over the back of a chair. Because I am using it for decorative purposes, I like it. It isn't very soft and it is so loosely woven that it seems it would stretch and lose the 'look'. It is definitely more decorative--but for that, it's the right price!
I bought this as a decorative throw for my house in FLA as a splash of color in our spare bedroom. The color is very pretty and the feel is very soft. I bought the spa green. However, I would not recommend it for people with pets, not sure if it would hold up. The sticthes are big to give it a chunky feel. I have pets and I know this would not make it in my NY home. I think this throw is perfect for decorative purposes not for use as a blanket.
The first time I washed this (in cold water on a delicate cycle) is started shedding. So I tumbled it in the dryer with no heat to try to get the loose threads off, but that didn't help. It left a trail of fluff from the laundry room all the way upstairs. Really cheap yarn. Save your money.
I like the blanket, it's soft and comfortable but the fabric is very loose knit and snags easily. My cat got his claws stuck in the wool and unfortunately tore a big hole in the blanket - about 1 day after putting it on my bed! Nice for decorative purposes but not very hard wearing.
As pointed out by another reviewer this throw is very sheer when not folded. I got around that by putting another dark blanket underneath it and then that at least is less noticeable. The big problem though is that it sheds so much. I pick bits of fluff from it up all over the house and I've even found bits in the garden. It just sheds on and sticks to anyone or anything that comes in contact with it. It had a lovely vibrant color when I first got it but now it looks more dull and fuzzy and I am already looking to replace it with something of better quality.
I was delighted with the blankets, they look excellent in my conservatory I did not want the suite to fade in the sun and this was just the answer. The promt and efficient service was very good and I was advised on the details of the delivery.
The blanket is pretty soft and if it's folded it looks great. However, when I held it up, I realized that the knitting isn't nearly as "tight" as I thought it would be. There are some places that you see right thru. I think it's warm and soft enought, just not as visually appealing as i thought it would be.
