This is one of the softest blankets I have ever bought and the quality is great. The color is a little lighter than shown on my computer screen but it's still pretty and my 20 year old daughter told me it's a great blanket in her living room.
I usually am very pleased with my O purchases, but this throw doesn't look as pictured. In the picture it is beautifully vibrant with nice contrasting purples. When I received this throw its appearance is very muted and dull. The brightly pictured purple (lavender) is a dark purple and the dark purple stripes is just a shade darker than the background making this throw very drab looking. I will say though that the fabric is very soft, but also note the pattern is only on one side as well making it look unfinished. For the money I paid for this throw I will be returning this. I will give it one star because I have to give it at least one star.
