I have purchased a lot of faux fur throws. They are fantastic in quality and softness. The problem is they are always too short. I have searched high and low and struck out. I even bought a different one here at Overstock but the color was very off from the picture. I bought one at Amazon and it was not soft at all. It felt rough. Then I purchased a real fur throw, something I never thought I would do. It's made of rabbit and it is so soft. It does have a downside other than being made from bunnies. You cover up with it and you are boiling hot within minutes and it is so heavy. It has been put away until winter. This one in purple is just perfect for year round and it covers your feet if you are taller. The color is perfect. It is also the only one I have seen where both sides are faux fur. It is light weight and great to cover with if you get a little chilly. I would like to put one in every room.
I bought the beautiful orange/red throw and I love the color. Unfortunately I would not have bought the throw had I known that dry cleaning is the way to clean it. I don't recommend the throw if you have infant children or cats as they both get the throw dirty pretty quickly. I would encourage Overstock.com to put in the product description that the throws need to be dry cleaned.
The fibers immediately clung to anything it touched. I was covered with small (green) 'hairs'. I have put it through the dryer twice on low/no heat and that took some off but I bought this to go on a velvet couch and I am not hopeful. I think it may continue to shed forever. There should have been some instructions.
It is a wonderful, easy throw, super soft, does not shed. Family loves it.

Beautiful purple color. Overall product is a bit thinner than expected (I have others purchased from a big box store that were actually nicer and less expensive, within this past year; not being sold there at the moment). This is still a nice throw, and was given as a gift. The recipient seemed happy to have it.
I've purchased dozens of faux fur throws over the years, both for my family and as gifts for friend's homes. I've yet to find this quality, size, softness and variety of color choices offered by Overstock for this piece. Would recommend this throw at twice the price!
The question of being color blind goes out of the window with this one. I ordered the "Harbor Grey" thinking it'd be a dark grey when in fact this color doesn't even resemble a stone grey or gunmetal grey. It is a very bright sea foam green. The material is quite soft so I hope exchanging it will get an accurately described color.
I love the feeling and warmth of this throw but the color is very misleading. The Blackberry appears to be a very dark purple in the photo. It is much more of a muted purple and not the rich look of the photo. However, I am not returning it because it will still work for me. I was quite surprised at the difference.
One reviewer said the color wasn't really a rich purple--it is, but the material's also extremely reflective so in yellowish artificial light you end up seeing it as the weird brownish tone. I don't mind either way. This is silky and nice to snuggle under on the couch. I am a little concerned about how it'll last/how to clean it. My cat likes it as well. Overall satisfied, though it was rather pricey.
