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.
Love this throw! This is my second one. I would have given it an excellent rating if it were a little bigger and thicker. I did put one in the washing machine (it is not machine washable) because my cat threw up on it. I put it on the gentle setting with cold water. I then put it in the dryer on low and it came out fine.
I had to send this item back. Unfortunately, the price it WAY too high for this throw. . The material looks cheap and is very thin. The purple color was pretty though so it was disappointing that I had to send it back for quality reasons.
I wanted this throw for myself., but I already have 5 faux fur throws I have purchased from Overstock. Com. They have the best quality faux fur throws I've been able to find. Anyway my daughter doesn't like faux furs for herself. She likes them ok but doesn't want one. I found this throw online at O and they had it in blackberry. It came in while I was at my daughters house so I offered it to her because it was a beautiful purple color and my daughter is crazy about purple. I didn't really want her to like it because it was so beautiful and soft I wanted it. Well she wouldn't give it back so I lost out.
This blanket was extremely soft! I was not expecting it to be so soft. There were a couple bad things though. The blanket was not as wide as I was expecting. It was short width wise. The blanket did shed a lot too. Otherwise it was great.
I needed a red blanket to compliment my new comforter and knew I wanted the faux fur. Thank goodness for Overstock, the only site that had a red faux fur. It is exactly what I was looking for.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close color match.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This faux fur is so soft, I can not get my cat off of it! It is shedding a little but nothing out of the ordinary.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate description.
The picture displays a vibrant grape-like color. I know the "description" says Blackberry but the actual color almost looks brown. yuk! My whole color palate for the use of this is purple, not brown/purple. I am a professional artist and I am not color blind and I have several computers including Mac's. The color on these computers all looked like a lovely rich, vibrant purple. The real color is hideous. It looks more like a brownish-purple than a real purple. And btw, it's made in China, so probably full of toxic chemicals, Ugh!
