I had forgot about this until I just reviewed another purchase. This is a great blanket. It is super lightweight but super warm. Now after eight+ years, four dogs, two cats, two kids, daily couch use and countless backyard fires it is still as good as new!!
I bought this down throw for my son in 2003 as a Christmas present. When I went to visit him last month I used this throw and it is still in amazing shape and condition. My son says they use it every night as well. This is an excellent product,thank you O!!!

I purchased a couple of these and pull them out when the weather gets cold. They are lightweight yet warm, soft but have a little body to them and just an all round great purchase for couch cuddling or curled up in a chair to read.

I got this for my toddler son's bed, so he'd have a lightweight down throw for chilly fall nights and then for under his comforter in the winter. It's very lightweight but seems to keep him warm. It's good for the price if you just want a small throw.
I thought I was getting a throw that had more of a suede feel to it, but this I thought, was still a good purchase until I washed it and the filling bunched up into the corners and left the middle of the throw flat and thinned out. I would have given this 5 stars on appearance and comfort before the washing but now, I will not buy this throw blanket again. Next time I will make sure that it is a square stitched pattern so maybe this won't happen again.
This is the second throw I have purchased. The first was for my mother as she watches CNN in their cool home. My father was taking hers so much, I got him one too. They both think it is perfect to sit and watch TV or to read a book with.
I wasn't completely satisfied with my purchase because I was expecting the blanket to feel more furry. It is called a microsueded blanket and microsuede is usually a synthetic material that feels like a combination of suede and fur. The blanket I recieved doesn't look or feel like microsuede. I do like the color. Also, the size is a little small.
I bought several of these for personal use and for gifts (7 in all). The kakhi plaid was extremely soft and comfortable while the burgandy plaid and navy plaid were stiff and uncomfortable. I will purchase these again, but only the kakhi plaid!
This is a terrible product There is almost no down at all. If you want to buy two sheets attached together and call it a thrown - go ahead and buy it. Fabric feels like paper. I doubt you will want to wrap yourself into this. They charge re-stocking fee for this (like it is electronics), and $4.99 for shipping. You have no choice but keep it. Cannot imagine what purpose will this thing serve! I will never use overstock.com again!
I ordered 'Amethyst', which I expected to be a shade of purple based on the picture as well as past experience. What I received was a rusty-red colored thorw. No way this should have been called Amethyst. I never actually took this out of the packaging so I can't comment on the quality.
I was shopping for a warm blanket to snuggle up with on the couch and this one is perfect. Lightweight, warm and easy to store, it's everything a throw should be. If you want something to keep you toasty while you're watching a movie, this is perfect. If you want something decorative, keep looking.
