Other reviewers complained about the thickness but I think it's thick enough. It's warm, soft and tightly woven. My complaint is a thick thread down the middle - inside that makes the material gather on the outer sides and it's not something that can be washed frequently. I washed mine upon receiving in a garment bag and the fringe was all knotted together, it took hours to detangle.
I ordered this throw based on others reviews that stated it was thick, rich, nicer than average, etc. It's not any better quality than the throws they carry at Pier One which cost less and I even have one in my town. I was hoping for a much thicker, more luxurious throw. I had to pay shipping of course which isn't bad at $2.95 but it cost $10.17 for me to return it. That turns this transaction into a poor one. Be careful about what you order from OVERSTOCK since returns are not free!
This is a beautiful soft warm throw to have in our new living room - we decided to go neutral with black and burgundy accents, so this was the perfect throw to add to use on those chilly nights. It was exactly as described and a higher quality than those I found in local stores. This one is thick but not heavy and oh so soft! I can count on Overstock's quality and pricing, so it was a no-brainer for me!
