I love the color which is well represented in the photo, however the blanket is VERY easily snagged. In fact it was already "snagged" when I unwrapped it. (I have pets so I figured it would get that way soon enough, so I didn't bother with the hassell of returning it.) It is perfect for decorative purposes, but daily use on the couch, it would catch in rings or bracelets and snag really easily.
Color is great, the weave is pretty; the fabric is soft and cozy. But due to the snagging, if you need a throw for warmth and heavy use, another choice might be better. I love the hue, which is perfect on our grey-green TV lounge chairs, and will add pizzazz to an otherwise rather drab color scheme.
