Is this colorfast? I want to put it on a beige colored sofa, will it fade onto the sofa? Is it soft enough to sit on in the summer?
I really do love this throw. The bold pattern, the softness of the material, the color, and the edging details are all beautiful. The pattern color is reversed on the opposite side. This is lightweight and currently being used as a decorative coverlet on my off white sofa for the fall season, but I will use it as a part of my bedding sometime in the future as well....

During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He found work as a janitor in a textile factory. 'I was completely fascinated with the work they were doing,' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. The owner asked who kept adjusting the loom, and was surprised to learn the culprit was me! When she asked why I was using the loom, I replied that I wanted to learn. She said if I really wanted to learn, I should learn to assemble one of the spare looms in the warehouse. That was one of the most important moments in my life. It was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.'

Absolutely beautiful. Even better than advertised.Read More
This is a beautiful blanket. It is very high-quality but in a lighter weight, and nicely hand loomed. Do not expect a thick wooly blanket. The alpaca wool gives warmth and softness without heaviness. It has a graphic modern look, although I am using it as a sofa throw in a very traditional family room. I am very pleased with this purchase.Read More
Questions & Answers
Thank you for shopping with us stutlewski. This is not colorfast. It would be very comfortable to sit on or take a nap with. You could also soak in cold water with salt or white vinegar first to make this colorfast before using on your sofa. Have a great day.
