I searched high and low for a down throw to use on the couch. At minimum $75 each, they were completely out of our price range. I saw this blanket for a fraction of the cost and thought I'd try it. I LOVE IT. Even as a thin blanket, it's still got plenty of fluffy down and feels great. The kids love it, and it's even better than a throw because we can lay it across the whole family while snuggling. I'm ordering another for my son's bed next. Great product but the amazing price makes it a million times better.
