I was looking for a light colored gold throw to be used on my leather sofa along with a pillow. I love the texture, other reviews said it snagged easily, but no one is handling it and so I'm not concerned about it. Mine is only going to be used as a decorative accent. Tag on the throw says dry clean, but I believe I remember the site saying it was washable. Not a problem for me. Love the light shade of gold, lighter than the photo online shows.
