Beautiful color (Ocean), perfect for the bedroom where it will be used, but the smell of chemicals was so strong when I opened the package I had to wash it immediately. Even so, the smell did not come out completely, so had to spray it all over with Febreze. Not sure if the smell originated in the material itself, or in the plastic packaging, if itself, not appropriate for a bed. Throw stood up to washing (gentle, cold) and drying (low) but 2 long threads came loose. I can tie them off, but I hope it lasts through another washing.
