Colors on the throw are orange, green, grey, blue with red trim around the entire edge. Both sides of this throw are printed. The material is best described as a thick flannel. It provides plenty of warmth for Texas winters and great to use on the couch, chair or even on the bed. The pile on the flannel is short and it does not shed. I have not washed it yet, so I cannot comment on how well it washes and dries. The best part about this throw is that it has no harmful dyes or chemicals. The colors are very vibrant with a sort of Southwest flair. Great gift item!
