We have 2 Beagles who love to snuggle, and 4 family members who use these throws daily. We bought one each of the blue, purple and rose and 2 of the green. The colors are very, very pretty and add a nice touch of color to our living room, where we keep the blue and purple and the family room where we keep the greens and the rose color. These throws have already been washed and dried 3 times and have not faded. The dog's nails have not loosened any stitching loose even though one likes to scratch and dig before laying down. The blue is a cobalt, almost deep periwinkle shade; the rose is close to a bright coral color, and the fabric of the blue and rose fabric is softer and not as slippery as the other colors. The purple looks like the picture online, and the green is just a little more yellow than shown, more like pear than kiwi / lime. The purple and green fabric is a little like sleeping bag fabric and does make a little noise and is a little slippery, but it is not a problem for us. The inside filling has shifted slightly in the corners, but has stayed flat everywhere else. The stitching is well done in even squares. The sizes are not 100% consistent for all 5 we bought, but for throws that are folded when not in use, this is not an issue. The warmth is just right - cozy but not too hot or too thin. The sizes work for all of us including my 6' tall husband.
