This bedspread is just beautiful, but.... a few things I wanted to mention. The linen is a little more thin than I thought it would be and having dogs just made it impractical. It was mentioned in other reviews that it wasn't sized properly for the bed and they were right! The length was good but the width really fell short. Thinking I hadn't put my "filler" in yet nor had it been cleaned it was just too risky. I had to give it a 4 because it is something I would have loved to keep if it were just me and my dreams. Sadly, it's going back..
