I ordered this throw forewarned by previous reviews that the color was not exactly as portrayed. However, I was not expecting such a total difference. There is no semblance to any hue commonly called red, rust, or even orange-ish red. This throw is more burnt orange. If that's not the color you're expecting, you may be happier with something else. Other than the color, the quality is ok, though rather thin for a throw in this price range. I am returning it.
