The only friends and family I would recommend this to would be those in Florida, or anyone who may have milder winters than Georgia. The quality was disappointing, to say the least, comparing the photo to the product received. They are fairly thin and looking at the photo advertised, there may be two throws on the photo, layered one on top of another. They do NOT look this thick in true life. The length of the fibers look much longer on the photo than what I received. I bought one for my husband and one for myself. Not sure if I am wanting to keep them.
