I was very disappointed in the quality of this throw. When I first opened the package, I was horrified as the throw appeared to have 3 fairly large holes in it. The holes are actually very large spaces between the rows of yarn. I took another reviewer's advice and washed the throw in cold water on a very gentle cycle and dried it on low. That helped as it tightened up the yarn (and it also removed the odor of the UPS truck). However, the "holes" are still evident when the throw is opened. I chose not to return the throw because the color is perfect with our comforter and it is just tossed at the end of the bed, so I can cover up the "holes". But honestly, even though the price is less than some more expensive throws, I believe this one is not worth the money. And speaking of color...the description says "cream" and while it does have cream in it, the primary color is a sage green, which just happens to work fine for my purposes, but...FYI.
