I tend to get chilly easily, and I was tired of curling up on the couch with an entire comforter. Because we recently acquired a chaise, I decided to purchase something a bit lighter that consumes less space that I could use to keep myself warm. I've taken a few naps with this throw, and it keeps me fairly warm! Plus, the color is nice, the material is soft, and it looks great when draped over the top of the chaise. Highly recommended.
