I loved this blanket, it was beautiful and so elegant tossed over our beige leather furniture. Really nice. But for me the top fur part was too itchy, and my dog thought it was a toy that should be pulled off the couch at every opportunity. A very expensive toy I wasn't going to let her get a hold of. If she hadn't done that, I would have kept it because the underside IS so soft, and the top isn't unbearably itchy.
