This mink throw is luxurious in the front and so soft with the leopard back. You can't find this kind of throw anywhere else and it really is a great combination. It does shed a little bit.. so I do see the mink hair flying here and there but it's not unbearable. It actually makes me think that this is real fur and not faux. I think it's worth every penny for it and it will come in real handy for this upcoming winter season. Great purchase.
