This is a slightly oversized throw which is why I looked at it seriously in the beginning. I bought this for my daughter's nursery as her colors are gray and cream. Then the cable knit on this forms a crisscross pattern it is not a straight cable all the way through. If you are thinking soft acrylic Cable knit or wool, do not purchase this because this is cotton. It has a beautiful hand and draping quality and is very well constructed and I would buy this again-- it is a perfect gift for a mom snuggling her baby.
I'm so in love!! I saw a pic of a cable knit throw in Sunset magazine and was pretty sure I was going to have to pay over a $80 to find one that was of good quality, but thanks to Overstock, I didn't! Other than the initial smell when it came out of the packaging (which went away with a good washing and some nice smelling Downy!) this throw is PERFECT. Held up perfectly during the wash also. Ordered grey, but am going to order a couple more in different colors. Took to son's baseball game and it almost walked away. :) I wasn't the only one who loved it!
I purchased 2 of these -- ivory & navy and they are perfect in my living room. I washed both (separately, of course) on cold, gentle to eliminate the AWFIL STENCH that they had and the smell came out, they did not shrink and yes, they did shed a bit -- but that 's to be expected. I was disappointed that the knit pattern is only on 1 side and the reverse side is a plain knit (no cable pattern). Make them look cheap (thus 4 starts, and not 5). I'll probably still search out some better throws, but for this first winter, they will suffice.
This is one of the best on-line purchases I have made. I bought two throws for my husband, One for his office which is always chilly and one for his leather recline, which he also finds cold to sit in. I did have some concern about the dog's claws making snags, but so far not one, and they roll up in the throws when they are cold. I do not think I could have found a better gift for husband and his two Yorkie "sons"!
Beautiful blankets. Well made. Great for a cool fall night. Purchased two of these throws for our living room for our clubs chairs in the taupe color. They match beautifully. The design is a chunky cable knit throughout they throw. Highly recommend this throw. Will look great in your living room or as a blanket in a bedroom or guest bedroom.
Wonderful well oversize cotton throw = love it! I moved and have been using this great throw. It is quality construction, soft and a purchase I am glad that I made!
This is a beautiful cable knit throw and what a great deal it is at this price. I researched for quite some time before deciding to purchase this throw for our living room. I wanted one that would be warm, but light weight and this one fits the bill. The color is beautiful and inviting. It looks great thrown over the arm of our chair and I love to cuddle under it at night while reading a book. It is so soft and I love the pattern. We have purchased two of these, one in the cream and one in the red and we love both of them.
Very nice quality! Heavy enough to keep you warm on a cold winter nights as an extra blanket, or a perfect throw for a chair or sofa. The throw is a very good quality, a nice comfortable thick material. And the cable knit style is very nice and pretty! And I really Love the color of this throw, I choose the blue. I love shopping at overstock you can always find good bargains here.
I love this throw, it's absolutely beautiful. My only issue is the smell when it arrived. I've ordered things from overseas a lot and I'm used to a "chemical" smell when stuff arrives occasionally. NOTHING LIKE THIS!! I had hoped I wouldn't have to wash it more than once, but after washing it and letting it air for a week it was still smelling. Second wash took care of it, but it makes me uncomfortable to think about what was on the throw that gave off such a strong odor for so long. The design and quality are absolutely beautiful though, so if you can handle a strong smell and have a separate place to air it go for it!!
Soft and warm. I got three different colors and I’m looking for a ladder to display them on. I’ll be getting additional colors as well.
We love the cable pattern( right in style), and the color( cream). Gave it to our son for gift and he loves the weight, pattern and color of throw. If you want a throw that is heavy and bulky ,this is not for you. This lightweight 100% cotton throw is great on a chilly night by the fire. Cable pattern is the latest look in all magazines. as mentioned,It did have an awful smell. It washed nicely and machine dried.Now is smells great!
Loved this afghan so much I purchased 2 more. The cable and diamond design is georgous and the color matches my modern couches. They wash and dry wonderful.
Nice throw blanket. We have it in red.
Very soft and love the cable knit pattern. Was hoping the it was more of an off white than cream color
This is a unique throw in that it is cotton, instead of the usual polyester. It is very lightweight - which is good for a summer throw. The knitting is beautifully done.
Beautiful knitting and keeps you warm while snuggling on the couch.
All cotton, nice weight. The taupe color is really nice and goes with our sectional and throw pillows since it is neutral in color.
This is exactly what I was looking for. I loved the color and the softness .... this blanket is great for the price.
The cable diamond knit throw from Amrapur Overseas is comfortable and works wonderfully with my modern rustic décor. It is warm, but not too heavy. It is great for keeping the chill away without getting too hot. When it first arrived, it had a nasty odor and I contemplated whether I would keep it. After steaming it in the dryer a couple of times with a dryer sheet and keeping it out, the smell eventually dissipated. Because of the initial smell, I only gave it 3 stars.
Soft, warm and beautiful; this feels so nice against your skin. This throw is lovely just laid over my overstuffed chair. Would purchase another in a different color just to lay over the end of a bed to give that little extra look of luxury.
