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.
