These blankets are perfect for summer fresh nights in Southwest, they are warm without suffocating, and heavy without smashing you. And beautifully rustic as cotton can be. I am happy I ignored some negative reviews. I bought coral and plum both in king size and am very pleased by the quality and weight of the products. They had some lint when I opened the package but after laundry (cool water, less detergent) and sun drying there was no lint anymore. Shrinking was minimal so they still fit my queen bed beautifully, colors did not fade. I must add that by washing them, they are thicker and more volumous. Will certainly buy more for guests.
This blanket is not the best quality I've exerienced in throw blankets but, for the price and basic utility, it is perfect! I ordered the gray and it had a very rustic yet modern feel to it and is a fun accessory that complements my eclectic decor.The size is perfect and the loose weave may is just pefect for naps or snuggling on the couch.
First, I *might* recommend this to a friend for a decorative accent for their living room or bed room. The throw is meant to be for decoration, not for warmth. The color was a little darker than I anticipated. It is easy to catch the throw on corners of furniture because of the way it was made. The loose weave of the fabric makes it easily snag-able, and it picks up everything from loose hair to feathers. The fabric is soft to the touch. If you're looking for a rustic looking 'accent', this would work.
This will shrink, so buy accordingly. It's not a soft, fluffy blanket by any means. Picture more of a farm house/pottery/rustic type of bedroom. I am completely satisfied with this item with the exception of the shrinkage.
