This is an awesome throw in lots of ways. I'm actually glad I have it but be forewarned...you need to wash this throw 2-3 times before the shedding abates. I had fur from one end of my couch to the other after just one evening of using it right out of the package. It's fine now and truly a nap time pleasure.
Bought this blanket for my Husband's recliner. I didn't think he would use it, just set it aside when in his chair. I cover the chair when he isn't in it, now even if he is in it. He loves it. It does NOT shed like the mink one (which only sheds alittle). the coloring is animal-istic. Great buy! would be excellent gifts even for the men in your life!!!
How gorgeous is this throw? Let me count the ways: compared to the coyotes that drift like smoke through my yard, the fur looks incredibly realistic- gray near the root, then cream, then golden tan tipped with black. (The only thing that gives it away as faux is that the hairs are a little shinier at the ends than natural fur; no big deal.) The colors of the fur shift as the blanket drapes and folds, just like a real pelt but without the "yuck!" factor. The fur side is soft, but what is really amazing is the softness of the other side, which is covered in chocolate brown (microsuede?) fabric. I swear it is softer than a baby rabbit's ear. The throw is large enough for two to cuddle comfortably beneath it without fighting for coverage. I had to make a rule that it stays on the couch, otherwise my 10 year would wrap it around himself and wear it everywhere. Definitely my favorite household purchase of 2012.
If you're looking at a Woolrich blanket called the "Gettysburg," you're obviously a serious traditionalist. The Gettysburg makes no apologies for being a solid, scratchy wool blanket evocative of the Civil War era. I don't know if it's quite big enough to keep your horse warm on a cold winter night, but it's tasteful in appearance and feels just fine as a throw on our sofa.
I love most things about this blanket. BUT I purchased this because I wanted a longer blanket.
The text on the site says 50x70 and label on the product says 50x60. Not cool. Well I am a bit colder from the missing length.;)
oversized throw is right! Super soft, warm, vibrant colors, durable, and definitely quality!
I was a bit worried about price tag, would it show up and not be worthy of the high price tag? was I wasting my time?
but I wasn't having much luck elsewhere with oversized throws priced less, so I decided to give in with Cyber Monday coupon and boy am I glad I did! I immediately went back to purchase another pattern after this one arrived and was disappointed its currently out of stock :( waiting for the notification email so I can grab it asap!
we have a 10' x 10' x 48" deep, dark gray chenille sectional and a black 80# pitbull who lays wherever he wants. we prefer multi color throws as they hide little black hairs, which is also why we keep multiple throws on the couch. this messina oversized throw is worth every penny for humans and active dogs jumping up on the couch!!! my mom has even come over a couple times this past week and keeps questioning where I got it and for how much guess I'll be grabbing her one also :)
Things i didn't think of or found out after buying this blanket.
* How heavy the blanket is but is super warm when under it.
* Extra soft microfiber plush backing is only attached around the edge. can curl at feet.
* Edge of blanket isn't straight (some what noticeable)
Love love love this blanket for around the home or camping. The wool blend makes it warm and cozy for when you want to drink that cup of Joe in your hammock or just wrap up on the couch. Best part, it's made in the USA.
I bought this for myself for snuggling up on the sofa. My dog and both cats seem to want to be right on me when I'm under this fabulously soft and warm blanket. It is heavy and warm and I expect will last for generations. Love Pendleton - still the same quality as they were 100 years ago and still made in the USA.
But as others have mentioned the assembly instructions could be clearer. No text instructions just pix. So if you are not familiar with cam locks, as I was not, watching a utube video on how they worked made it easier.
Before I purchased this, I had read reviews about it so I knew pretty much what to expect. I was not disappointed at all....it is gorgeous. And very, very soft!!!! Love it...it's a great accent at the foot of my bed
This is a lovely and very soft throw. The gray side is a silvery gray and the 'aqua' side is more blue than green, nonetheless it's a beautiful color and the throw is well made and does not shed. Loved is so much I ordered a second one.
I purchased the teal throw to give a little pop of color and texture in the family room. It's very unique in its shagginess (reminds me of cookie monster)! The underside is velvety smooth and cozy (see pic). It does not shed and the color is gorgeous. I can't see using the leather belt for anything in particular but it was a cute addition upon arrival. Also the size is perfect. Recommend!
