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.
I have to give these throws a 3 because the color was completely off what I expected and they are much thinner than I expected too. I bought the brick/ivory and the "brick" is more like dark pink salmon colored. Overall, I think it will be fine for my decor, but way lighter than I wanted. Also, I'm not sure what blankets these other folks that say they are "thick" have felt before, but these are not thick at all. Very thin material and I can imagine these getting snagged quite easily based on the looping. If I were at a store, I doubt I would have purchased these. However, I won't return them because it was a good deal for two.
I ordered 2 of these in the cream/ivory color. When I received the package, they had packed 1 ivory and 1 white. As I was putting them on the same sectional sofa, this wouldn't work. Luckily, customer service was great about shipping a new cream colored throw. Unfortunately within the first week of having that throw on the sofa, it got a hole in the middle. While the hole started small and could be easily hidden, it has stretched due to the knit and now makes the throw unusable. The other throw has held up great, so I'm not sure what the difference is. The throws are very pretty and a nice weight, but not worth the money if they won't hold up.
