I wasn't tremendously optimistic when I ordered this throw...photos are sometimes so misleading regarding quality,etc. This throw, however is as luxurious as it looks, has excellent workmanship, is warm and cuddly, and totally addictive during these cool November days. I can't wait to settle in on my sofa with a good book or movie and wrap myself in its furry warmth. You will not regret this purchase for one second!!!!!
