This is just a beautiful throw. I use it at the foot of my bed. It has unique popcorn like stitches throughout, and a beautiful weave behind that. It is lightweight, but looks much heavier and is very warm.. The yellow color I ordered is a very light gold and blends in with the colors of my bedroom. It compliments gold or yellow, greens, blues, beiges, etc. You will love it. Give it a try! You won't be sorry. I would recommend it as a decorator piece rather than a blanket you just throw over you. It is a little too delicate for that.
