This throw blanket is exactly what I was hoping it would be: soft, warm, and beautiful. The colors were just as pictured on the website (ordered the olive green one: gorgeous on our olive green couch). Everyone in the family loves it and wants to snuggle up in it. Maybe that's the downside: it would need to be larger to cover all three of us! Also, it is a very loose weave, and I wonder if it will easily snag or get stretched out of shape if not handled with care -- definitely could be a problem if you have a dog or cat. But these two issues are not enough to detract from a lovely and comfy new addition to our living room, one that everyone loves.
