I love cashmere, to the point that I wear cashmere socks and cashmere hoodies. So, when i decided to buy my first throw, Overstock was my place of choice. Overstock came through with great, reliable service. However, the throw is a bit scratchy, more of a wool feel than soft and supple. There is pilling already but a good lint brush fixes that. I told my friend that with proper laundering, his throw should get softer. I have learned to stick to Mongolian cashmere when it comes to blankets.
