I needed a throw for hammock use. Cushions I have in area are yellow, grey, white and black, our hammock is yellow... This compliments all my other colors and patterns. The weight is nice for cool evenings and the back is a pretty solid grey that happens to match the hammock pillow! Even left it in the rain once and it bounced back without issue. Soft and well made... Yellow is not too bright or too gold... Just right.
