I labored over this purchase and combed the web to find the perfect throw. Although pretty and very soft, it is not well made. The weave is very loose, and although I was super careful I still snagged it in three places just opening the package. Aside from the snags, there were loose threads hanging and unwinding in several places on the blanket. I'm afraid to wash it as the other reviewer suggested because I think it will fall apart. I'll keep it but I wish I had got something I could really use and don't have to be so careful with.
