I was searching through STPost as I often do and found this item in the wool section.
Interestingly enough I'm working only an hour away and wanted to go to Northfield to see and appreciate the James/Younger history there and Faribault Woolen Mill is on the way so I stopped in. Nice layout, great people and you'll be surprised at the prices in the 'mistakes' section. Seems the Pink/Grey throw is out of production....looked at others in production and purchased it on return.
This item is a wonderful blend of pink&gray that doesn't make you want to avert your eyes. NOT scratchy! It felt thin in my hands but when I laid it over me the Merino wool in this weave is amazingly warm and comfortable. The size is good for the couch and my granddaughter loves pink. I can be a hero!
Don't forget with STPost you can get a discount too!

There are only two things I would change about this:
- It's a bit rough
- Blanket stitch edging
Although it's a bit on the rough side, it's not itchy or scratchy.
It's also a substantially heavy throw, very warm, and a generous size that allows for comfortable and cozy lounging.
The blanket stitch edging is done nicely, blends in, and is not easily noticeable.
All this at a steal of a price means that not only am I extremely happy with it, but that I am ordering another.
