Warm but somewhat scratchy. Sheds a lot. I've put it in the dryer on low which pulled out a lot of loose fibers. Now it sheds less. Maybe I need to wash it to make it softer. . .? That being said it looks great on our rich dark brown leather sofa!

very attractive pattern. wears well. large enough for 6'1". very nice workmanship. wife says not as soft as expected, but I did not notice that. washed in cold water using "Forever New" powder from South Dakota. Alpaca throw did great, looks and smells great.. really dislike dry cleaning smell.

This is my third Johnstons blanket and my second alpaca (the third is the shetland). The alpaca is amazingly soft and sufficiently warm, and the pattern is handsome. My only complaint is that it's slightly smaller than the shetland, but it's still large enough. One of the best blankets I've used.

Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this blanket! Members of the house are particularly cold natured and are always looking for A light weight/warm blanket to carry around, and this hit the spot! On the other hand, it is wool so there are still issues involving Itchiness.

I originally found this blanket in a gift shop in Northern Scotland. I loved it, but was unable to carry it home with me. I was thrilled to find it here in the states...and for quite a discount in price. I have the blanket draped on the arm of my couch for chilly afternoons with a book.

I expcted this to be as soft as the Johnston of Elgins lambswool throws, which are amazingly soft and comfortable (I have two and have given several as presents). The throw is beautiful, but not soft like the lambswool throws. I am returning and sticking with lambswool.
