Reviewed by The Merino Marauder from Brooklyn on Monday, February 24, 2014The wifey loves it because it's so soft. It's not quite as warm as our 100% lambswool throw, but it's so much softer. I ended up getting another one for my mom, who loves it as well. It's a luxurious item. Treat yourself!
Reviewed by Joanne of Asheville from North Carolina on Saturday, December 7, 2013This throw is truly soft and full, not at all thin, obviously well-made and if treated with respect should last a long time. It's just right to snuggle down with for a nap!
Reviewed by The Outlawyer from SW Va on Friday, November 29, 2013fabric is luxurious, weave is just right. And the hand. Oh. The hand! It's pretty wonderful
Reviewed by charlieo from Long Island, NY on Monday, November 11, 2013The tag refers to this nas a 'rug', maybe that's a Scottish term for 'throw'?
Regardless, it seems to be a very nice blanket.
Not luxuriously soft, but nicer than most wool blankets.
The blue is much more muted than pictured, which is good, and the throw is larger than expected.
If I don't find moth-holes in this in the next few years, I'll see this as a good purchase.
Reviewed by waverlywaver from vermont on Wednesday, October 30, 2013it's pretty much as described. not too scratchy, not soft either--but okay. got it for my father. he likes it alot. i was disappointed that the pattern of the weave was not really as pictured--the herringbone look in the picture? not apparent in the brown color we got. it looks more like a solid. maybe other colors actually look herringbone, but not this one. but it goes with his sofa okay anyway.
it arrived in a clear plastic bag, in good shape.
