These blankets are COLD WATER WASHABLE. Johnston of Elgin praises itself for manufacturing woolen goods since 1797. Do you think that they had dry cleaners back then? Or do you think that Scotts were using these blankets for a while and, once dirtied up, they were discarding them? The answers to bot...

I have bought several Johnstons of Elgin lambswool throws over the years, and while this one is pretty and soft, it is also noticeable thinner and lighter than most of the others ones I have. Whether this is just one blanket or whether the quality is declining in general I don't know but knowing the thickness of my other throws I cannot give this a full 5 stars.

This is the third "throw" blanket that I have ordered from Johnston's of Elgin. These are extremely warm and versatile. The wool is very thick weave, almost thick enough for a rug and yet soft and cozy.
The colors are very vibrant. With the horrible winter that we have experienced in the south this year, I have used it daily while watching T. V. or just reclining. I have the brown and orange combination for my den. I also ordered the green, black, and red plaid for my living room. The latest addition is the pink, yellow, and mint.
After almost two years of use, my first one still looks quite new, even after daily use.
I have not actually weighed the blanket but my best guess would be 1 - 1 1/2 lbs . If it helps ... I used these blankets ( I proudly have 10 ! ) to cover my 9 month old , 2 yr old and 3 yr old grand-daughters while napping / sleeping at night . They are extremely light especially when opened and fully spread out . It is the warmest ... lightest blanket I have ever owned ... and very soft too !

I have not weighed it but the blanket is very light I would say it weighs around a pound. light but very warm. I just washed it for the first time...woolite on delicate. I have a front loader with no agitator. then it air dried over night on the ironing board under the ceiling fan.

Hi - I ordered two throws but not this pattern. However, my computer screen gave a realistic image of the colors of the two I ordered. I am very happy with them and they got used a ton during our Thanksgiving family reunion in the NC mountains.
