This is an excellent blanket! It's warm, attractive, and seems well-made. I bought it on sale, so I feel like I got an amazing deal! It is a tiny bit itchy, as all wool products usually are, but we don't mind at all. Great blanket!

I was looking for a blanket that was larger than the standard fleece throw and this met the requirements. As previously commented, the blanket had a chemical smell when first opened. I hung it outside for a week and the sun and wind took care of that. Now it has a slightly gamey smell. It is a bit scratchy, mostly because there are very, very small sticks, twigs, and associated plant matter in the wool. If I had to guess, I would say the wool was never really cleaned prior to being spun into fibers, hence the gamey smell, the twigs, and three star rating. If I had paid the full retail price for this blanket I would have returned it because if these issues, but with ST's great pricing and the email discount code, I'm quite satisfied. On cold nights, I keep my tweezers handy and I pull out the twigs while watching TV. I figure in a year or two, this will be super soft.
