The throw's name made me check the meaning of a word "bothy", which stands for a hut or a small cottage and it fits this throw perfectly. Its appearance is casual and fleecy, the colours are dimmed; it's very warm and soft. My husband and I like it so much that we ordered a few of them in different ... Read More

    The 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!

    This 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!

    fabric is luxurious, weave is just right. And the hand. Oh. The hand! It's pretty wonderful

    The 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.

    it'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.

About Johnstons of Elgin

The inherent luxury of pure Scottish cashmere is borne out in every garment that arrives from the legendary mills of Johnstons of Elgin - a centuries-old family firm doing business in the far North of Scotland since 1797. Using the finest cashmere and superfine wools in the world, Johnstons processes its fibers in a rare "vertical mill" system, where all of the dyeing, spinning, weaving and finishing are carefully controlled on site. Johnstons produces a range of cloth, knitwear and home furnishings at this historic plant - products that are probably best known for their irresistible softness to the touch. The secret, Johnstons believes, is in the finishing, a process still enhanced by the super soft, clear water from nearby River Lossie.
