[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This easily became my favorite throw. I laundered it immediately and later that evening wrapped up in it while watching TV. I expected to still be chilly but cute. Such was not the case. I was comfortably warm and cute :) The material is so soft and cozy, the longer fibers don't tickle my face or shed everywhere either - I appreciate that. I did notice some "fur" on my phone case but my case is silicone (I'm actually not sure if it is silicone) and I think it acts as a magnet to stringy lint. Anyway. This throw is light weight and insanely soft. The smooth side feels like silk and the fluffier side almost feel like chinchilla fur. I like the color play too, it had to grow on me though. It's like I like it but I don't like it but I don't know what I'd do different so, I like it. I like that when the fluffier side is smoothed, the texture looks sort of cable knit or maybe it's more wavy - like a fur. Whatever it's called, it's a very pretty accent. Overall, I like the throw very much and look forward to curling up in it and not wanting to get out of it every day. The only way this could be better is if it was larger.
