The throw with its coppery metallic feature is absolutely gorgeous. It is very well made with heavy cotton. It is not soft and fluffy like some synthetic throws might be. It keeps its shape and does not shed. Very high quality. I thought it might be a challenge to care for--and be more for decor than daily use. But I've washed and dried it twice according to directions, and it comes out perfectly. The fringe stays intact. I have gotten compliments on the throw and recommend it without hesitation.
