This throw is the perfect weight and so very soft and comfy. I have had it for several months and have transitioned from couch snuggling to using it on my bed nightly. Unfortunately, it is not quite long enough for that purpose but the comfort level almost makes up for that.
I have worn it as a shawl and look forward to having it for travel in the future. It is, as my title states, nearly perfect.
I have to admit being apprehensive in spending $148 for a throw blanket. But I love cozy blankets and wool& and it was available in black and thusly I was persuaded to order. And I LOVE IT!! If I'd ever manage to take a trip again in my lifetime (I'm being dramatic, I'm only pushing 41) this is coming with me. I use it as my only blanket I sleep with at night now that the season has changed. It's cozy and comfy and soft, I'd buy it again for sure.
I've struggled to stay warm at night in bed, the location of my room is furthest away from our furnace. Now that I have this layer of merino wool underneath my bedspread I am perfect!
My two kids have their Woolino toddler blankets and now I have my own sized merino wool blanket throw.
It also is great repurposed as a scarf.
I can't wait to bring it with me traveling at the end of March. I'm bringing it on my carry-on!
Love this throw . . . color and weight! Just enough extra warmth to take the chill off without being stiffling!
I did not expect to love this throw so much, but the #astoriathrowchallenge convinced me to give it a try. In fact, I'd ordered it last fall and sent it back (jaw drop) because it felt a bit too thin for the squishy blanket I was imagining. Oops! I hadn't thought to style it as a wrap, a triangle shawl, a scarf on a cold winter's day, a substitute for a cardigan... it's perfect for all of these. I was going to knit myself a triangle shawl, but instead, I just fold my wrap into a triangle and away I go. Or I drape it around my winter coat and when I get to my destination, I wrap it around me like a shawl and feel oh-so-put-together. Even if it's not made of the sweatshirt-like Sierra fabric (which is what I'd been imagining) it also works well on the couch as a quick blanket, and I think it'll be great for travel, too, truth be told. The washed navy color is nice: a subtle blue, dark, works well as a neutral. I'm so glad I gave this throw another try!
