Rated 1 out of 5 by Gordo1 cheesey faux fur throw
I got the "Wicked Plush Throw. It's way ugly. In Coffee Bean color, it has a cheap shiny look, like you'd see on an Elvis on velvet painting. I just wanted thick fleece to keep warm in a cold room. It's going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BahstonPaws So soft but beware of loose threads
I was so excited about this blanket. When I got this it was so soft and cozy. I had it for less than a month and noticed little threads popping up. After getting tired of cutting them, I pulled one and it made a 3 inch hole in it. I guess it might be partially my fault but at the same time you wouldn't expect a blanket to just fall apart. Very sad but I'm going to have to return it. I'm a little hesitant about getting another one but it's just so nice other than that! I'm torn, no pun intended.

This throw is thick, lush, warm. Blue color is vibrant. Just have it a few weeks so can't speak to pilling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sandy12 Cozy soft and warm but pills
I've had a very similar throw, no name brand, for years and was very happy with it. So when I saw this one here on sale, I didn't think twice about purchasing. I I wanted to be careful with this one while washing, since my other one started to pill ever since I started putting in in the dryer. But the LL Bean one was pilling right after first wash, a lot. Only one side though, the nice plushy one stayed untouched. I thought drier would make it worse but it actually helped to pick up some pilings. Don't wash it with anything else, just itself or the other same throw. Great, now I have purple pilling on brown throw and brown ones on purple plus everywhere else once taking out of the washing machine. After couple of unsuccessful washes, I spent hours picking pilings up by hand. I wanted to use this during winter on my couch but due to pilings I couldn't. It is warm, and as a layer on my bed, it doesn't make mess. It's been almost 2 years now, still pills, not as horribly, but still does. Won't throw it out, but have only one non messy use for it now. So I don't understand all those no pilling comments. I was and still am careful with everything I wash

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reenie123 Love These Throws!
I ordered our first two throws about a year ago, trusting the great reviews. Am I glad I did! These are some of the best throws we've ever owned. Wash after wash, the quality remains and they stay so soft. No problems with shedding or stitching coming undone as we've had with purchases from other companies. I found the colors we received (Foggy Blue & Sea Grass) to be very true. We love them so much that I ordered one for my 91 year old aunt's birthday - she proclaimed it to be as soft as a baby's blanket! I just today completed another order of two for birthday gifts for friends in Colorado. Thank you, LLBean, for another quality product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanCustomer58 Great throw
I bought one of these last winter for my dog to throw over him on his L.L. Bean dog couch and he loved snuggling up in this throw. It's very soft and comfortable. He was getting old and had arthritis, and the floors get drafty in the really cold weather, so this helped him out a lot. He passed away in the spring and now the dogs at the local shelter are using his throw and loving its snuggly comfort. It washes well, doesn't pill. I found it to be a great product. I also bought a second one for myself to snuggle under when I'm reading. Great product.

I didn't think LLBean could improve on this blanket/throw, but they did. The "only" thing I didn't like about the original was that I wanted to use it as a blanket but it didn't quite cover my toes. So when I saw that LLBean had this in an oversize version, I bought it immediately. It didn't disappoint. It's super warm and plush; the most comfy, cuddly blanket I've ever had. Perfect size for a twin bed. It washes well and absolutely does not matt and pill like other (lesser but often more expensive) plush blankets. I don't know how LLBean does it but I've never been able to find a plush blanket that didn't matt, until now. Color choices are great (mine is a neutral khaki and goes with everything). Now that I have the oversize blanket/throw I can give the smaller one over to the kids for lounging on the sofa. They're hard on blankets but I don't need to worry about them ruining this one because it's truly indestructible.

Thick, soft, and doesn't pill. Comes out of the wash looking perfect. I ordered the oversize in ivory and then the regular size in blue. Wish LL Bean would make them in a true off-white. The ivory is pretty dark.

I purchased two of these throws, one in cranberry a while back and one in dark blue six months ago. They wash perfectly. I've had no problem with pilling or shredding. They're light weight but do a great job of keeping us warm on chilly days/evenings. I am considering a third purchase in a different color as a decorative touch for the guest room. I can't say enough nice things about these throws.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anoka Shreds with each washing
Bought this for the living room couch, and it is a warm soft blanket and just what we wanted until I washed it. We had blanket lint all over the house and clothing, so I washed it again and the same thing happened - only more so! Regretfully I have to return this item.
