Love them!!! Great quality!
I have six of the vera throws and they are so soft and durable. My dog loves them too! I have washed all of my throws several times following the directions listed on the tag and have never had any issues. I'm not sure why others so stating they have shedding issues. They are the best throws and I will continue buying them as Vera keeps coming out with amazing new colors and patterns!

The SOFEST blanket ever!
I ordered this throw online in Sun Valley after reading the reviews. Since this was the only item I ordered at this time, I was expecting a small box to arrive in the mail. To my surprise, I received a humungous box! I opened it up to find the softest, largest throw blanket I had ever seen! It's absolutely gorgeous and large enough for 2!
While the product description says that the design is printed on both sides, it isn't actually printed on both sides.... for anyone who has ever bought a patterned throw blanket before, you would know that the design is clearly printed on one side and although the mirror image of the pattern can be seen on the reverse side, it is a little fuzzier and a more faded version of the actual image. But that's just the way all patterned throw blankets are made. Sun Valley is a gorgeous pattern, however, the blue is a much darker navy than in the picture.
I washed this blanket once upon receiving it just to get the factory smell out of it and again a month later. The first time I washed it, the blanket shed a bit - very very minor - but the second time I washed it, there was no shedding at all. The first time I washed it, I washed it alone on a gentle cycle with cold water (vs warm as indicated). I let the blanket air-dry for the most part and then threw it in the dryer on low heat for 5 mins just to get it to fluff up a bit. The second time I washed it, I washed it again in cold water on a gentle cycle with some other dark-coloured blankets (Sun Valley is a dark coloured pattern) and then threw it in the dryer on low heat. I don't know why so many people were having problems with shedding. Maybe there was some defect in the fabric or something but I haven't had any problems other than the very first time I washed it, but there was only very minor shedding and most throw blankets will shed a little the first time you wash them. The second time I washed it, there was no shedding at all.
I highly recommend this Vera Bradley product. It is super soft and an absolutely wonderful addition to any living room or bedroom. I am looking forward to purchasing another very soon.

My favorite blanket!
I have owned this blanket for a while now and it is my go-to blanket for pretty much anything. I use it all the time to cover up with when I am laying on the couch and I even use it as an extra blanket on my bed just in case I need one. I love that it is over-sized so that I can actually cover my entire body with it. Other reviews have stated problems with fuzzies getting everywhere after washing, but I haven't had any problems with mine. Overall this is an amazing blanket and I would recommend it to anyone!

Soft and Colorful
This is SUPER Soft and all the patterns are beautiful ! Everyone chooses this throw above all the other throws we have, even our cat! Be careul how you wash it though, I washed one of ours and after washing and drying it wasnt as plush and soft, but the colors were still as vibrant.

They are perfert to snuggle with on a cold night and I would highly recommend these blankets to everyone , these blankets are a must have and well worth the money.

I purchased this blanket for a birthday gift for my sister. We were both very disappointed with the quality of the blanket. Although very soft, it
was finished off terribly. The stitching was very uneven and the corners looked like a child had stitched them. This certainly was not Vera Bradley quality!

Love them! So does our Chihuahua
Have 6 of them and I'm lucky if I get to use any of them. The kids have their fav, hubby has his, and our fur baby hogs the rest of them. They are so soft and comfy. Like these a lot better than the stadium blankets that came out a couple yrs back.They wash well-I always wash several at one time or with similar items. Only complaint is that one of the 1st ones I recvd had a small hole in it-so always check them over really good when they arrive.

I am addicted to this blanket. I have 5 of them!
I bought the first of theses blankets as birthday gift as my dog's crate liner for winter. When I got them, I was like, this is too pretty and soft and generous in size that I want one too! So I did and my dog and I now have matching blankets! Then I wanted one for my other couch so I ordered one online but erroneously sent to my in-laws address. A few days later got a call from my MIL thanking me for sending her such a beautiful gift and how much she loves it and uses it every night watching tv. Okay then, and since my husband also loves to use this blanket because none of the other ones are long enough to cover his whole body I ordered two, one in sun valley and one in dogwood. Saw it on sale today and had to order another one. LOL. For me it washes well, doesn't pill or fade, and my dog doesn't chew on it. Love love love!

Love the Blanket but not the shedding
I received the throw for Christmas and absolutely love it but NOT ALL THE SHEDDING. I washed it seperately and it still shed. Very dissapointed as it is so warm and cozy.
