Colorful and Comfortable
I got my Vera Bradley Throw Blanket in Tutti Frutti and could not be happier with it! I washed it once so far in cold on the gentle cycle and was pleased that it didn't pill- up. One thing I like about this blanket is that on one side the fuzz is shorter and on the other side it is a little bit lighter in color and is longer. It is much bigger then I expected, I am 5'6 and it isn't too short and has plenty of room for my legs to grow. It looks fabulous with my Paisley Meets Plaid comforter, everyday I look forward to coming home from school and cuddling with my new blanket!

SOFT and MANY USES
I have several throws and I use them for the following:
1) I have a lot of solid color blankets and I use the throw at the bottom of the bed for decoration. You open it wide and spread it across the bed. I put it at the foot of the bed and it looks quite lovely. for example, pale blue blanket then at the foot of the bed I have midnight bloom.
2) Sofa Cover - I have a solid color sofa, so I buy 2 of my favorite print and spread it out over the sofa, tucking it in so for example the throw would cover the back of the sofa (where you back would be if seated) and then I would tuck and more would cover the seating section. You will need 2 to 3 depending on the size of your sofa. Then I tuck the fabric edges under the seat cushion. It gives my family room sofa a nice look to ME. I also change the curtains to pick up a color in the throw. RIght now I have tutti fruitti on the sofa with pink curtains and I LOVE IT. I keep them on for a few months and then change. I also have done this with vava bloom

Casts a spell of comfort!
This throw should come with a warning that once you get under it, you will not want to leave your couch!! It feels like you just put on a pair of your most comfortable pajamas. The colors are rich and lovely and it is of great quality. I got it in Suzani and it brightens up our den in such a happy and inviting way. You will not regret getting this. Also makes a great gift for college bound students or someone recovering from surgery.

Softest fleece throw blanket!
I purchased this throw blanket for my daughter at Christmas and 5 months later it still looks like new! I have washed this numerous times and she has dragged it along to many sleepovers. This is high quality, very plush on BOTH sides and soft. It does not get 'pilly' or stiff like lower quality fleece blankets tend to do. It's a nice generous size and keeps you warm from head to toe. I have to buy one for myself and stop borrowing hers! Highly recommend.

I received one of these throw blankets for Christmas, and I'm in love! I have a lot of throw blankets, and the VB far surpasses any that I've bought anywhere else. It's larger, thicker, comfier, and more vibrant than any of my others. By far my favorite VB item!!

My snuggle buddy!
I bought one in Canyon to match the decor of my room and put that at the edge of my bed for "power naps". Little did i know that i would drag this around the house on chilly mornings, comfort my children on sick days, and pack on road trips since the hubby and i prefer different temperatures. I fell in love with this blanket, i went out and bought portobello road! :) The hubby was just as excited for our second blanket so now we don't have to fight over the softest blanket ever made!
Oh! one more thing! I've washed it numerous times and the colors have never faded and its just as soft and fluffy as the day i bought it!

My Most Prized VB item!!
I received my throw for my birthday in Jazzy Blooms and it is even more beautiful in person! Its the most soft and cuddly blanket I have ever owned! I initially thought that it would be to thick for the summer but I couldn't have been more wrong! Its light enough for the warmer months without being too thin. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blanket! They are addictive! They're like doritos, you can't just have one!!!

I just got my blanket today, and I cannot believe how big and soft it is! This is probably one of the last cold days we will have in Fl for months and I'm so excited to curl up in it!!!

Beautiful and soft blanket
I've been looking for a light weight throw blanket for a while, but nothing was tickling my fancy. Then I went to VB to check out some of the new colors in person. Ta Da! This blanket spoke to me. I bought it in Midnight Blues. I really love this blanket because the colors are rich, the blanket is very soft and warm and it's light enough to lug around the house and snuggle with on the couch (or wherever). The blanket design is not technically double-sided which might bother some people but the design does carry almost all the way through (but you can definitely tell the top from the bottom). If I didn't live in Hawaii I would probably get several different designs but one blanket is sufficient for me. I highly recommend it!
