Dennis Basso Platinum Oversized Faux Fur Throw with Trim
We have 2 Dennis Basso throws already & love them so much we got 3 for holiday gifts. It isn't the first time I've given them for presents, either. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I think a little bit of Dennis' love is sewn into each one. You can feel it - like a big, warm hug! Just what I love to have & just what I love to give. XOXO Dennis! Love you!
Yes it is oversized a bit for a throw --as per the measurements--but that is only one reason why we love this " throw" ! ( it is nice to cuddle under for a nap and not have ur feet stick out!) to me it is the perfect weight since it is only fur on one side, I have others that are heavier that are thick fur on both sides - for extremely frigid nights.
This one is great alone or folded at the end of the bed for naps or extra warmth over the top of the other covers. It washes up nicely, I hang mine to dry over the shower rod, but it doesn't take long. I got mine last year when it was available in chocolate, with the chocolate trim. You can brush the trim with a soft baby brush if you want it to have a softer feathery look. I've seen some similar at linen specialty stores but they weren't priced as well , and certainly weren't available on " easy pay" ! I can not imagine anyone not being pleased with getting this as a gift.
This is the softest ,most luxurious throw you will ever own! Pure luxury!!!
too heavy and big for throwing over arm of sofa
It is very pretty and soft but the size is overwhelming. It is very heavy and too big to throw over the arm of the sofa for accent. It is more like a blanket and doesn't work for my use. It is my first Dennis Basso throw but will have to return it for smaller one..sorry
First Dennis Basso
I got this in the ivory. It is so amazing. It is my Sunday afternoon nap blanket. Love it so much. Wish I would have gotten more.
Wish I had bought more!
This is the first time buying Dennis Basso product but will not be my last! Wish I had gotten a couple more. Very soft and lush. Have to fight over it with the rest of my family! Love it!
~> THOUGH SOFT, FEELS CHEAP DUE TO THINNESS!! <~
"I love many Dennis Basso items, but find these faux fur throws too thin, which makes a beautiful item feel cheap. I like light, not heavy throws, coats, jackets, etc., but not so thin!
I would love these throws, and other items, including outerwear much more if there were a thin poly filling or thinsulate lining between the outside faux fur layers, and linings. Doing so would make them more realistic and much more luxurious feeling, while keeping them light and warm! They would also "puddle" much better.
I have returned every Dennis Basso fur item ordered due to their thinness. Even though they are now machine wash and dry ~ that is not enough to compensate for their terrible thinness."
Please Dennis, put a thin poly lining in your throws, scarves, etc. and even better for your outerwear, put in a thinsulate lining between the faux fur outer and lining ~ It would add so much warmth without bulk or weight.
Trim is a problem
Trim is as another viewer described "mangy". Just cheaply made. Other fur faux throws list a weight of about 750. I tried to add up the weights given and looks to be half . It could be great but it is not worth the money. Already other viewers having trouble with washing and drying.
Will not buy again
Best purchase ever
Good product. It doesn't shed and has good size .
Go for it
I use the throw as my only blanket because it feels incredible and keeps me warm and toasty. It washes well and looks amazing. I gave one as a gift and heard oohs and aahs upon unwrapping. I LOVE this throw/blanket. I don't hesitate recommending this.
The blanket is nice, but the trim is awful. It is like mangy dog fur. I got the leopard. Not sure if washing it would make a difference or not, since it is fresh out of the package and probably as nice as it's going to get. Most of the reviews are positive, so I wonder if I got a defective one from a bad batch or something. I'm very disappointed in the quality at this price point.
Excellent Product - THIS THROW IS AMAZE-BALLS!
I am writing this review one year after I ordered several of these throws both for my own personal use as well as for gifts. My family - with three small children - has LOVED these throws. I ordered 2 in the ivory.... yes, I said I have three small children! They are machine washable and have only gotten more luxurious after each wash. I followed the care instructions and laid them over my drying rack after machine washing and have had no problems with their quality.
I sent one of these to my 70+ mother who has used it year round and loves hers. I gifted a couple of teachers at my childrens' school with them and they continually stop me to tell me how much they enjoy these throws.
For what you pay for most quality home decor these days, this is well worth the investment whether for yourself or for someone you care about.
I am ordering more today to give as gifts this Christmas season as well as a couple for other rooms in my home.
In case you couldn't tell, I LOVE THIS THROW!!!
