Love this blanket - ordered the neutral color for everyday use in my living room - love the smell of the wool. Last year I traveled to Ireland - could not have purchased this throw there for this price. So happy I tuned in and caught this item
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Lucky Irish Throw in Red!
Had to get this in the red and so glad I did, even though we already have enough wool throws from Ireland to last a lifetime! I wanted more red touches for a greens and whites room that is always our Christmas room through that season. This Christmassy throw is already draped in there and since it’s not obviously a Christmas throw when it’s folded up a little and thrown over the arm of a big chair, I’m getting away with it this summer. Nobody’s noticed it as anything but a lovely throw. It’s a great addition to my other Christmas throws.
This red is a lovely red, and coordinates nicely with the burgundy and other true and pinkish or wine leaning reds I’ve been spreading around the room in the form of throws, drapes and pillows. I was glad it wasn’t a brownish red, which was not what I was going for. The throw has a good weight to it, and is a very good value, considering the quality you are getting and where it comes from.
I used to knit quite a bit but haven’t had time to do much of that in years, so it’s been nice to buy a new Irish throw (or other item) every year or so as winter approaches. A throw is an easy way to change up décor and add color in most rooms, and a comfy one when the winter chills set in. Nothing like it with a big pretty cup of something yummy. For reading, watching movies, or just visiting whilst keeping your toes cozy.
Thanks again and again, Ireland and the Q, for all the wonderful Irish wooly and other things I love to add to our home a few times a year.
P.S. What about some things from Scotland and England too?

I'm sorry but I think I'll have to return. I hate to leave a bad review after all the 5 star ones, but I just don't see myself using this as a throw, it's scratchy. I am not a picky, complaining person either. I have a merino wool long sweater that I bought from qvc and I love it. Its soft, comfortable and not scratchy. This is a beautiful throw but it's not for me. Maybe I'll exchange to see if I get a softer one

I love both the red and green ones that I purchased for Christmas gifts. I will need at least one more for me! I am thrilled with the quality! I was wondering if they would be scratchy, but they are not. It is a marvelous gift for anyone!

I just received the dark green Christmas merino throw by UPS yesterday afternoon. It is gorgeous! I plan on putting it on my bed in November as the weather cools.
I want to buy another green one, but the green is sold out. I am hoping that more green will become available soon.
Love this throw!

I just received this lovely Kilronan Merino Wool throw blanket in the red. It is truly gorgeous. The red is an absolutely beautiful shade of wine with no "muddiness" to the color at all. It is so soft and the weaving/patterns are perfectly done. The tree pattern is subtle enough to be used year-round, IMO. The size of the throw and its weight are remarkable. It is a very high-quality item.
I ordered the matching pillow cover, but I haven't received it yet. I'm sure I will be really glad I ordered it to go with this stunning throw.
I hope it will be offered in more colors at some time in the future. I may order the one called "parsnip", but I'm hoping to read reviews that describe that color a bit better. Natural can mean a lot of different shades from lighter to deep beige. I would also like to see it in a soft sage to mix into shabby chic decor.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Moondance ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS
As soon as I saw this. I knew it was coming to my home. Ordered the red for the Holidays and it also works in my Family Room for all year use. If you are fond of the Aran Sweaters as I am, you can expect the same quality and softness. It is so well made. Love the Christmas Tree and Snowflakes. They are suttle but still stand out. The border is fabulous. I love everything about it. I ordered the matching pillow cover with the button detail and couldn't be more pleased. I fact I spotted the pillow cover before the throw and knew I would be so pleased with this set. I am actually going to order 2 more pillow covers in Red and I am going to order the Parsnip Throw and pillow for my Formal Living Room or I may wait to see if the natural comes back in stock. Regardless I am getting another set in a neutral color. I know I will love either choice.
Don't hesitate. This set is truly unique and so beautiful!

I ordered 2 of these throws, the green and the parsnip, and they are GORGEOUS! The Irish craft of these is superior and exceeds any/all throws or bedding I have ever purchased from the Q. Although they are calling this Holiday, it is a pattern, as only the Irish can do, that can be used all fall/winter. It is soft and a substantial weighted throw with a slightly open weave similar to the Irish merino wool sweaters,. I know they will be providing years and years of warmth and Irish flavor to my home.I also purchased 2 of the Kilronan Merino Wool Holiday Throw Pillow Covers (1-green/1-parsnip (H209029), and tried to add the link to this review but could not (yet another web site glitch). Bravo Kilronan more styles and colors PLEASE!
