Asda Smartprice FleeceThrow
Advantages: Cheap, Good Size
Disadvantages: Sell fast,
The ASDA Smartprice fleece throw is an excellent addition to the stores value range. The 130cm x 150cm piece of material makes an excellent blanket to snuggle in on the winter nights. I purchased mind for £2 (RRP £5.00) when it was on offer. It offered me the opportunity to burrow down on the sofa wrapped up warm, with a book whilst the lads watched television.
The only colour available at the time was a warm chocolate brown version, though ASDA do stock a variety of colours, including charcoal and striped. The offer was obviously popular as there were just two left, both in the chocolate colour.
You will find them with the standard green and white Smartprice paper packaging wrapped around the centre of the rolled throw, holding it together in the home furnishing isle alongside the bed linen.
The fleece is thin but reasonably fluffy. It isn't thick enough to bobble and leave small bits of wool lying around, which is great as it also means the fleece doesn't cling to clothes or the sofa. The throw is plain with just the stitching around the edges to keep it together. It also has a small label on one side which gives washing details and warning details, such as do not leave on coloured fabrics when damp due to staining and keep away from fire and flames.
It is recommended that the fleece is washed before its first use, but I purchased mine with the purpose of using it immediately as I was cold, so there was no waiting for it to be washed and dried. I cannot see how this has had an adverse effect on the product or its ability to do what it is designed to do.
It should be washed at 30degrees and with similar colours just in case the colours bleed, it can be tumbled and ironed, although I am not sure I would risk putting such a cheap material in the tumble drier. The blanket is big enough to cover two should you choose to or it could be used for an additional layer to any children's cot or bed. It would not be large enough to cover a double bed adequately.
I personally wouldn't keep these in the lounge on display as a throw as it's not the most attractive throw in the world; however I keep it in the wardrobe and bring it out on chilly days/nights when I need an extra layer. This is a bargain at £2 and very good value for money. I would fully recommend the throw, providing you don't have high expectations for a good quality addition to the furniture. But if you are looking for something which looks good on display I would suggest finding an alternative.
