“ Brand: TU / Misc House Type: Throw „
I was bought this for my birthday and I am sorry to say that although it looked lovely, it just isn't very good.
My lounge is teal and so I'm always looking for nice accessories to go with it. My daughter bought me this from Sainsbury's and I thought it looked lovely.
The throw isn't as big as i was anticipating though, it only really covered three quarters of the back of my sofa so made it look a bit odd, it wasn't long enough to cover as much as I would like. It is a funny material so that when you stroke it one way it's rough and the other way it's very soft. My sofa is a similar kind of material but much more fine and I found that bits of fluff from this throw rubbed off onto my sofa which is dark and so it looked really messy. It looked as though my sofa constantly needed to be hoovered as bits of fluff was all over it. The fluff would walk through the house too and get stuck on clothes.
The cushion is a standard cushion size and the pattern is lovely with flowers and leaves on it. It isn't all that comfortable really though and it looks a little odd just having the one.
I am disappointed with this, I now have taken the throw off the sofa as I don't like how much is sheds fluff so it is sitting redundant under the stairs whilst I try and think if I can find another use for it... this is really disappointing as it would look nice if it just kept it's fluff to itself and was bigger!
I won't be recommending this sadly.
WHAT IS IT?
A cushion and throw set from Sainsbury's. Mine is the teal colour but they are available in green and red.
The solid teal throw measures about 150cm x 150cm. It has got a fringe on two opposite edges and is a thin woven style. It has got a leafy pattern woven into it and looks very good when I lay it across the back of my large armchair.
The cushion is off white and has got a leafy floral design on both sides. The teal colour is lighter than on the throw and the cushion is not stuffed very well so is very thin and not comfortable to put behind my back when I am sitting down.
WHAT I THINK
This set only cost me £10 but that was when it was on special offer. I wouldn't pay more than that because the throw is very thin and the cushion is not very good quality. Both items can be washed in the washing machine but when I did this with the throw the colour faded quite badly and the fringe became all tangled. I think the cushion would get very flat if you washed that and the cover is not removable so it is only suitable for surface washing.
The throw is very disappointing because it is so thin and not soft at all, it's scratchy against my skin and is not a throw that I would like to cover myself up with when it's cold. The fringes started getting tangled up as soon as I used it once and after it had been washed the fabric went very thin in places and the colour was patchy.
I got this set to give to a friend but I kept it for myself after I found something better for her. I'm very glad I didn't give it to her because it is such poor quality that I would have been embarrassed, it comes with a ribbon holding the throw and cushion together and I think the ribbon is the best part of the set. I use the ribbon in my daughters hair and it is a beautiful emerald green colour and very strong.
