Let's start off with the positives: First off, I never thought I'd call a pillow sexy, but that's what this is. It also matches perfectly with the Millagro Pillow my wife and I got (also alpaca). The weave is meticulous and elaborate, you can tell that this is a well made blanket. It's essentially made to last a good long while. *One thing with alpaca is that it does shed a bit and ahere to synthetics... ladies, that means your spandex leggings. Also polyester shirts and such. Negative: This is the only reason why I'm giving this four stars. It's not thick enough. I understand that Alpaca is incredibly good at holding heat, but the problem is that the blanket is thin, so when you live in a cooler house (me) putting this thing on can be slightly uncomfortable at first. It's not as warm as your fake, garbage polyester blankets you find at Wally-mart, but give it about five minutes or so and it's perfect. *Suggestion - Offer an option where you allow buyers to get a thicker version of this blanket for a premium price ($100 or $150 more). Not joking, I would buy it! That's it, as long as you don't mind it being a little thin it's a borderline perfect throw!

This throw is absolutely beautiful! It definitely is the center piece of the bedroom. The touch of it is super soft and the design is intricate and aesthetically-pleasing. It’s double-sided woven, which gives a nice, visual contrast. The weight is perfect, thicker than some of the other Citizenry throws, and it seems durable with the only drawback being that for some people, it can be noticably itchy on your skin if worn.
This blanket is indeed soft and lovely, but the weave is so loose that threads are constantly pulling out. If it snags on anything at all--a fingernail, a button, a cat claw--the weave warps. I wanted this blanket to be more functional than it is for almost $300.
Hi Emily, Thanks so much for reaching out about your experience with the Tesoro Alpaca Throw. This blanket is handcrafted by our artisan partners in Peru using 100% baby alpaca fiber, which may snag on sharp objects (much like a sweater). One trick I'd recommend is gently pulling the weave taut in the opposite direction of the snag to add tension back into the pulled fibers. If that doesn't resolve the issue, or if you'd prefer to exchange your throw, we're more than happy to help. Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll make things right. Best, - The Citizenry Team
