Real Wool!Maybe it has been this way for a long time and I'm just noticing it now, but it seems like EVERYTHING is synthetic. Plastic, basically. Although IKEA offers the usual acrylic throws, I am so happy that you can still find natural materials like wool and cotton at reasonable IKEA prices. I'm a texture person - I don't like the feel of fake, plastic-y things against my skin, no matter how soft and fluffy they are. Those footie pajamas of the late 1970s were torture. And when you wash synthetic materials in the washing machine, little bits of it wind up in the water system and in the general environment. Anyway, I'll get off my soap box. It's a cozy, warm, soft, loosely woven, neutral blanket that is made out of a real, natural, insulating material. You can hardly say that about anything anymore, so for that it gets 5 stars in my book.
A lightweight, decorative wool blanket that keeps you warm. Wool is stain-repellent, durable and provides good insulation. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/images/products/vassad-throw-gray__0528453_PE645799_S4.JPGVÄSSAD Throw, grayhttp://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20382159/203.821.59IKEA$39.99
