I saw these throws at Barneys ages ago and thought--WOW this is the best tassel I have ever seen! Yummy, thick and in great colors, these are the throws you want in your life forever. I was so pleased when I came across the source, Susan Chalom. They will transform your bed with color, and when a duvet is too heavy mohair is a great temperature adjuster.
