Berkshire Throws - shedding terribly

Anyone else experience terrible shedding from new Berkshire throws/blankets this holiday season?  Have never had this problem before, washed prior to using, and it will just not stop shedding all over the place - going back.  I have many from previous years and never had this problem.

@just wonder    Probably cheapened quality, just like everything else.  The Q clothing has gotten so bad, the newer fabrics are unrecognizable from my older, higher quality pieces.

I agree, not much quality anymore, and problems with  shipping and slow returns.

Bought - for first time - 2 "B" throws.    DV and vendor harped about how fuzzy and warm they were.

HA HA HA.............I fell for it  - they were fluffy alright - but warm?    So thin your finger could go through the material.

One to goodwill - 2nd 'just disappeared'....Junk

The Berkshire VelvetSoft throws I have are 2+ yrs old & they're cozy & warm. The only one that was a shedding mess was the Fluffie & that went into the 🗑. Sorry you were disappointed @just wonder, Thanks for sharing.

@ValuSkr    You can bet Sharon Hanby-Robie knows and she should be extremely embarrassed.

 

I hope those of you receiving garbage are writing reviews.

I purchased 

H227118 Home Reflections Fair Isle 60"x80" Throw w/ Sherpa Rev. It is so soft and warm with no shedding. Purchased a second one in the  soft grey color (and the print is subtle) for the guest bedroom.

@just wonder Is that the one with the trees?  I'd have been better off getting an angora cat!  

 

My husband loves it and I don't know how I'm going to get it away from him.  But it is thin and cheap and ratty.
