I got these rugs in the smaller and bigger sizes a total of four. The color is a lighter blue than pictured. They are really heavy rugs that feel good under your feet, but they do slide around a little on my tile floor. I was really enjoying them and were ready to give them a good to excellent rating until I washed a large and smaller rug. They did shed a little in the washer and the dryer not too bad, but when wet the larger rug is very heavy and some of the loops came out leaving a bald spot. The smaller rug washed up pretty nice. I would not buy the larger rug again too heavy when wet and loops come out, but I might purchase the smaller ones again.
