I bought this rug after reading the many positive reviews on all the "Cozy Solid Ivory" rugs on Overstock up through this size (note: I noticed the item numbers are related for all the rugs up to the 8.5'x12' rugs, but the poorly-reviewed 9.5'x13' rug is a very different item number, which may explain the difference - I ordered the 8.5x12 to be on the safe side and am glad I did). Other positive reviews are spot-on. The rug is so, so plush and soft without being too shaggy (fibers are about 1.25" long) and you can't feel the backing through the rug like so many cheaper shag rugs. The rug is made up of two thicknesses of same-colored warm ivory fiber, which adds some additional texture (the skinnier fibers are also twisted tighter which adds to this effect), and I hope will hide dirt. The rug smells like polypropylene rugs do the first day or two, but the smell is dissipating quickly. Having a dog and kids, I was worried this rug wouldn't be able to be vacuumed, but my Dyson handles it very well (no shedding!), and even my Roomba seems to do okay, though it occasionally hiccups when trying to climb up onto the rug. It adds a nice design element to my old home and sets off my darker leather furniture, while also making the living room look so much more inviting, bright, and comfortable. Couldn't be happier.

This is a great buy. This rug is super soft and looks very high quality -- and the price is really incredible. I didn't even place a matt under it (I didn't think it was necessary). Don't be afraid to buy it. It's a go!

I had my eye on this rug for a while and finally decided to go for it. I am so happy I did! It really makes my bedroom look complete. It's really nice to step out of bed onto this soft fluffy rug in the morning. Even my husband commented how much he likes it! The color is not as white as picture though. I'd have preferred more white ivory and this is definitely a cream color but it still looks okay. Another great quality bargain from O.Co!

We just built our dream home and I'm very picky about what goes into it, design wise. I knew I wanted a shag carpet for the family room and after much deliberation, I chose this one - what a huge score! It's beautiful, feels like wool, looks fantastic and arrived in just a few days and oh, the price was amazing! I highly recommend this rug to anyone who is on the fence. It's plush, doesn't shed, had a funny smell for about an hour but is totally gone now. I love it and unfortunately, my dogs love it too!
The quality of this rug is excellent compared to other rugs in the same price range. It's very soft and plush and the ivory color works perfectly in my living room. The added bonus is no shedding like many other shag rugs.
Added wood floors to family room but still wanted the comfort of carpet. This rug did the trick. It is soft and beautiful and for the price, you can't beat it. Everyone wants to lay on the rug instead of sitting on the couch since it so soft and comfortable. Great find and purchase!!
Hello ebjo, this rug does have a light shed, if you keep it vacuumed for the first few weeks regularly then it shouldn't shed to bad. Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 15, 2014
I didn't really notice ANY shedding at all, and I've gone through two of these. They're super soft and cute, but I finally had to get rid of it though because my dogs kept thinking it was grass :)myaccount1 on Aug 16, 2014
I've not really noticed and shedding, except perhaps on first vacuum. It is located in a guest room. I moved it from CA to WA and have owned it over a year with no complaints about allergies.brisbanemom04 on Aug 27, 2014
Hello apbmc, This rug is beautiful! We recommend you vacuum your shag rugs at least once a week. Most manufacturers recommend disabling beater bars and brush bars when vacuuming shag rugs. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 8, 2014
I'm able to vacuum it with my dyson animal (life changing vacuum by the way). It takes a little more effort than with my flat rugs, but I haven't had a problem so far.smt6810 on Apr 9, 2014
