I have had the rug for two weeks and it is lovely. It looks much more expensive than the price . It has long thick strands of felted wool and is a natural off white color. Very soft and thick. It does shed little puffs of wool, but I expected that because of the other reviews. You definitely cannot use an abrasive vacuum cleaner on this rug , you have to use something with very little suction and no beater bar. This rug is delicate and the strands will separate, causing the rug to become fuzzy. It has to be spot cleaned so it is not the rug for an active space . Although I haven't had it long it looks like it could become very dirty , very quickly. All in all I am very pleased with it . It really works for me!Read More
The Surya brand rug I received was exactly the same as the ~$4000 felted wool rugs I saw at our local rug store, which is exactly what I wanted. It has no vinyl backing, and is 100% felted wool. It has no chemical odor, but does smell like wet wool if you have to spot clean it, or if it gets wet. Our dog had a serious accident on this rug and I was able to clean it thoroughly, even though it is a natural colored rug. (I did "trim" a couple of the felts, and you can't see the difference). This rug probably ended up at overstock because a couple of the felts were not finished to the same length. This rug sheds a lot. I have had it for almost a year, and pieces of wool still come off in tumbleweed type balls, and if the baby crawls across it with dark pants on, he is covered in fine wool lint. So if shedding is a dealbreaker for you, this rug is not for you. Other than the shedding, I love this rug. It's warm, fluffy, and made of natural materials. I put it in our son's nursery. I hope it stops shedding someday, but until then, I'll just deal with it, because it's otherwise perfect for our needs.Read More
It's a very plus rug, with a different style to the typical shag rugs (because of the thick pile). It's lovely to look at. I don't think it is as bright as the picture - more light beige, but still a great match for me. Feels really nice on the feet. Its nice to have natural fibers. I'll see how it stands the test of time.Read More
Rug is great- thick, soft, great quality. It does have one drawback- the natural wool smell when opening the packaging was overpowering. Although it has diminished it is still there after two weeks. If this can't be worked out I will understand why a great quality rug is priced so well!Read More
This area rug is made by Surya which is one of the premium manufacturers (google it) chosen by many interior decorators.... Im so glad purchased this 8x10.6 it totally completes my open style living room tying in everything the color is a neutral white/ivory and the "popcorn" look effect is a conversation starter!! The felted 100% NZ wool is starting to pelt which is natural but hopefully it will stop once it breaks in other than that I can't stop praising how fantastic it is!!!Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello calderas15, I'm sorry for the frustration we may have caused you. Sometimes it takes a little time for all the excess fuzz to come off. I would just shake it out and vacuum e it with the vacuum hose. Do you have a room with an open window you could let the rug air out in? I hope this helps. Have a great day!
I was wondering where this rug was made? Also, could you specify if this one or the Nimbus 2D is felted wool? Both materials listed read felted wool; however, in this Q&A overstock customer care states that one is not. Thanks for your help!
Hello nabom0422! This lovely rug is made with 100% New Zealand Felted Wool. It is also manufactured in India. Thanks for shopping with us! -Amanda P
Is there any other material used in this rug besides wool? Is there a layer underneath that binds the rug? Was the wool treated with any substance? Thank you!
This rug is 100 percent wool. Other than being washed after the wool has been dyed, it has not been treated with any other substances. As for another layer, the backing on this rug is a cotton scrim.
What is the difference between the Nimbus wool felted area rug and the Jefferson wool felted rug? Is one a tighter weave?
Both use New Zealand wool, one is felted the other not. Felting is a processing technique for wool which yields a non-woven fabric of unusual sturdiness, water resistance, and wind resistance.
How to Size Your Room For an Area Rug
A rug in the right size can complement the whole room, accent furnishings, bring life to a dull room, or make a subtle statement. However, if it's too big or too small, it may leave the impression of an unfinished or poorly decorated room. Before you start shopping for area rugs, you'll want to size the room. This guide will help you to select the right size rug in any room.
