This rug is very scratchy and not at all what I expected from the picture. The colors are much duller in real life. It is not a wool rug either. It contains only 35% wool and 65% Jute. I would say it is a jute rug. It is woven and very thin. Not at all something I want a baby or my bare feet to touch. I am sending it back. It would easily jumble up on the floor as soon as you walk over it. There is no backing or padding. Very disappointed.
