This is a beautiful, thick, relatively soft rug. The photo is not true to the color, however. It's a gray/periwinkle. Be warned that the fibers pull up very easily. I can only think to compare it to wearing a chunky, hand knit sweater and a charm bracelet at the same time. Things will catch regularly - pet claws, high heels, vacuums, etc. I have to push the knots back into the carpet weekly or it looks quite unkempt.
