The description says this is a wool rug. Most of it is, but the "deco explosions" are actually made of a velvety fabric that are looped in. They stick out in a sort of gross and unflattering way, not at all blended in as part of the natural texture of the rug as the picture seems to show. The decoration is made of longer pieces and look like they would be easily pulled by my dog. Also the color is more of a slate blue, rather than a true baby blue, so a bit grayer than I had thought. The blue part is a nice thick wool, but the texture of the explosions just threw me off and I had to return it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was more of a slate blue than a baby blue
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not very accurate
Love this rug but be forewarned that it isn't for the faint of heart and it sheds like crazy for a while. I knew it would shed because I've purchased some of the blue Soho rugs that look like this (flowers instead of circles). These are lovely, thick, wool rugs with interesting ribbon detail which provides texture and interest.
