This colors of this rug are much more vibrant in person. The rug is very thick and laid down beautiful. It sheds when vaccuuming the first few times but that is to be expected because it is wool. I was a little hesitant because of the rust color in the carpet but the rust does not dominate the rug. The reds are deep claret and the colors blend nicely together.
This has been a very good durable rug. I bought it to replace a white shag rug that was taking a beating from my husband walking on it all the time with his shoes on. This rug is very soft and hides all dirt. It does shed some, but I expected this since its 100% wool. For best results, vacuum it a couple times a week using a vaccum head without a beater/brush on the bottom....I use a *** .
I received it yesterday and was so impressed at how much nicer it was in person than looking at a screen. I have never been an "online shopper", but I have to say I have two large items I would never have considered buying on line that I have gotten from Overstock this year and both have been absolutely spot on as to description, color, quality and ratings. Thank you!
First thing I noticed unrolling the rug was the rich color. Excellent backing material and perfect edges feel of quality. My wife and I debated what size, color, design and style rug for our new home that had previously had a Spanish style decor, but we have gone a different direction and the rug certainly adds everything we wanted. Wool rugs shed. It's a fact. This wool rug sheds. If you want a 'shedless' rug, get something else. We use a Dyson band vacuum and it does an excellent job. Our home now has a warm floor accent that put a special touch in the decor. You cannot get the color or feel of this rug with nylon or other artificial material, nor can you get the permanence of color and longevity of wool any place else.
The rug looks great seems to be put together well, the colors are a little muted versus the picture. Vacuum the rug before putting anything on it, did this, filled vacuum 3 times and was still getting particles of fiber. All in all very nice.
