Ok, I have mixed emotions about this rug...first off it looks just as pretty as the picture. However, it's been two months and this rug is still shedding! I can't sit in my living room without looking like I own 5 dogs. I have to vacuum every day and it still fills up the bag twice! Also, since it sheds so much, the rug is starting to look worn. And when it arrived it was a bit dirty and had some dark spots that I had to spot clean.
This rug is very well made , thick and luxurious . It weighs almost 100 lb so it is very solid. Just so you note- the color is not a true navy blue. It is a lighter blue acually almost a Carolina blue. It is beautiful regardless but the coloring is misleading. Other than that it is excellent quality and looks amazing in my house.
Some people said on reviews that is was shedding everywhere. Hello! Its wool. It did shed for the first week, but vacumed nicely and its beautiful. Came easy to lay down. Layed flat right away even after being rolled and folded in half. Many compliments. The navy is bold and makes a statement. Goes great with brown leather. Rich looking. Soft!
This rug has worked wonders to muffle sound in our upstairs apartment. It is great to walk on and looks amazing. The big issue is the amount it sheds! Every time I vacuumed it, The vacuum needed to be emptied multiple times. The shed fibers get into clothes, they itch and wreak havoc on allergies. Although this is a beautiful, high quality rug, I would not recommend it for a sleeping or high traffic area.
LOVE this rug! this rug is super thick which i wanted and the color is great. the blue is more of a washed out navy with a cream trim.the cream trim is a much softer feel and is raised slightly higher then the blue and the blue is a little rough. i havent had any real issues with shedding which was my main concern since its tufted wool and not knotted. the only thing i noticed is that the cream trim sheds slightly on the blue which can be a little annoying since it makes it look a little dirty with fuzz but nothing a vac. cant fix. i also purchased this with the rug pad from overstock as well! so happy with my purchase!
