This rug purchase is the fulfillment of a very long search for the right size, color, price and quality. When I ordered I received the incorrect item the first time which was a major pain because this large size rug is a beast to package for return. The replacement is just perfect... but as time has progressed I'm getting a little anxious about it. The rug's weave is short loops and a few of the loops are pulling above the nap. I'm not sure what is causing this. I love this rug. It is a true periwinkle blue as I had hoped. All in all this rug wonderful.
