This rug is a very high quality and nice and thick. The carpet sheds like crazy, but all wool rugs do that at first. The only thing to note about this rug is that the colors are off. They are much more muted than in the picture. I have bought several rugs online and usually the colors are pretty close with some variations due to your computer settings. These are not in anyway bright colors. The yellows are really a tan, the dark color (looks almost black excluding the checks which are black) is really an olive green, and the green color is really a pale green, etc. All that said, the pattern is lovely and the rug feels great. The colors do work but I was looking for something brighter.
Rug was very high quality. The only thing I am disappointed with is the color. I expected more vibrant colors. Colors were very dull. Greens were more light green than olive, Golds were more yellow than gold etc. The quality is very good. You would pay twice the price anywhere else.
