  • Wool Not! Cotton backing. Not!

    This carpet is not 100% wool. About 30% is an unidentified ribbon material. When my brother bought this carpet 3 years ago it was all wool including the bursts. When I wrote to overstock to discuss this with them I received no communication other than an authorized return label. Not very professional and definitely a misrepresented product. On the other hand most people that have seen it seem to like it.

  • Beautiful Rug

    Love this rug but one negative is the shag strands come out easily. Not sure how long it will last. Time will tell

  • Well worth the money

    Beautiful! Looks just like the picture. I get so many complements on it. I wished my cat didn't like it so well. He likes to scratch on it. That's my only complaint!

  • Beauiful but not quite

    I ordered this rug because of the beautiful blue background. When I unrolled the rug, the background was more of a grayish blue than the turquoise blue that the picture displays. However, its a gorgeous rug but it will not match my decor because the color isn't what I was expecting so I will be sending it back. Just keep in mind that the background of the rug is not turquoise as displayed but if you don't mind the grayish blue hue then it might work for you!

  • falling apart

    I don't normally write reviews but had to for this. It's pretty, and that doesn't last long because all the ribbons start to pull out after you vacuum the first time. I used the floor setting too so the vacuum brush bristles wouldn't snag the ribbons. I have loose threads everywhere and it won't stop shedding!!! I have giant sized blue wool dust bunnies everywhere!!! Worst carpet I have ever bought!

  • Simply Gorgeous

    This rug looked pretty and unique online so I decided to bite the bullet and order such a big and probably difficult to return item without seeing it. I am so glad I took the plunge, it is absolutely beautiful! I was looking to brighten up my living room and this definitely does the job. Looks much more expensive than it was. It is thick, plush and well made. The bursts have a metallic sheen to them that makes them a true focal point.

  • Awesome Rug

    what I liked most was the color combonation was exactly what I wanted. the burst shapes are actually "New Shag" against the very tight medium nap of the background...

    I can't say enough about this rug... It is truly beautiful... It makes such a statement no matter where you will put it... I have it in my foyer, and I get complimented on it every time I open my door... Love it...

  • Not as good as the reviews said

    For the price it is OK, I just received the 5 x 8 and the 3 x 5 yesterday. The color is a fair match to what you see online. The quality is what you would expect for the price. The 5 x 8 rug has a very noticeable open spot where there is no pattern and it is odd looking, all the bursts are bunched over on one side. I am considering returning the product for a replacement. The 3 x 5 came with small black marks on the light blue portion or the rug, almost like someone had a marker in their hand when they were packing the rug this one I will return for a replacement.

Questions & Answers

  • Does this come in a 6' x 9' size?

  • How do you recommend vaccuuming this particular rug with the tufts that can pull out?

    • Vacuuming is the best and easiest way to clean your wool rug and will help extend the life of your wool rug. For the first year or two of owning your wool rug you may notice that excess fuzz ends up all over the rug. This is just loose fibers working their way out and is not a malfunction of the rug. You can vacuum the fuzz up and eventually the rug will cease this “shedding”. Make sure that the beater bar of your vacuum is set high so that it does not agitate the rug too much. Also be sure to make an M with the vacuum to help prevent matting of the rug.
