All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
the color is listed as IVORY but the photo shows pure snowey white. I would call the color mainly ivory & cream with a LOT of very yellowed areas.
if it matters to you, this rug is comprised of FOUR hides stitched together.
I was not at all happy with the color and returned it.
I did find an exceptional replacement by the same exact manufacturer in a larger (4x6) size at a better price on a different website.
search around and compare.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? patches of yellow. NOT snowey white like the photo!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. super soft but tufts fell off edges
How accurate was the on site description of the product? reasonably accurate.
I have ordered 2 of the 2x6, and even though they are not a true white ,which I would prefer, I love the lush feel of the thick, soft rug. this 4x6 is actually 6"smaller on length and width., and much thinner. this particular sheep didn't get the growth hormones that my 2x6 rugs did.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the site makes it look white, when they are actually cream
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was unhappy with the size and thickness

So many people rated this product highly. One person said they received a fake. Well, I should have listened to that voice in the wind because mine is obviously a fake despite the "Authentic from New Zealand" tag. Switzerland and have a few real ones from there so I know the difference. Dear positive reviewers, I am really annoyed at you and suspect you are the seller. It was made in China - so there you have it. Dear positive reviewers, I am really annoyed at you and suspect you are the seller. That said it is nice looking. Unlike other reviews mine was more white than yellow. Because it is a fake it is overpriced which is why I said I would not recommend it to a friend. If it was advertised at fake and a lower price I would recommend it. I decided instead of dealing with the trouble of returning it I will keep it. I won't put it in the family room where originally intended. Instead I'll keep it in the playroom because it is really soft. It is. It is soft and pretty - but not real which is just wrong since it was advertised as so. BTW one reviewer said hers smelled when she opened it. Mine did a bit too but the smell went away after a few minutes after being out of the packaging.
We love this rug, it is so soft and looks great with our furniture. Originally we were going to get the smaller one (2 x 6 I think, maybe 3 x 6) but am really glad we went for this size. It is not actually 4 x 6 so any smaller would have been way too small. Also, the color is not a true white, it's much more yellow than the picture implies. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great
Very fluffy. Feels real, I think. Great on bare feet! It looks great in my bedroom. I have very dark wood floors. Looks very luxe. I saw one at a major Swedish retailer that was smaller, but more expensive.
I read all the reviews for this one before I bought it, and I think they're true. It's more ivory than super white as pictured, and it's definitely smaller than it looks in the picture, too. It's roughly 4x6 I would say, but on the smaller side of that. The rug is super soft and the padding underneath it makes it delightful to step on. As soon as I took it out of the package, I just rubbed my feet all through it. Feels really nice. I bought it for underneath my favorite reading chair, and now I want one for beside my bed, too. If you're looking for a rug to take up major area space, this is not the rug for you. This is more for accents near places where you'd like something really comfortable for your feet.
I would love to purchase this rug, however it looks like it may be very difficult to keep clean or costly when needed to be cleaned. Does anyone know if it needs professional cleaning or can it be machine washed on a gentle cycle? I know spot cleaning is always necessary so if you have any recommendations for that as well, it would be greatly appreciated :) Thank you so much!hisbutterfly12 on Mar 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Remove dust by brushing up the wool pile with a wire brush, shaking out the skin and vacuuming with an attachment.
Put the rug in your washing machine and use a non-enzyme shampoo made specifically for washable sheepskin items. Pre-soak the rug in the shampoo for 20 minutes if you have stubborn stains or dirt.
Waiting for Water
Safe Water Kiosk in Kenya supplies orphanage with clean water. Watch!
Wash on gentle cycle using lukewarm water that does not exceed 100 degrees F.
Add a high-quality wool conditioner to the final rinse to soften the leather and condition the wool. Rinse once more and spin dry.
Lay the rug flat and dry it away from heat. Gently flex and massage the skin side while the rug dries to soften it.
Brush the dried rug again to restore the wool pile.
