We bought this rug to go into the nursery for our soon-to-be-born son. I loved the fun letters and pictures, and the colors were great. The letters are actually raised up compared to the background, and the letters are very soft. The background section, on the other hand, is this woven beige wool that is very rough to the touch. It was scratching my feet while sitting on the rug, and it was very uncomfortable. I couldn't imagine placing my newborn with his sensitive skin on this rug because it would scratch him all up! If they had made the whole rug soft like the letters, it would've been fine. But instead the letters are a different texture than the background (creating that 3D effect). Ultimately, we returned the rug.

We LOVE this rug! It completely ties our playroom together! High quality materials were used to make it ( real wool) and you can tell when you walk on it, feels like wool not synthetic. No dangerous synthetic smell either like so many other rugs have. This rug is absolutley beautiful! The colors are great and the letters and designs are actually raised from the gray/taupe background. Spills do not show up easily at all and they can easily be cleaned with a sponge. It does shed a lot at first and that is to be expected. Just vaccuum a few times and you are good. We have goten many compliments on it and best of all, my daughter is in love with it!
