I bought this flokati for a wooden floor in my den and when i got it, it exceeded my expectations. This is so soft and feels good under the bare foot. The description is accurate as on-site and the color on-site is accurate. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get a flokati at a decent price. Nothing negative to say about this flokati.

I did a lot of research on this rug before buying it at Overstock. I read A LOT of reviews. The color was not an ugly yellow! It was a natural color that was just a little off white...which was perfect for me. The rug is light weight which also was what I was looking for. Because I have it under a pretty big coffee table it does not move around on my tile floors however I would recommend getting something underneath if you have it in the middle of the floor as it does slide. The only thing I was concerned about was that it arrived in a box! yikes I thought, and was not happy about that, but when I got it out of the box, I did what was suggested and gave it a really good shake, brushed it out and took off the excess fibers and it now looks great! It does shed a bit but not as much as I feel people say it does...I had a friend with a black shirt on that laid on it the first night I got it and he hardly had anything on his shirt...I really LOVE this rug and so worth the price!! Just adds a really beautiful touch to the living room!

Got a bit freaked out about other reviews complaining about the quality and color of the rug and almost canceled- thank god it already shipped!! I absolutely love it!!! No it isn't a $1500 *** rug, as they are $1500. I paid $*** for the 6' x 9' and it was a total steal for the size and quality. I read up online about how to care for the rug which is super important. When it comes you give it a proper shake out- like shake it a lot almost beating it. I combed it with a dog brush, the kid for a golden retriever. Its amazing in my Brooklyn living room beautiful an lush my 3 year old son loves it. I also bought a proper thick felt carpet pad to put underneath it and its super cozy to sit on the floor now. The color isn't yellow its off white/cream or natural as I expected. Love love love!!!!
I love this rug! It takes my living room to a whole new level. You should definitely get a rug pad or it will slide around. I'd suggest the actual pad, not the no-slip pads, if you want to lay on the rug comfortably on wood floors since the rug is plush but not necessarily thick. It does require some work to care for it so you should also invest in a dog brush (the bristle brush, not the metal brush) to smooth it out and prevent clumping. As always, Overstock provided a great product at a great price!

I researched Flokati rugs for eons before deciding to bite the bullet with this one, and I'm so happy that I did! I took the advice of previous reviewers and used a rubber Kong dog brush to get rid of excess strands and fluff up the wool. I also hung it up and let it air out for a couple of days, intermittently spraying it with Febreeze to get rid of the sheepy smell. When I was finally ready to lay it down, my boyfriend and I shook it out really well outside for a good five minutes. That process worked perfectly, and I haven't had any problems with shedding other than the ocassional strand my socks attract. It's a beautifully natural off-white color, incredibly soft and comfortable under your feet, and five months later, I still haven't had to re-fluff it. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
I bought this despite seeing a review that the product actually looked yellow when they received it. I figured maybe that person just got a bad one. Well, mine turned out to be yellow as all. An ugly yellow color. It definitely doesn't look anything like the picture. It doesn't even feel good either. In the picture it looks soft, but it was actually quite rough. I know that a picture isn't a good indication for how something will feel in real life, but I was hoping for better quality. I have returned my rug.

I had been looking for a rug for my bedroom exactly like this for a VERY long time, and had a very hard time finding one in my price range. I ordered this one (6x9) and it was absolutely perfect! The material is incredibly soft, luxurious, and very well made. I was worried that it might be too small for my large bedroom, but it's actually a lot bigger than I thought! I couldn't have asked for a better rug, especially for this price! It is the centerpiece of my bedroom, and my favorite part of it. I'm so happy with the outcome! If you're looking for a wool rug like this, you've found it here!

This is a decent rug, is has gotten compliments, It's not incredibly soft, but it isn't rough either.,and it looks nice if you don't inspect it too closely. But the weave is a little thin and you can see through to the base in several areas (or any place the shag gets parted), and the rug sheds a mind boggling amount. I read reviews saying it shed before purchasing, but thought if i followed previously read advise about brushing it out with a dog hair brush initially that it wouldn't last forever. I brushed a whole box filled of fluff out of the rug initially, and it continued to shed daily. I've brushed it out several times since and am always getting large clumps coming out. I live alone, and if i sweep and vacuum and leave my house clean when i go away for a few days, I come back and fluffs of this carpet will have found their way around my house. I don't know how this carpet does it, but it makes my house really look like i've got a shedding pet in the house. I had been so excited to find this natural wool rug, but after living with it for almost a year I do wish I had not purchased this rug.
I bought the 6' X 9'...nice and thick with individual yarn lengths easily 4" or more...I got the "natural gray" color which is a warm gray--very easy on the eye and very welcoming as you enter the room.....you will find that it's certainly priced right if you checked other merchants. After I put this one in the room I went back online and bought a 3' X 5' to help balance the larger one in the room
The rug arrived fast. However, I was thoroughly displeased with the rug. The rug I received was full of brown hairs, burrs and who knows what else. It even had a weird smell to it. It picked debris out of the rug for 2 days and constantly found more. Unfortunately, had to return.
