    • Dissapointed

      While the rug in the picture appears lush and tight, the one I recieved is skimpy and sheds large clumps, I'm not sure it will last the way it is shedding. I put it over a pad on a wood floor and there is no cushining at all. Will think twice about ording on line again.

    • Wool Rug

      I really like the rug. What I would change is thickness of pile - it is a little sparse. And I question how to clean and vacuum it since the pile is so long I'm afraid it would get tangled up in traditional devices. Otherwise it is a nice accent to our family room.

    • It looks pretty nappy

      In person this looks like a dead animal. I really wanted it to look like the website photos. I can't really "comb" it because it sheds really really bad. I find fuzz balls from it everywhere. I feel like I wasted money on this.

    • Dissapointing

      This arrived in a small package and I instantly knew it was not going to be what I expected. Its paper thin and looks like old matted wool. I will be returning this and purchasing one elsewhere.

    • Ya Baby

      I have nothing to compare this to in terms of quality. All i can say, the price seemed fair, it looks great but does shed a bit. I'm not sure if shedding is a common symptom of this type of rug?

    • Not what I expected

      When rug arrived in a plastic bag I knew It was not for us. I had expected a more constructed rug that would arrive in a roll and have a lasting shape not a lightweight throw rug type that could be folded up. Overstock was very nice and handled the return promptly. For my needs I needed more information, in the description, about the construction of the backing and needed a more substantial rug. I hesitated to give it a poor rating as I am sure if someone was looking for that particular type of rug this would have fit their needs...for our requirements it was poor. I guess I was not educated on exactly what "Flokati" was.

    • Folkati

      This rug is paper thin..not at all like the picture, it has no backing, it is 8x9, very over priced. Very, very disappointed.

    • Excellent value, beautiful rug!

      5-stars *at this price point*. Of course there are thicker flokatis but you'll pay for those. As others have noted, the natural color is a yellow-white, not a white-white or a brown-white. It's just the color of flokati wool. I have it in a room with warm oak flooring, espresso color furniture, and other dark accents like browns and blacks. It sets off the room beautifully, and with darker colors around it it appears just creamy white. If you know flokati you know it's not a carpet. This is a woven throw so absolutely, without a doubt, buy the Supreme Dual Felted rug pad for it. The one with the natural rubber on one side and the synthetic on the other (rubber side down for wood floors). Combined with the pad, the rug feels very luxurious under bare feet. As for vacuuming/cleaning: Yup, it sheds. And taking an 8x10 rug outside to shake it out isn't an option. I do vacuum it but *stay away from the edges* or you'll eat the rug. Just be smart and careful about it. The shedding fibers fill a vacuum up fast so just take note. However I have noticed over time that the shedding is rapidly decreasing. I don't notice those poofs of fiber around the room any more. And frankly if you have pets in the house it's just not a big thing :o All in all, this rug is a beauty, an incredible value for the price, and is a centerpiece that brightens up a blah room.

    • Hand-woven Alexa Standard Flokati Wool Shag Rug

      I ordered the Flokati Wool Shag rug for my husband's study/den. It promptly arrived! When we opened the rug it was a beautiful off-white truly shag-type rug. I didn't expect it to be so thin in texture. It is not a thick, luxurious rug. But if you're looking for something that's stylish, that's chic and is impressive to look at, the Flokati is your rug.

    • Flokati Rug in Ivory

      The the wool rug. This rug was purchased after we replaced our flooring with a dark acacia wood floor. Needed the ivory shag to brighten and lighten the floor. We have brown leather sofas and the contrast is stunning. We were worried about "shag" as we just ripped up our shag rug to change to wood. But this is like no other. It's more like a fluffy cloud. We purchased a good quality pad to go under the rug. Loved the rug online, love it in our home. Empty nesters with occasional grandchildren visits, the kids love the rug. I found the inexpensive Hoover Nano vacuum works well with the rug. Just change the vacuum to suction with no beater bar and it does a splendid job. We really love it and are pleased with our purchase.
