The rug is pretty and arrived quickly after purchase, but I was dusting and mopping the floors twice a day and could not understand where the heck the dust balls were coming from. Finally I realized it is the rug!! So the wool gets on my socks and basically is transferred all over the house. If I could do it over again I would not buy this rug.
I was thrilled to find a shag rug with a great price and had high expectations after reading the previous reviews. When I opened the box I was thoroughly disappointed. I was hoping for a softer wool, but it felt like someone bleached bigfoot, skinned him, and made a rug. It sheds terribly and I am in the process of returning the rug. This is also the first time I've ordered something from overstock without getting any type of return label, which is incredibly inconvient. Very disappointed.

This rug is very soft and thick - it's great quality! I do have one major complaint though...I was sent two of these rugs and both of them were obviously used. I ordered the natural color, and at first was sent a blue rug. It came tightly packaged and was brand new. I had to send it back though because it was the wrong color. As always, O.com's customer service was great. I was shipped a new rug in about a week, but this time it came shoved in a box. It was the correct color, but there was dog hair all over the rug, the sticker was torn off the box, it wasn't tightly packaged...it was awful. I contacted customer service and they apologized, and said they'd send me a new rug. Well, I just got my rug last night, and again, it came shoved in a box, there was no sticker on the back, it was DIRTY.... needless to say I was frustrated. I contacted customer service again and they said that they were sold out of the rug - that's probably why I kept getting used rugs. I ended up trying to clean this rug (which was hard because it's thick wool so you can't exactly just vaccum it...I had to literally pick things out of it), but I got it clean for the most part. I'm very happy with the quality of the rug, just frustrated with being sent two used items. If you're getting this rug in another color, hopefully they'll have new, unused rugs to send you!

Ew! I was expecting this wonderfully fluffy rug as it appeared to be in the description. WRONG! This rug is like an itchy old wool sweater. I ordered the Ruby Red rug and received a 70's Burnt Orange/ Brown colored rug. I was hoping for a rich luxurious rug and received something completely different! I am upset that I have to pay to return this when it was clearly false advertising!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Ruby Red was more like Burnt Orange Brown.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not soft at all, scratch material.

It's not "top quality", but I was not expecting that for the price I paid. I also knew (because I have been shopping for a flokati rug for some time) that the rug isn't super soft...it's more like a raw cotton feel. The weave isn't dense as it would be in a premium rug, but I am well pleased with the size and quality for the value. On the floor, it looks quite nice and feels good under the feet. Unless you have your hands in it, the "not so dense" weave isn't obvious. I am pleased with my rug and would buy it again.
I buy products from Overstock every few months and this may be my first or second ever return. As soon as I opened the package, you can tell just from looking at the rug - and not even touching it - that it had to be returned. I didn't read the other reviews before I bought it and laughed when I read another review that said 'it was like someone shaved BigFoot and glued it to a rug'. That's exactly what it looks like - a dirty Chewy Chewbaca. While this rug doesn't appear dirty, it feels like an old dirty mop after it's dried. No joke. If you rubbed your face along it, you'd probably bleed. I'm not sure how the positive reviews got in here, they must be the manufacturer's family and friends. Now it's going to cost me $10 to return this eye sore. Please heed my advice and save yourself the return fee. The pictures make them look all warm and snuggly, but Big Foot needs his fur back. And that's where mine is going.

This is a super soft, thick rug that looks great until it gathers dust or things my children drop. It is not fun to vacuum, It's like thick gorilla fur and getting stuff out of the depths of it is difficult. Better to take it outside and beat it to clean it.
the salt and pepper looks more charcoal gray in the pictures. this is really deceiving. It's just black and white yarn randomly woven throughout the rug. Definitely more of a zebra feel, than an overall homogeneous color like is represented in the photo. Also, upon receipt, the rug is very flat. it takes a good bit of raking to get the fluffy pile you see in the picture. It's is a good quality material and craftsmanship and is made to last a long time if well cared for. Not recommended if you have a long haired dog or cat. I have both. This would be impossible to keep clean with all the fur they shed.
I love this flokati rug, it's bigger than I expected, and like all flokati's it vacuums up nicely -- nice to feel under my feet when I get up in the middle of the night to head to the restroom; big white flokati is on the main circumference of my bedroom, but otherwise had had only cold, old tile. This pink with the white of my own would please even a 4-year-old little girl in her bedroom, but I just love the pastels, and can't get over pink. I think it's worth the price, and even when it fades with age it'll be pretty if I take care of it. It's a big plus to the bedroom. :)
Do not get this product. It just looks good, but is a very poor quality. It sheeds like crazy and you will have wool all over your house. The return policy is very unfriendly also. After 30 days you get partial refund, but the kicker is you don't know how much you get back until you send the item back and the warehouse inspects it.
I love this rug. I have read all of the previous reviews about how it is not thick and sheds all over. I will admit it does shed a little but it is well worth the shed. I brushed mine as soon as I received it and it is absolutely beautiful. A great addition to my master bathroom. Looks great on my hardwood floors.
Well, we just bought a house and this 3x5 area rug seemed just the thing...our cat loves curling up on it. It fit the space next to the bed nicely. We have had the rug about 7 weeks. When I came home from work today, my cat had gotten sick on the rug. I read it can be washed in the washing machine (do not put it in the dryer though)...when we took it out of the wash to air dry, it looks like there are numerous dead bug carcasses....yuck! The color we bought is the cream color and we are grossed out that we could not see these bugs! Would not have known they were there. Recommendation: it's a pretty rug. If you want to buy it, wash it with Woolite, on gentle, FIRST, air dry, shake it out, comb it as recommended in the care of flokati rugs, then put it out for use. OR, have it professionally cleaned.
It is the real deal..I have seen others with a hard backing..but ..this has a soft backing...where you can actually see how the wool was stitched! No crunchy Vinyl back...!..And YES! wool! No synthetic! I wanted this small one to use as a throw over a white sofa..It is GREAT! It is made in Greece and I recommend this NULoom brand. It does have a TINY bit of shedding..but nothing horrible.I will machine wash It on delicate..and the shedding will be gone. It really was minimal..so don't think you will have a small animals worth on your floor. This size was a great value.The larger sizes are a bit more..but worth it! The color is a creamy beautiful off white. LOVE IT!
I bought this rug intending to use it for photography. When the rug arrived it was filthy and very obviously used! It was dirty, scratchy, and ugly! I immediately sent it back and ordered from a different company. I would not recommend this rug to an enemy!
