First, let me say that I have the Hand-woven Jewel Shag Wool Rug in the dark multi color. That rug has been the biggest hit ever with its 2 inch chunks of marshmallow fluff. This rug only recently came on to overstock or I would have ordered it first. This rug is NOT as high quality as the Jewel Shag Wool product. This is exactly like the rugs found at ***. or ***, only difference, about $1000! This is a perfect sage green. I have it in a dining room with copper ceilings/wood beams and patina walls. Sure, food crumbs that fall are lost forever in the fluff below, but one of the dogs is sure to find those so I'm not worried. The felt shag is one inch thick and high. It will shed so you have to understand that it's the nature of the product and be a consistant vacuumer. What luxury for the price. NO ONE has a price like this--not even **** people selling similar products used.
