Product description neglected to note that there is a small amount of viscose in this rug - to duplicate visual appearance of silk/wool rugs. Very nice soft color. Superior price for quality. Shipping exceptional, arrived within one week. Does shed profusely as prior reviews stated, am assuming this will abate.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not light blue, medallions more discreet than photo.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Really nice rug, however, product description fails to note that there is some viscose (duplicates silk). I went to the Safavieh showroom before purchasing to look at it and the salesman told me that it is NOT 100% wool -- maybe 10 to 15% viscose to add "texture and contrast" to the surface. Other reviewers were correct in noting that it does shed quite significantly. Am assuming this will be temporary.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fairly good.
- Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
