This rug is beautiful, the picture doesn't show the colors accurately, but I knew that already from ordering another rug from Overstock. Actually, this rug is nicer than the picture, it's more light sage with cranberry details. It's also soft and thick. Here's the problem -- fluff, unending fluff. I just keep vacuuming, it fills up the vacuum tank. If you were to use this rug someplace where people would be sitting on it, everyone would be constantly covered in wool rug fibers. An excellent value for a 9X12 rug, though.
