The colors are very subtle, which I like. It is mosly a light mossy green and sage green. It is high quality, dense wool. We were going to use it infront of a door going out to the porch, but it is too thick for the door to open, so we scooted it back 3 feet and put a thin indoor/outdoor rug right infront of the door. This rug also does not work infront of interior doors, as it was infront of a hall closet before we moved it. It is about 1 inch thick.
