We love this rug - it is plush and thick. We were surprised however by the color. It is much lighter in person. I was expecting something that was turquoise - it is not. However, it is a nice color. In combination with the turquoise wool thread, there is also white/cream thread. It gives the turquoise a silvery look - almost making it baby blue. Aside from this, we do really love the rug. And even better - it arrived 2 days after we ordered it!.
