A flokati is unusual and unless you are familiar with the type of rug, you might be disappointed, as some have expressed. However, we were fortunate to have purchased several of these 40 years ago while stationed overseas with the military. Ours came from Greece and stayed with us for many years. I was a little reluctant to purchase again online (we have given our old ones away to family many years ago), but decided to buy again as it was exactly what I wanted for our bedroom. It is positively gorgeous! Exactly as it should be, but....flokatis look like the wool from a yeti....so be prepared! It is VERY shaggy, wooly, clumpy and not baby soft. BUT....if you are familiar with this type of carpet, you will not be disappointed. I don't know if this is a "premium" quality, but it is extremely heavy, lush and plush and we love it! You must shake it out and, if you want it to be more uniform in texture, you should rake it gently. It is almost impossible to vacuum unless you just want to use lowest setting on your vac to get "fuzzies" that settle on it. The site says you can wash it, but we purchased the 7 x 9 and it would be impossible to dry it if we tried, so we will maintain it by shaking and raking from time to time. I actually prefer the "clumpy" look, but that's me. Buy it....IF YOU KNOW THIS KIND OF CARPET, you will love it!
