"Hi! There's been some confusion about the same question I asked for another similar 5x8 rug, so I just want to clarify. All I'm asking is for someone to measure the width of this rug (only 1 rug, not all of them in stock) just to get an idea whether it is slightly under 5', exactly 5', or slightly over 5'. I know there can be some variation in 5x8 rugs and any of those scenarios is possible. It really is important and it would be so much easier than the large expense and hassle of trying to return the rug if the size was slightly off. Please respond ASAP as I've been waiting since Jan 12th for a response! Thank you!"
This rug has such a thick pile that it's great for my son's jungle themed bedroom. The kids love playing on it and it is so soft to sit/walk on. Given the thickness of the pile, I would just caution to be careful of whether you plan to put furniture on top that could be imbalanced if not all legs are on it or if it will be near doors. The closet door brushes up against it if it is too close and sometimes makes it difficult to open and close the door....

Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.

I bought two of these for my daughter's rooms. What a terrible mistake! They arrived on time and as described, no issues there. The problem was after arrival. They shed for one month and there was lint everywhere all the time ... not fun. After many vacuums it finally stopped. Not, after ONLY 6 MONTHS, they look awful! The white parts are all black, they are so dirty and the rug looks warn and terrible. This is not recommended in children's rooms. The kicker is that you can't get it professionally cleaned. Instructions say you need it to clean it yourself Who is going to wash this heavy, thick pile, wool rug? I'm so upset I'm stuck with these after spending the money to buy two Unless you're single and have no traffic in your place, I don't recommend these for anyone else. Don't make the mistake I did.Read More
Be prepared to vacuum this thing daily. One hour after vacuuming, it looks like a trio of shedding cats rolled all over it. We've probably vacuumed it two dozen times so far, but it's stills still throwing off fuzz like nobody's business. If not for that, this would be a perfect rug. It's plush, soft, and cushiony.Read More
We got this rug for our baby's nursery. It fits the space perfectly. The delivery was prompt and the quality of the rug is quite good for the price. The only negative aspect we have found is that the rug pills a lot. Hopefully this will improve over time.Read More
This rug arrived promptly about 4-5 days after I purchased it. The description is right on point. It really livens up the living room! Colors are a beautiful chocolate brown with cream. This was definitely a great buy!Read More

Many compliments and even after all this time it still looks new. Only thing to keep in mind is it takes quite a bit of vacuuming and time to suck up all the loose fiber you usually get from new rugs. Otherwise it has been a great addition and highly recommend.Read More
Very soft and comfy. Brown color is slightly lighter than it appears online.Read More
When I told a friend I ordered a giraffe print rug for the dining room, she thought I was a bit nuts. When she saw it, she changed her mind immediately! The rug doesn't scream animal print. It is a much higher quality than I expected. Unlike other posts, I do not agree that it sheds horribly. Yes, it will shed a bit the first few vacuums, but it is significantly less in comparison to other rugs I've purchased especially considering the thickness. I've had it for several months and highly recommend it. I think the color isn't as vibrant/dark in comparison to the photo. I have it on light wood flooring under a dark modern dining table. Dog hair vacuums easily and the meatball my boyfriend dropped didn't leave a stain with a quick blot with rug cleaner.Read More
The rug is just the way I imagined it. It works perfectly in my office. The fibers do shed a bit at first but that's usually the case with a wool rug.Read More
