    • Beautiful rug
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 6' x 6' Square - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      Colors are richer and more vibrant than on the screen, which was a very pleasant surprise! Beautiful texture, soft, plush, dense, pile, I am very pleased with the rug. The only problem I found is it seems to be slightly tighter at the edge on one side, and as a result slight gathering occurs. I had to place a piece of furniture in the corner of the rug to keep it flat. I have only had it for a few days, so I hope this will get resolved in time - it does take a while for this rug to fully flatten after unpacking.

    • Beautiful rug!

      Option: 6' x 6' Square - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      First off I would like to start off by saying I have been looking for a rug for our sons room, and the places I've been looking at we're so over priced, and then shipping on top of that, and the rug was a smaller size, I could go on and on , BUT then I found this rug at Overstock.com and it was on sale and it shipped for free, and I've seen it elsewhere for 3 times as much for the size I got (6x6) square. Unbelievable Overstock! Good job. It's Beautiful, very well made, the color is more beautiful in person. It's PERFECT. Thanks again for such a great rug at a great price, oh and the shipping time was amazing too. Very very happy customer.

    • Nice rug but shedding is an issue

      This user earned $2.00 in rewards for writing this review.Learn More

      I bought this rug for my child's bedroom and I'm pleased with how it looks. It is soft to the touch and thicker than most rugs that I have purchased but a rug pad compliments the use of this rug well and made it quite comfortable. As for the shedding that was mentioned in other reviews, I have experienced the same issue. There was quite a bit on my first pass (I'll include a pic) with a vacuum but has slowly dwindled with subsequent vacuumimg but the shedding still remains. It's not really an issue for me though because it only sheds when a vacuum hits it and not at any other time. I would definitely buy this rug again! UPDATE: After exposing the rug to a bit of some heavy traffic by a child playing on it, it has shed way more than I ever expected. If you do not vacuum this rug at least once a week the shedding will get out of control and you'll have little mounds of carpet fibers everywhere. Its like having dust bunnies or a hairy pet but worse. We still really like the rug but wish it wasn't like this. Its very disappointing.

      Option: 3' x 5' - LIGHT BLUE/Dark blue

      I can't believe how much this rug sheds! We have had it for three days and there is blue fuzz all over my living room. We've tried brushing it out but it just keeps shedding. Really regret buying it.

    • Plush feel and vibrant colors!

      Option: 4' x 6' - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      This 4x6 rug is perfect for my guest bedroom. Thick, but soft pile. Colors were as advertised. Just love the blues in it.

    • Good quality, color was disappointing

      Option: 5' x 8' - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      I was really anticipating this rug for my boys room. They have a navy, light blue bed set and I thought this rug would be perfect. Unfortunately, the colors are more of a darker medium blue and a lighter medium blue instead of navy and light blue like it looks in the picture. The wool feels great, and the rug is heavy duty and great quality for the price.

      Option: 5' x 8' - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      Purchased the 5x8 rug, shipping was prompt. Product was as described. The rug does shed but this seems normal based upon previous wool rugs. I wish the rug came with a no-slip back but not a deal breaker. The rug is comfy under your feet, looks great and website image is pretty accurate.

    • Gorgeous blue wool

      Option: 8' x 10' - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      This is a gorgeous rug. The color is just as pictured. It looks beautiful in my guest bedroom that is done up as a boy's room. The rug is thick and plush. The wool is soft under the feet. I have not experienced any shedding problem with it, and I have had it for a week. I love this rug. Delivery was prompt. Thanks, Overstock.

      Option: 6' x 9' - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      I love this rug! It lloks richer in perso than the photo because the blue field is slightly darker. There is a very slight variation in the color that also helps create dimension.. Unlike many wool rugs, this one doesn't shed at all.

    • Definitely worth it

      Option: 4' x 6' - Dark blue/LIGHT BLUE

      Purchased this rug for the nursery of our baby boy and I love it. It's thick and soft, and the colors are rich and vibrant which makes the rug pop on our hardwood floor. I'm pretty sure this rug will last long and we can still use it when we eventually turn our baby's room into a little boy's room.

      This rug looks very nice, but sheds like nothing I've ever seen. Blue fuzz all over my child's room, in the hallway and down the stairs. I keep thinking it will stop, but it's been 5 months and gets vacuumed at least once a week. My child's pants are covered in blue carpet fibers everytime he plays on the rug. I wouldn't buy this again.

      Have a couple of these rugs in my kids bedrooms and love them. They are a heavy pile and feel nice under feet. They do shed in the beginning so you will need to vacuum often but it doesn't bother me. The quality and comfort is worth it. Colors have been as pictured.

      We absolutely love this rug. It is very thick and comfortable sitting on it. However, do be aware there will be lots of fuzz the first 6 months that you will be vacuuming up. I WILL order another one of these as needed in the future. I also get compliments on this rug when company comes over.

      Good price and nice colors. There are slightly visible lines apparent either vertically (or horizontally) running through the carpet, which may be part of the design or manufacturing process, but could be bothersome some if you are looking for a purely solid color. Carpet fibers seem to come off easily initially, so the rug definitely needs a good vacuum after unrolling.

      I love the feel of this rug. It sits well inside the front hallway. After one overnight it was lying flat. It is very soft underfoot. I would definitely buy again.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Will I have issues using my iRobot on this rug?"

      Have an Answer? Be the first to answer this question!
    • Q:

      "Is this hand-tufted? Is it glued to the backing?"

      • A:

        The description states it is hand made. The backing is stitched on not glued. You will need a carpet pad - webbed if directly on the floor (to stop it sliding) or cushioning to help limit wear and traffic patterns. Several reviewers state this rug sheds a lot - I haven't had that issue. I have a hall runner, so it gets a fair amount of traffic. Yes, you will see the blue fibers in your vacuum for about 4-6 months. It's wool and it will shed. I like the rug.

    • Q:

      "I would like to know about the colors of blue in this since every monitor and photo displays differently. I need to match a blue that has more red undertones than yellow which would be more of a deep periwinkle or denim. What type of blue would you say these blues project? Thank you"

      • A:

        It's not periwinkle at all, colors in the photo are spot on, no yellow undertones. Hope this helps.

    • Q:

      "What is the rug made of, does it have latex on back. Does it have fire retardants or scotch guard of any sort sprayed on it. Do you have the paperwork to say it is NOT sprayed with anything? Thanks for your time. Britt P."

      • A:

        The rug is wool. The backing is stitched on and it is fabric. It has not been scotch guarded

    • Q:

      "I wanted to put this rug on existing carpet; do I need a rug pad to go with it or will it be okay to just lay it on top of the carpet that I have....thanks JM"

      • A:

        Yes you can lay it on top is another without the pad.

    • Q:

      "I see countless comments regarding this rug shedding. If it is going to be placed under items that will not get a lot of traffic, what is the best way to decrease the amount of shedding? What specifically causes it to shed? thank you"

      • A:

        It is to be expected that all wool rugs will shed to some degree -- the difference in the pile and the knotting is also a factor. Having said that, I was so pleased with the first rug that I purchased, that I bought a second for our vacation cottage. I have not had exception shedding with either one. For the price, it's a beautiful rug.

      • A:

        Shedding typically decreases with time. Contrary to popular belief, customers will vacuum too frequently to get rid of it faster but it usually causes loose weaves and increased shedding.

      Read more Read less
    • Q:

      "Is the pile on this carpet loop or cut?"

      • A:

        It's more of a pile I think. I bought this for my teenage sons room because our house is all hardwood....it seems like big time! My Irobot fills just in his room alone but it also eats loop rugs. It is a major she'd machine. I'very had it for I months and it still sheds. Blue like hairs all over the hardwood. It's pretty.
