    • Very soft but color is a horrible yellow & sheds
      Verified Purchase

      This rug is incredibly soft, but it is shedding horribly and is the worst yellow color, not at all white or even ivory - straight up hideous yellow. I have 2 other sheepskin rugs in my home & both are a very nice creamy color & never shed like this one. Very disappointed in this purchase & would not recommend at all.

      Moments after laying this rug out and admiring the appearance, I noticed a bug crawling on it. I was immediately taken aback. It's Winter in MN. I haven't seen an insect in months. Sure enough, it was a bed bug. When I began combing through the rug I came across over a dozen insect sheddings and particals. I even found a live Carpet Beetle milling about, no big deal. Within one month every wool sweater and blanket I own will likely either be eaten to shreds by Carpet Beetles or have to be burned to rid them of bed bugs. Feeling totally mortified and helpless, I reach out to immediately to pass along what our government would consider to be valuable environmental health information. I was asked if I would like a replacement. I inquired as to whether the replacement would be from the same location as my bed bug rug. I was informed that it was likely. I refused the replacement. I was instructed to mail the infested item back and an $18.98 return shipping fee would be assessed. That was literally the response I received. I entertained the idea that perhaps the person "assisting" me was totally unaware of what bed bugs are..and carpet beetles. I tactfully expressed my discontent and I GOT FREE SHIPPING. Fabulous. Thanks for the free return label in order to rid the source of two totally horrendous pests brought to me, by you. Pay the other retailer's price of $1900. After you've had to replace clothing, bedding, rugs, mattresses, and pay extermination fees, you'll have saved more money than what buying this rug cheaply at will cost you in the end.

    • Beautiful Rug!
      Verified Purchase

      My rug arrived extremely well packaged, as all of my rugs have. I read another review where stating there was an oder. I rolled my rug out and the only smell I really noticed was the typical new rug smell that would come along with anything that had been rolled up and package for a period of time. After a day or so it was gone. I layered this rug over a jute rug I also purchased from Overstock and it looks quite lovely. I am redecorating my home and my designer very much liked the look. The backing is not very thick but perfect for that type of rug. I would not recommend this rug in a high-traffic area. While this rug will be laying in my living room, I am the only one that lives in my home. My grandaughter has been over in rolled around in it and loved it, I have fallen asleep on it with the fireplace on. With respect to shedding, I haven't noticed that to be an issue.I wish this rug came in a larger size, I have a bedroom upstairs that it would look gorgeous in. I would certainly not hesitate to re-order this rug multiple times.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Is the back of this rug the pelt suede or is it fabric?"

      • A:

        The backing for this item is a sheepskin pelt.

    • Q:

      "Is the actual product on hand a 6 pelt or 8 pelt (octo)... I know they are stitched together, kindly do not give me a generic answer that they are sewn and the shapes vary as I'm looking for a specific shape. Large sheepskin rugs come either 6 pelt (3 very defined curves on two sides) or 8 pelts (4 defined curves on two sides). I prefer the shape of a 6 pelt (just like the picture shows) but, I am hesitant to purchase because this particular size (5.5x7.7) is usually 8 pelted. Consequently, I'd like a confirmation on whether this item is a 6 or 8 pelt (ITEM#: 14668290). Warmest thanks! The size I am looking for is a 7x6 but, they all seem to be 8 pelts. The item description above comes very close to the size I am looking for but, the picture however shows this is a 6 pelt"

      • A:

        This rug should be a six pelt as shown in the image onsite.

    • Q:

      "what is the difference between this rug and ITEM# 15270789 aside from the price? Thanks!"

      • A:

        I believe he two rugs will have a slightly different feel and are made from different manufacturers.

    • Q:

      "I'm kind of the black sheep of the family, so I'd like something in black wool. Do you have an option like this?"

      • A:

        Hello realdeal, unfortunately the Safavieh Prairie Sheepskin/ Wool White Shag Rug (5' x 8') is not available in a black option. However, we do have similar options available under ITEM#: 17710244 and ITEM#: 17710245. I hope this info helps. Thanks for shopping with us.

    • Q:

      "Is this rug white? I'm not looking for a yellow or yellowish rug"

      • A:

        Hello lizbeth259, the rug does have some spots that appear to be a cream color in my opinion. We try to represent the colors of our products accurately. Unfortunately, due to the difference in monitor colors we cannot guarantee that the color will match exactly what you see on your screen. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        purchasing for client

      • A:

        I was looking for a great sheepskin rug to fill a large and dark living room space, and this was just what I was wanting, to create light and softness.

      • A:

        size of the rug, good price and reviews were good

    • Q:

      "how does this rug get washed?"

      • A:

        Hello janilala, due to the delicate nature of the rug, we recommend professional cleaning on a periodic basis. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • Q:

      "I received this rug the other day, but I can't bring it in the house because it smells terrible. I sprinkled baking soda on it and vacuumed by hand, but still very strong smelling. Is there any recommendation you have to help this so I can use the rug? Thank you!"

      • A:

        Hello thouse50, I would just let this air out for 48 hours or so. Have a great day!

    • Q:

      "Are these sheepskin rugs shaped as they look in the photos?? I see one 5x8 Prairie that looks like it's 2 panels sewn together, and I see one 5x8 Safavia that looks like it's 3 panels sewn together. Can I expect the shape to be as it is in the photos??"

      • A:

        Hello lipstick77, we appreciate your inquiry. These are actual sheep pelts stitched together so there will be variations in the shapes of the rug. We hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have a great day!

    • Q:

      "can you vacuum this rug? looks like you have to shake it out cause the vacuum might be too powerful a suction?"

      • A:

        Shaking this rug is safe but, you could also try testing a small area using the vacuum with disabled beater and brush bars.
