      I love the looks of this only negative is that it is difficult to keep clean. Can't be vacuumed and the rake doesn't get everything out.

      This rug is very gorgeous and very plush, but it also sheds and sticks to clothing badly!! This item arrived in a timely fashion, but the bag it was in had several holes/rips in it. Perhaps due to the delivering company? Unfortunately I wouldn't buy this item again.

    • Difficult to maintain
      Verified Purchase

      We have had this rug for three years. Love the color and the look of the rug, however this rug sheds a lot and is difficult to maintain. Whenever we had kids visiting we had to roll and put away the rug. Now that we ave a baby we will be replacing this rug. For an adults only home, this will work fine.

    • Not what I expected
      Verified Purchase

      When rug arrived in a plastic bag I knew It was not for us. I had expected a more constructed rug that would arrive in a roll and have a lasting shape not a lightweight throw rug type that could be folded up. Overstock was very nice and handled the return promptly. For my needs I needed more information, in the description, about the construction of the backing and needed a more substantial rug. I hesitated to give it a poor rating as I am sure if someone was looking for that particular type of rug this would have fit their needs...for our requirements it was poor. I guess I was not educated on exactly what "Flokati" was.

    • Excellent value, beautiful rug!
      Verified Purchase

      5-stars *at this price point*. Of course there are thicker flokatis but you'll pay for those. As others have noted, the natural color is a yellow-white, not a white-white or a brown-white. It's just the color of flokati wool. I have it in a room with warm oak flooring, espresso color furniture, and other dark accents like browns and blacks. It sets off the room beautifully, and with darker colors around it it appears just creamy white. If you know flokati you know it's not a carpet. This is a woven throw so absolutely, without a doubt, buy the Supreme Dual Felted rug pad for it. The one with the natural rubber on one side and the synthetic on the other (rubber side down for wood floors). Combined with the pad, the rug feels very luxurious under bare feet. As for vacuuming/cleaning: Yup, it sheds. And taking an 8x10 rug outside to shake it out isn't an option. I do vacuum it but *stay away from the edges* or you'll eat the rug. Just be smart and careful about it. The shedding fibers fill a vacuum up fast so just take note. However I have noticed over time that the shedding is rapidly decreasing. I don't notice those poofs of fiber around the room any more. And frankly if you have pets in the house it's just not a big thing :o All in all, this rug is a beauty, an incredible value for the price, and is a centerpiece that brightens up a blah room.

      Verified Purchase

      I ordered the Flokati Wool Shag rug for my husband's study/den. It promptly arrived! When we opened the rug it was a beautiful off-white truly shag-type rug. I didn't expect it to be so thin in texture. It is not a thick, luxurious rug. But if you're looking for something that's stylish, that's chic and is impressive to look at, the Flokati is your rug.

    • Flokati Rug in Ivory
      Verified Purchase

      The the wool rug. This rug was purchased after we replaced our flooring with a dark acacia wood floor. Needed the ivory shag to brighten and lighten the floor. We have brown leather sofas and the contrast is stunning. We were worried about "shag" as we just ripped up our shag rug to change to wood. But this is like no other. It's more like a fluffy cloud. We purchased a good quality pad to go under the rug. Loved the rug online, love it in our home. Empty nesters with occasional grandchildren visits, the kids love the rug. I found the inexpensive Hoover Nano vacuum works well with the rug. Just change the vacuum to suction with no beater bar and it does a splendid job. We really love it and are pleased with our purchase.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I have the 8*10, rug and LOVE it. One problem so does my dog, my once cream rug had a roll spot that is darker than the rest of the rug. I am terrified to wash it, can I put in in one of the large washer at the launderette. Please advise Pamela"

      • A:

        We do not recommend wishing this rug. The best way to clean these rugs is with light but routine vacuuming. In the event of a small stain, spot treat with a mixture of water, white vinegar and mild detergent. Anything more serious than that, we recommend contacting a professional.
