      Option: 5' x 7' - Natural

      after reading some of the negative reviews of this product, i was frightened that the rug would end up looking like rat hair, or something. i also expected it to be incredibly itchy because of the wool. i was pleasantly surprised when i received it today, which by the way was only 2 business days after i had ordered it. the wool is VERY soft. craftsmanship is impressive as well. sure it sheds, but i feel like that is typical of ALL wool (think about it, your winter sweaters shed don't they?). also the value of this rug is incredible. i looked at many other stores before checking overstock, and these rugs ran well into the $300s-$500s, especially for the size. overall much more satisfied than i thought i would be. don't take the negative reviews too seriously, especially since this rug is such a great value.

      Verified Purchase
      Option: 3' x 5' - Blue | 3' x 5' - Natural

      This rug is very soft and thick - it's great quality! I do have one major complaint though...I was sent two of these rugs and both of them were obviously used. I ordered the natural color, and at first was sent a blue rug. It came tightly packaged and was brand new. I had to send it back though because it was the wrong color. As always, O.com's customer service was great. I was shipped a new rug in about a week, but this time it came shoved in a box. It was the correct color, but there was dog hair all over the rug, the sticker was torn off the box, it wasn't tightly packaged...it was awful. I contacted customer service and they apologized, and said they'd send me a new rug. Well, I just got my rug last night, and again, it came shoved in a box, there was no sticker on the back, it was DIRTY.... needless to say I was frustrated. I contacted customer service again and they said that they were sold out of the rug - that's probably why I kept getting used rugs. I ended up trying to clean this rug (which was hard because it's thick wool so you can't exactly just vaccum it...I had to literally pick things out of it), but I got it clean for the most part. I'm very happy with the quality of the rug, just frustrated with being sent two used items. If you're getting this rug in another color, hopefully they'll have new, unused rugs to send you!

    • Educate yourself

      Just FYI, these rugs are wool and DO shed. They need raked, they need shaken out, and they need special care when having them cleaned. They will last forever, but educate yourself on how to care for them. I adore Flokati, the thicker the better. But they are not "simple." I bought one awhile back from Overstock and I just wanted to let people know that there is a learning curve with them. The one I purchased from Overstock was as fine as any other. Go to a reputable website that sells these exclusively and read up about their care, the weight/thickness issues, etc. THEN you can complain if you think the one you purchased is less than quality.

      Option: 3' x 5' - Grey | 3' x 5' - Natural

      I now have 3 of these wool shag rugs and I just love them. I like natural fibers and these New Zealand wool rugs are good to look at and feel wonderful under my feet. The size is small enough that I can shake them out. Although the shag pile is long, it isn't as dense as a cut pile rug and feels thin. If you want a thicker feel to the rug a rug pad would probably be best.

    • Excellent value, beautiful rug!

      Option: 8' x 10' - Natural

      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.

      Option: 5' x 7' - Natural

      I was very surprised to get a rug this good on-line, sight unseen. It is very thick, plush and lovely. I have been looking at flokati rugs for years and this is the best I've seen. The wool is super soft. I would not recommend it if you have shedding pets or messy children. I think it would be impossible to get the hair out. Good for adults only in my opinion. Little toys would get lost in the deep fibers and drippy juice boxes would be awful. It slides around easily and does need a pad (which I ordered here today) to keep it in place. It's a beautiful carpet. I am very happy with it.

    • Perfect!

      Option: 9' x 12' - Natural

      I ordered the 9'x12" rug and couldn't be more pleased with this purchase. The rug is exactly as pictured -- very light and fluffy, and an "almost" white color. It is not bright white, but it is white. Not yellow at all as mentioned in some other reviews. It feels VERY soft to the touch and is well constructed. I bought the Safavieh Durable Hard Surface & Carpet Rug Pad 9'x12', which I recommend, as the Flokati isn't thick or padded at all. The Safavieh rug pad needed to be trimmed about six inches on the short side to satisfy my taste which was easy to do with an ordinary pair of scissors. Others have mentioned this was a difficult task, but I simply used the scissors I had on hand in my kitchen drawer. Back to the Flokati...it is a beautiful rug and is exactly the look I was going for in my contemporary home. It does, however, shed...a lot. At least for the first week I needed to vacuum twice a day. Now, three weeks later, I'm vacuuming about every second or third day. I find this maintenance level acceptable, you may not. I have the rug placed over a dark wood floor in my living room. The rug fibers migrate to the wood floor, thus, requiring the vacuuming. Remember, when vacuuming the rug you must turn off the beater bar function on your vacuum cleaner. Otherwise, you'll either ruin your new rug or ruin your vacuum cleaner. Overall, I am completely satisfied with my rug and I LOVE it!

      Option: 5' x 7' - Natural

      I love this rug, but there are a few things that differ from what I was expecting. The good first: The rug is very soft and is true to size and color. It has only shed a little for me, but I brushed it with a metal dog brush and shook it out before I started using it. Now the unexpected: From the description and pictures I thought the fibers would be more tightly packed to make a deeper nap. As it is, the fibers mostly lay flat and the rug is only about 0.5 inches tall. Fluffing it now and again helps it look thicker. The rug backing is a bit stretchy and quite slippy on a smooth surface. I purchased a felted, no-slip, rug pad with great results. The rug now stays in place and is even a bit softer to walk on.

    • Better than expected

      Option: 5' x 7' - Natural

      I almost didn't order this rug due to the bad reviews. I took the advise of one reviewer to go to the Flokati site and read all the info on the rug. It arrived shortly after ordering and was in perfect condition after unrolling it. I took it outside and shook it as the Flokati site suggests. I had purchased a plastic leaf rake and raked the rug before lying it down on the pad I had purchased. I have had it for about a month and I love it. I rake it several times a week, getting quite a collection of wool shag and contrary to some reviewers, I vacuum it once a week, as I have grandkids, dogs and cats who love to hang out on and around it. Yes, you can vacuum it, just not with the rotary beater. You can even machine wash it if the rug is small enough to fit your machine and hang to dry. I have wood floors and there are some shag balls, but nothing like reviewers mentioned. I sweep, Swiffer and vacuum my floors quite often because of all the activity in my house. A reviewer mentioned the rug was more like a throw due to the backing. If the backing was thick or stiff on my 5 X 7 rug I wouldn't be able to pick it up with ease and shake it outside. The rug seems to get thicker and softer each time I rake or vacuum it. It may not be for everyone so please go to the Flokati site and read up. There are many grades of the rug along with prices. This is middle of the road. For me, it's perfect and a keeper. Overstock has done it again. Thank you!

    • Beautiful Rug!!!!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 5' x 7' - Natural

      I love this rug!!! I bought three! I was a little concerned when I first received the rug because it didn't look plush at all. I took a medium bristled brush and gently brushed the rug. This removed the excess hair and opened the fibers right up, making it soft and very plush. I noticed that if I brush the rug often, it removes any dirt or whatever falls into the rug before it falls too deep into the rug making it difficult to remove. I have two small children and I don't have any issues with hairs from the rug getting all over them. This is due to the fact that I make sure I brush it often. It truly is a beautiful rug.

      Option: 3' x 5' - Natural

      I was thrilled to find a shag rug with a great price and had high expectations after reading the previous reviews. When I opened the box I was thoroughly disappointed. I was hoping for a softer wool, but it felt like someone bleached bigfoot, skinned him, and made a rug. It sheds terribly and I am in the process of returning the rug. This is also the first time I've ordered something from overstock without getting any type of return label, which is incredibly inconvient. Very disappointed.

      Option: 3' x 5' - Pink

      The rug is pretty and arrived quickly after purchase, but I was dusting and mopping the floors twice a day and could not understand where the heck the dust balls were coming from. Finally I realized it is the rug!! So the wool gets on my socks and basically is transferred all over the house. If I could do it over again I would not buy this rug.

    • Not what I expected
      Verified Purchase
      Option: 8' x 10' - Natural

      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.

      Beautiful. It’s wool and it sheds a lot but it feels wonderful under my feet. I rake it once or twice per week to gather up the loose fibers and it seems to be “settling” in. It is surprisingly light weight and should have a pad or some sort of non slip backing. Overall, I am very satisfied with my wool shag rug.
