We purchased this rug for our family room - specially, we wanted something soft enough to sit and lie on but not so soft that kids couldn't stack blocks/legos/do puzzles on it. This rug is perfect! It feels very soft but it thick enough that we can play on it without things tumbling around. We have a long-haired black dog who sheds like mad, and surprisingly her fur doesn't seem to gather on this rug like it has on other rugs or carpets. It is also right by our back door, and though we always try to wipe our feet we inevitably track some dirt onto the rug (especially said dog) and it is easy to clean or just vacuum up - the pile is thick enough that stains sit on the surface instead of soaking into the wool and making it hard to come out. We vacuum a few times a week and the rug is holding up well there too - other wool rugs i have shed like crazy but this one doesn't seem to barely at all. I really like the colors, but it is hard to describe because everyone's computer monitor is a little different. As a reference, the green band is pretty close to Sherwin Williams' SW 6410 if you can get your hands on a paint chip. The deepest blue is a gorgeous peacock color that exactly matches our Crate and Barrel Henley throw pillow in Peacock (http://www.***.com/turquoise-objec-105174). Hope this helps.
