I was nervous about purchasing a rug I've never seen in person, but was happy with what arrived. It was very much like the image. Pros: The multi colors of the rug are vibrant and definitely add color to the room I was wanting. Also, the rug was heavy and thick...so it stays in place well (plus I have a rug pad for added cushion). Cons: It's not as soft as I thought it would be. The fabric twists are very stiff, so even though it's thick, it's not as fluffy as assumed. It sheds quite a bit. I already own another wool rug, and it also sheds, so that was expected. I also am not fond of the black twists scattered throughout the rug. I wish they were more of a dark brown...because the black just throws it off a bit...but not enough for me to send it back. It is a good rug of the price and I intend to hang on to it for a year or two.
