Ordered my rug Tues evening and received it Monday. It's beautiful. The muted colors of green and gold and tan was what I expected, the rust/rose color is brighter and will match my accent color in my living room. It's very plush and soft, it's not as thick as another expensive wool rug I have but wonderful for the value. I've seen people retuning their wool rugs because of "shedding". I'm not worried about the shedding because that's what wool rugs generally will do. So far I haven't seen too much. Now I plan to order a couple of other sizes for the same room. Super value!
