I absolutely LOVE this rug! Like other reviewers noted, the green is FAR lighter in person. It's almost like a really soft, muted lime/grass green. The patterned portion is ivory color. Shedding hasn't been an issue for us so far (about a month in) and it vacuums up easily. Ours was 4" short (only 9'8") so if you have a need to have it a very specific length, know it might not be a full 10'. I definitely recommend getting a nice thick 1/4" think rug pad since it is on the thinner side. It feels great with it underneath. It's wool, so a bit scratchy (but not abrasive) but really not bad at all. I sit with my two toddlers on it regularly and we're just fine with the material.
