When I took this rug out of the packaging, my Jack Russel immediately snuggled down into it. It is so soft and snuggly. If you have OCD, this rug may drive you nuts, or be just what you need to work on that pesky perfectionist within. The edges will not stay perfectly straight, and you will definitely need a GOOD rug pad to hold it in place, but I'm personally looking forward to the freedom i will gain by banishing the need for right angles and order in my life. This rug adds so much texture and warmth to the room. It is a tad scratchy, but then, it IS wool, so what do you expect. I definitely recommend taking a clean, plastic garden rake to it, initially, and then shake the heck out of it to fluff. And, if I may, I'm gonna plug the Electrolux ErgoRapido Bagless Cordless Handheld/Stick Vacuum Cleaner, EL1014A. I just bought this vacuume to use on this rug. Nowhere in the description of this vacuume does it mention that the roller brush is removeable. Well, it IS, and that is exactly what you need for this rug. You cant vacuum Flokati wool with a normal vacuume because the wool would get tangled in the roller brush, but with this Electrolux, you can. (Check it out, hands on, at Target or Bed Bath & Beyond). Anyhoo - hope this helps and happy rug shopping! BTW - my JRT has just rolled himself up in the corner of this rug as if it were a blanket....
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color of my rug is darker than shown, It's more of a light charcol color, but since this is a natural product, there's no way for every rug to be the same.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. This rug FEELS and looks expensive. SO luxurious!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very.
