As the write up for this item mentions, the rug has an odor. I've been airing it out for a couple of days now, and it is getting more faint, so I am hopeful that in time it will disappear. Thw weird thing is that the odor smells synthetic, and yet the product label says it is real sheepskin...? Anyways, the rug is very soft, and despite some of the comments left by other reviewers, it is mostly white (yes, there are offwhite and yellowish tinges, but that's to be expected for natural hair). There is one piece of hair that's longer than the rest and sticks out. I find it adorable. But so soft... And did I mention, so soft???
I had purchased 2 smaller sheepskin rugs from Safavieh and needed a 3rd. It is beautiful to look at and is so comfortable on bare feet. I go into the guest room just to walk on this rug!
Just opened my new Safavieh Hand-woven Sheepskin Pelt White Shag Rug and it's beautiful, soft and lofty. The size is accurate (6' x 2') and slightly than 2' in a few areas. The wool is glossy with a lovely yellow undertone. There is a slight chemical odor, as mentioned in previous reviews, but not overwhelming. I expect the smell to fade after a few days of airing out. The "rug" is currently over the back of my couch but will ultimately be used to soften the seat of my new hanging wicker chair. Can't wait to try it out.
