Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Miamiguy SHEDS AND SHEDS AND SHEDS AND SHEDS AND SHEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I purchased this rug exactly a year ago, and this Tuesday I am happily going to throw it out.
I simply cannot put up with the daily shedding - no matter what I do. I have vacuumed it
every day, have picked out the pieces that looked like they were going to shed - nothing
works. This rug sheds so much that the lint is actually distributed throughout my entire
home. I find lint in all rooms on a daily basis!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS RUG - life is too short.

DO NOT BUY THIS RUG!!! After 3 months of post nasal drip and coughing I finally threw this rug out on the porch. Miraculously my coughing stopped in about 3 hours. I had been to the Dr. and he said it was allergies but after 3 months I knew it was something else. No rug... no more coughing!!!! I almost threw it out a month ago but the internet said this was a hypoallergenic fiber so I dismissed it and look for other triggers. It was the rug!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Frommiami GREAT LOOK - REQUIRES LOTS OF CARE
Great look. However it sheds like crazy!! I'm hoping that daily vacuuming will eventually
stop the shedding. I have dark glossy wooden floors and every single fiber and lint ball
that flies off the carpet shows up instantly on the floors. I have to vacuum the floors every

Great area rug for our hardwood and tile floors. Very comfortable to lay on, soft on your feet.
Every now and then some pieces will come loose, and I'm nervous to clean (vacuum?) it, but otherwise we love this rug!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AKirk So Dissappointed
I guess I should have known better. I have been looking for rugs in an aqua color for weeks. Saw these and thought my search was over. When they arrived today, I could not have been more disappointed. They are no where near the color or texture of the photos. The color is a dirty greenish grey and the odor is horrible. Smells like a wet dog. Now I have to pay to return this mess.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shagfriendly You will love/hate this rug!
First I want to say that I ordered this rug on a Friday night and it shipped on a Monday and arrived on Wednesday so awesome service from homedecorators but now for the story of my rug which has parallels to the movie gremlins if anybody is old enough to remember that movie.
Prologue: I read all the reviews prior to purchasing and have to admit I was nervous after reading all the shedding comments but I was looking for soft and everybody agreed it was soft. I also needed an olive color to fit the room décor and not too many carpets come in that color. Finally, nobody could beat the price. Yes, I saw a few for slightly cheaper in other places but all were reviewed as thin and sparse and I wanted the “ultimate shag”.
Scene 1: Rug arrives and first check is color which is exactly as I had hoped, a true olive, not army camo, not sea green, but exactly the color of an olive in a martini glass. I smelled and was happy that there was no chemical or off-putting smell. I unrolled in designated spot and thought how adorable and perfect (just the way the guy felt about Gizmo when he first saw him in the Chinatown shop). The similarities start to get eerie here as like Gizmo, the ultimate shag is also from China.
Scene 2: I look for furballs or signs of shedding and think this doesn’t look too bad. But I decide to give it a quick vacuum. Seems like the right thing to do. Wrong. Running a vacuum over this rug is like giving Gremlins a bath. Suddenly tufts of carpet are multiplying like gremlins in a bath and flying around mischievously.
Scene 3: Ohhhh nooooo!! The reviews are right. But like Billy in Gremlins I fight back. I furiously vacuum (a great workout btw trying to move your vacumm back and forth over gremlinshag). After three passes back and forth, my vacuum feels hot to the touch and starts wheezing.
Scene 4 (set in Appliance ER): I have to triage the bagless vacuum which is hot to the touch and viciously choked and smothered in fuzz by gremlinshag And the clear tubing is blanketed from top to bottom and the roller almost immovable from strangulation froml fibers that wrap and tighten like a boa constrictor. But after twenty minutes of surgery, I save the vacuum!! Worried, however, that breathing in all the carpet fibers will give me mesothelioma.
Scene 5: I cautiously run the vacuum over the carpet making sure to stop and remove gremlin fuzz and it seems like I’m taming the carpet. I stop and my back is sore from all the work. I decide to lie on the shag and stretch out. Oh so comfortable, oh so soft and cushiony, but not too high, just right. This shag is like the flawed boyfriend you know is a project but you love him anyway and might live together happily ever after.
Scene 6: Wrong! Manipulative scheming carpet got me to lie down so he could cover me in tufts of carpet fuzz. Like zebra mussels on the hull of a ship, I transport the fuzzballs all over the house. I was in the kitchen making a snack and somehow fuzz is on the counter, in the bathroom on the tile, and stuck like leeches to my corduroy slippers. I am going to return this in the morning.
Scene 7: I vacuum once again and call it a night after my Dyson cries “uncle”. In the middle of the night I wake up thirsty and walk across the shag in bare feet. Sooo Nice!!! This carpet feels amazing!! Okay you can stay.
Scene 8: The morning sunlight streams into my apartment and here and there I see little olive tufts of fuzz. But the rug looks great and it’s going to make a fine companion and I’m going to keep it. I’ve decided it’s more like a lovable pet that just keeps shedding rather than a gremlin or a manipulative boyfriend. I’ll have to brush (vacuum) regularly but in the end we’re all part of the family. I love you Ultimate Shag.
