Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Millie Good color, nice texture
The green is very true to the picture online - it's beautiful! !e like it even more than the picture. The rug is thick enough that it doesn't need a rug cushion, just something to keep it from sliding. It is soft to touch, but slightly scratchy when laying on it with full weight (it is wool, so this was expected). I'm a snob for comfortable rugs that you can lie on (ours is front of the fireplace) and the scratchiness isn't bad enough to stop me from laying on it...) In general, very happy with the product! Haven't tried vacuuming it yet, but noticed a lot of green fibrous material in our vacuum cleaner so my partner must have - and it still looks great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by alfie12 This is not your typical shag rug.
I am not satisfied with this rug so will be returning it. The picture online looks like a typical shag, so if that is what you want, the Venus Wasabi is not for you. This rug's individual threads of wool are about 3/8ths of an inch in diameter and maybe 1 1/2" in length so the pile is quite thick and very high (compared with a normal shag that probably has individual threads of about 1/8th or less in diameter). The description online did not mention any of this - so the appearance and thick texture of the rug was a total surprise.
The large diameter of the threads creates a very "heavy" look. Also considering I have two cats and young grandchildren, I think it would be a nightmare to vaccum (very bumpy).
On the good side, it appeared to be of excellent quality, very soft on the feet and funky, if that's your style (and you don't have kids or animals) maybe this is the rug for you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CB22 Great color, plush
Looks great. Color is a rich, deep brown and it is thick and plush. But it is shedding a lot, a little concerned about how it will wear long term.

Absolutely beautiful. Soft on the feet. However, looks nothing like the picture. The nap is quite different than how it appears in the picture. I actually much prefer it and think its more interesting than a standard shag which it is not.
