Floppy pile with long 3 shimmer yarns that lay out in dazzling combinations. Short and long combinations of yarn provide delightful plushness and a soft, shimmering hand. Use of a rug pad is recommended to extend the life of your rug and prevent sliding. Rug arrives factory rolled, may have creases from packaging and storage. Normally flattens within 5-7 days. Expedite by rolling, pattern side up, and massaging creases to loosen them. Laying out in a sunny room helps further loosen the backing. Super easy to clean. For spills, remove excess material and blot with a clean cloth dampened with lukewarm water. Repeat with a solution of lukewarm water and dish detergent (or use carpet cleaner). Finish by blotting with water and a clean white cloth.
