Rated 1 out of 5 by Granola The good, the bad, and the plastic
This rug is pretty. The coloring in the online photo is accurate. I got the spruce colored version. I like that it was made here in America. That was one of the selling points.
This Capel rug does what it says it'll do which is look great and be the foundation for the furniture in my living room. I am sure the quality of the rug is fine. That's not the problem.
The problem is the content. I didn't get what I thought I was getting which is a 100% wool braided rug which the ad implies.
I have owned Capel area rugs since the early 1990s. They are 100% wool and they are so soft and still good looking even after 25 years and it's these two rugs with which I am comparing this new one. There is a huge difference in texture and overall feet comfort. This one is scratchy and reminds me of carpeting that belongs outdoors on a deck. It's awful.
These Capel rugs from JCP are 30/30/30 wool, polyester, nylon and I only know this now because of the label on the rug itself. Worse, there are sharp little "threads" that jut out and stab our feet. Maybe those sharp pieces will go away after time, but I am not going to keep this rug to find out.
I would have never ordered this rug had I known the content wasn't 100% wool which is what I thought I was ordering. I checked the online ad again and it only mentions wool. I looked all over that ad to see if I overlooked it and I can't find anywhere where it says there's synthetic fibers in this thing.
So if you don't mind a plastic feel on your feet, then by all means, buy this nice plastic rug.

I absolutely love this rug. I really like the bright twist on a traditional braid, and the colors are just gorgeous! The wool is soft but dense and feels very durable.
