I asked my nephew to help me pick a rug (3 hours in Ikea can be rough on a 3 year old). When I found the Flokati, he automatically laid on it and told me it was soft. He then tried to lift it and place it in the cart, sold! It was kind of cute to watch.
The sales guy warned me that this rug would shed like crazy. I was willing to take the risk. I hope I don't regret it later when I'm vacuuming all the time. It's not really a high traffic area, so I hope that helps. Have you had any experiences with Flokati rugs?
