Features and Benefits of Shaggy Rugs

shag shag rugs shaggy shaggy rugs wool shag rug

Shag Rugs (or Shaggy Rugs) are a unique style of floor rug, characterized by a longer pile length than other rugs, and sometimes referred to as "noodles" for their noodle like shape. This longer pile length (often ranging between 20mm and 50mm) most often has a much looser feel, hence the "shaggy" name.

First popularized in the 1970's, shaggy rugs are again a trending style, with many people choose a shaggy rug for their living rooms because of their soft texture, cushioned feel underfoot, and the relaxed, casual feel they create. Shaggy rugs are very durable, and easy to maintain.

Another benefit of shaggy rugs is the warmth they create on your floor, especially helpful for anyone with carpet or wood floorboards in the winter months - perfect for a cozy evening in your lounge room watching your favourite new TV series or a movie. Shaggy rugs can also work well as a feature rug in a bedroom.

A wide variety of materials can be used to manufacture shaggy rugs. Here at Rugs Of Beauty, we stock everything from machine made polypropylene and polyester shag rugs to hand knotted designer wool shag rugs to suit all tastes and budgets. There is a wide variety of colours available to equally enhance the mood of your room and compliment your existing decor.

Of all the materials used in shaggy rugs, wool is by far the best, for many reasons, including its hypoallergenic, environmentally-friendly and fire-resistant qualities. To read more about the benefits of purchasing a wool rug, please read our blog post Why Buy A Wool Rug.

Shaggy rugs can also help to reduce noise in a home or office, as a result of the long pile cushioning the impact of footsteps on your floors.

Below are a few examples of shag rugs from Rugs Of Beauty.
