So I took the plunge...and just ordered a 10' round Flokati.
I say plunge because I've heard horror stories about these things.
But I've also heard that brushing it with a dog hair brush and raking it with a small wooden rake help tremendously.
Ordered from eBay seller vibrophil.
I laid down newspaper yesterday as a mock rug and decided 10 feet was the way to go.
Next on the "to buy" list:
As soon as I start my fall/winter job I will be able to buy all of this stuff! Well, not AS soon as, but a few weeks later.
