Shag rugs come in a multitude of colors and the pile range depth is from one inch to about two and a half inch giving that luxurious softness and lush style. Usually rugs are tufted or woven in loops and then sheared to get the short fibers but shag rugs are left without shearing the length and that gives them that deep piled lush soft feel. If you are looking for an extra soft warm shag rug go in for rugs that have a high pile of over 2 inches. The shorter pile gives less warmth and softness.
