We are extremely happy with this rug. Yes, it does shed, but we knew that is typical of wool rugs before we purchased it. Since we have 5 indoor pets, we are already used to vacuuming the house every day, so the amount of shedding from the rug didn't bother us. Supposedly it is supposed to greatly diminish within a few months. We'll see. We did make sure to put a felt pad under it, also ordered from Overstock. The colors are beautiful, not too loud, but definitely not muted either. The wool pile is very dense and deep. It was a great bargain since it was virtually impossible to find a rug this size locally, and when we did, the choice was very limited and the price triple what we paid here.
Just installed this carpeting on 11/9/2013. The colors are beautiful, feels good and didn't smell like chemicals. However when I swept the carpet after putting down since fibers were went everywhere and was all over carpet, especially being seen on the black areas, the vacuum, even on the lowest suction setting, kept pulling mounts of fibers, especially along the edges. I ended up using the furniture head. I am very concerned about it "shedding" constantly and not being able to do a regular vacuum instead of just a surface. I'll keep the carpet since I really like that it doesn't have any smells, is natural wool and love the colors as it matched the picture. Still very concerned with the "shedding" and question the overall value. Rating it average due to the color, feel and no smell but again, concerned with the value and fibers pulling out.
I read a reviews before purchasing the rug and it helped me decide to go ahead take the plunge and make the purchase.. I opened the package, rolled out the rug, were about an 1/2" thicker than the rest of the rug I bought before. It's a really pretty and unique feature. Long story short, the rug is a beautiful addition to my office and the colors are true to the online picture and I'm very happy with my purchase.
I had just purchased another area rug when I came across this one on Overstock.com. I immediately fell in love with it and purchased it... even though I had just bought one. I am extremely glad I did purchase it, got lots of compliments and great quality.
