The first several weeks there was a ton of shedding, which was disappointing, but also was mentioned in several reviews, so we accepted that. However, just a few months in the rug started to pull and unravel. It is noticeable and has to be replaced. Do not buy this item- horrible quality.
The rug continues to shed, so much that you would think there would be no rug left. ON A VERY POSITIVE NOTE, OVERSTOCK STOOD BY THE PRODUCT AND ACCEPTED OUR RETURN WITH PAID SHIPPING LABEL. The white wool was all over our house and furnishings. Great looking rug, but not very well constructed.
I'm going to return this rug, but it's mainly because it doesn't fit with my decor. The rug is accurately described, and the color appears to be the color pictured on the website. I bought the 9 x 12 size, so I don't know about the other, smaller sizes, but the scale of the pattern is huge. Each white trellis is 14.5 inches wide and 19 inches long, and that is measuring inside the pattern. I think the rug has such a large scale that it dominates the room. The white trellis part is a cut wool and the blue part is a looped wool. I've had problems in the past with my dog catching her claws in looped wool rugs and then chewing the wool that comes loose. The rug is a very pretty sky blue, but it's just not for me. The pattern is just so large I can't find any accessories that aren't overwhelmed by it.

Had been looking for a patterned modern rug for a while in Australia and found nothing at under $2000.00. This one had a perfect design and great colour for my living room. I also wanted something a bit plush so I can sit on the rug and read a magazine etc, so flatweave wasn't an option. This one is quite soft and has a pleasant feel under foot. Does require a lot of vacuuming at this stage as little wool tufts keep appearing, but looks great again after a vacuum. Not sure if the tufts will stop after I've had it a while.

Before I opened the package, I could smell a foul odor. When I opened it I immediately took the rug out to the garage because it smelled like it had been stored in a barn. The areas that were supposed to be white were beige and looked soiled. I immediately rewrapped it to return it but since I couldn't take it for two days, my garage became full of the same horrible smell. I am returning the rug along with the other one of a different size. I have to pay about $** to return the two of them and I am requesting that they not replace them. I sincerely hope they do not send me a replacement because I will be very angry. This is the first time I ordered on overstock and will not be ordering from them in the future.
There are two listings for 8' x 10', both with the same price. This is a type on overstock's part. The first one is actually 7.5' x 9.5'. This worked out for me, but fair warning if it hasn't been updated. Otherwise, it's a beautiful rug, Just a little bit dirty in some spots when it was rolled out. It should clean up though. Pretty happy with the purchase overall, however.
Yes, this rug is wool and it sheds. But it is absolutely beautiful in person--a real baby blue with off-white trellising. I've been looking for a rug for my nursery, and I haven't managed to find anything this plush or this beautiful, so I'll take the shedding.
I bought this rug for my son's room, so his rolling desk chair would not ruin the hardwood floor. It does the job, but is somewhat difficult to vacuum because the white design is raised, and the "fuzz" isn't picked up by the machine. It is a very nice looking rug, but I'd be hesitant to use it in a high traffic area because of the vacuuming issue.
