I needed to replace my wool rug as my newly crawling infant was eating the strands that he pulled loose. This poly rug is great, as it does not "shed" but the only thing that quality-wise is not the best is that it's fairly easy to pull some of the loops out (which I just snip off with a scissor). For the price, and the fact that it shipped free, I think this is a good value. Colorwise, i was surprised that it was much more in the famly of olive greens than the pictured browns, but that was actually a god surprise since I wanted it to be more green anyway and was settling for brown. Very pretty pattern, vacuums very easily, and spills just stay on the surface for easy blotting.
