This rug is gorgeous - really, the picture does not do it justice. The color is perfectly creamy and the wool shag seems like very good quality, especially for the price. However...we've had the rug approximately one month and it is still shedding. I vacuum it about every other day (with the hand held attachment from my Dyson), but the shedding still has not stopped - it's like we have a new pet it in the house. I have dark wood floors, so the light wool hairs are quite noticeable. If the shedding eases up, then I will change my rating to a 5. At this point, it's a 3. The ordering process was very easy and the rug came within a week of purchase. Very pleased with my first Overstock.com experience.
