I purchased this rug for my infant twins' toy room. I wanted a soft surface for them to roll around and crawl. This rug is very soft, very cute, and resists stains well.As with any new wool rug, it sheds quite a bit (a lot of fuzz balls); but my experience with other wool rugs is that it stops shedding in about a month or two.All in all, it's a great deal. Before I purchased it, I looked online and in stores to see if I could find it cheaper. It costs about $800+ at other sites/stores. I love a bargain!Best of all, it looks adorable in my boys' toy room.
