I have this rug in my living room and it sheds SO MUCH. If you sit on the rug with dark pants, you get up looking like you just rolled on the floor at a barber shop (so much "hair" visible). Right after laying the rug and vacuuming it, my cat started having violent sneezing attacks. After two vacuums, the dust bag was so full that it clogged my whole vacuum. When I went to dislodge the wool from the vacuum tubing, it was like watching a green wool snake pop out. I decided to keep the rug, hoping that the shedding would decrease over time, however, after 6 weeks, vacuuming and dust mopping the entire first floor is on my DAILY to-do list -- both to help my cat breate easy and to keep my floors from looking like they have tumbleweeds. This is a HIGH MAINTENANCE rug!! Buyer beware. (Tip: use the HIGHEST pile setting on your vacuum to prevent the beater bar from tearing up the rug and causing more shedding.) Also of note: my rug needed to be trimmed with scissors in several places due to inconsistency in pile length (some of the individual tufts were super long or torn-apart looking). Using sharp scissors did the trick to make it look even. The color of the rug is a sage/olive green (but almost feels like a neutral tone) and adds a nice layer of texture to the room. Now only if it would stop this crazy shedding...
