I purchased two of these rugs for my great room. They have been down for about a week and have required daily sweeping. What scares me the most is it is not only fuzz that comes out with sweeping it is whole pieces of yarn!! I realize these are not expensive rugs but I have purchased lots of rugs in this price range and these are shedding more than any I have ever purchased. I hope to get a few years use of these and I will be pleasantly surprised if I do. Aside from that, I wanted something that was different from normal traditional style rugs. These are attractive in the room and I hope this time next week I have a more positive opinion of them.
