I do not own this rug.... But in response to other reviews about the shedding of this rug..... All wool rugs WILL shed. When they are made, the pile is much higher than the finished product. The last step in the rug making process is to shave down the pile to the desired height. It's very similar to shaving men's hair- a lot of the hairs will fall off the head but some with rest on top of the head and within the hair, and continue to fall off later. As you can imagine, much of the wool that is shaven off falls between the remaining fibers, and start working their way out when you walk on it.
