"Hello, I got the rug about 10 days ago. I've been vacuuming it every day since then to minimize the shedding, but it doesn't seem to stop or even decrease. I end up with a vacuum cleaner full of rug fibers every single time. Is this normal or did I get a defective rug? If it is normal, when will the shedding stop?"

All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.
Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.

This is an absolutely beautiful rug and it's nice quality for the price. Unfortunately this is described as taupe and grey, but the actual colors are brown, beige, and olive green. If it would have looked more like the photo I would have been ecstatic, but instead I had to send it back. Overall though a very nice rug, just not an accurate color description.Read More
The color is much lighter than in the picture and the dark parts on the actual rug are narrow. The quality seems nice.Read More
More brown than grey if that is what you're looking for. Very happy with my purchaseRead More
My first reaction was, "oh no, this is going to have to be returned". The color was not as expected and the gradient didn't match the photo either. However, unrolled completely and next to the furniture, I feel like it does work, but not how I expected it to. I think I'm going to keep it but it's more of a light brown, taupe, cream variation. No grey. Looks nice on dark wood floors as the ends are darker and the middle is brighter so it's not too stark against it like a completely light rug would be.Read More
Great rug but packaged poorly. When we received the rug a portion of the plastic wrap was off and there was some minor damage...Overstock did offer to replace or give us a discount with no hassleRead More
Gorgeous Taupey rug. More taupe than gray, but it would work with a brownish gray walls.Read More
