While this a beautiful rug, nice color and carved edges! I have not stop picking up wool lint balls after wool lint balls. When I try to sweep it to think I will finally get all the loose wool lint out, I realize I have created a mini-sized tumble weed in my apartment!! Wow! How exciting! Don't know if I can send this back, but I will definitely try, I am totally annoyed! I think this rug is going to shed until it has ball spots!
