This is a lovely rug. Very pretty, but very poor quality. I ordered one and sent it back after a few weeks, as it was not only shedding copiously (in the vacuum and on our bodies), but there were numerous pieces of yarn sticking out (as some of the other reviewers stated). The second one arrived, and although I had hoped that the first one was an aberration, this one is doing the same thing. As it is within the return period, this one is being sent back as well, because it is already a mess after several weeks! The quality of the rug aside, however, I would like to commend Overstock for FANTASTIC customer service in helping me arrange the returns. They are incredibly courteous and accommodating.
