Terrible Shedding, But Hopeful
 from Annapolis, MD,  Nov 13, 2009

I ordered this rug knowing that it might shed terribly. (from the other reviews and experience with buying discounted wool rugs). On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the 100% wool garbage you get at the cheaper deep discount sites, and 10 being the best full price luxury wool...this rugs comes in as a 7. That's pretty good for the price, hence the 4 stars. It's really attractive and soft with adequate cushion. It is shedding badly however, but I think that will stop after repeated vacuuming. One troubling thing is that the fibers that "pop up" after gentle vacuuming are full, in-tact fibers coming loose from the foundation of the rug. This is BAD. It leaves a hole where the fiber came out. Each individual occurrence is imperceptible but collectively (over time) it could be a disaster. If I had access to the physical rug when making my purchase decision, this probably would have been a deal breaker. Since it is large and cumbersome to transport, I will keep it and hope for the best. It does look really pretty. I think it's great for decorating a room on a budget.
