Nice rug, but sheds terribly
I've owned this rug for about a month now (I bought the 240x170 version). It's a nice colour, and the texture is lovely and cosy, but my goodness does it shed a lot ! Pretty much every day I've had to sweep my living room with a dustpan to clear up all the little hairballs that gather by the skirting. I was hoping it would settle down after a few days, but i'm still waiting. Oh, don't ever think about sitting or lying on this rug if you're wearing black - you'll be covered in little white hairs when you stand up. I still like my rug, but I wish they could do something about all the loose fibres...

Had to have this rug as it was just the right colour (putty) and just the right size (the smallest one) that I'd been looking for. It is very nice, but I do think it's rather expensive; I may have thought twice about buying it if I hadn't had some vouchers to put towards it. A warning - it is very thick so you have to be careful not to trip over it! (Or is it just me?!)

This is a quality 100% wool rug. You get what you pay for. Heavy and thick, it's textured finish adds interest to my wooden floor. Lovely statement piece. Excellent delivery service, arrived on the second day after ordering. Very pleased.

Beautiful, soft rug - sheds worse than a cat
We bought the rug in November 2012 to go with our lovely new floors - it was great for the first few weeks. We noticed only a little shedding to start with. We have a 3 and 5 year old who are always on the floor and love playing on the rug. in the last three weeks, we've had to hoover every other day to start with, and now every day to keep up with the rug. Even then, we're still picking up balls of fibre around the house as it is tracked around by the munchkins.... Would return it if we could find the receipt, despite it's luxurious feel, as it is worse than having a pet shedding in the house...(we have none). Sorry JL, not one of the better purchases.

The rug was delivered five days ago and is still fairly flat from being rolled and packaged, however it is gradually lifting and hopefully in the next few days it will look as thick and luxurious as the shop sample. Don't be put off by this comment it really is a beautiful rug and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Darwin Rug (Cream)
This rug is quite expensive, and it was for this reason that I was in two minds about purchasing it. However, having bought several cheaper versions from other retailers, which I ended up taking back because they were such poor quality, I thought I'd give this one a go. It really is a lovely rug and is fantastic quality. It's a very heavy rug with a deep, thick pile. I purchased this rug in cream and was very pleased as it's not a 'yellowy' cream like some of the rugs you can buy. It looks beautiful in the living room!
