I bought this runner for our long hallway that connects the bedrooms to the main living space a few months ago - and I LOVE and HATE it all at once. It sheds. No really - I mean it SHEDS. ALL THE TIME! I Vacuum...and then vacuum...and then vacuum some more. IT STILL SHEDS! I'm losing my mind over this shedding rug! But I Love how it looks down our long hallway! We have a love/hate relationship and I'm hoping it will quit shedding so I can just Love it!
