Rated 3 out of 5
by Gallivanter Looks good and ages well but the shedding never ends.
Well I'm actually writing this review having owned this rug for 6 years now. I thought it might be useful to review how this rug has held up.
The rug was and still is a very good value buy, especially as I bought it on sale. Years on, the ombre color is still nice and the rug still feels very soft underfoot. The colors of the rug have definitely lightened over the years but I think that's the result of all the vacuuming of shedded wool, it hasn't been exposed to much direct sunshine. I actually prefer it as the original green ombre was too dark at the ends for my liking.
The only and ongoing issue is the shedding with this rug, it simply never stops. At some point point this rug will stop shedding only because it's absolutely threadbare, after 6 years of regular vacuuming, this rug is the gift that keeps on giving! We are finally replacing it and moving it away from our living area to a guest room, where hopefully lower foot traffic will decrease the shedding.
Ultimately, it's a very good price for a wool rug but if you don't want to be a slave to your vacuum cleaner for the life of the rug, you'll want to spend more money on a higher quality product. It won't be a rug that will last 20 years either. I have no regrets about my purchase however, it was a great price and still has some life left in it.

by Dayglodago Ombré is perfect.
Love this rug in my new remodeled bathroom. Not sure I would use a wool rug in a bathroom normally, but we don't have kids at home, so it works for us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dibs Nice color and plush but some quality issues
Got this rug in the 8 x 11 Light Brown. Arrived quickly, nice color/pattern (look on Momeni website for better photo) and plush underfoot, but have had this rug for about 6 weeks now and still lots of shedding. Fibers get on furniture and hardwood floor surrounding rug. We also get some balls of fluffy fibers stuck together (kind of like carpet tumbleweeds....) It is in the living room with only two people, so not in a high traffic area. Also, there were two quality issues. On two places of border, the binding has a cream color vs brown (really sticks out visually) and there is a place on rug where it looks like it was damaged by something that cut the fibers very short in a row of 3 spots. I didn't return the rug since it was so big, but someone was not watching the quality in this case. I wouldn't recommend this rug if you are sitting on the floor since the fibers would get on your clothes. Also not sure of long term durability. I am wondering if the rug will get bare in areas of higher use (due to shedding fibers). Only time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OITNR Better than I could have imagined!
After reading the reviews on this rug, I was torn- but honestly, it's a rug and you are going to have to vacuum it, so the piling is not really an issue for me. I bought the beautiful orange color- it's like a sunset and makes my grey walls pop! Very Modern and very comfy! I would absolutely say give this rug a try and yes, you will vacuum like you've never vacuumed before, but it's completely worth it- plus you'll be really clean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimInRaleigh Beautiful modern rug
The Momeni Metro Ombre Rug is beautiful and fits in very well with our modern decor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tiredofvacuuming This rug is very disappointing.
I have had this rug for less than a month. This is a black ombre rug that is black on the ends and is to gradually fade to various shades of grey in the middle. Instead, the middle looks like a dirty brown color and I have had guests tell me they thought the entire rug is blue. So, the colors are disappointing.
Secondly, this rug pile comes off in gobs, and there are rug fibers all over the hardwood floor next to it, as well as in piles on top of the rug. I run the vacuum daily, but the first time anyone sits down on the sofa, they are back. Always looks dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by decorbudget Perfect for my living room
The thickness, and quality of the rug is great. The color gradation is just enough to add interest, and the caramel is a delicious, warm, inviting color (that matches my cat). Be aware that the rug sheds a huge amount, and it may worry you whether there is enough rug left! But after filling my vacuum about 15 times, it seems to be getting better. I usually don't get a rug pad for such a thick rug, but wanted one for added insulation on a tile floor. I chose the non-rubberized felt pad. I love it and will never skip the pad again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ShoptiludropAB Looks great but sheds A LOT!!
This rug is difficult to rate because it is plush, feels nice, and looks great, but the shedding is horrible. The rug would be perfect if it weren't for the shedding. Like the other reviewer, I have taken at least 15-20 vacuum tanks of fuzz off this rug and it is still shedding. All of my clothes are covered in little pieces of the rug. It is worse than having a pet! It is getting better, but even now I have to dump my vacuum tank at least twice every time I vacuum it and I have had it for a couple of months.
