Parker Neutral Wool 5x8 Rug is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft on the feet and perfect for our space We bought this rug before Christmas, and based on previous reviews were a little hesitant due to the shed factor, but we really loved the look and feel, and the price was right so we bought it. As with any wool rug, it does shed pretty good at first. We were told not to use the carpet setting on the vacuum, however, we found that it needed a good vacuuming to get rid of the excess shed and now it's totally fine. The color is perfect with our walnut coffee table and brown leather sofas. We have 3 cats and they love to sit on the rug and do not scratch on it like they did on the previous one. The feel of the rug is very luxurious on bare feet and it has a nice warmth to it. We've had this rug now for about 5 months and are very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biggest Mistake It looks and feels good but that is it. We bought two 11x14 rugs 6 months ago. It sheds far more than described. I have had wool rugs before that shed but this is horrible. The fibers get on everything and just two days after I vacuum there are "fir balls" everywhere. It fills my vacuum container completely and clogs its. This is a huge expensive mistake and C&B should be honest about it in their description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Quality I purchased the 10x14 for my very large living room in a very small ranch. My home is open plan and this rug transformed my entire home. It lies on top of very dark wood floors and lightened up the entire house ... the rug color is lovely not too white, not too gray, not too beige...it looks modern but goes with my classic comfortable furniture. It is lush, soft, thick, high grade wool -- I've never felt a rug like this in my entire time of decorating. You just want to walk barefoot and smooch your toes into the rug .... the vacuuming of the rug is surprisingly easy and it does not shed as much for me as what everyone is commenting on. I vacuum the rug about once a week and it looks so wonderful before I vacuum and even more beautiful after...it has not lost any of it's freshness to it and that is because nothing was spared making the rug...the manufacturer did not skimp on ensuring this was to be the most dense rug you will ever own...buy it you will love it and want to buy more of them for your home!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sheds more than 'a little' and irregularly-sized We bought this rug about 3 months ago (sadly, just outside of the 90-day return policy...). Our house looks like we have tumbleweeds because of this rug—and we dust & vacuum often. Also, the rug is irregularly sized... that image of the sample swatch? That's what our rug looks like. It looks off-center, regardless of how we position it and our furniture. We spent a lot of time finding the right rug in which to invest. Our cheapo big-box store stand-in wore better than this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy this rug This rugs sheds like crazy as other reviewers have mentioned. There are plenty of other options in the market; don't drive yourself crazy with this one. It's expensive and a headache.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed We purchased this 8X12 rug one year ago and loved it--at first. It is still shedding a lot and I agree with a previous reviewer, it now looks more like a shag rug than the cushiony uneven pile when first purchased. It have even lost its color "tones". It is in our main living room area, and looks very worn as compared the identical rug used in a much less used area of our home. If I could return it, I would.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much shedding Purchased this rug about 4-5 weeks ago. It looks nice - there is a lot of color variation in the rug which I like. But it sheds a lot. It fills up my Dyson Animal container twice just to get through vacuuming the rug once. Even 4 weeks later the shedding it still pretty significant - It has gone down - so I have hope that it will continue to lessen over time. I wish I would of read reviews when I was purchasing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice rug I have purchased the sample for this rug. I like the color, and texture of this rug. It is difficult to find a rug that is 6'x9'. Thinking of purchasing this rug.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love/Hate relationship I've had this rug for 2 years now and it is still shedding!!! We use to vacuum this rug with the brush spinning but I read a tip to turn off then spinning brush to minimize shedding. Nope! It didn't work. It's a great looking rug and the thickness is great but I HATE the fact that there is wool fibers EVERYWHERE in my home. I have dark wood floors throughout the home so you can imagine the nuisance! it shows no sign of stopping. Crate & barrel, please admit that there is something defective with this rug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plush and beautiful We bought the 10' x 14' size for our Great Room. The floor is a grayish-brown hickory and walls are soft gray. The rug pulls in both colors. Unlike other reviewers, I do not think the carpet sheds excessively. Any new carpet is going to shed. We've had the carpet for almost 5 months, and it sheds very little at this point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love Crate & Barrel...Hate This Rug's Shedding My boyfriend and I purchased this rug a few months ago for our new apartment. The rug looks great, feels amazing (very soft), and is a perfect neutral color that matches everything; however, it has been shedding a *ridiculous* amount. We have followed instructions and suggestions to a T, vacuuming the rug and giving it time to shed since it's new. Nothing has changed. This rug is in...every corner of the apartment, on all my socks, on anything that comes in contact with the rug, on anything that hasn't even come in contact with the rug! We absolutely love C&B and we've decorated practically our entire apartment with C&B (couch, armchair, pillows, coffee table, media console....the list goes on); unfortunately, this rug has not held up to the high quality we had come to expect from C&B, and sadly, we feel that we have wasted nearly $1k purchasing this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful texture and color! I bought this rug two years ago in the 10x14 size. It looks beautiful on my new hickory flooring and has not shown dirt due to the many colors of the strands of wool. It did shed a ton when it was new, but not after about 4 months of vacuuming. Now I am ready to send it out for professional cleaning. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will hold up to the process, as it was VERY expensive. I have noticed that over time it is taking on more of a shag look rather than the original deep, cushiony pile . I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super, soft, neutral area rug We bought this rug for our new home's family room. It is so warm and nice under foot and we love the subtle difference in color in the wool. It does really shed a lot in the beginning and though they recommend vacuuming every week, we felt the need to vacuum almost daily at first. We are in the second month now and can see an obvious reduction in the amount of shedding. I definitely would buy this rug again. We love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and comfortable. We bought this rug a few months ago and love it. It goes well with anything and is perfect for our family room. The only issue is that it has sheds a lot.
