Rated 5 out of 5 by Cath9 Crescent braided wool rug
I purchased this rug over 2 years ago, despite some negative reviews, because the size, shape and colors were just what I was looking for. I have waited to review it until I saw how it held up. I put it inside the house where we enter from the garage. This rug has held up beautifully. No pills, no separation of coils despite frequent wiping of feet and vacuuming up Santa Fe grit and dirt. I recommend this rug wholeheartedly.

It's amazing how one product can be viewed as so good by some buyers, and so bad by others. Maybe there is not consistent quality control by the company. I agree with others who have posted that the braided runners must have a rubber backing. They do slide around. But even more troublesome is that the yarns are fraying and coming up. We are two adults, no kids, no pets. The rugs don't get lots of traffic, and we wear slippers indoors. Yet, after 2 months of use, the yarns are popping up. I have cut them, but wonder how much longer I want to do that. I wanted so badly to have this product, made in the USA, be great. I am disappointed.

Beautiful rug! We bought this for our family room and couldn't be happier. Granted its only been in our house for a month, but we shall see if it stands the test of time. Regardless, with Bean's lifetime warranty, it will be replaced if it does not last. You can't argue with that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Grantman Pilling!
I purchased 5 of these rugs about 3 years ago. Currently, they are stacked under beds because they are constantly pilling, shedding wool all over my hardwood floors. They might be ok in a guest room, under a coffee table or other low traffic area, but unless you want to spend your days cleaning wool partices witha vacuum cleaner, don't place these things where people walk. Our home environment is two adults, no kids, and no pets. House is only occupied 8 months out of the year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by endupus Not soft at all...
I had very high expectations on this rug but I should have paid attention to the previous review. Since it is a big item, I didn't want to go thru the hassle of returning.

Seems my history with SOFT wool is albeit flawed.
This is not soft

We love these rugs. They are terrific on wood and tile floors. They look great and last and last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzieQZZZ Love LLBean's 100% Guarantee!
We ordered three of the Bean's Braided Wool Rugs (7'x9'; and 2 2'3"x4'). We love how these all wool rugs looked initially. Then the rugs began to fade. LLBean's excellent customer service took care of the problem and has replaced them. Thank you LLBean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by SuzieQZZZ Quality is disappointing - Fading Colors
We purchased three of the Bean's Braided Bright Multi rugs (sizes 7x9, and two 2'3"x4'). These rugs are expensive but we trusted LLBean and expected them to last for many years. The rugs are only 4 years old now and they look like they are 15 yrs old! I had forgotten they were wool and thought the fading was because they were 'cotton'. This fading is NOT due to lack of care or UV damage. We live in the Pacific NW plus we are very careful with our home/furnishings. We are very disappointed in LLBean. We purchased these rugs with confidence due to LLBean quality guarantee.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 68954 Only my smaller rugs are still in good shape
About 2 1/2 years ago I bought one 7x9 braided oval rug and it is still in good shape. I liked it so well that I ended up buying 2 more oval braided rugs a couple of months later, another 7x9 and an 8x11. The smaller rugs are still usable but the larger rug started coming apart at a seam. Then after I had it professionally cleaned along with one of the 7x9 rugs, the 8x11 rug fell apart in another seam and it lost it's firmness and became so filmsy feeling that it wasn't the same rug at all. You might think it was due to the cleaning, but the other 7x9 rug cleaned beautifully. I am so disappointed that I will never buy another rug like it again from LLBean.
