Remember how psyched I was when we got this rug free from our friends? When they gave it to us, it was because their daughter was pulling at it and eating the fuzz. Well, they thought she was pulling at it, but she got a bad rap because this thing sheds like a mo'fo all on its own.
It is wool and I know that wool rugs shed, but this was extreme. It was driving Marc insane. We are used to the occassional cat hair tumbleweed, but mix it with excessive amounts of wool fibers and it was even getting on my nerves (and I'm a complete slob.)
It finally had to go when a wool fiber got stuck to Franca's eyeball. Cool or not, don't mess with my daughter's cornea!
So now it is rolled up in the parlor like some big fat cigarette and MAN this thing is heavy and big. We will have to drive it to the dump OR.... we can unload it on craigslist. I'm thinking of posting it for free on craigslist with a full disclaimer and seeing if I get any suckers, err, I mean takers. :)
