Not me, after some deliberation and getting a bunch of samples. The fibers are just way too long. Reminscent of the hair on those treasure troll dolls. I ended up with a 100% wool shag rug, and I tell you, I don't know if it's the quality of the wool, but that thing sheds like crazy (and consequently a pain in the ass to clean up after). Wool is suppose to be good quality from India. I have wool balls all over my hardwood floor that I have to sweep or vacuum with great frequency. I wish I just got something that was either a blend or synthetic to eliminate this shedding. It's so annoying, I'm thinking of just getting rid of my current rug and getting a different one. My advice, if buying 100% wool shag, make sure shedding is minimal or just get synthetic, you'll thank me later.
