Shedding is a natural characteristic of a deep pile rug, and carpets with a wool content therefore it is not deemed to be a fault. It is also common with Acrylic and Wool rugs and should be taken into consideration when choosing a product suitable rug for your home.
Cut pile carpets sometimes show a shading effect that appears as light and dark patches due to different pile direction. This effect can be exaggerated by such things as room lighting, and certain types of traffic across the carpet. Shading is a natural phenomenon which cannot be totally eliminated in the production process, and is therefore not considered to be a manufacturing fault.
