Care & Fit

Special Considerations

  • All wool rugs will shed, as it is part of natural "self-cleaning" process inherent to wool.
  • Styles with a tightly spun yarn will shed less than those with an open weave or pile.
  • Vacuum a new rug frequently to help eliminate any loose fibers.

    Customer comments about Cable 5'7"x7'10" Rug:

    The cable rug I purchased is lush and beautiful and has completed the room in exactly the way that I'd hoped it would. The other pieces in the room are all simple and modern with clean lines of natural materials and neutral colors. I maintain a no shoe policy in my home which my guest are even more appreciative of when they have the pleasure of walking on the blush cable in my living room. I for one could not be happier with my purchase and with the fine service of those working at room and board. All I can say is thanks.

    good rug, wintery feeling, sheds

    Customer comments about Cable 8'2"x11'6" Rug:

    I really liked the rug -- attractive, soft on the feet (in a wool-soft kind of way) -- but I ended up returning for an Arden Low Loop because cable rug definitely sheds and is tricky to vacuum, I found. Low Loop rug feels softer to me and much easier to clean -- look is much different. Cable rug has a cozy, winter/fall sort of feel. Low loop feels more modern/contemporary.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Excellent.

      I am a designer and purchased this for a client. Color and texture are lovely and they are very happy with it. It has shown some signs of being "used" but that just makes it even nicer......in my opinion. I was told it could shed a lot. I don't really hear from my clients that that is happening.

      Update. Shedding over!

      By junipero

      from LA, CA

      Customer comments about Cable 6'7"x9'10" Rug:

      I just wanted to post an update. It's been about three months of living with the rug and the shedding has mostly stopped. At first it was intense but with weekly vacuuming and just every day life on it, the worst is clearly over. And it still looks great.

      Customer comments about Cable 8'2"x11'6" Rug:

      As others have mentioned, this rug sheds like crazy and god help anyone who sits on it with dark clothes. They get up looking like they have been wrestling with a dog. That said, I know it will get better with time as I have had a shedding rug before and I love this rug in all other respects.

      I bought it after comparing it with the nearly idenitical ones at Restoration Hardware. The quality of this one is better with a tighter, denser weave and more consistant edges.

      It is warm, comfy, plush and a great neutral backdrop, yet it still has a nice handmade character.

      And as for the comments regarding furniture not sitting easily on it, I have several large chairs that sit half on & half off and it is not a problem as long as the chairs are good sized and have 4 legs rather than connected rails along the bottom. The two chairs I have like that need to either be on or off as otherwise the back half of the chair "floats" over the floor. I checked it out in the showroom before buying as well and the only other issue would be with a smaller, lightweight chair which might be wobbly if all 4 legs were not on the rug.

      You have to vacuum it in the beginning to take away the initial layers of shedding wool but after that it is a great carpet for the price. Really soft.

        This rug is amazing. It is so thick and soft that it feels great under your feet and looks great contrasted against my hardwood floors. You have to use a gentle setting when you vacuum it so that you don't cause fraying or shedding, but as long as you know that going in, you will love this rug.

        • Cable 6'7"x9'10" Rug

          Q:

          How do you recommend vacuuming this rug. I am having a head time cleaning it without pulling the wool apart.
          Asked on 10/29/2014 by Am from Seattle

          1 answer

          • Design Associate

            A:

            Vacuum regularly to remove dirt and debris. Using the beater bar when vacuuming your rug may cause damage. Turn off the beater bar or choose the "bare floor" setting on your vacuum. Avoid pulling any loose yarns. If necessary, clip the yarn even with the pile surface.

            A:

            We recommend using a rug pad with any of our rugs. It will increase the life of the rug and can also help to protect the floor surface underneath.

          Hi,

          Is this rug treated with anything, such as fire retardant chemicals, stain repellent, etc.? What about R&B's other wool rugs?

          Thanks!

            A:

            Room and Board rugs are handcrafted of 100% premium quality wool, which is a natural and renewable resource that requires no chemical treatment for stain resistance or non-flammability, making it a healthy choice for all indoor environments.
