Safavieh Heritage rugs worth it? Rug here!

I would like a new rug for my great room area and need a 12 x 15. I have a sedate blue and tan 9 x 12 in there now. It's just "there", nothing exciting or that you would notice/remember.

I have been looking for a new rug but haven't found anything because of the size needed. Not many places carry that big in a store. Also I am inherently thrifty and can't see spending a lot of $$ on a rug that I may tire of.

Safavieh has some wool rugs on a few sites that I am considering but they get mixed reviews. I'm not sure if some of it is just the buyers (often uneducated) expectations or not. I only have one other wool rug and it does not shed but many people said these rugs shed.

Lowes has a few on their web that would make returning to the store easy if I didn't like them. Price point on these rugs are approx $800. Some said that they would be bare in areas from shedding and wear in 5-7 years so if you were ok with that, go ahead and get them.

Thoughts?
