Pile coming off new wool rug

Just bought beautiful (and rather expensive) 4x6 wool rug. When I sweep with ordinary broom, tufts of wool pile come off. Is this normal? The photo shows just this morning's sweeping - I'm a bit worried that it will be bald in a year's time. Very grateful for guidance.

Yes, I would say that's normal. The same thing happens the first several times new towels go through the laundry.
