Natural Longwool sheepskin rugs are soft and fluffy. This rug uses eight sheepskins that are sewn together to form a rug from expertly matched New Zealand sheepskins.
This is perfect for a lounge or bedroom. And they can also be used in a home theatre room or in front of a fireplace to great effect.
Although these rugs are predominantly used on the floor as luxurious coverings this can also be draped over a bed.
Your carefully selected Sheepskin may have been tightly packaged for the journey home and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibres are very resilient and will bounce back to their original springy appearance. A vigorous shake will help restore the soft, fluffy appearance of the wool. Any fold marks from packaging will disappear once the skin has been removed from the package for several days.
For full sheepskin washing instructions with photos please read our blog.
Machine or hand wash your sheepskin in warm water (38°C/100°F) using a mild liquid detergent. Spin to remove excess water. Colours should be professionally drycleaned only. North America customers - We recommend the use of Pure Castile, biodegradable camp soaps or Eucalan Wool wash. Please only use detergents which are non-alkaline, non-iconic and do not contain biological enzymes: Do not use
Woolite or laundry detergents such as Tide.
Dry your Sheepskin flat or on a line and stretch to shape while damp. Keep away from direct sunlight and artificial heat. Do not tumble dry your Sheepskin. Take care not to place the Sheepskin on a radiator, steam pipe or in front of a fan heater as this may damage the Sheepskin. Do not iron or bleach the Sheepskin.
After washing, the wool may revert back to its natural curly state. You can help restore the fluffy appearance by brushing the wool while it is wet and again when it is dry. A wire brush or comb is suitable like a poodle brush from a pet shop.
