rugs are the original wool rug -- But where should you
place one for best results?
Sheepskin rugs are one of the original styles of wool rugs,
and have been used by people all over the world for centuries.
They are available with a short or long pile, typically up
to 3", and from single skins to huge octo's (eight single
skins joined together). One of the largest exporters of sheepskin
rugs is New Zealand and the top quality wool rugs they produce
are famous worldwide.
To produce sheepskin rugs the raw skins are first trimmed,
machined and then washed by hand before the tanning process
begins. The tanned fleece is then dried, combed by both machine
and hand before a final polish enhances the natural luster
of the finished wool rug.
Sheepskin rugs are ideal for use as a floor rug in a dining
room, by the front of a fire, by the side of your bed for
a luxurious experience each morning, or as a throw rug draped
over your favorite chair or piece of furniture. These versatile
wool rugs can even be used in your car. Wherever you choose
to use one of these wonderful natural fiber rugs it will add
a feeling of warmth and luxury that is hard to beat.
