Gorgeous Creatures sell beautiful natural sheepskin rugs from New Zealand and Europe. It is really hard to know the exact breed of natural dark sheepskin rugs, but common New Zealand sheep breeds like Perendale, Merino and Romney can all produce lambs with darker coloured wool.
In a herd of 5000 white Perendale, Romney or Merino sheep occasionally a lamb is born who is black, brown, beige or grey. It must be a very ancient recessive wool colour gene. There are ancient breeds that are always darker colours. In New Zealand these natural black sheep are still rare and in the minority. Most farmers want their flock to be white.
These natural sheepskin rugs are a delight to use in your home decor. The colours are unique and random adding texture and softness in both touch and colour. Use natural brown sheepskins draped over furniture like leather sofas or on the floor as a soft warm rug.
Each sheepskin rug is unique and should be treated as a rare gem. Chocolate brown is the main sheepskin colour but shades of coffee, mocha, grey, caramel and cream can also occur in nature.
