Ivory white grey tipped double sheepskin rug made in New Zealand. We do our best to match two skins but you will always see a faint join line.
Each sheepskin is unique and the amount of grey can vary from light & subtle to dark & strong. If you have a preference please let us know and we will see what is available.
Double sheepskin dimensions 60cm x 180cm. Wool pile height is a minimum of 5cm (2”). A double ended long sheepskin rug.
Natural woolly sheepskin rugs are soft and fluffy. This rug uses two sheepskins that are sewn together to form a long rug from expertly matched New Zealand sheepskins.
Protect this dyed grey tip sheepskin from harsh direct sunlight to increase lifespan and reduce fading.
They are perfect for a bedroom down the side of the bed. Imagine stepping out of bed onto these soft warm rugs. And they can also be used in a hallway or in front of a fireplace to great effect.
Although these rugs are predominantly used on the floor as luxurious coverings, they can also be used as a sofa throw, on beds, or draped over any type of chair. They are particularly good in armchairs or across the seat of a sofa in the winter.
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.
Machine or hand wash your sheepskin in warm water (38°C/100°F) using the Gorgeous Creatures Woolskin Wash. Spin to remove excess water.
Dry your sheepskin flat or on a line and stretch to shape while damp. Keep away from direct sunlight and artificial heat. Tumble dry your sheepskin on LOW.
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 using a sheepskin carding brush.
