A double natural ivory sheepskin rug is made from two whole sheepskins sewn together tail to tail to make a longer wool rug. Bred in New Zealand.
Double sheepskin rug average dimensions are 60cm x 180cm. Wool pile height is a minimum of 5cm (2”).
Natural long-wool sheepskin rugs are soft & fluffy. These ivory sheepskins are the natural white colour of a New Zealand sheep (a blush of creamy ivory).
These double sheepskins are perfect as a soft throw over an armchair or sofa, or at the end of a bed. A double ended sheepskin rug for extra length.
Use two double sheepskin rugs on either side of a bed in the master bedroom. And they can also be used in a hallway or in front of a fireplace to great effect.
Although these sheepskin rugs are predominantly used on the floor as luxurious coverings, they can also be used as a sofa throw, on the end of beds, or draped over any type of seat.
Your carefully selected sheepskin may have been tightly packaged for the journey home and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibers 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.
