The Ultimate Care Guide for your Sheepskin Rug

The Ultimate Care Guide for your Sheepskin Rug

A Sheepskin rug, whether Icelandic or British, are a luxurious addition to any home. To ensure your sheepskin rug remains in pristine condition and continues to provide warmth and comfort, please follow our recommended care guidelines:

1. Regular Shaking and Fluffing:

To maintain the rug's softness and fluffiness, give it a gentle shake outdoors regularly. This helps remove dust and restores the natural loft of the fleece.

2. Vacuuming:

Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment or a low-suction setting to remove loose dirt and debris. Always vacuum in the direction of the hair, not against it, to prevent damage.

3. Spot Cleaning:

For small stains or spills, blot the affected area immediately with a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible. Do not rub, as this can push the stain deeper into the fibers.

4. Dry Cleaning:

Consult a professional dry cleaner experienced in cleaning sheepskin rugs for more significant stains or thorough cleaning. Never attempt to wash the rug in a washing machine or submerge it in water.

5. Brushing:

Gently brush the sheepskin using a soft-bristle brush or a sheepskin-specific brush. This helps maintain the rug's texture and prevents matting of the fibers.

6. Sunlight and Moisture:

Avoid exposing your sheepskin rug to direct sunlight for extended periods, as this can cause fading. Additionally, keep it away from excessive moisture to prevent mold growth.

7. Rotation:

To ensure even wear, periodically rotate the rug or change its position within the room. This helps distribute foot traffic and sunlight exposure evenly.

8. Pet Care:

If you have pets, keep an eye on their interactions with the rug. While sheepskin is naturally resilient, it can be susceptible to damage from sharp claws and excessive chewing.

9. Storage:

If you need to store your sheepskin rug, ensure it is clean and completely dry. Store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid folding the rug, as this can lead to creases.

10. Professional Advice:

If you have any concerns or questions about caring for your sheepskin rug, don't hesitate to reach out to us for specific guidance.

By following these care instructions, you can enjoy the beauty and comfort of your Icelandic or British sheepskin rug for years to come. Proper maintenance will help preserve its natural beauty and softness, making it a cozy and stylish addition to your home.
