Qty.

Double bright red sheepskin & lambskin wool rugs made in New Zealand. Made to order allow 1 week subject to availability.


Average sheepskin dimensions 60cm x 180cm. Dyed bright red sheepskin rugs are warm, soft and fluffy. This rug uses two sheepskins that are sewn together to form a long rug from expertly matched New Zealand lambskins. Protect this red colour from direct or bright reflected UV sunlight or fading may occur. 

Lambskins are perfect for a bedroom down the side of the bed. Imagine stepping out of bed onto these soft warm wool rugs. And they can also be used in a hallway or in front of a fireplace to great effect.

Although these sheep rugs are predominantly used on the floor as luxurious floor 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.

Protect this dyed red sheepskin from harsh direct sunlight to increase lifespan and reduce fading.

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.

For full sheepskin washing instructions with photos please read our article.

Washing
Machine or hand wash your sheepskin in warm water (38°C/100°F) using a mild liquid detergent. Spin to remove excess water. Colours should be professionally dry-cleaned only. North America customers - We recommend the use of our Woolskin wool wash. Please only use detergents which are non-alkaline, non-iconic and do not contain biological enzymes: Do not use Woolite or laundry detergents such as Tide.

Drying
Dry your Sheepskin flat or on a line and stretch to shape while damp. Keep away from direct sunlight and artificial heat. You can tumble dry your Sheepskin on a low heat setting. 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.

Brushing
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. A fine wire brush or sheepskin carding brush.
