Quality Sheepskin Products made in New Zealand. Usually made to order - allow 5 days before dispatch. We hand select matching sheepskins for your rug. It will be well worth the wait.


Approximate dimensions 214cm x 180cm. Natural Longwool sheepskin rugs are soft and fluffy. This rug uses eight sheepskins that are sewn together to form a rug from expertly matched New Zealand sheepskins. 

A NOTE ABOUT FREIGHT:- This product must travel by courier because of its value and size. Even though this website allows you to select air post, we can not send it this way because it is too large and over the maximum value allowed for International air post. 

This is perfect for a lounge, den or bedroom. And they can also be used in a home theater room or in front of a fireplace to great effect. Although these rugs are predominantly used on the floor as luxurious coverings this can also be draped over a bed.

This rug can be protected with MicroSeal protective spray to make it more hard wearing - talk to us about this option. This does not mean that it will never need cleaning. But if you spill something terrible it will help to prevent this being a major problem and allow you time to have the rug cleaned professionally. 

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 or a brush with a wool carding brush. 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 woolskin sheepskin cleaner. 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. We recommend our Gorgeous Creatures Woolskin Wash.

Drying
Dry your Sheepskin flat and stretch to shape while damp. Keep away from direct sunlight and artificial heat. You can tumble dry your Sheepskin on a low/cool heat setting if it will fit into a tumble dryer. 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.
