Faux Sheepskin Rug


Decorating with sheepskin is a trend that never goes out of time and right now it is absolutely right. A sheepskin gives a warm and snug feeling in the room and it is especially lovely during the winter months. Put the sheepskin on the sofa or armchair, it’s nice to sit on and it can also be used as Plaid if you feel frozen. Even as a carpet it is really nice-in front of the fireplace it contributes to a cozy feeling and as a bed mat it is wonderful to put your feet on during cold mornings. A skin is also delightfully soft and cuddly for the baby to sleep on. In that case, it is most often lambskin used. As a rule, the sheepskin is larger than the lambskin, has a little coarser wool and thicker leather. While the lambskin, as a rule, is uniformly colored, the sheepskin has larger color shifts and contrasts. Sometimes the sheepskin coat has an eel, that is, a longitudinal dark stripe in the middle of the skin. You can of course also let the sheepskin come back in smaller details of the room, for example on pillows.

Easy to keep wool clean

Wool is natural dirt repellent. To keep the skin clean, it is easiest to vacuum it regularly and shake it outdoors every now and then. If you accidentally spill the damper, you can wipe it with a damp sponge. If you need to wash it, keep in mind to avoid detergents with phosphates, bleach and other harsh chemicals that damage the skin. There are mild so-called Wool shampoos if possible well to use on sheepskin. Follow the washing advice-usually it is good to wash in machine on wool programs. Hand washing is another gentler option.
