Decorating with Natural Sheepskin Rugs
You have probably heard a lot of talk about the benefits of genuine sheepskin rugs, but what the heck are they?
Simply put, sheepskin rugs are one of nature's most versatile and gorgeous products.
Benefits of Natural sheepskin
Sheepskin is said to act as a natural thermostat. This is because sheepskin's hollow fibers are naturally insulating and help regulate body temperature. These hollow fibers allow it to provide warmth without causing overheating.
The hollow fibers also absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture, keeping them dry and smell-free!
Genuine sheepskin is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Sheepskin fibers contain lanolin, a natural oil great for our skin, with self-cleaning qualities that prevent bacteria growth. In addition, the spiral shape of the sheepskin fiber collects and traps particles floating in the air. This helps to reduce airborne allergens and dust.

Sheepskin rugs are plush, soft and add a unique and undeniably appealing texture to your home decor. Sheepskin rugs are available in a variety of colors and shapes. The most popular choice is a small white sheepskin rug for an accent decoration, followed closely by our large sheepskin area rugs. Our customers use sheepskins all over their homes! Some use the octo-sheepskins as their main living room rug, while others use our double sheepskin rugs as hallway runners. If you look at design magazines or interior decorators' Instagram accounts, the possibilities are endless when decorating with sheepskin.
