Biblical Sheepskin Rugs
Like a flock of sheep that are even shorn, which come up from the washing; whereof every one bear twins and none is barren among them. This line is from the Song of Songs, one of the most revered books in the bible. Yes, sheep are a very biblical animal. They are grouped and docile, so that they easily follow when led. Sheep are symbolically full of meaning. They are pure and innocent, largely due to their white color and easy demeanor. They are easily frightened too. They symbolize a simple, pastoral life, full of pleasantries. And they are great for sheepskin rugs, which are an ancient luxury, much like gold rings set with beryl, pomegranates and flowers. Sheepskin rugs were long used as a way to appreciate the comforts of a life in the wild. Wool is hypoallergenic, it resists static electricity as well as fire. When a sheep would die in the olden days, shepherds used the pelt of the animal for coats and sheepskin boots but also as sheepskin rugs. A sheepskin rug is something everyone would benefit from. It is so soft, so natural, so old and long associated with human use that it is in the oldest and most popular book ever written.
