Cleaning & Care

Things To Know
  • Because wool is a natural fiber, some shedding may initially occur until loose fibers work their way out of the rug.
  • Because our rugs are hand-crafted, loose yarn may sprout. These can easily be trimmed evenly with the pile.
  • Indentions left by furniture legs are easily steamed out of wool rugs.
