Handmade leather free wool rugs - alternative to the traditional sheepskin rug
Felted wool rugs are leather-free alternative to the traditional sheepskin rug. The sheep graze happily without their winter coats in our summer pasture. Wet felted by hand from natural white Skudde sheep wool - one of the oldest sheep breeds in Europe. Skudde sheep are grown in our farm under the most natural conditions and in line with animal welfare standards. While sheering, my husband tried his best to preserve the structure and shape of the fur. Before felting, I carefully turned the rug over so that all the fur would stay in its place, then, I felted its inside. The rug, felted this way, preserves its unique shape and structure: it has shorter hair at the center, which is typical of the sheep’s back, longer hair at its sides and shorter curls at the neck part of the sheep rug. Just like every sheep in a flock is exceptional and unique, every sheep rug has no other similar. And, above all, you have a sheepskin for which no animal was killed.
