Sheep wool is durable, natural, renewable material that repels dirt. Our new rugs are washed after they are ready and vintage rugs are washed before they are shipped. Often wiping is enough to get rid of dirt. Especially the new rugs might leave off fluff so active vacuuming is recommended. The sheep wool likes both frost and sun. If you wash your rug at home, use slightly warm water and natural soap. You can step and walk on the rug and fold it into heaps while washing. It is important that after washing the rug will be completely dried preferably in the sun for a few days.
