  • Heavenly soft lambskin pelt rug can be used anywhere in your home that you want to feel ultimate comfort!  This rug is fully washable.  It makes a nice rug beside your bed, good for keeping your toes warm on the couch, great for social distancing outdoor gatherings on the ground or outdoor chair, great for babies and pets...it's just great! All natural and professionally tanned from a lamb that was processed for its meat from Partridge Hill Farm in Woolrich, Maine. All parts put to good use. You will receive the exact one-of-a-kind pelt shown here. Measures approximately 31" x 18". Care instructions:  Machine or hand-wash (we strongly suggest hand washing for the sake of your washing machine as well as the hide) in cold or warm water (do not exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit.) We recommend the use of Kookaburra or Eucalan Wool Wash. Do not use Woolite, laundry detergents, or fabric softeners. For Hand Washing: Put the skin in the tub and hold it under the water until the skin is thoroughly saturated with water. Gently churn the skin to get the soap moving around the fibers and let soak for 5-10 minutes then rinse. Gently squeeze out excess water. For Machine Washing: Set to gentle cycle. Once skin is thoroughly soaked, allow machine to churn briefly. The more churning, the more the wool will mat. Let soak 5-10 minutes. Spin cycle briefly to remove excess water. Rinse if necessary. Dry. NEVER tumble dry- this will mat the wool more. Line dry (not in the sun) or dry flat (wool side down) and stretch to shape while damp. Brush with soft wire brush when wet, when damp, and when dry. Do not tumble dry.  Heat will damage sheepskins, resulting is shrinking and hardening of pelt.
