Sourced from sheep in the west of Ireland, these sheepskin rugs are ideal for the floor, or thrown over a chair. The therapeutic properties of the natural sheepskin are plentiful; the natural hollow fibres act allows the rug to control body temperatures without overheating, making it perfect for pain relief and warmth. The sheepskins are also naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, as the lanolin in the wool has a self-cleaning quality which prevents bacterial growth.
Our sheepskins have been handpicked by Eamonn in Connaught Hide & Wool to be a generous size, as close to 120cm x 80cm as possible.
Caring for your sheepskin: Shake it out regularly and brush using a stiff wire brush. You can hand-wash it in warm water (30 degrees) using detergent, not soap, spin dry or drain well and hang outdoors to air dry. Or get it dry cleaned.
