Sheepskin Rugs - What are their benefits?
Ultimate Comfort and Beauty
Sheepskin rugs have been around for so long and loved in homes around the world. But why? Well foremost they add texture and colour to any room; whether it is a Scandinavian interior that needs some cosiness, or a vintage interior that lacks some lighter colours - a classic white sheepskin rug will do the trick. Not only that, sheepskin rugs come in dyed colours, various sizes, diverse fleece types and even sheepskin accessories such as chair pads and cushions that are sure to beautify any corner of the home, big or small. But gorgeous appearance aside, they are exceptionally comfy. Their springy fleece accommodates resistance free movement as the sheepskin outer layer of wool is remarkably smooth making it wonderfully comfy whether against a chair, bench, mattress or simply underfoot. What's more sheepskins contain natural moisturisers such as lanolin to sooth your skin all year round.
Sheepskins have proven to regulate body temperature. Whether it is a newborn baby that cannot yet naturally regulate their own temperature or an adult who needs to keep blood circulation at it's best, a natural, traditional sheepskin rug can work wonders.
Hard to see with the naked eye but dust mites, mold and nasty bed bugs are a problem in many homes. But sheepskin is a natural, cheap way to deter them. This is because sheepskin fleece draws moisture away from the skin - which is a primary factor that allows bacteria to thrive. A sheepskin can do this job for many years, just brush the sheepskin out regularly and professionally dry clean at least once a year.
Sheepskins last for years
Unlike some other natural hides, sheepskins are the toughest of the lot. Their wool does not shed because it is firmly attached to the leather. They are water and flame resistant - argued to be the least flammable fabric in modern day use. Just brush your hide regularly and shake it vigorously and you can be sure to see a sheepskin rug as beautiful and in shape as the first time you bought it!
