When shopping and comparing sheepskin rugs there are a variety of factors to consider. You can differentiate a premium sheepskin rug from lower-grade options by noticing the varieties of wool, leather, and craftsmanship available. Here are some attributes that you should look for in your sheepskin rug:
Density: the first determining factor is the most important because it is what we touch and feel, and that is the wool density. This refers to the number of wool fibers per square inch. Australian and New Zealand sheepskins consistently have the world's highest wool density because they have been selectively bred for their wool quality for over 200 years.
Loft: as a hollow fibre the "loft" represents the ability to stay straight and upright. Wool without a high Loft can get matted and become tangled and messy in appearance.
Length: wool length is another trait which is quickly noticeable. A high quality sheepskin should have a wool length of at least 2 inches (50mm), but preferably closer to 3 inches. Often a contributing but uncontrollable factor is the time of year and season that your sheepskin was produced.
Color: the color of the both wool and leather underside is usually only appealing for aesthetic reasons, but a consistent color with no imperfections or shading will indicate that the sheepskin was tanned and processed by a quality manufacturer.
Touch: a silky smooth touch and feel is another instant indication of a quality sheepskin pelt. Our sheepskins have luscious soft wool and extra soft cushioning that you will love to crinkle your toes into each morning.
Leather: the leather backing of a lambskin rug should also be considered. A smooth suede finish should be soft and supple when the hide is new. A dry or firm leather is a sign of inferior quality that you won't find in our sheepskin warehouse. It can also be a sign of a well-aged high quality sheepskin pelt that has not been properly maintained over the years. Although our sheepskin hides are machine washable and durable enough to withstand such treatment, washing any sheepskin will dry out some of the natural oils in the leather and the lanolin in the wool fur. We don't recommend frequent washing of decor rugs. Like a pair of blue jeans, a sheepskin rug can age nicely over time.
Size & Shape: is the final characteristic of lambskin pelts which is obvious to the eye. High quality sheepskins are usually some of the largest. Big sheep usually provide the thickest leathers and wools. Industry standards for a premier sheepskin rug is anything over 95cm, while lower grade options range from 80-90cm in length when measured on the leather side. However, a Full Shape is also important. A shearling rug should be naturally rounded and in the shape of the animal. Our sheepskin rugs are naturally shaped and have an unshorn wool length of approximately 2-3 inches.
