In order to keep your rug looking and feeling great for many years to come, we wanted to share some care and maintenance tips with you.
Shedding: Your rug is made of 100% wool and will shed natural fibers for the first few weeks after it is laid down. Regular vacuuming is recommended to pull up grit and dirt that could potentially cause staining or damage to the rug fibers over time.
Loose fibers: While your rug settles, it is normal for short fibers or yarn loops to pop up- these fibers can be trimmed with scissors to create a smooth and level appearance. Avoid pulling any strays as this could cause damage to the rug.
Spot Cleaning: Accidents happen! Fortunately wool is a naturally stain resistant fabric, and most can be cleaned using a mixture of white vinegar, dish soap and lukewarm water. Dab the mixture on the stain, using a combination of wet and dry dabbing to lift the stains. Avoid scrubbing as this could spread unwanted discoloration as well as damage the natural fibers.
