A Huge 4.5 x 5.5 foot Point of View Farm Washable Finnsheep Sheepskin RUG. The inspiration for this rug is the Woolly Bear Caterpillar. If you have never seen these delightful creatures, you are in for a treat when you do. Where I live, lots of people look to them in the fall to discover how wide their chocolate band is to predict how long/ hard a winter it will be.
100% Natural USA Finnsheep Premium Sheepskin with soft wool in natural Colors. Six Natural Colored Sheepskins were hand selected, trimmed and then stitched together right at the farm in the Hudson Valley region of NY. The wool also known as shearling is an average of 1.5 inches long. Darker brown bands flanked by a milk chocolate brown band in the middle, just like that delightful Woolly Bear caterpillar. Generously sized at 4 foot 6 inches by 5 foot 6 inches. These dimensions are averaged since this rug has natural wavy edges. It weighs under a little more than 7.5 pounds.
Care instructions are included. The soft leather underside is cream colored. The rug is machine stitched on our specialty industrial leather sewing machine using extra heavy duty thread used by sailmakers.
A bit more about wool… Wool is naturally hypo-allergenic, biodegradable and repels dirt and odors as well as being fire retardant. No micro-plastics in sight! These are all bonuses to the fact that people of all ages just enjoy cuddling up with this traditional material. Children enjoy sitting on sheepskins to play. We have had customers sleep on them for extra warmth and cushioning. This generously sized rug would be stunning displayed on a couch, your bed or the floor. In Nordic countries like Finland, some people sleep under sheepskin blankets in winter or use them as mattress covers. It is a traditional gift to receive a sheepskin blanket when married.
