Type; Icelandic-shorn. Natalie's favourite type of sheepskin rug-shorn icelandic.
Size measured at widest points on woolly side; 49" x 32"
Length of fibre; 2"
*I find that the shorn icelandic sheepskins are the most wonderful for my PTSD symptoms. The texture upon feeling these sheepskins is quite magical, coarser inner coat and softer outer coat. If you feel like your hands and feet cant register much feeling anymore I really do suggest that you try these. The coat is 2" thick and they are absolutely beautiful.
Sheepskin rugs are the pelt (hide) from a sheep, like leather but with the fleece attached. The hide is professionally tanned so that it lasts years and years. No longer are these sheepskins just favorited by 'hippies' but now the realization is that natural wool is hypoallergenic, comfortable sustainable and beautiful, a smart choice for families to invest in. The fleece of a sheepskin has excellent insulating properties and it is also resistant to flame and static electricity. Wool is considered by the medical profession to be hypoallergenic. Sheepskin is a natural insulator, and draws perspiration away from the wearer and into the fibers. There, it traps between 30 and 36 percent of its own weight in moisture. Pets love them, possibly more than you will so it is suggested to purchase more sheepskin rugs so that you are not fighting over one. We have chosen tanneries that are equally passionate about what they do for a living. Since we purchase a large amount of European sheepskins (as sheep are rather tough to find in large numbers in Canada) we have chosen tanneries that specialize in processing the particular beautiful hide in this listing. It takes a lot of skill to tan a hide properly, our tanneries utilize environment friendly practices by way of any chemicals used. All of which abide by very strict European standards. *An excellent tactile tool for those with autism, PTSD, and depression.*If you or a friend are stuck in office/cubicle job, one of our sheepskin rugs in the office chair and another under the cubicle for the feet makes an amazing positive difference in the workplace. This sheepskin is a natural, sustainable product, no dyes have been added.
