Qualities of a Premium Sheepskin Rug

Qualities of a Premium Sheepskin Rug

Luxurious Plushness

Premium sheepskin has a very high wool density per square inch, making it luxuriously plush and cushiony.

Amazing Softness

Quality rugs are generally larger and more evenly shaped. Each pelt is at least 97 cm—much larger than budget-grade rugs.

Quality Construction

High-quality sheepskin naturally has a luminous, even tone that’s unmarred by stains or discolorations in the underlying wool.

Natural Comfort

While lower-grade sheepskins may have minor holes, cracks, and scratches on their undersides, the leather on a premium-grade sheepskin is evenly textured, with a well buffed, supple feel (and an anti-slip effect).

This rug is exactly as described. A premium beautiful rug which is now in my living room with a beautiful coffee table on top. Be warn if you have small animals such as cats! They think it is sone thing of a snow heavy. This is luxurious. I would highly recommend this product to everyone interested in purchasing. The backing is beautifully thick ❤️

ALWAYS Great Quality

LOVE this rug. It is thick, luxurious, beautiful. Quality is top notch with beautiful padding so you don't need to put down rug pads. Not the cheapest, but the best. Note: Be careful how you clean. A dry cleaners ruined one of our Overland Rugs by shrinking.

Very soft 5.5x8' sheepskin area rug

This is very plush, long hair sheep skin, super soft, and has a nice quilting on the back so does not need an underpad. Very luxurious. Not a pure white, more of an ivory and color varies from white to almost yellow in certain spots, but it is natural hair. Would have loved to have it all white.

Gorgeous rug! Exceeded my expectations

I have a small upstairs sitting area with a leather couch and mid century modern TV stand. I have been shopping for Flokati rugs could not find one that appealed to me. I followed the link to the Overland site and ordered a 5 x 8 Sheepskin for my room and couldn't be happier with the color, the quality and the softness!!! I am already planning to order another one for my bedroom. Thank you Overland, for making a beautiful, quality product!
