Its lofty 3" pile lends cozy warmth and luxury, while 100% cotton backing keeps the rug in place. Made of fine Australian sheepskin and crafted in China or Thailand.

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).

How you clean this kind of carpet, my is yellow after the first cleaning

Asked on 12/12/2020 by Mirna from Ga.
Spot cleaning is optimal.To spot clean your rug, dilute mild liquid household detergent in cold water. We recommend Eucalan™ or mild liquid hand soap. Do not use commercial laundry detergents, soap containing enzymes or bleach, soap containing hand sanitizer, or products that are alkaline. Never use fabric softeners or soap with softening additives. Once the diluted detergent solution has been applied and any spots have lifted, thoroughly remove any residue with cool water. Hand squeeze as much water from the sheepskin as possible. Whether your rug has been spot cleaned or inadvertently gotten wet, always air dry it away from any heat source and out of direct sunlight. Do not tumble dry in the dryer, as this will cause hardening of the suede. When your rug is fully dry, fluff the wool back to its full shape by brushing it thoroughly with a wire brush.

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!

Champagne color pops!

The size is perfect for the living room. The rug was fluffy as soon as we unfolded and layer it out. The champagne color absolutely pops on the dark hardwood floors. My husband and I are very pleased with the purchase and customer service/support.
