We purchased this sheepskin area rug for our new home because it is not only beautiful, but also because it is a non-toxic natural sheepskin and only natural vegetable dyes were used to color it, which was important to us. We feel good about putting our bare feet/skin on it. My daughter said that our new family room wood floor deserved to have a plush area rug and I knew exactly what would be the perfect fit after recently visiting your store in Taos, NM. We appreciate the color samples that you sent to help make our color selection the most perfect choice for our space. Our new sheepskin rug is plush, warm, inviting and luxurious! Perfect for our long Wisconsin winters. I know we will enjoy it for many years to come. We love it!
