Sheepskin Mats: 5 Options to Luxury

I should start with the advice that although it is called Sheepskin Mats, it really is Lambskin mat. Not to be confused with Lambswool. Lambswool is the term for shorn wool stuck to a backing – generally cotton or polyester of some kind. Lambskin refers the to a natural product with a natural hide naturally attached to the back, and a tip on the wool pile to indicate that it has not been shorn.

The terminology Mat indicates that 2 or more have been joined to make a larger or shaped rug or carpet like Mat.

You can purchase conventional lambskin rugs in a double, quad (4 hides) Secto (6 Hides) or Octo (8 Hides) all with the natural scalloped edges, as well as Designer made ones that range from round (in various sizes) to straight edged plain to fancy sewn in designer sheepskin Mats. There really are lots of options in sheepskin Mats.

Basic Sheepskin Rug

These Sheepskin rugs can be huge. They are generally made to a single colour, a colour with a dyed tip. They are ideal on the flooring, presented on the couch or lounge surface as a decor throw, or hung over a chair as a comfort or padding. They make a remarkable area accent. Typically these are what is termed the double or quad sizes, their sizes vary based on the individual hide selections – read here that the bigger the base hides used the fluffier they will be. However, they can range from 1.6m long and 0.5m wide to 2.2m long and 0.7m wide for a double, or up to 2.2m long and 1.2m wide for a jumbo quad

Sheepskin Area Rugs

A complete sheepskin carpet is a definitely gorgeous enhancement to an area. Sheepskin Mats come in a range of dimensions starting with the double and Quad sizes but expanding into the Secto – 6 selected hides (1.8m to 2.2m long and 1.5m to 1.8m wide), to a Octo – 8 selected and matched hides (1.8m to 2.2m long and 2.0m to 2.4m wide), and any size you like. We have made many that have 16 selected hides in a 4 wide x 4 long arrangements. These are approx 2.2m wide and 3.9m long and are a massive area rug with luxury spelt all over it.

Designer Sheepskin Rugs

Designer Sheepskin Mats take the all-natural charm of sheepskin as well as form and also dye it right into a job of art. The Designer will certainly contrast lengthy as well as brief sheepskin or might also blend various varieties to obtain the impact they are looking for. Australian sheepskin is at the forefront with these Designer Rugs. These can have patterns or shapes sewn into the rug to

create a designer piece, or can have straight edges. Designer Lambskin rugs are available in Longwool (60+ mm wool pile) or short wool which is generally a 26mm wool pile. These can also be round rugs, our most popular round rugs are a 750mm diameter and a 1.9m diameter.

Bed Coverings

Many individuals opt to put their sheepskin Mats on the top of their beds, replacing the doona or bedspread (as opposed to putting it directly on the mattress as a bed underlay) another great idea and especially popular with those stuck in bed. It’s a fantastic appearance as well as very easy to finish the space style around. White is a spectacular option on the bed and also very sophisticated! Again the options can be natural scalloped edges, straight edges or straight edges with borders of a different colour. Again available in a Longwool pile or short wool pile or a mix of both long and short wool pile.

Infant and also Sheepskin Carpet

Also, any child can appreciate his or her own sheepskin rug. These Sheepskin Mats are available

in a range of colours that cater to the fussiest of kids or cater so everyone knows which colour is theirs.

Pet Beds and Sheepskin Rugs

Sheepskin pet beds are fast becoming popular, simply because the hide is the bed so it can be placed anywhere, even on the lounge. Easy washed and maintained these will cater for Cats and Dogs, Large and Small, especially if they need to go into a kennel or cattery over the holidays. Especially popular for Pet beds is the High Temperature washable medical sheepskin, simply because they have a higher washability and can handle the washing better than any other modern sheepskin.

Shopping for a Sheepskin ??

With the Australian Summer fast approaching, I think a sheep skin rug would make a soft and cosy addition to your home or office.  As Australian Sheepskin Suppliers, we constantly hear from office people wanting to make their office chairs more comfortable over the hot summer period.

At Ozwool we offer high quality Australian Sheepskin Rugs for all decor.  They are extremely popular and come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes.  Here are a few points when buying an Ozwool Sheepskin:

1. Wool Density & Loft

The density of wool refers to the number of wool fibres per square inch. High-grade sheep skin, like that of Ozwool’s  Australian sheepskin rugs, has a very high wool density, largely due to the breed of sheep it comes from. Also important is the wool’s loft, or its ability to stay upright and straight. A lower quality sheepskin rug may flatten quickly, or its fibres may become curly, tangled or matted, whereas high-quality rugs boast wool fibres that retain their loft beautifully.

2. Wool Length

To achieve premium-grade standards, Lambskin rugs must possess both the necessary wool density and length, which for a long wool lambskin is a minimum of 65 mm. For a Shortwool sheepskin, it should be around the 25mm length, any shorter and you will see wool shear with use.  Lower grade sheepskin may have the necessary length, but if it isn’t dense enough, the long wool fibres won’t be able to retain their loft, and the rug will end up looking shaggy.

3. Colour

High-quality sheep skin should have a nice, natural ivory tone, unmarred by stains or discolourations in the underlying wool. Premium sheepskins in other colours should display the same clean look, with no visible imperfections. But remember also that natural sheepskin is a NATURAL product so it can vary.

4. Feel

Perhaps the most enjoyable attribute of high-quality sheepskin is its soft, silky feel. Wonderfully plush to the touch, premium Lambskin adds luxurious comfort wherever it’s displayed, whether next to the bed (making feet oh-so-happy each morning), on the couch (cosy to snuggle up to on chilly nights), or tossed over your office chair (making workdays much comfier). When comparing higher and lower end sheepskins, you should be able to feel the difference. Ozwool’s Australian lambskin rugs have a lusciously soft texture that you’ll have to feel to believe.
