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.
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.
