A Fur Rug is Furever Yours!
When I say fur rug, what do you think about? The bear rug with the head still attached? While you can get bear skin rugs, that is by no means the only type of fur rugs out on the market today. You can find fur area rugs in either exotic flavors with usual patterns or you go for the super luxurious sheepskin rugs or alpaca rugs. Alpaca rugs are from llamas and they are really soft plush feeling.
Most fur area rugs are hand washable if need be but try to get away with spot cleaning first. Absolutely do not put your fur area rug into the dryer or near any other heat source. Keep the iron and bleach away, too. If your wool fur got curly when it dried, you can try brushing it out when wet to keep it from tightening up again.
If the price of a fur area rug is beyond your price range, consider getting a little bit of fur. Go with a smaller area rug, maybe one that you could put in front of the TV or the fireplace. Having a couch throw or a fur pillow can also be a smaller bit of fur heaven.
If you love the way fur area rugs feels but you don't believe in having fur in your house, consider getting a faux rug or even a flokati rug. A flokati area rug is traditionally made in Greece using long wool loops that are then cut and washed to a furry finish.
