A whimsical but orderly pattern in easy-on-the-eye grey and white is finished with nautical rope tassels for a subtle coastal vibe. One of the finalists in Annie's Rug Design Challenge, translated in hand-knotted wool for softness and coziness. Designed by Blogger Melissa Michaels.
- FEATURES & BENEFITS: Durable construction; plush feel; eye-catching, unusual weave. Because the weave lies in a single direction and is not apt to pull, hand-knotted rugs can appear lighter from one angle than the other - an optical illusion that is part of their appeal.
- WHERE TO USE: Area rugs that are perfect for "center stage" rooms like the living room, dining room, or master bedroom.
It is common for wool rugs to shed, as they are created from natural fibers that form long strands of material that are then hand-knotted to create delightfully soft and durable area rugs. Due to the sheared pile, loose fibers will eventually work their way to the surface. If your wool area rug starts shedding, this is normal. Just trim any tufts of wool that appear with a sharp pair of scissors; do not pull the fibers.
Even though shedding does occur –and is not preventable–there are steps you can take to help maintain the shedding of your wool rug. Visit our Rug Breeds Guide for detailed instructions on rug placement and rug care.
