Our Icelandic Wool Felted Pelts are a beautiful way to support the Taste of the Wind flock and decorate your home!
These rugs are two icelandic fleeces. The top fleece is sustainably sheared by the Shepherd, BJ, herself! It is rolled up and laide out ontop of a fleece that BJ cards into large sheets of roving called 'rolags'. This initial process of shearing and carding 2 fleeces takes a total of 4 hours. The fleeces are intensely washed and wet-felted together in an intensive process that involves lots of biodegradable soap, 1000+ rolling motions, and lots of elbow grease. Finally, the felted pelt is dried in the Wyoming breeze and sunshine and brushed out to yield a light, yet durable, 100% wool product that is a beautiful but functional rug or throw for your home, your office, your vehicle, your pets, and more! We have used them to sleep on while camping, as car seat covers, kitchen table seat cushions, rugs by the fireplace/woodstove, dog and cat beds, saddle seat pads, couch throws and blankets.
These rugs are very easy to clean. You can simply hose them off, add a little soap, rinse and hang to dry! Or if they just need freshening up, you can take them outside and rub them in a snow bank and shake them out.
These rugs are made to order. Simply purchase this online item and designate what color you would like.
