Q: Can I wash my sheepskin rug?

Teresa: Yes you can wash it in the washing machine on a wool wash. See our blog on caring for your Rug.

 

Q: Will the yarn shrink if I wash it?

Teresa: Wool must be washed gently so wash it on a gentle (30) wash cycle or by hand but do not spin it for more than the minimum as it does not like being agitated. See our blog on washing wool yarn.

 

Q: Can you join rugs together?

Teresa : Yes we often do this for customers who request it. We have joined up to 10 together to date! However, it is important to stress that it is impossible to find a perfect match of colour and wool length so be prepared for some differences in the rugs that we join.

 

Q: Can you send raw fleeces for spinning abroad ?

Teresa: Most countries are happy to have raw fleeces sent as long as they have accreditation that they are ‘healthy” which we do, of course, provide! If you are worried then select the ‘washed raw fleece’ option, or consult with us about the country in question.

 

Q: Can we visit the island and see the sheep for ourselves?

Teresa: Yes you can visit, but it is a boat trip of up to 2 hours and is expensive. Contact us with as much notice as possible if you are thinking of doing so and we will advise about boat-hire and weather conditions.
