This unique soft handfelted wool rug by Muskhane makes a wonderful quirky addition to any home or nursery.
MUSKHANE’s products are hand-made in the fair trade workshops of the Katmandu Valley. They are composed entirely of natural, renewable materials - principally felted wool and cashmere - with stitching in sturdy cotton.
Felted wool, is also known as boiled wool. Since the 7th century BC, the shepherds of Central Asia have used it to create coats, hats, rugs, and tapestries, as well as water-resistant coverings for the roofs of their yurts.
Beginning with carded wool, soap, and water, a long process of pressure and friction brings about the interlacing of the wool’s fibre. The result is a supremely soft fabric, extremely weather-resistant and sound-insulating. Felted wool also boasts hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, and dust mite-resistant properties, without emitting any harmful substances.
Care instructions: vacuum or brush. Spot-clean with damp sponge and soap, or with a textile stain remover. Hand-wash using soap and scrubbing action. Squeeze out excess water without twisting, and dry flat. Do not machine wash.
