Slate : sheepskin rug


A Dorest-Arcott sheepskin rug tanned in the Mineral Tanned method.  This sheepskin is from a small family farm on Vancouver Island, WSANEC Nation territory.  It has an outer grey coat and an inner white coat, with grey sides and a white centre.  I named it Slate for this beautiful and unique colouration, and I tanned it near slate valleys on the Sunshine Coast.

The rug is mainly for indoor use and is a super soft white-yellow leather, with 5-6″ long soft wool.  This is an amazingly luxurious rug and one of the largest sizes they come in, measuring over 3ft long.  To preserve the woolly curls of this rug, i did not brush it with a fine-tooth comb; it may therefore have some small remaining pieces of seeds, etc. in the wool.  This comes with the territory of natural sheepskins; if you prefer a finely-combed rug, go with an Icelandic.

Sheepskin rugs make wonderful floor pads, baby blankets, pet bed, or throw for your favourite chair to cozy up while you work.
