Large and Extra Large Sheepskin Rugs

Introduction

Sheepskin rugs are now available in a wide variety of sizes but unlike most other floor rugs, they are not of a uniform shape be that square, rectangular or round. Whilst the single sheepskin rug remains the popular choice, many prefer large sheepskin rugs or even extra large sheepskin rugs. Double sheepskin rugs are two fleeces sewn together, quad are four fleeces, sexto six fleeces and Octo eight fleeces sewn together. Clearly there is almost an infinite number of fleeces that could be sewn together to make extra large fleeces. For further information on sheepskin rugs visit "Sheepskin Rugs - The Complete Guide", Click here...

How to measure a sheepskin rug

We measure our rugs from the longest and widest points on the fur side (not the suede underside) as this is how they are intended to be seen. As natural sheepskins are different the colours, patterns, shapes, and exact sizes may vary slightly by up to 10% from those illustrated on the site. Measurements of the large and extra large sheepskins are shown in the table below. 

Sheepskin Rugs at FelinFach

Without exception, our single sheepskins are authentic, 100% natural whole perfect skins and fleeces - they are not ‘manufactured’ or sewn together from little pieces with other synthetic materials to form a single sheepskin. Large sheepskin rugs are individual sheepskins (as described above - that is whole perfect fleeces) sewn together. We do not offer large faux sheepskin rugs or any artificial rugs, that have been dyed or bleached. Our sheepskin rugs are not available in any other retail outlets such as IKEA or Dunhelm!

Sheepskins Sourcing and Farming

All our sheepskin rugs are made from sheep born, bred and farmed in the UK in natural outdoor grazing environments. We do not import sheep for the making of sheepskin rugs. Our British sheepskins are a by-product of the farming industry, an industry which has some of the highest standards of animal welfare in the world. These sheep are not bred and farmed to solely to produce sheepskin rugs.
