Sheepskin rugs are timeless. They never seem to go out of fashion, and you can always rely on them to make sumptuous living room rugs. Ideal for lounging about in front of the fire on a cold winter’s night, sheepskin rugs bring warmth and comfort to your home. You can even use them as throws for beds and sofas, as well as hanging pieces, to make a lasting impression. All our sheepskins are made to the highest quality, ethically sourced from hardy sheep all over the world. There’s nothing else like the sumptuously soft fleece of a sheepskin underfoot. Why not find out for yourself? Sheepskin rugs not only look great but they also come with unexpected health benefits too. You can learn more about our sheepskin rugs at www.hiderugs.co.uk. Today, we look at what sheepskins can offer you.
Our range of luxurious sheepskin rugs are entirely natural and offer pure comfort. There are several selections to choose from, including hides from all over the world. Firstly, our Scandinavian curly sheepskin rugs are renowned for their soft fleece and striking patterns and colours, from pure white to smoky greys and blacks.
Similarly, our Icelandic sheepskin hides boast an incredibly luxurious long and textured fleece unlike any other. A different experience altogether, Icelanders have used them to keep warm for thousands of years. Complementing their glossy texture, they come in a range of hues, including mottled browns and startling silvers.
If you’re looking to get more for your money, our extra-large premium sheepskins make great rugs as well as throws. Rich chocolates and soft ivory, as well as beautiful rare breed hides featuring mottled colour combinations.
Finally, our all-natural rare breed sheepskin hides always look gorgeous, though we suggest laying them down in front of doorways and sofas. Homegrown and responsibly sourced from British sheep, our rare breed hides come in an array of designs and colours. They make great throws for chairs and sofas, as well as centrepieces to bring the room together.
Sheepskin comes with surprising health benefits. Their supple hides are filled with naturally crimped fibres, acting like a small spring to cushion and support your body. Among the most comfortable animal hides around, they absorb pressure and distribute weight evenly over your body as you rest. They are just as comfortable as any bed and can even relieve aches and pains.
Moreover, sheepskins are known for their warmth. They can regulate your body temperature, in fact, ensuring you stay nice warm when cold and cool when it gets too hot. As such, they make perfect throws and blankets any time of year, and can even improve blood circulation.
Finally, to top it all off, sheepskins are also hypoallergenic. Sheepskin hides are very soothing for our skin, as they contain a substance called lanolin. Lanolin is great for sensitive or irritated skin and can help reduce inflammation. You won’t get any of these benefits with artificial sheepskins, which manufacturers make using carbon-based fibres containing petrochemicals. In fact, we recommend avoiding artificial fibres as they can be harmful. When it comes to sheepskins, natural is always best.
