Pet Bed Mat Wool Fleece Felted Rug - Shetlandia

This pet mat was made with wool fleece from a Shetland sheep using a wet felting process. The raw wool was worked directly into a rug. The colors run from gray to an array of browns. Very pretty natural color range and oh, so very soft and plush.
This fleece rug would look great on the couch, foot of the bed, or where ever your pet enjoys lounging. It would also work nicely in the bottom of a basket. I like to take something from home when we visit the vet, and this rug lines a pet carrier perfectly.

The Shetland's roots go back over a thousand years, probably to sheep brought to the Shetland Islands by viking settlers. They belong to the Northern European short-tailed group. The Shetland is the smallest of the British breeds and it retains many of the characteristics of wild sheep. Today they are considered a primitive or "unimproved" breed.

I am very proud to say that the pet rugs made with raw fleeces have all been procured from American small farms. These are generally family run farms that have dedicated their lives to ancient traditions of nurturing and raising sheep and other farm animals as their life's passion. Many are considered rare breeds that are making a comeback in the American culture. There is absolute raw beauty in these fleeces. Once you have touched and sensed these animal's gift of fleece you will be forever changed.
And did I mention, cats love wool. I am beginning to believe it is instinctual.


Just to be clear, fleece is shaved from the back of the sheep. No harm to the animal.

Measures:
21 inches x 30 inches

Care:
Hand wash in cold water. These fit nicely into a standard bathtub. Fill with cold water and let it have a leisurely soak. Massage the fibers, and if needed use shampoo to clean. Drain tub, fold rug and press out water. Run through the spin cycle of your washing machine to remove excess water. Dry flat.
Brush with a clean nylon bristle scrub brush at any time.
