Pet Bed Mat Wool Fleece Felted Rug - Icelandic Spot

This pet mat was made with an Icelandic wool fleece using a wet felting process. This fleece was felted directly into a rug. Its color range is from snowy white, lilac, gray, and black. There is still some vegetable matter left behind from the farm, but this only adds to the primitive/rustic feel of this rug. The Vikings knew what they were doing by breeding this sheep. Warm, light weight, and soft. You might even want to keep this rug for yourself, but I can't help thinking of the great dreams the furry ones must have while they are sleeping on a sheepy loft of fleece.
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 modern Icelandic Sheep is a direct descendant of the sheep brought to the island by the early Viking settlers, in the ninth and tenth century. Genetically the Icelandic sheep is the same today as it was 1100 years ago. It is possibly the oldest and purest domesticated breed of sheep in the world today.

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:
36 inches x 25 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. Dry flat. Brush with a clean nylon bristle scrub brush.
