Ecowool's natural baby care sheepskin rugs are tanned to New Zealand Wool Board specifications for infant use. Sheepskins which meet this specification must have the following special features.
Nursery rugs are completely free from vegetable or other foreign material. Fibre loss must be minimal. Mean staple length of sheepskin to be between 1" and 3". Mean fibre diameter to be no more than 30 microns. Must be unbleached or a pastel shade.
Must be effectively sterilised.
Ecowool baby rugs are sterilised using the trademarked 'Sanitise' method.
Ecowool baby sheepskin rugs are environmentally friendly and natural and are made exclusively from NZ sheepskins. Unlike some sheepskins made elsewhere in the world they're not tanned using harsh chemicals like arsenic and formaldehyde.
The sheepskins are expertly trimmed, machined and washed and left to dry in the sun.The tanned fleece is then combed over and over by hand and finally polished to enhance the natural lustre of the sheep's wool. The finished rug takes over 25 stages, expertly carried out by skilled hands. A lovely sheepskin rug for baby.
