Product Description

The Sixto is a versatile size and works well in many areas of the home.  Sheepskin rugs are also a popular addition to hotels, motels and apartments suites.

Bowron have combined Six of their ‘gold star’ grade sheepskins, carefully chosen for shade and texture match.

  • Longwool sheepskins are pure luxury.
  • They add that extra touch of comfort and style to any room in your home.
  • Dimensions given are approximate, as this is a natural product, and should be regarded as a minimum.
  • Made in New Zealand.

Bowron Rugs

The Bowron name has been synonymous with the world’s finest sheepskin products for over 100 years, and we stock only the ‘Gold Star’ grade of rug – the top of the range.

Bowron rugs are made exclusively from New Zealand sheepskins and are processed here at their tannery in our beautiful South Island.  Rugs are then finished and made ready for sale here and overseas.

Their exacting standards commit them to conducting their business in an environmentally sensitive manner and to producing products that are high quality, sustainable and safe.

  • Easy to care for and exceptionally long lasting, Bowron sheepskin rugs are as soft as a cloud and are available as single rugs or as multiple skins.
  • Bowron sheepskin rugs are a slightly purer, ivory shade than the creamy white Ecowool range.
  • Bowron use specifically chosen, non-persistent, biodegradable chrome free chemicals that meet the requirements of REACH standards. This relates to all chemicals and dyes used throughout the process.

Sheepskin Care and Storage

Sheepskin is incredibly easy to care for, it has an inherent natural ability to repel dirt and liquid.

A regular vacuum using the standard nozzle (only) or shaking the rug is generally all that is required to keep your sheepskin clean.

Your product may have been tightly packaged for shipping and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibers are very resilient and will bounce back to their original soft, fluffy appearance with a vigorous shake. Lay the skin flat and any fold marks will disappear naturally after a few days.

In the event further cleaning is required then please follow these specific guidelines

Spot Cleaning

– For small soiled areas, moisten a soft cloth with luke warm water
– Clean affected area using gentle circular motions, DO NOT rub
– If cleaning agent required, use mild wool detergent, non alkaline, enzyme and bleach free e.g. Ecostore Wool Wash
– Remove excess moisture with dry cloth
– Allow to dry and gently brush with Carding brush

Hand Wash

– Complete immersion into cold or lukewarm water ( max 38c/100F) DO NOT use hot

– Follow Drying instructions.

Machine Wash

– Machine wash on gentle cycle in lukewarm water (up to 38C/100F) DO NOT use hot

– Use a small amount of a mild wool detergent, non alkaline, enzyme and bleach free
– DO NOT use fabric softener.
– Hand squeeze or gently spin by machine to remove excess water.
– Follow Drying instructions.


NOTE : Excessive heat will cause hardening of leather and can cause product shrinkage.

– Products should be line or flat dried only.

If you wish to store your sheepskin, place in a cool, airy place away from direct sunlight. We do not recommend storing in plastic bags for an extended period of time as the fibres will not breathe and condensation may occur in warm conditions.

Whilst we endeavor to provide helpful information, washing and drying of sheepskin products is done at your risk and we cannot be held responsible for unforeseen damage that may occur.

    It is pure luxury and it fits perfect on the bed or by the fireplace. I will keep it by the fireplace. The backing of these skins is a little harder, the bleaching process I think leaves them dryer than the softer EcoWool rugs. I am using it on the sectional in the living room too. Sheepskin is one of God’s luxurious ways to keep us warm indeed. Particularly beautiful New Zealand’s sheep, the softest wool ever. I got the Goldstar sixto, I’m pleased.

    Husband gave me pure luxury…6 skin white sheepskin. Beautifully made, exquisite. Slept soundly under it at Christmas.

    I received my sixto rug last week and love it.
    It’s still very chilly in Scotland so I have it on my sofa – very snug.

    Best wishes
