Caring For Your Bellwether
Wool rugs contain a naturally occurring oil known as Lanolin, making them highly durable and stain resistant. As a result, they are well suited for dining rooms, kitchens, hallways and entries.
The following tips will help you keep your Bellwether rug looking like a treasure.
STAINS & SPILLS
The lanolin in Bellwether wool is resistant to stains, but must be treated quickly before stains soak through. First, blot the affected area with a damp cloth. Apply a soapy water mixture, and then elevate the damp part of the rug with a bowl or block so that it can dry.
Bellwether’s natural dyes and soft hues are subject to fading, especially in direct sunlight. Rotate your rug often to prevent fading in one spot.
Avoid using vacuums on handmade rugs. Sweep or shake out your rug to rid it of dust and debris. Every 8-10 years, rugs need to be professionally cleaned. Find a local oriental rug cleaner to restore your rug to its original sheen.
We recommend using a felt rug pad, which can be found on Amazon or at your local Home Depot. These pads extend the life of your rug by preventing sliding, wrinkling, stretching and slipping while also providing a thicker and more comfortable support underfoot.
