How to Care for Your Alpaca Rug

Our alpaca rugs are reversible. And, because they are a natural product, they do not fade in sunlight.

This distinct area rug is hand loomed by experienced weavers. The natural fiber is spun around a jute core, which given the rug years of durability and also has the advantage of being reversible. Since the fiber has its natural color, it resists fading and wear and also provides a certain amount of sound proofing. This unique hand woven natural fiber rug, with European-like texture, shows occasional unevenness and nubbs, which gives each rug an original appearance.
Vacuum your rug with a “smooth surface attachment” frequently. Never run a vacuum head over a rug like you would a carpet. There will be slight loss of fiber each time, but so minimal as to be unnoticeable. Spot clean with warm water and mild soap or Resolve. The entire surface may be shampooed with a Woolite rug cleaner. For your safety, a quality foam under pad is recommended. Machine washing & dry cleaning is NOT recommended
