Shearling pillows and upholstered stools have been around for awhile. But the current trend is to toss tough-wearing shearling area rugs anywhere and everywhere for softness or added warmth.  A pair of Ghost chairs are covered with flokati rugs in this desk area.  The shaggy look is made by weaving together long wool yarn.

shearling area rugs -  in playroom teepee - AtticmagI purchased one from Shabby Chic Couture as a Christmas gift for our grandson.  He loves using it in the teepee given to him by DD2 for his first birthday.  This Gigi enjoys sharing the soft spot when we are reading or playing.  Another nice thing about shearling rugs is that they can be washed, often in the machine with cold water and mild detergent, laying flat to dry or tumbled on air setting, which also works for fluffing when cleaning isn’t necessary.  The naturally thick and fluffy shearling rugs are irresistible and an absolutely beautiful addition to any room.

    I think that is covetable Mongolian lamb on the Ghost chairs Allison – I know because I priced them once! Same idea as Flokati (woven onto a base) but much finer.

      Thanks, Tricia. I was just going by what the sources said – which aren’t always correct!
