These shaggy flokati rugs offer exceptional value for money and are made in Greece from the same top quality New Zealand wool as our Premium 2000gsm rugs, only slightly lighter and ideal for living rooms and bedrooms. The backing is also made of wool. Like all genuine flokatis, they are highly resistant to dirt.
Their weight is 1500 g/m2.
Small - 70 x 120cm
Medium - 90 x 160cm
Large - 140 x 200cm
Extra Large - 170 x 240cm
The sizes are measured on the backing of the rug. Add approx 10 cm for the fully covered area.
To avoid disappointment, please note that these rugs are lovely and as soft as sheep but not as soft as sheepskin rugs which are treated with strong chemicals to soften the wool.
As with all hand-crafted carpets, the edges of the flokatis are never exactly straight.
Due to the long fibres on this product, not recommended for babies. Please note that as these items are authentic handicrafts, some shedding of wool is inevitable and can be minimised by regular vacuuming using your machine's nozzle attachment. Be aware before purchase.
Cleaning and washing your flokati rug
Flokati rugs are highly resistant to dirt and stains. Cleaning flokatis is very simple although larger rugs can be a challenge.
Dirt and dust do not cling to flokati wool fibres. If your flokati is not very dirty, shake and brush it. You can also use the nozzle end of your vacuum cleaner but do not use the rotating brush.
If more dirty, after shaking, hand-wash using the mildest of wool detergent in very small quantities, in cold or lukewarm water.
Please note that due to their construction, flokati rugs slip easily on wooden/laminate floors and they creep on carpet so we strongly recommend that you purchase our anti-slip underlay.
