It is actually pretty simple! When the beautiful skins are made ready and tanned, they are simultaneously measured diagonally from the tannery, and they measure all the hairs with, so will you measure yourself, remember that it is inclusive hairs.
When the georgous rugs from iceland is beeing processed and tanned, they are also measured. The way they measure, i diagonally including the hairs. In that way we always have a standard for the lenght of icelandic rugs.
The sheepskin rugs are divided into sizes; III, II, I, 0, 00 where III is at least and 00 is highest as shown in the table below:
|Size from the tannery||Size in cm.||Size on the back-side|

Some of the skins can handle the skins, here we are talking natural colored skins.
Dyed skins, especially light colors we highly recommend to avoid sunlight, as it means that it might be bleached or in worst case, discovered.
Do not hesitate to contact if you are in doubt.[accordion action="end accordion"] [accordion action="new accordion" title="I've noticed that there are different prices on sheepskins from the same origin, why is that?"] That must be the Icelandic sheepskins you are thinking of! And luckily there is a good explanation for that.
Icelandic sheepskin with natural brown or grey shades is indeed very rare and by that, also a lot more expensive to buy, which of course also will affect the sales price.
In return you get some amazing beautiful skin in natural colors that no one other has.[accordion action="end accordion"] [accordion action="end accordions"]

Vacuum, shake or brush your product regularly
Avoid direct sunlight for dyed products.
This way you will avoid UV damage or fading
Attend to stains and spills as promptly as possible
Regular vacuuming will help to maintain the fluffy wool- and fur fibers. Please remember always to choose the lowest suction level to avoid any unnecessary damage. Products with longer wool might also benefit from a brushing occasionally with a wire brush.
Small stains and spills can mostly be sponged off with a damp cloth and a little bit of lukewarm water. If not, please follow the care instructions on your product or contact our team.
When dealing with stains and spills it is very important that you attend to the damage as promptly as possible, as wet stains are much easier to deal with than dry stains.
Finally, please remember that direct sunlight, because of UV radiation, is a strict NO! for dyed products. For all natural colours you are more than welcome to put it in the sun.
