Regular Maintenance

Note about edge finish: Our tufted wool area rugs that are machine-finished with a “"serged to blend" overcast stitch, using a yarn that closely matches the yarn of the rug. A narrow fabric binding applied beneath the stitching adds strength and helps to keep yarns in place. We like the way a serged edge blends with the rest of the rug, but because the looped threads can be pulled by heels (and pets' paws), we do not recommend placing your rug in areas with heavy foot traffic, human or animal.


One of the most crucial areas of wool maintenance is prompt removal of spots and spills. Acting quickly when anything is spilled or dropped, and always having the necessary cleaning materials on hand are of the utmost importance. Here are some guidelines, plus a link to our Spot (by type) Removal Chart:

HOST Dry Cleaning Kit

Our HOST Dry Cleaning Kit works for wool as well as sisal blends. Though nothing can guarantee the complete removal of a stain, a dry carpet cleaning system such as HOST is by far the most successful method for cleaning natural fiber floor coverings. HOST works by using a highly absorbent powder moistened with water, detergent, and a small amount of solvent. The sponging action of the cleaner dissolves and absorbs soil and spots, which can then be removed by vacuuming.
