These wool rugs usually come in white or creamy colours, but they can be dyed just about any colour. These shag rugs need weekly maintenance where they are cleaned and brushed. These rugs need professional off-site cleaning.

These rugs are soft but they don’t have the same plush feel or texture as wool. These shag rugs are highly flammable and you have to be mindful about where you place it in your home. This rug can be cleaned with expert steam cleaning.
