Please note that the rugs are natural products and therefore especially with natural brown color there are color differences between individual rugs (some have more brown and some more grey tones).

We purchased a sheep-skin rug to our spring baby. In the hospital she slept well, but at home she was tearful. We put the sheepskin in her cot and sleep returned. In the winter we used the rug both in her pram and bed. Then she moved into a big girl's bed and the sleep disappeared again, but magically returned again with the rug. The rug has been invaluable in our family. Easy to keep clean and always wonderfully soft.
This spring I bought a Ruskovilla's sheepskin rug for my children. Mainly I got it with our baby in mind, but also 2- and 4-year-old big brothers love to lay on top of it and wrap it around themselves. Also the honey tone is both beatiful and practical.
