"CONSTRUCTION METHOD: Hand Knotted "MATERIAL TYPE: Wool "MATERIAL CONTENT: Pile: 53% Silk/47% Wool "CARE INSTRUCTION: Area rugs should be spot cleaned with a solution of mild detergent and water or cleaned professionally for heavy or set in stains. Regular vacuuming helps rugs remain attractive and serviceable. Use of a rug pad is recommended to keep rug laying smoothly in place and to help prolong the life of the rug. Shedding is normal with rugs that contain wool. Please be sure to set your vacuum to the highest possible setting when cleaning the rug to ensure the brush roller does not cause additional damage to the rug. If loose ends or loops are found, do not pull them out by hand, cut them with a scissor to avoid tugging any unwanted threads from their roots. Remember, shedding is a natural occurrence and should diminish within 4-6 months.
