How Your Felt Ball Rug is Made?
This felt ball rug is hand-made by Nepalese artesian women. Below are very quick and simple steps on how it’s done.
1. Each individual felt ball is made of high-quality New Zealand wool which is soaked in soapy water and rolled until they are roughly 2 cm in diameter.
2. Once done, they put the ball in the cold water and rinse it. ( Yes they do it to thousands more, individually to make up your rug).
3. These felt balls are then dried in the sun.
4 . Once completely dried, they are ready to sew together to make the rug. This is the most complex task and takes a huge amount of time.
5. Once the rug is made, it’s ready to be delivered to you. Hope now you appreciate all the work that goes into this wonderful piece of work.
Shake out your rug and vacuum it regularly using just the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner to ensure dust and dirt don’t settle into the fibers of the felt balls. Be careful of using bristly vacuum cleaner heads, as you may accidentally fuzz up your felt balls. Do not use your felt ball rug in a wet area. Never use harsh chemicals or detergents on your rug. Periodic washing by hand in lukewarm water will help protect your rug from damage.
