Composition & care

Composition: 20% Yak Khullu, 80% Sheep Wool
Care: Tibetans washed their carpets in rivers and let them dry on the pasture. Since this is not always feasible, you have other choices:
1)A carpet shampooer, using wool friendly detergent and cold water.
2) Spot cleaning with mild, wool friendly detergent
3) Putting your carpet on a flat surface, deck or terrace and thoroughly wetting it with a garden hose. Apply wool friendly detergent and scrub it with a brush. Rinse out the soap with the hose and let the carpet dry away from sunlight.
