1. WOOL DENSITY & LOFT
The density of wool refers to the amount of wool fibers per square inch. High-grade sheepskin, like that of Knitfirst premium sheepskin rugs, has a very high wool density, whereas high-quality rugs boast wool fibers that retain their loft beautifully.
Perhaps the most enjoyable attribute of high-quality sheepskin is its soft, silky feel. Wonderfully plush to the touch, premium sheepskin adds luxurious comfort wherever it's displayed, whether next to the bed (making feet oh-so happy each morning), on the couch (cozy to snuggle up to on chilly nights), or tossed over your office chair (making workdays much comfier). When comparing higher and lower end sheepskins, you should be able to feel the difference. Knitfirst premium sheepskin rugs have a lusciously soft texture that you'll have to feel to believe.
The quality of the leather, or underside, of sheepskin rugs is equally as important. It should be strong yet supple, and free from any odors, cracks, holes, or other defects.
High-quality sheepskin rugs should be free of any chemical smells, which may be apparent in lower quality rugs, due to their tanning processes.
