Jacob sheep have a particularly fine, striking fleece.  Sewn together in a Quad rug, they are quite simply magnificent.  With their distinctive dark brown and creamy white spotted marks, they are immediately identifiable as one of the most ancient breeds known to man. 

Attributed to the expertise of Jacob, the Biblical character in the Old Testament, the sheep were popular throughout North Africa, being traded right across its breadth and into Europe.  Reaching England in the 16th century, they caught the eye of Elizabeth I and were soon sought after by both aristocracy and landed gentry.  Waning in favour by the end of the First World War, their preservation has been assured since 1969 by the Jacobs Society.  

The Jacob Quad Sheepskin rug will make an awesome statement in your home and look particularly fine in a contemporary setting.  Stunning against either dark or light wooden, stone or carpeted floors, it will soon become your most treasured possession.


To keep your sheepskin looking as good as the day you bought it, restore the texture of the wool from time to time using a metal brush or comb. On the back of each sheepskin, you will find a stamp detailing whether the fleece is washable or dry clean only. For a spot clean or refresh, use a damp cloth and our Woolly Fresh Spray. Use the latter sparingly.

Washable sheepskins

You can hand wash or machine wash your fleece on a wool cycle at 30 degrees Celsius with a wool-specific soap or our Woolly Wash. Dry in the shade and do not expose the leather to heat. When dry, shake vigorously and rejuvenate the pile using a brush.

Dry-clean sheepskins

Your rug should be brushed regularly to keep the fleece in good condition, this is especially important if you have a longer staple rug. If you do spill something on the rug it can be spot washed, taking care not to wet the leather, and then dried slowly. Talk to a reputable dry cleaner, who will have experience of leather and fleeces.
