Odegard Carpets are woven from the fleece of the chenylok sheep grazing on the 14,000 foot high plateaus of Tibet. Their diet of fresh herbs and grasses, and their rigorous habitat contributes to their unique lanolin-rich, long-staple lustrous wool of exceptional quality.
Use a natural rubber pad under your carpet at all times. Pads should not be thick or soft. This will avoid slippage and also help protect the knots of the carpet on the back face. Turn the carpet 180 degrees every 12 months to eliminate the occurrence of traffic patterns and uneven softening of colors from light exposure. For an initial few months the wool will pill in the form of lint. Vacuum the carpets a minimum of once a week on a moderate setting, this will remove the lint and maintain the spectacular sheen of the carpet. Avoid using a vacuum with a beater.
