Creating your own | Shaggy Rugs

22nd Jan 2015

We probably shouldn’t tell you this, but we recently read an article about how you can create your own shaggy rugs for your home.

Shaggy rugs are famous for having that soft, warm feeling on your feet, but can be a faff to clean at times – which shouldn’t be the case or reason to avoid buying one. But if you have a few unwanted, 100% cotton t-shirts, fleeces, blankets, sweatpants, or towels lying around then you might be in luck in making your very own shaggy rugs. If you want to learn more about creating your own shaggy rugs then you can find out more information over at motherearthnews.com.

Creating shaggy rugs is all good and well as it will save you a bob or two and they’ll be machine washable, but they carry some downfalls. We may sound bias in saying this but it’s true. For a start, you don’t get the full comfort as you would from real shaggy rugs and they probably won’t match the interior of your home or look as neat. Plus, shaggy rugs ARE easy to clean! The vac may have a hissy fit going over it, but you can just take the rugs outside and give it a good beating and a shake to get the dirt off, and even get some special cleaning shampoo for it.

If you don’t have time to make your own shaggy rugs and if you have a particular one in mind that you would like for your home, then head over to our online shop and have a browse of our wide collection of rugs.
