Care instructions Vacuum regularly at low power in the same direction than fluff with a carpet nozzle without bristles or very soft bristles. Fluff comes off the Long Pile Wool rug. Rotate the rug 180 degrees regularly. For all Roots Living rugs, we recommend that the rug is cleaned by a professional cleaner, where professionals choose the best possible way to wash the rug. For the Long Pile Wool carpet, we recommend flat washing as the washing method. Good ventilation during the drying process is essential. The shrinkage is about 3-5%.
