Custom Rugs from our Fleece at Cardinal Creek Farm:
Custom Rugs may be ordered from standard sizes. Rug sizes are limited by the mill loom size and the availability of fleece. All custom rug orders should be placed by March of each year to insure available fleece. All special orders (rugs or fleece) are on a first come basis. Standard rug sizes include 2x3 ft. up to 12x14 ft. Our rugs only come in natural alpaca colors.
Construction: The rugs are hand loomed by experienced mill weavers here in the South West United States. The fiber is spun around a jute core, providing a durable and reversible rug when woven. The texture is a European-like and usually will show an occasional unevenness and nubs, giving each rug an original appearance. As with any area rug the mill recommends a quality foam under pad for safety.
The mill weavers specialize in southwest designs.
Check with us if you are looking for a special look or size, many southwest designs are obtainable. Patterns and color are dependent on fleece color and quantity available. We usually have a few 2' x 3' rugs in stock as listed on the shopping page. The alpaca rugs are especially attractive for a southwest, modern, industrial, farm or ranch interior design.
Cleaning and Care:
Vacuum rugs frequently using a smooth surface attachment. Rugs may be spot clean with cool water and mild soap. The entire surface may be shampooed with a mild rug cleaner.
A nonrefundable deposit is required on all special order rugs, one half of payment is required when ordered. Special order rugs cannot be returned. Additional shipping charges will apply. Delivery time is subject to mill lead time. Estimated delivery time is approximately 3 to 6 months due to mill capacity. Most of our special orders rugs are placed in late April, but can be placed at other times as fleece is available.
We believe alpaca fiber is the best that nature has to offer, warm, light weight and hypoallergenic. Truly nature's best kept secrete. Contact us if you are interested in a special order.
