Don't do it foo! You'll never be seen again!
Are Flokati rugs a bad idea? - Page 3
I've had my 8 x 10 ft flokati for almost 4 years and am about to get rid of it. I love wool, love the softness, but it is a HUGE pain to clean, and now it is a home for wool moths (clothes moths). OMG it is horrible. I have to hand vacuum as it is, so it takes a long time, and now, since it has moths I have to do it everyday -- sometimes twice a day. I still am finding moths flying around. I don't want them getting into my other woolens so it's going to have to go. I may try cutting it into carpet squares first, so they can fit into a washing machine, however my advice is "don't do it" unless you're getting a small one that you can easily pick up, beat in the sun, throw in a washer, have a vacuum that has incredible suction, and lots of time to devote to keeping it clean.
They're beautiful and wonderfully soft, but extremely hard to keep clean when they're large.
