FLOKATI FOR BEDDING

7/27/2020 1:39 PM

Around the 5th Century A.D., the shepherds began using the sheep’s wool to help protect themselves during the cold winter months where the temperature can dip below 32º F (0º C). The first forms of the Flokati were shaggy or shag resemblances of the modern day Flokati rug, as the shepherds had yet to realize the full potential of the sheep’s wool. The origin of the modern day Flokati was a serendipitous moment. The Samarina shepherds had left one of their woven wool blankets in the waters of the Pindus Mountains, unattended for nearly two days. Once they remembered their wool blanket, the shepherds returned to the stream where they had left their wool blanket and noticed that the backing felted, and most importantly the wool had unraveled and flourished. This was the first, fully flourished Flokati rug. Little did the shepherds know that the wool they relied on to stay warm would become a luxury for millions upon millions of people around the world for centuries to come. It would become – the Flokati rug.

What is the difference between the 3 weights of flokati rugs? We get this question all the time. 

So here it is: 

As the weight goes up (from 2000 gram to 3000 gram..etc) 3 things happen....

1- The pile length increases. 

2- Most importantly- the DENSITY (fluffy factor) increases.

3- The backing gets heavier.

Whats right for me??  

That depends on your room. A lower traffic area - like a bedroom or living area works well with the 3000 gram or 4000 gram weights. Don't forget the fluffy factor.. The 4000 gram is the most plush. The 3000 gram is thick too - just not as thick as the 4000 gram.

The 2000 gram weight is an all round very good flokati with a great price point.. We would reccomend this weight for : Guest rooms- family rooms- kids rooms and dorms. It offers a nice 2.5 inch pile.
