This picture taken in the twilight of an early morning is of a large 8x10 tufted, wool rug, probably purchased at Pottery Barn. The owner of this wool rug called me one day to ask if I knew how to shrink a rug back into form once it had a stretch in the middle. I answered of course in the affirmative because part of knowing how to do rugs right involves knowing how to do them wrong.
This rug was involved in a flood in a home and the contractor that cleaned up the water took it to his garage and put a few 5 gallon buckets underneath it to get it off the ground in order to dry it. Well in the meantime, the wool rug had stretched in a few places as you can see in the photo above.
If you or anyone else you know has any issues with any of your wool, silk, or any other kinds of rugs, give us a call, we have the answers you need.
