The History of Flokati Rugs I

Just how long have flokati rugs been around?
They go back a lot further than the 1970s which may surprise some people.
The Greeks of Samarina shepherded goats and sheep for trade and commodity. The sheep were primarily used for the production of milk and cheese.
Around the 5th century, they started using the sheep's wool as insulation against the cold winter months. It was used both in the home and incorporated into clothing to keep warm when the temperature often fell below 0c/32f.
