If you have a handmade or antique rug, save your pennies and take it to a cleaner that specializes in oriental rugs. If you're in a large metropolitan area, price several places. Whatever else you do, don't use a carpet shampooer on it. If it is really dirty, and you have access to a unit that doesn't use any kind of bristle brush - just water and suction (set to low) then try that using distilled water alone (essentially you'll be rinsing the rug, but that will lift a fair amount of dirt). Since the rug is wool, use cool water, since you don't want it to shrink.

Try mixing some liquid laundry soap with water in a spray bottle. Take it out side and hang it over something like a fence or a couple of chairs spray it down real good with the soap and then use the water hose with a nozzle on it to spray it down. Leave out it the sun to dry . You might have to turn it over in a few hours to help both sides dry. I would also clean both sides. Hope this helps.
