Woolcare & Washing Wool
Our Sheepskins are crafted with pride. You will be able to enjoy your Sheepskin for many years, provided you follow the care instructions detailed below.
Your sheepskin may have been tightly packaged for shipping and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibres are very resilient and will bounce back to their original springy appearance.
A vigorous shake will also help restore the soft, fluffy appearance of the wool. Any fold marks from packaging will disappear once the skin has been removed from the package for a few days.
Storage Should you wish to store your Sheepskin at any time, place it in a cool airy place avoiding direct sunlight. Packaging in plastic bags for an extended period of time is not recommended as the Sheepskin fibres will not breathe and condensation may occur in warm conditions.
Washing Our unique tanning process enables your Sheepskin to be easily hand or machine washed. It is important not to use hot water when washing Sheepskins as this may damage the pelt of the Sheepskin.
Hand Washing Use a mild liquid household detergent in cold or warm water (max 40degreesC/105degreesF). Do not use soap or washing powders containing enzymes or bleach, or which are alkaline. Do not use fabric softeners. Rinse thoroughly in warm water. Hand squeeze as much water from the Sheepskin as possible or spin in the washing machine. We recommend biodegradable soaps and Lanolin based wash products.
