Shepherd sheepskin

Washing & Care

Taking proper care of your sheepskin and wool products will ensure that they are a part of your life and home for a long time.

Sheepskin

Remember that sheepskin is dirt repellant so shaking and airing now and then in high humidity can be sufficient. To clean sheepskin, use lukewarm water and a mild detergent, or use cleaning products designed just for sheepskin. After cleaning stretch and rub the skin when damp. Let it then dry in a warm room, but never next to or over a radiator. To restore the shine, we recommend brushing with a soft brush.tse.

Wool

Wool products are best washed by hand in lukewarm water with a soft cloth when needed. Avoid detergents that contain enzymes and alkaline detergents such as soap flakes or resin-based detergents.

Properties of sheepskin

Sheepskin absorbs water and doesn’t necessarily  need to be washed. A good result will be obtained by shaking and airing outdoors in high humidity. The water vapour will pass through the skin and remove dirt particles and odours. Natural sheepskin with lanolin has a self cleaning effect if left to hang in the air. It absorbs sweat and releases it into air much faster than synthetic materials. Self-regulating in terms of temperature, making it excellent for summer and Winter.
