Product Care and Cleaning
Pure and natural sheepskin has inherent self-cleaning and purifying properties so it continuously refreshes itself to stay clean.
For spot cleaning, simply shake off or wipe down the soiled area with a moist cloth clean and air dry.
Please note that sheepskin products when washed will not come out looking like new. We recommend only occasional washing. Constant washing will shorten the lifespan of this item. When necessary to clean, please follow washing instructions carefully.
1. Dry Clean
2. Hand Wash
Hand wash using a lanolin based detergent in cold or warm water (max 40°C/105°F). Only use special lanolin-based detergents, such as Eucalan and Melp, that contain no enzymes and bleach (i.e. do NOT use Woolite). These detergents can easily be purchased online and at major retailers such as Target.
3. Machine Wash
Machine Wash option can be used by carefully following the instructions below. Treat the items like you would a fine wool sweater. Use the ‘wool wash’ cycle on your washing machine and wash in warm water (max 40°C/105°F) with a lanolin based detergent. Only use special lanolin-based detergents, such as Eucalan and Melp, that contain no enzymes and bleach (i.e. do NOT use Woolite). These detergents can easily be purchased online and at major retailers such as Target.
Gently, gradually stretch the product back into its original shape. To dry, place the product on a flat surface with the wool down. Avoid direct sunlight.
Take care not to place the sheepskin on a radiator, steam pipe or in front of a fan heater as this will damage the sheepskin.
Do not iron or bleach your sheepskin product.
After washing, the wool may revert back to its natural state. You can help restore the fluffy appearance by very gently brushing the wool while it is wet and again when it is dry. A wire paddle brush is suitable.
