Cleaning & Caring for your Sheepskins

Sheepskins are easy to maintain as they are naturally dirt and stain resistant and therefore do not require regular cleaning.

We recommend that you frequently shake and air your sheepskin and brush it with a soft brush to restore its full and fluffy appearance and lustre.

On receipt of your product, you may notice a distinctive lanolin fragrance which is due to the natural oils in the sheepskin. This odour can be intensified after being confined for extended periods in packaging. Airing the product after unpacking it should reduce any residual odours.

If your sheepskin is lightly soiled it can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth.

For heavier soiling, you can either hand wash or machine wash your product at no more than 30 degrees Celsius on a gentle wool cycle. We recommend using a sheepskin detergent such as Woolskin by Tantech so that the leather doesn’t harden. 

Note: Our Mongolian Sheepskin product should not be washed or dry-cleaned as this will damage the natural crimp of the wool fibre.

Your sheepskin should be dried out of direct sunlight in an airy place. Please do not dry your product on a radiator or heater.

Lightly brush and stretch your sheepskin after drying.

Please note that as this is a natural product, some discolouration can occur during the washing process. The same applies if the product is left in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
