Cleaning and protection
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.
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.
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.
Properties of wool
Wool absorbs moisture. When the wool fibres absorbs moisture vapour, energy is produced so that the wool fibre does not feel damp, despite a water content up to 35%. Wool textile helps us to regulate our body temperature by absorbing moisture. Properties in wool keep our body cool so we dont sweat when we wear it next to our skin.
