Classic sheepskin products are easy care and regular brushing, vacuuming and shaking helps restore the pile and keep them free from dust.
The leather side can be easily damage by incorrect washing, therefore the steps provided will help reduce the risk.
To clean larger products, use a small amount of water and wool-wash as per the details below. Lightly sponge over the wool side only focusing on rubbing through the wool and not the skin underneath. Brush to restore pile and dry slowly in the shade.
- Only use a small amount of an approved Neutral or Mild Sheepskin Wash. If unavailable, then just use water.
- Do not use any Bleach or Enzyme Washing Products.
- Only use cold water.
