Cleaning and Care Instructions
All our Sheepskin Products can be machine washed and tumble dried at low temperatures. Maximum temperature 30 degrees.
When dry, brush off the worst of the mud/sweat/dirt with our lambskin brush. This will cut down the frequency of washing.
When you do need to wash; machine wash at max 30 degrees, using our C7 sheepskin detergent to preserve the oils in the hide (ordinary washing detergent will dry out the sheepskin over time)
Tumble at maximum 30 degrees. Tumble drying helps to fluff up the sheepskin.
You can also lay out flat (sheepskin side up) to dry (pulling into shape through the drying process)
Brushing with our sheepskin brush, after product is washed and dry, will also fluff up the sheepskin, helping it to look like new and retain its air flow and cushioning effect.
Sheepskin should be allowed to dry after riding if it has become wet. Hang over a saddle rack (or similar) so air can flow can dry it.
Its rare, but some moth types are partial to sheepskin and will lay their eggs in the fleece. The larvae, when hatched, feed on the fleece at the base of the hairs. Regular washing with C7 sheepskin detergent will help prevent this. If you notice bald patches appearing in the sheepskin, wash straight away to kill off any eggs/larvae and brush thoroughly when dry.
Items that are not used regularly can be stored in a container or covered to prevent moth damage.
