Storage and Use of Sheepskin
Regular vacuuming will help to maintain the wool fibers and unclipped longer wool
Small stains and light soiling can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent. For more thorough cleaning, dry cleaning is recommended for the best results. Natural sheepskins can be hand or machine washed in warm water (40C / 104F) using a mild liquid detergent (USA soap) on a gentle washing cycle. Please note that machine or hand washing may affect the appearance of the natural wool fibers and the leather
Air dry your natural sheepskin by hanging it on a line or by laying it out flat, away from direct sunlight. It is important to stretch sheepskin during the drying process to retain the shape and prevent excessive shrinkage. Do not tumble dry, iron or bleach your sheepskin.
After washing, the wool fibers will likely revert back to their natural curly state. Brushing with a wire wool comb while wet and after drying will help restore the fluffy appearance and natural loft of the fibers.
