We understand how important it is to keep your lovely sheepskin looking baamazing..so we’ve created a list of tips and tricks on how to do just that!
Shake, Shake, Shake!
All of our stools have removable sheepskin covers, so you can take them of to give them a good shake! By shaking sheepskin, it helps to maintain wool fibers, restores the pile and gives its bounce back.
Sheepskin likes to be brushed too!
To keep your lovely sheepskin in tip top shape use a hard wire brush every now and then to smooth the pile. A wire slicker brush is best and will not damage the fleece – you’ll receive a brush free from us when you order any of our stools!
Sunlight is too bright!
Sheepskin is a natural product that will not appreciate strong sunlight. Strong sunlight will bleach and dry out the skin, especially the dyed fashion colours.
If you’re going to add some sheepskin to a room that is in direct sunlight, we would suggest one of our natural colours, which are: Ivory, Chocolate and Rare Breed
Don't get it wet!
Sheepskin is a natural product that does not appreciate damp conditions, damp floors will attract black mould and make the fibres curl up. If your sheepskin does get wet then dry outside away from the sun.
Sheepskin is naturally dirt repellent
Sheepskin doesn’t like to be dirty and naturally repels dirt and dust, but if your sheepskin does get dusty you can give it a good shake and use a vacuum cleaner with attachment if required.
Spills or sticky marks?
We would suggest any small spillage should be immediately spot cleaned with a clean damp cloth and light wool detergent. Sometimes if it is dirt, you may possibly be better letting the offending item dry out completely and simply brush the dirt out.
Can I wash sheepskin?
We do not recommend washing sheepskin, if you find that spot cleaning and brushing hasn’t helped the best thing to do would be specialist dry cleaning. As our sheepskin covers fit our stools like a sleeve, washing can result in the cover shrinking or damage to the sheepskin.
Our cleaning service
We now offer a cleaning and re-finishing service for the removable Sheepskin covers for all our stools.
We send the sheepskin to the tannery where we source our sheepskin from, who then professionally clean and refinish the sheepskin and we then post it back to you.
