More about sheepskin Wool is nature's miracle fibre, it can't be beaten by any man made products. Excellent insulator and ventilator, meaning it will both keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Wool is not known to cause allergies and has natural disinfectant properties within its fibres.
Tanning is a method by which our products are preserved. It involves blended recipes that maintain the natural fibre’s colour, shape and construction. The sheepskin is immersed in a formula to bond the collagen proteins that make up the skin. Tanning has been practiced for thousands of years to preserve the natural wool fleece and retain adhesion and longevity. Although we use only the highest quality skins, no tanner will guarantee wool skins to be 100% dye fast and some colour loss may be apparent.
Sheepskins are not bleached in the way that fabrics are bleached to achieve a white colour. We do not produce pure white sheepskins because we try to retain the natural colour. We seek to enhance the natural colour, which results in a natural ivory shade with a creamy yellow hue, dyed or darker shade sheepskins change and cover this.
Please place dyed sheepskin out of direct sunlight otherwise expect some colour loss or change of colour. Your beautiful sheepskin should last a life time if used as it's intended.
Wool Blanket Care
To be on the safe side TBC put Dry Clean Only on the care label as it's easy to shrink or damage wool if you wash it incorrectly. You can machine wash your blankets if you have a gentle wool or hand-wash setting, making sure to use a specialty wool detergent and a low temperature setting. Heat and friction can shrink and distort the shape of the wool so you want to use the most gentle and coldest setting your machine has. As it is different from machine to machine we can’t guarantee every machine will be able to wash a blanket without problems, but we have tried it ourselves and they turned out just lovely. Ideally you want a hand-wash setting and a 20 degree or cold water temperature. Be careful not to just use the wool setting - on our machine that's 40 degrees which is likely to cause some shrinkage. Be sure to give your blankets a good shake before popping them in the machine to remove any loose bits of debris. Machine washing is not recommended for cashmere. Drying Your Blanket Some machines might not spin after a hand-wash setting but a short fast spin is great for the first stage of drying your blanket. When you take it out of the washing machine, give it another good shake and reshape it if necessary. You can gently stretch or straighten wool as required to get it back to its normal shape before hanging it up to dry. Remember that heat causes shrinkage so don't hang it over or next to a radiator. When it's nearly dry, we pop ours into the tumble drier on the lowest setting (ideally 20 degrees) for 10 minutes and it comes out fresh and fluffy. Once your blanket is completely dry it's ready to get snuggled up in.
