|SHEEPSKIN SHOULD ALWAYS BE WASHED USING A SHEEPSKIN SHAMPOO, WOOL-WASH IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
Sheepskins provide comfort because their ultra-dense wool pile greatly reduces pressure, shear, friction and moisture. Sheepskins have up to 6,000 wool fibres per sq cm in its pile, therefore sheepskin provides a natural cushion to distribute the weight of the infant or patient, in the case of medical sheepskins, and driver & passengers in the case of car seat covers. This relieves the pressure at vulnerable points on the body and the wool fibres reduce the stress and friction on the skin. Because the wool fibres absorb up to 33% of their dry weight in moisture without feeling damp, they can rapidly absorb and dissipate moisture such as perspiration and urine away from the source, providing comfort.
TO COMB OR NOT: Baby rugs, medical rugs, car seat covers and numnahs should not be combed after washing. When the sheepskin is washed the wool pile retains the natural crimp that provides the pressure reduction, thus its natural comfort. Additionally, with baby lambskins, it is not recommended that the wool pile is combed out.
