Ounce for ounce, sheepskin wool products are stronger than steel. Your sheepskin items will last for years, with minimum care, by brushing and shaking them out or by vacuuming. Impossible to copy synthetically, sheepskin and it’s wool fibers offer an astounding list of natural qualities. And they make great gifts.

They are warm in the winter and cool in the summer & prevent excessive sweating when you sit on them, providing natural comfort you find only in real sheepskin. That is why they are so popular used as seat covers on cars, trucks, planes, motorcycles and any place you sit. They are also good for healing and preventing bed sores. We can make custom seat cover to fit almost any seat.

Washing / Cleaning

We recommend the following method to clean our sheepskin rugs:
-Vacuum the sheepskin.
-Brush the sheepskin with a medium firm wire brush (example: a dog brush) to keep the wool fibers separate and prevent matting.
-Spot clean any stains with dish washing soap and water as soon as possible after they occur. Use a little water in a bowl with 10% dish washing soap. Use a white terrycloth like a wash rag, then rinse area with clean water, wipe dry with terry cloth. Do not try to wash the entire rug in a washing machine, you will destroy the rug.
-Air dry inside away from direct heat or sunlight.

We do not guarantee sheepskins through washing.


Dry our sheepskin products over a line, air dry out of direct sun. It is a good idea to stretch out your skin by puling firmly around all sides as it drys, not too hard however. Washing & drying can take a bit of the original luster out of a skin, so you might want to spot shampoo and rinse if you get a small area dirty.


You can also have your sheepskin items and wool bedding dry cleaned, but be sure the cleaners know it is wool. Some cleaning chemicals will turn sheepskin wool products green.

Long pile sheepskin rugs rarely need to be machine washed. Vacuum your sheepskin rug as you would any rug. Most dust, dirt and spills remain on the upper surface of the sheepskin wool fibers. If something sticky is found on the sheepskin rug you can clean it up using the suds from mixing liquid soap and water together. If Urine (pet or people) is the problem we recommend using “urine gone” or a similar product on our sheepskin products.
