The technical characteristics of wool are our everyday language. Just to get a little technical for a moment, wool properties boast: heat and moisture regulation, acoustic performance, flame resistance, antistatic abilities, indoor air filtration capabilities, odor suppression, UV absorbency and on top of all that, sheepskin wool is super easy to care for.
Care and Cleaning:
Regular vacuuming with a plain suction vacuum cleaner* will help to maintain wool fibers. Longer wool rugs benefit from occasional brushing with a wire pet brush (pet slicker pad). Small spills can be sponged off with a damp cloth. Avoid exposure to strong direct sunlight as UV will damage the natural fibers and fade dyed sheepskins. Do not store in damp or wet conditions as the natural leather pelt may deteriorate. Treat sheepskin like one of the family.
*Turbo and revolving brush vacuum cleaners can damage the wool fiber and cause frizziness. These are a strict NO!
Brushing is effective on unshorn, long wool products only. After washing, the wool fibers will likely revert back to their natural curly state. Brushing with a wire wool comb when wet, and once dry, will help restore the fluffy appearance and natural loft of the fibers.
Dogs, pets and children all love sheepskin, but rest assured small stains and light soiling can be spot cleaned easily with a damp cloth and mild detergent.
