as it may seem, sheepskin can be laundered, if you take the extra
time to make sure it is done carefully and properly. Just follow
these simple instructions:
- Remove metal hooks
- Place sheepskin
in washing machine (An oversized washer may be necessary).*
- Using cold
water and gentle cycle settings, wash sheepskin with
approximately 2 ounces of shampoo. DO NOT USE LAUNDRY DETERGENT
OR WOOLITE! Both can ruin the skins. We recommend Kookaburra,
a mild shampoo with conditioner specifically designed for sheepskin
can be partially dried in the dryer on a gentle air setting to
speed the drying process. DO NOT USE ANY HEAT AT ANY POINT IN
THE CLEANING PROCESS!**
- Finish drying
the skin by hanging it or laying it fleece down out of direct
sunlight. Carefully comb the fleece in one direction while it
is still wet. Make sure that the sheepskin has dried completely
- When the
skin is dry, use a steel
pet brush to bring back to original straight haired appearance.
When brushing use short upward strokes and be careful not to pull
the fleece hard.

shrink, causing irreparable damage.
few handy tips will help keep you sheepskin looking its best day
to day, and help improve the length of wear.

covers whenever you vacuum your car's interior.

or cat brush occasionally to "pull up" the nap.

it is good idea to leave windows open a crack to allow any moisture
in car to escape.
- If your passenger
and driver seats are identical, rotate them every 1-2 years to
share the wear.

get soaked through - remove them and allow them to hang-dry before
