CARE OF YOUR SHEEPSKIN RUG
Your sheepskin rug is produced from our native Dorset breeds of sheep which are born and reared traditionally on our farm in Dorset and then sent to the Tannery in Devon for curing and final processing into the finished Sheepskin rug, and keeping them in perfect condition is easy!
Small marks can be removed with a damp cloth, and the wool conditioned with a stiff brush or dog grooming tool (such as the type pictured below) which are available in most pet or farm stores. Teasing the fibers every so often will help to keep it in a fantastically soft condition.
For more substantial washing it is recommended that your sheepskin is dry-cleaned by a specialist to clean and soften the leather with a comb and polish to the wool.
Alternatively you may hand wash the rug in warm water (approximately 30°C). Air dry the rug flat and without direct heat. Do not tumble dry or dry on a radiator or in direct sunlight as this will distort or shrink the leather. It is important that when the rug is nearly dry, to work the skin by hand, stretching the leather to retain its shape and soften it. Comb the wool gently with a medium wire pet brush (such as the one pictured above) to encourage the original fluffy appearance.
Do not use biological or phosphate based detergents.
