How to Wash your Sheepskin Properly

SHEEPSKIN CARE

Most sheepskin products can be washed using a speciality sheepskin detergent, or dry cleaned. The current and irrevocable trend in commercial cleaning is to eliminate the solvent cleaning process whenever possible. This is due to more stringent VOC emission control worldwide. If a number of sheepskin items can be laundered safely, this will help in reaching the emissions goal and provide an economic method for the operator to fulfil their customer’s needs. Most sheepskin products can be washed either by hand or in a domestic washing machine which provides considerable saving from expensive dry cleaning.

The environmental and economic advantages of washing, the items being washed will be sanitised if the sheepskin shampoo has antibacterial and disinfecting properties. Phosphates will, therefore, remove the tanning chemicals from the leather of the sheepskin resulting in permanent damage to the sheepskin.

The other causes of damage to sheepskin products are heated which causes shrinking, other than The Australian Medical Sheepskin tanned to AS4480.1 1998 and stamped Hi-Temp, and incorrect detergent which causes hardening of the leather.

The estimated cost of dry cleaning a lambskin or medical rug is $25.00 whereas the cost of washing in Woolskin would be 83 cents.

Drying: best results are achieved by drying in a domestic clothes dryer on LOW or WARM setting or drying out of direct sunlight. Drying in a WARM dryer results in the leather maintaining its softness through the gentle ‘milling’ much the same as in the tannery. When air drying, it is necessary to ‘flex’ the sheepskin to soften the leather.

Frequency: Medical sheepskins should be washed a minimum of weekly using a detergent with antibacterial and disinfecting properties to prevent cross infection.

Baby lambskins should be washed regularly, much the same as other bedding to maintain a clean fresh environment for the child.

Car seat covers of good quality and manufacture should be washed a minimum of annually to maintain the benefit of the wool pile in maintaining comfort and life of the sheepskin.

Sheepskin clothing should be washed regularly, as with other garments, and the suede facing protected with a water & oil repellent spray which will aid future cleaning.

UGG boots: Some UGG Boots come with a water repellent treatment which is applied in the tannery, however, this is not permanent and reapplication will be required after the normal wear or after cleaning.

Why Sheepskin is Better as a Yoga Mat

Why Sheepskin is Better as a Yoga Mat

You might have overheard some people in your Yoga class claiming that sheepskin is better as a Yoga mat. And you couldn’t help but ask how a piece of a dead animal’s skin is better than the one that you’ve been using- that sticky- fabricated designed for yoga mat? Well, according to our research, there are many reasons why sheepskin is better and some are found below.Double Sheepskin Yoga Mat

Why Sheepskin is Better as Yoga mat?

Sheepskin is natural unlike any typical rubber sticky made yoga mat which consumed much energy and fumes in making them. And since sheepskin is natural, using it is good as saying you are taking yourself away from the toxic of rubber made yoga mat.

Sheepskin is natural so it will not give off an electric charge that synthetic yoga mats give. This is because while synthetic yoga mat is 100% insulator of electrical energy, sheepskin is acts only as a partial insulator and provides undisturbed release of static electricity created by the natural friction of the body and the environment allowing the user to experience deeper states of connection to their Self and the Universe

 Sheepskin, unlike synthetic yoga mat:

  • promotes better blood circulation and body relaxation
  • absorbs sweat immediately and submits that into the air 7 x faster.
  • provides 100% natural comfort due to its 100% natural softness without a touch of any softening chemicals.
  • won’t irritate the sensitive skin, but help heal it instead because it has anti-bacteria resistance feature.
  • contains lanolin making it gentle on the skin. Lanolin is a basic substance similar to that found in human skin so using a sheepskin as a yoga mat will feel like being caressed and touched by Mother Nature.

These reasons are the same reasons why more and more yogis are becoming fans of using sheepskin yoga mats and why more and more yoga leaders and teachers, especially Kundalini Yoga leaders and teachers, recommend them over the use of the rubber, super-sticky, claimed-to-be eco friendly yoga mats.

But I know what you’re thinking. Aren’t yogis supposed to avoid eating or wearing any animal products or by-products just like what the dedicated jivamukti style of yoga promotes? Well, to tell you the truth, that crossed my mind too, so I went on to do a little research only to found out the there’s no rule that is against eating, wearing or using animal products in Yoga. Kundali Yoga spiritual leader Bhajan, when asked about using skin products in Yoga, he said that the skins were just a by-product of the meat and that the sheep was helped to get to a higher place in its spiritual evolution when its skin was used for meditation.
