Care: Regular Maintenance – Sheepskin must be allowed to dry between rides so that it is given a chance to stabilize. Prolonged use of the sleeve without proper drying may cause stretching or contorting of the leather resulting in damage. Once dry, a light brushing of the sheepskin with a pet brush will separate the wool fibres and help to keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride.
Washing – Sheepskin should be hand washed in cold water using a mild soap designed for sheepskin. We offer one of the best sheepskin detergents on the market, manufactured by Eucalan. Two other detergents that have posted good results and can be purchased off-the-shelf are Johnson n Johnson baby shampoo and Ivory Snow Flakes. Remove excess water by carefully squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle only. Do not wring the sleeve out as it may result in damage.
Drying – Sheepskin should be line dried out of the sun. Lightly stretch the sleeve during the drying process to avoid shrinkage. Please do not put this in the dryer or on a heating device. Once dry, lightly brush the sheepskin with a pet brush to separate the wool fibres.
