Things to avoid:
Do not tumble dry
Do not dry on a radiator
Do not store in a plastic bag
Do not wash with biological washing detergent
Do not use bleach
Hot water will damage the sheepskin
The method of washing and drying is basically the same for all sheepskin products. Keep the product away from direct sunlight as this will change the texture of the wool as it dries, and there should be no artificial heat as this will produce a similar effect. Use a specialised sheepskin detergent or a very mild detergent like Woolite. Handwash only.
