Sheepskins were always a standard for us with our baby. Everywhere we went, they provided a safe, soft space for laying bub down or nappy changing. At home, we used them in the cot for a warm, cosy sleep under or over his sheets. We love that it’s a natural fibre rather than all the synthetic options around. They are easy to care for and clean which is important for convenience.

Thank you to all the fans of our Sheepies who recommend these far and wide! Click on description below for greater detail about this product including care instructions. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When your sheepskin arrives the fibres will initially be tight from shipping and being squashed in transit. After a few days you should find it fluffs naturally and the fibres are allowed to expand. A good shake will definitely fluff it up and get air circulating in the fibres.

ECOWOOL BABY SHEEPSKIN

Ecowool sheepskin rugs are environmentally-friendly and made exclusively from New Zealand sheepskins. They are also manufactured 100% in New Zealand by Eco Wool. The Ivory coloured lambskin rugs have environmentally friendly tanning unlike many cheap brands that use harsh chemicals. If you are like us, this is very important to you. Parents who love sheepskins use them daily at home and when out visiting.  The size approx. 30″ x 20″ or 50cm x 76cm  which is larger than most sheepskins which we love.

The sheepskins are expertly trimmed, machined and washed and left to dry in the sun. The fleece is then combed over and over by hand and finally polished to enhance the natural lustre of the sheep’s wool. The finished rug takes over 25 stages, expertly carried out by skilled hands. A lovely sheepskin rug for your baby.

You rarely need to wash these but the manufacturer recommend easily hand or gently machine washed. The guidelines will come with your rug. If you click on the word description below, you can discover more about this great product if you need.

Why have a sheepskin?
Affectionately known as a Sheep or a  lambie, a lambskin rug is easy to use and wash with no fuss. It has always been my go to baby item for comfort and cleanliness as bub and I move around visiting friends and family. The machine washable baby sheepskin has no joins or backing, just soft hide leather on the reverse of the wool.
There is lots of research showing how babies settle into the warmth and comfort of wool, crying less and sleeping more. Have a look around the internet for more on this topic.

Why short pile?
Our preference is for short wool fibres so this is all we sell. Short fibres support baby better and are a little easier to keep clean and remove any concerns about a baby’s face getting lost in the fibres.

Where Should I use my sheepskin?
In the cot, on our lounge floor, down the park, anywhere that I am visiting people, under his playgym, picnics with friends, in the backyard. I believe this is the most easy to care portable, safe and natural home for my baby.

Why do parents love a sheep skin for baby?
Personally, I find “my sheepie” to be the most useful & versatile way to help me care for my baby when out and about! When I need a safe and familiar place to lay my son that is clean and smells familiar, whatever the surface, this is his movable home! It is light and easy to transport, does not need special cleaning or lugging about. It has no moving parts to break. There is no off gassing from cheap bassinet mattresses, it’s just natural and easy. Here are just a few places I use my sheepskin.

Is Washing easy?
You will be able to enjoy your Sheepskin for many years, provided you follow the care instructions detailed below.

When you first open your sheepskin, the wool may appear flattened from being packaged. Wool fibres are very resilient and will bounce back to their original springy appearance soon.
A vigorous shake will also help restore the soft, fluffy appearance of the wool. Any fold marks from packaging will disappear once the skin has been removed from the package for a few days. I love putting mine in the sun to keep it fresh and get a good “sun clean” as well.

Storage

Should you wish to store your Sheepskin at any time, place it in a cool airy place avoiding direct sunlight. Packaging in plastic bags for an extended period of time is not recommended as the Sheepskin fibres will not breathe and condensation may occur in warm conditions.

Washing

The unique tanning process enables your Sheepskin to be easily hand or machine washed. It is important not to use hot water when washing Sheepskins as this may damage the pelt of the Sheepskin. Full Washing instructions are below for people who prefer more detailed information.

Hand Washing Use a mild liquid household detergent in cold or warm water (max 40degreesC/105degreesF). Do not use soap or washing powders containing enzymes or bleach, or which are alkaline. Do not use fabric softeners. Rinse thoroughly in warm water. Hand squeeze as much water from the Sheepskin as possible or spin in the washing machine. We recommend biodegradable soaps and Lanolin based wash products.

Detailed Washing Instructions from Ecowool New Zealand

Sheepskin Care and Storage

Sheepskin is incredibly easy to care for, it has an inherent natural ability to repel dirt and liquid.

A regular vacuum using the standard nozzle (only) or shaking the rug is generally all that is required to keep your sheepskin clean.

Your product may have been tightly packaged for shipping and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibers are very resilient and will bounce back to their original soft, fluffy appearance with a vigorous shake. Lay the skin flat and any fold marks will disappear naturally after a few days.

In the event further cleaning is required then please follow these specific guidelines
