The shape follows the natural contours of the two hides sewn together, end to end. So each item varies slightly.
Eco-friendly tanning, with no chrome or harmful substances is most often called “medical tanned sheep skin.” This gives the common gold color. Shorn to an even 1.25 inch, the fleece allows airflow under pressure that’s comfortable and dry on skin.
This is a natural product. Although it is washable, washing too often or vigorously weakens the resilient properties of the fleece. It is normal that the fleece becomes springy and less straight after the first washing.
- Shake, fluff and brush as needed to separate and revive the fibers.
- Hand wash or delicate machine wash in cold or medium water.
- Use gentle soap sparingly, no additives, bleach, softener, etc.
- Air dry away from sunlight. Stretch occasionally from the outer edges to maintain the shape.
If cutting the sheepskin for a specific size, use a sharp razor blade not scissors which could crosscut fleece.
The photos are typical of this variety.
