In short about our sheepskins for baby's…
We like to keep the wool pile of our sheepskins short! They are specially shaved to a short length so that no long hairs can get into the mouth or eyes or the nails get stuck in them.
All our Medical Grade (golden yellow) lambskins are machine washable & dryable and all our natural white furs are not.
The best way to maintain your sheepskin is to beat it out regularly, air it outside and brush it briefly. This way you will keep and keep the sheepskin beautiful.
We recommend waiting as long as possible before washing your sheepskin so that all the good qualities of the wool remain in it. Usually, in the event of a minor accident, just wipe with a damp washcloth.
If you want to wash your coat, you can do so with our Medical Grade (golden yellow) coats on a 30-degree wool wash program. We have a special ecological wool detergent with lanolin for this. You can also dry our Medical Grade coats at a low temperature in the dryer. Washing coats remains your own responsibility.

All resources used in the tanning and finishing of our pelts comply with essential EU directives related to animal welfare and the preservation and protection of the environment (ecological). Our furs are tanned according to REACH regulations. There won't be any! AZO dyes used in our coats or their production.

The risk of asthma decreases.
Recent research shows that sheepskins are very healthy for babies? The article states that when children sleep on a sheepskin in the first three months of their life, they are 79% less likely to develop asthma and allergies at the age of 6 (click for article). This is due to the microbes naturally present in the fur.
Wool hypoallergenic is.
Because no climate can develop in wool in which fungi, dust mites or bacteria can thrive, wool is ideally suited for people with allergies.
Self-cleaning and resistant to bacteria.
A sheepskin is resistant to dirt and bacteria and is self-cleaning? This is due to the structure of the fiber, which contains protein as the main component. This acts actively against bacteria and viruses that do not get the chance to multiply. Click here for more information about caring for your fur.
