Icelandic Sheepskins

Cleaning is easy and pretty straight-forward:

  • Mix a wool specific detergent with warm water (as per detergents directions) to produce foam;
  • Using the foam only (do not soak or submerge the sheepskin in water) work the foam over the pelt, pat dry with a clean cloth, shake and leave to dry;
  • Comb when dry and you're all done.

Sami Reindeer

Spot clean as needed, vacuum occasionally with a brush attachment. Note that if vacuuming do not use any vacuum attachment that utilizes a 'beater bar' as it might damage the brittle hair of the reindeer hide.

If creased of wrinkled, use a conservative amount of steam from a clothes steamer or steaming kettle and brush to lay the hair flat.

North American Buffalo Hides
