Natural coloured black sheepskins can actually be any colour from dark chocolate brown to charcoal grey or lighter cameo cream with light brown edges. Each sheepskin is unique and they are not available in large quantities.

Average dimensions of a natural black or coloured spring lamb rugs are about 60cm x 90cm but each skin is unique.

Sheepskin rugs are perfect as a soft throw over a chair or sofa, or at the end of a bed. And you can also display them on an ottoman. They can also be used in a hallway, beside a bed or in front of a fireplace to great effect.

Your carefully selected Sheepskin may have been tightly packaged for the journey home and so the wool may appear flattened. Wool fibers are very resilient and will bounce back to their original springy appearance. A vigorous shake will help restore the soft, fluffy appearance of the wool. Fluff them up with a sheepskin wool carding brush. Any fold marks from packaging will disappear once the skin has been removed from the package for several days.

For full sheepskin washing instructions with photos please read our blog.


Washing
Machine or hand wash your sheepskin in warm water (38°C/100°F) using the Gorgeous Creatures Woolskin Wash. Spin to remove excess water. Colours should be professionally drycleaned only. North America customers -  Please only use detergents which are non-alkaline, non-iconic and do not contain biological enzymes: Do not use Woolite or laundry detergents such as Tide.

Drying
Dry your Sheepskin flat or on a line and stretch to shape while damp. Keep away from direct sunlight and artificial heat. Do not tumble dry your Sheepskin. Take care not to place the Sheepskin on a radiator, steam pipe or in front of a fan heater as this may damage the Sheepskin. Do not iron or bleach the Sheepskin.

Brushing
After washing, the wool may revert back to its natural curly state. You can help restore the fluffy appearance by brushing the wool while it is wet and again when it is dry using a sheepskin carding brush.
