Sheepskin (Leicester)

These organically tanned pelts are thick and lush with great padding which makes them perfect for use on the floor for tummy time as well as on furniture for decoration.

Wool is naturally flame resistant and static resistant. Studies have shown that babies sleeping on wool settle more quickly, wake and cry less, sleep longer, and gain weight faster. When used for bedding it is recommended that babies under 12 months old are positioned on their backs and the lambskin is covered with a fitted sheet.

We only trade with skins that are left natural that means no shape cutting or wool dye/bleach. That gives you a unique skin with slight difference in shape, size and smoothies of skin side of pelt. Un-manipulated wool has a good level of lanolin (which is what gives wool its soothing properties). Please note that variations may occur, we do our best to describe/picture the skins for you to receive a product that corresponds to your expectations. 

Wool’s soft hollow fibers “breathe” and help regulate body temperature so wool keeps baby warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s hot. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet, keeping baby always dry and comfortable.

New skins may shed slightly and skin side of may dust on textiles, make sure to protect furniture accordingly. 

  • Care Instructions

    These organically tanned (chrome free) pelts come from organic Swedish farms, they offer great padding which makes them perfect to use on the floor for tummy time as well as in bed or on furniture for decoration. 

    Sheepskin is a natural material that needs some taking care off. In return you get a beautiful product that ages with grace and last you a lifetime. We recommend that you shake the skin outside regularly and to vacuum it occasionally. Hang it outside on a slightly damp day, this will not only keep your skin clean, but will also help keep the fur soft and lush. In winter you can clean the pelt by dragging the skin, fur side down in clean snow. Be carful of wetting the skin side as organically tanned (chrome free) leather may become dry and brittle from contact with water. 

    Every skin arrives with written care and washing instructions.
