Is sheepskin washable?

Sheepskin can be washed, however a water wash should be your last port of call when it comes to approaching dirt or a spill. Firstly giving a sheepskin product a regular, thorough vacuum and a shake outside is the best place to start when giving it a general clean.

If there are specific areas or stains that need to be targeted try a spot clean before anything else. See my stain removal guide for how to remove specific stains. If you feel your sheepskin product still needs further cleaning consider having it dry cleaned.

Washing a sheepskin at home using water will have positive results on the wool fibres, however it will make the suede on the back harden and overtime can become misshapen.

How do you clean a sheepskin rug at home?

Vacuum vacuum vacuum!!! Sheepskin LOVES a regular, thorough vacuum. If you keep up with this routine and team it with a good shake and air outside in the shade you’ll find that you’ll rarely need to do much else to keep your sheepskin rug clean.

If you do have an unexpected accident as we all sometimes do, the most important thing to remember is to first ‘contain the stain’ so it doesn’t spread. Don’t throw water or other liquids directly onto a stain, this will spread the stain further and can damage the sheepskin backing. Instead use a clean dry towel or paper towels to firmly blot up the excess liquid prior then use a commercial wet stain remover. This can be purchased from most supermarkets.

If the stain covers a very large area, we recommend putting a towel down and standing on it, to quickly blot up the excess. It is important to take up all the liquid you can in this first step as this will ensure you need to use less of the stain remover and will give the best result. Apply Wet Stain Remover and follow manufacturer’s instructions.
