Sheepskin coat and jacket cleaning

Sheepskin is a really warm and cosy material for winter wears but unfortunately gets dirty very quickly.

Even if it stays in the wardrobe, it can become dusty and loses sight. We love our sheepskin coat for the chilly winter season and wants to keep it clean and refreshed for long term use.

When it comes to cleaning, most of our sheepskin items are leather specialist dry clean only.

We should not take risk of cleaning sheepskin items at home. It is because we can’t use any cleaning product for sheepskin cleaning. Cheap and harsh chemicals can damage sheepskin permanently. We should always approach a professional for advice on sheepskin clothes.

Most to the time sheepskin coat or jacket are hand-stitched and therefore very fragile. It can be difficult to clean as it can get damaged during the cleaning process. Vintage sheepskin coat can be very fragile and cannot be cleaned in a machine so at Farthings we can use the process of Ozone Treatment to remove all unwanted odour, kills all bacterias and viruses. The Ozone process does not remove any marks and will remove most odours.

Sometimes sheepskin items are recommended for spot clean only and for these items, we use the best and safest spot cleaning products.

We always recommend storing sheepskin clothes in a natural fabric bag which allows it to breath properly.

We at Farthings Cambridge and Trumpington take good care of sheepskin clothes cleaning. We always check the manufacturer’s care label instructions and use suitable cleaning products and process.

Sheepskin garments must be dried in a well-ventilated area rather than near any heating device.
