> Bed Underlays
Our genuine sheepskin underlays are quilted from 25mm deep wool pile sheepskins and are available in cot, single, king single, double, queen, and king sizes.
Warm in winter and cool in summer, our underlays relieve aching backs, reduce insomnia and invite a comfortable nights sleep.
Unlike woollen woven underlays, sheepskin is more pure in fibres and therefore a greater natural insulator. Sheepskin underlays do not require turning over for change in season like woollen underlays often require. Sheepskin is much denser in the wool pile so provides superior comfort compared to any other bed underlay available.
Sheepskin underlays are extremely durable, will give many many years of rest and comfort and are easy to clean requiring only occasional vacuuming, airing and brushing. Sheepskin underlays are dry cleanable.

CARE AND CLEANING OF YOUR SHEEPSKINS
Sheepskin rugs, underlays and car seat covers will greatly benefit with regular maintenance by:
- Brushing; using a pet brush or comb, this will restore the wool pile where otherwise flattened and bring dust and foreign matters between fibres to the surface,
- Vacuuming; will help also to restore wool pile and collect dust and foreign matters after brushing,
- Airing; open windows, or place sheepskins in a breezy room, over an airing rack or over two chairs, this will help keep sheepskins fresh.
- Spot Clean; lightly soiled areas can be sponged off using clean warm water (and diluted "Woolskin Sheepskin Shampoo" for heavier soils), towelled dried and brushed whilst damp and again when fully dry.
Washing Sheepskin - Important Points to Note
The leather side of the sheepskin is easily damaged by incorrect washing. The main points to note are:
- Only use Woolskin Sheepskin Shampoo which cleans fibres and conditions the hide. Never use products containing enzymes, phosphates, peroxide, alkali or bleach, as these can cause irreversible damage to both the fleece and leather. Most wool wash contains water softening properties, mostly phosphates, which removes the metals from the water. Phosphates will therefore remove the tanning chemicals from the leather of the sheepskin resulting in permanent damage to the sheepskin. Only products which specify that they are suitable for sheepskin should be used.
- Only wash in cold or lukewarm water (up to 40°C/104°F).
- Gently stretch rugs to shape whilst still damp.
- Dry flat over two chairs or an airing rack and away from direct sunlight and any other direct heat source as heat will cause often irreparable damage.
Sheepskin Bed Underlays
Any bed underlays larger than a cot size or single bed size will need to be dry cleaned due to the size and therefore weight of the rug when wet which could cause considerable damage to your washing machine. Cot size and single bed size underlays can be washed in a large capacity washing machine, minimum 7kg capacity.
To wash your cot size or single bed size underlay:
Washing - Machine wash on wool¯ or gentle¯ cycle in lukewarm water (max 40°C/104°F). Use only Woolskin Sheepskin Shampoo or another detergent which specifies that it is suitable for sheepskin. Do not use a wool wash or any other detergent. Spin excess water out. Do not bleach or leave soaking.
Drying - Lay flat over drying/airing rack or over two chairs in an outside position away from direct sunlight. Stretch to shape while damp, and whilst still damp give the rug a good shake and brush to restore wool pile. Do not iron.
Brushing - Brushing when both wet and again when rug is fully dry helps to maintain the wool pile. Use a pet brush, stiff bristled brush or comb and brush in all directions.
NB These washing instructions are only applicable for sheepskin bed underlays, not wool or woollen underlays. The difference between sheepskin underlays and woollen underlays is that sheepskin is a fully natural product, is wool on skin and is suitable for both winter and summer. Woollen underlays are a woven fabric, are lighter in weight, and often have a winter side and a summer side. Please refer to the manufacturers cleaning instructions for woollen underlays.
Sheepskin Bed Underlays are dry cleanable.
