Our luxurious Naturally Sheepskins sheepskin baby rugs are sourced from Australian Merino sheep. They are renowned for having the finest and softest wool in the world. Our sheepskins are carefully hand-selected for their high-end quality, softness, and uniformity. The wool has been shorn to a short length of approximately 28mm ensuring safety for babies from new-born age onwards. The fur will not become matted, and it is incredibly easy to spot clean which is perfect - because let’s face it, babies can make a mess! Our baby comforters are specially tanned and individually sanitised too in order to provide them with a safe, natural, and healthy place to rest and play. One of the most amazing natural properties of sheepskin is body temperature-regulation. Many people know that the wool fibres in sheepskin help to increase heat when it is too cold, thus keeping you warm. Additionally, though, sheepskin helps to reduce heat when it is too hot. This is particularly beneficial for new-born babies, especially those born prematurely or with a low birth weight. Babies are unable to regulate their own temperature – particularly in warm environments. The natural woollen fibres of sheepskin promote air circulation, insulate against heat and wick away moisture from the skin. These qualities found in sheepskin help to keep babies cool in the summer and warm in the winter from head to toe. Scientists also believe that the temperature-regulating properties of sheepskin can help to promote better blood circulation. This is particularly beneficial when adults are lay or sat down because sheepskin helps to keep their bodies at the right temperature. Isn’t it incredible what those natural fibres can do?
