Benefits of Sheepskin for Babies and Children

Genuine Sheepskins boast a number of unique natural properties that make them an ideal product for your baby and children.

  1. Temperature regulation: Sheepskins have natural insulating properties that help them regulate body temperature. They can provide warmth in cold environments and effectively dissipate excess heat in warmer conditions. This ability to adapt to different temperatures make them suitable for maintaining a stable and comfortable body temperature, particularly for newborns that are not yet able to regulate their own body temperature.

  2. Breathability: Sheepskin fibres are naturally breathable, allowing air to circulate through the material. This breathability helps prevent overheating and keeps your baby’s skin dry. It creates a microclimate between your baby’s body and the sheepskin, which reduces the risk of sweating and discomfort. 
  1. Moisture absorption: Sheepskins are known for their excellent moisture-wicking properties. They can absorb moisture, such as sweat (or spilled liquids!), and release them into the air through evaporation. This feature helps keep your baby’s skin dry, reducing the chances of irritation and rashes. 
  1. Soft and comfortable: Sheepskins are incredibly soft and plush, providing a comfortable surface for babies to lie on. The natural fibres are hypoallergenic and gentle on delicate skin, making them perfect for babies and children with sensitive skin. 
  1. Pressure redistribution and support: Sheepskins have been found to distribute pressure more evenly than other materials. This is particularly important for babies who might have underdeveloped skin and are more susceptible to pressure sores. 
  1. Cosy and secure environment: Sheepskins are soft and snuggly, providing a nurturing environment that mimics the cosy and protective conditions of the womb. This sense of comfort can aid in promoting better sleep and relaxation.

  2. Long-lasting durability: Investing in genuine sheepskin products for your baby isn’t just about short-term comfort, it’s also about long-term durability. Our high-quality sheepskins are designed to withstand everyday use and can accompany your child through various stages of growth, making it a practical and sustainable choice.

When it comes to selecting products for your precious little one, genuine sheepskins stand out as natural materials that offer exceptional benefits. From Their natural temperature regulation and breathability to their gentle care for sensitive skin, sheepskin products create a nurturing environment that promotes comfort and well-being. Whether you're seeking a pram liner, baby rug, or footmuff, choosing sheepskin means choosing the best for your baby.

The Benefits of Sheepskin

Why are sheepskins good for your health?

Sheepskin has many natural health benefits for people of all ages. Because sheepskin is so incredibly soft, it is extremely effective at relieving aches and pains. The naturally crimped, woollen hairs of sheepskin provide a cushioning effect for your body. Research has shown that because each fibre contains a three-dimensional, crimped curl, it almost behaves like a tiny spring. This springy nature of sheepskin fibres on mass acts like a supportive mattress for your entire body. Sheepskin helps to absorb the weight of your body in an even distribution too. It is therefore advantageous for people who suffer with joint problems by providing support for pressure points and achy limbs.

Do sheepskins keep your Baby cool?

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?

Is sheepskin good for the skin?

Sheepskin is renowned for being kind to the skin because it is amazingly, bacteria-repellent, and liquid, dirt, and stain-resistant. Its fleece is naturally resistant to the growth of dust mites, mould, odour and bed-bugs. The natural wicking properties of this amazing natural textile mean that it can draw moisture away from the skin. By keeping a dry environment, bacteria are less likely to thrive. The breathable nature of sheepskin allows air to circulate, once again, reducing the chances of hot and clammy conditions that pesky bacteria love. Moreover, sheepskin is hypo-allergenic and has been found to soothe skin. It contains a natural substance called lanolin which is an effective treatment for dry, itchy skin. Sheepskin is ideal for sensitive skin because it can help to soothe and de-sensitise skin rashes and skin conditions, for example, eczema, psoriasis and cellulitis. In this way, natural sheepskin is medically magical and perfect for precious young skin and beyond. Please see our section on sheepskin care tips too to find out how you can also regularly wash your sheepskin to keep it clean and in excellent condition. It is also worthy to note that we do not use any harsh dyes or chemicals on our products too during the tanning process.

Maintenance of Sheepskins

How to care for, wash & clean your Baby's sheepskin

Soft Brush Cleaning

Sheepskin products are satisfyingly easy to care for. Being naturally dirt and stain resistant, they are very low maintenance and do not require regular cleaning. This is perfect for life’s fast pace! If you do start to notice your sheepskin getting a little dirty, first and foremost, all you need to do is give it a brush with a soft brush. A quick brush and a shake will restore your sheepskin to its full and fluffy appearance. By combing the sheepskin, air gets back into its natural fibres and brings it back to full lustre again.

Spot Cleaning

If your sheepskin product becomes lightly soiled over time, it can be spot cleaned using a damp, clean cloth.

Heavier Soiling

If your beloved woolen product becomes soiled more heavily, you can either hand wash or machine wash the item at no more than 30 degrees Celsius on a gentle ‘wool’ cycle. We strongly recommend using a sheepskin detergent in your washing machine. This is essential so that the leather backing does not harden. The sheepskin detergent we recommend using is called ‘Woolskin Woolwash & Shampoo for Sheepskin, Lambskin, Shearling, Fleece & Woollens (500ml)’ and can be found on Amazon.

The detergents that are found in normal washing powders or pods, will attack the suede making the skin brittle. These harsher detergents can even discolour fleeces and possibly lead to disintegration.

A specialist wool detergent will keep the skin supple, yet it will very effectively gently clean the sheepskin – seeing off any dust mites, pet allergens or mould spores.


Sheepskin products should be dried in an airy place but must be put out of direct sunlight. If you wish to dry your sheepskin in a tumble dryer, this can be done on a low heat setting. It is essential however that you do not dry your item on a radiator or heater. Remember to shake, lightly brush and stretch out your sheepskin after it has dried.

To Note

It is worthy to note that sheepskin is a natural product and therefore some discolouration can occur during the washing process. This can equally occur if the product is left in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.

When you first receive your sheepskin, you may notice a distinctive lanolin smell. This is due to natural oils that exist within sheepskin. This natural odour can be intensified after the products have spent long periods confined in packaging. This is completely normal and simply airing the item after unpacking should quickly reduce any residual natural fragrances.
