Care and Washing Instructions

Wool Care Shampoo

This specialised wash was developed specifically for washing and conditioning sheepskin. Many detergents will do a good job with wool, but Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo not only washes and disinfects wool, it also conditions sheepskin leather; keeping it soft and supple.

This detergent is specifically formulated to clean, disinfect and condition washable sheepskin.  It kills and will remove mite allergens from all natural fibre products; including sheepskin, wool, fur, and feathers- an important consideration for people with dust mite allergies.

Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo is available in a handy 250 ml dispensing container that enables you to measure the exact quantity needed.  There is enough in a 250 ml bottle to wash a sheepskin 10 times. Also available in an economical 1 Litre container.

Specific Washing instructions

As our Shear Comfort Original items are backed with natural sheepskin, they require a slightly different washing technique from the XD1900, which is backed with fabric.

Please follow the washing instructions for your chosen item. 

Shear Comfort Natural Sheepskin

It is recommended that Shear Comfort natural sheepskin items are washed with the Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner, which contains antibacterial tea tree oil and is effective against dust mites. If an alternative is used, it must be a non-ionic liquid detergent which has no enzymes, phosphates, peroxides, alkali or bleach.

Domestic washing instructions

On a gentle cycle, wash your Shear Comfort product with approximately 20ml of Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. Water must not exceed 80°C. 

Industrial Washing instructions

  • Wash on a gentle cycle wash for approximately 10 minutes in hot water up to 60°C using Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. 
  • Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in warm water at approximately 35°C
  • Wash on gentle cycle without detergent for approximately 8 minutes in water up to 80°C for thermal disinfection. 
  • Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in cool water. 

 

Shear Comfort XD1900

Shear Comfort XD1900 does not require special shampoo, and can be washed with normal household detergent up to a temperature of 80°C, although you can use Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo to condition the wool and utilise the fungicidal and mitricidal properties of the shampoo. 

XD1900 products can be laundered in the same way as Shear Comfort Natural sheepskins.
