Caring for Moo & Sheepskin
Naturally durable, cowhide is a timeless material that preserves the original look of the leather, retaining the drawing path characteristic of each hair. No two cowhides are ever the same, making each piece of furniture authentically one-of-a-kind.
- Regular brushing with a pet brush or similar will assist in retaining the true characteristics of this finish.
- Professional specialist cleaning recommended
- Spot clean stains as soon as possible using a damp sponge and mild detergent, and pat gently with a soft towel to absorb the water.
Sheepskins are one of nature’s greatest insulators, adding texture and warmth with their sumptuous, lush deep pile. Timothy Oulton uses premium sheepskin hides from New Zealand that are naturally soft, luxurious and durable.
Brisk shaking and regular brushing of the wool helps restore the soft, fluffy appearance and feel of the lambskin.
- On short-haired Baa Baa sheepskin: Regular brushing with a pet brush or similar helps retain the soft, fluffy appearance and feel of the sheepskin.
