How to Maintain and Clean Sheepskin Slippers


By Eleanna - November 12, 2019

Owning a pair of real sheepskin slippers is a luxury unto itself. However, this luxury will not last unless you take proper care of your beautiful, sheepskin slippers.

To maintain

1. Protective shield

The first thing you should do to ensure that your slippers last for years is to apply a protective coating to the outer surface. You should choose a stain-and-water-resistant shield that is designed specifically for use on suede or leather. Because a spray that is comprised of a non-silicone rain repellent is designed to repel water, your slippers will be shielded from water spotting as well as being more resistant to soiling. Once you have sprayed your slippers, you can simply wipe them down using a damp cloth.

2. Brush

Occasionally, you may need to remove loose dirt or dust from your sheepskin slippers, especially if you wear them outside. Using a suede brush, you can simply follow the nap of the suede to remove any loose dirt or dust. Make sure to clean the brush after every use.

To clean

Because sheepskin is a natural product, it is important to never use a strong cleaning agent on your slippers.

1. Do not wait

To ensure you do not end up having to take your authentic sheepskin slippers to a professional cleaner, you should always clean the stain or spot immediately. If you let a stain sit for days, the chance that you will be able to remove it is rather unlikely.

2. Spot clean the shearling

To clean a spot on the interior of your slipper, you can use a mild detergent or even hair shampoo. All you need to do is use a rag, some cool water, and your cleaner. With the cleaner in hand, gently blot the area that is soiled. Next, you can rinse and then blot away the excess water with a dry towel. Be careful to not allow the water to soak through the suede.

3. Spot clean the suede

If you would prefer a greener method than using suede cleaner or conditioner, you can use one of the following methods.

Vinegar

To spot clean the suede, first, put a small amount of vinegar on a clean rag or cloth. Next, lightly rub the spot or stain, making sure to not oversoak the slipper with the vinegar. If you need to rub vigorously to remove the spot, be sure to not harm the nap. Once the stain is gone, your slippers may retain the vinegar smell. However, the slight smell will dissipate over the next few days.

Eraser

Of course, this sounds odd, but pretty much any type of eraser can work to remove a spot or stain. In fact, it does not matter if you use one at the end of a pencil or even a big square eraser. The only thing you should be sure to do is choose one that is plain and high quality. Novelty eraser with dyes is not recommended as they can transfer that dye to your slipper. Once you have chosen your eraser, simply erase the spot or stain.

4. Clean the whole slipper

Sheepskin slippers should never be put into the washing machine for cleaning. It is recommended that you invest in a shampoo that is specially designed for cleaning your sheepskin slippers as using something else may shorten their lifespan. If this is not possible, you can use a gentle shampoo.

Use a small cloth or soft fabric to apply the cleaner, making sure to scrub every corner inside of the slipper. Be sure to use only a small amount of the cleaner. Otherwise, thoroughly rinsing the cleaner will be very difficult, if not impossible. Once you have finished cleaning the inside of your slippers, rinse the interior with clean, cool water until all of the soap is removed. Once you are done, place them on a clean dry towel to let them air dry. Do not place them in direct sunlight as this may cause fading.

Again, if you are looking for the best sheepskin slippers in Colorado, you can visit the Sheepskin Factory store in Denver, CO for a wide selection of genuine, high-quality sheepskin products.

How To Care For Your Sheepskin Rug


By Eleanna - October 4, 2019

Buying a genuine sheepskin rug can make any room in your home appear more inviting, comfortable, and luxurious. Sheepskin is a natural and high-quality material, so it is no wonder that many people feel intimidated when it comes to caring for and cleaning their sheepskin products. Fortunately, caring for your sheepskin products is a lot more simple than you may think. Below, we have listed a few simple tips and tricks to help you out!

Be Mindful of Your Sheepskin Rug's Environment

When placing a sheepskin area rug in your home, it is important to remember what most affects the quality and appearance of this high-quality material. The two things that you will want to be the most mindful of are sunlight and moisture.

Your rug will be just fine as an accent to a well-lit room, but be careful not to place it in direct, harsh, and constant sunlight. Over time, overexposure to sunlight can begin to make your rug fade or yellow and change in color.

You also want to be sure that the room you place your rug in is not regularly affected by moisture. Moist areas, such as certain basements or rooms that become more humid, can cause damage to the leather underside of your sheepskin rug.

Regularly Brush Your Sheepskin Rug

In its best condition, your rug will be soft, luxurious, and beautiful in any room. However, the natural quality of the sheepskin makes it so that the rug may become knotted or matted down when it is regularly walked or sat upon. Some people believe that this is an unavoidable part of owning sheepskin products, but regular brushing, with a sheepskin-specific brush, can keep your rug looking good as new.

This maintenance tip is also a great way to keep crumbs and other debris from settling deep into your rug, where it is far more difficult to get out.

Clean Your Rug Gently

Accidents are bound to happen, but that doesn't mean that your rug is ruined! If small spills happen, you can easily spot clean your rug with sheepskin shampoo and lukewarm water. Be careful not to rub the stain, and instead press it gently until it lifts out. Rubbing the rug in a rough fashion can cause the stain to set or the sheepskin to become matted.

If you find yourself needing to wash the entire rug, we highly recommend doing so by hand. Fill your tub with lukewarm water and use a sheepskin shampoo. Gently move the rug around in the water and, again, be careful to avoid matting by handling the rug gently.

Heat and tumbling can damage the sheepskin, so wring your rug our gently after washing and allow it to air dry. Be sure that it is completely moisture-free before laying it back down.

Caring for your high-quality and luxurious sheepskin products, such as area rugs, can be simple if approached gently and when taking the necessary steps for proper maintenance. Buy our beautiful sheepskin products online or visit the Sheepskin Factory store in Denver, CO for a range of more genuine high-quality sheepskin rugs.

Motorcycle Sheepskin Seat Covers For Comfort


By Eleanna - August 22, 2019

The time is summer. The weather is gorgeous, and you have the weekend off. Pack the duffel bag and hop on your motorcycle for a long, cool drive across the country, or just across the state. Either way, a couple of hours into your drive, the familiar feeling hits you … in the behind. Your back is sore and your bottom hurts from that hard leather seating that comes standard on most bikes. Never experience that hurt again when you invest in sheepskin motorcycle seat covers!

Typically, when people think sheepskin, they think wool, and then immediately go to warm, thick and hot, but that is not the case with sheepskin. There are many surprising benefits to investing in motorbike sheepskin seat covers for all your motorcycle journeys, long or short. Take a look at just a few below:

Sheepskin is Breathable

This is going to allow you and your rider to stay cool during those long hot summer rides. The air can blow through the fibers and not absorb the heat that makes you sweaty and chaffing throughout your ride. You can stop less and enjoy more of the countryside by keeping your body dry and cool. The same idea works for winter rides, by releasing heat back to your body instead of absorbing the moisture from your body heat and making your seat wet and cold.

Sheepskin is Comfortable

Investing in sheepskin motorcycle seat covers will, at the very least, provide a cushion to sit on that does not burn or stick to your body should you be wearing shorts, or your rider leaning back. Leather seats have little to no give for shock absorption and get very hot when left exposed to the sun, whereas sheepskin covers will keep your comfortable the whole ride through.

Custom Motorcycle Seat Covers

Worried about the cover not fitting? Place your mind at ease by looking into custom sheepskin motorcycle seat covers to ensure no sliding off, cutting into your original seat or simply not fitting. You didn't spend 5 minutes picking out your bike and its features did you? Don't do the same for the accessories meant to keep you comfortable for the long haul.

Durable and Long-Lasting Seat Covers

Speaking of longevity, investing in a sheepskin seat cover will do two very important things for your bike and your bottom. Keeping a seat cover on will keep the original seat in better condition should you choose to trade up. It will not be constantly exposed to weather, sweat, spills, and rubbing from bodyweight. The cover itself is very durable and long-life lasting. It is washable, breathable, and easy to remove or replace for a quick on the road dusting. This is one investment you will be sharing with your fellow riders and family to come for years. Your co-riders will thank you too!

Still on the fence about your purchase? Ask yourself this: What's not to love? These custom seat covers will keep you and your rider more comfortable during rides so you can worry more about whether or not you remembered to pack sunscreen or the map, than when is the next rest stop so I can unstick from my seat. Sheepskin seat covers are durable, long-lasting, washable, and you can customize them to fit your seat! No more sliding off your wet leather seat in the rain or having to put a plastic baggy over it.

Make your purchase online today or stop in and speak to a knowledgeable representative at the Sheepskin Factory. You know you want a reason to ride, so go to Denver, Colorado and check them out today!

Keep Cool in Summer with Sheepskin Car Seat Covers


By Eleanna - July 23, 2019

It doesn't matter if your vehicle is higher-end or lower-end; feeling supremely comfortable in the driver's seat is one of the most important rules of the road. When summer kicks in and delivers bright hot weather, that definitely feels good for the soul, but not when you're in a car. You know the drill: building up a sweat, sticking to the seats, and being trapped by the heat is not a calming influence as you sit in traffic. That’s why sheepskin automobile seat covers are a genius solution for feeling as cool as a cucumber when you put the pedal to the medal.

Natural Fibers

That's right. The thick and woolly natural fibers are actually effective at cooling off your body as you hit the road on a hot day. These hollow breathable fibers can actually help the human body maintain a steady temperature. Sheepskin auto seat covers do all the hard work by absorbing your sweat in mere seconds and zapping it away so much faster and more efficiently than a synthetic material ever could.

Comfort & Protection

Sheepskin car seat covers also keep your passengers cool and dry, and everyone enjoys sitting on a fluffy, soft cushion on any ride near and far. No more fidgeting, no more beads of sweat falling, just enjoying a cozy, breathable experience for you and your body. You could call it "shear comfort."

It's a sensible and smart item to consider for any vehicle and also offers other benefits. For example, sheepskin automobile seat covers are protective over your original upholstery against fading, spills or dirt. Also, if you're traveling on leather seats, there's another reason to smile. Sheepskin car seat covers allow your leather to age like a fine wine. Sheepskin happens to contain natural lanolin, and this amazing ingredient can keep your leather seats supple, soft and fresh-looking.

Sheepskin isn't just for summer. It's an all-year-round accessory for your vehicles. Think of it as nature's great insulator and the ideal body supporter. While the thick, woolly padding cools you off during summer, the same exquisite fibers also keep you snuggly warm during winter travel. Talk about comfort to the max and excellent padding for your bottom; there is nothing quite like sheepskin auto seat covers.

Travel in Style 

A vehicle that sports sheepskin automobile seat covers elevates its status to the next level. These thick woolly covers spell elegant refinement and instantly upgrade your vehicle's interior. The sheepskin covers come in a choice of colors like Pearl, Charcoal, Silver or Camel to match the inside of your car. The one-inch thick covers are custom-made to fit your vehicle's seats like a glove. The fully-lined covers are also washable, bacteria-resistant and hypo-allergenic. 

Sitting on sheepskin may sound like an unusual way to enjoy your ride all-year-round, but the science is in its incredible hollow fibers. Natural, luxe and durable, sheepskin can make your drive ultra-comfortable every time you turn the key's ignition. Hot or cold, it doesn't matter as its natural wicking moisture abilities take over.

Sheepskin's sumptuous texture speaks for itself. If you’re ready to treat yourself with a sheepskin seat cover, shop online or visit our Sheepskin Factory store in Denver, CO to experience the best in genuine sheepskin products.
