Sheepskin Shorn and Fiber
We have specifically chosen only short shorn lambskin rugs for baby. Our baby sheepskin rugs are tanned to be sanitary and clipped to comply as a medical-use skin. They appear in neonatal intensive care nurseries throughout Australia. They are much easier to care for than a longer shorn lambskin rug.
Short shorn lambskins do not have the matting problems that often occur of longer woolen, unshorn lambskins. The short fibers of our lambskin rugs are buoyant and resilient, creating a soft and cozy “cushion effect”. Also, babies can not suck on the short shorn like they can on a long wool fiber. We've also been careful to source a baby sheepskin rug tanned using the most environmentally friendly and technically advanced tanning agents. This means our sheepskins for baby are being produced free of health harming chemicals that are still used in many other sheepskin rugs today. Natural coloring is also left intact so expect slight variations and a deeper yellow tone which is brought out by the tanning process.
How does a sheepskin work to keep baby cool and comfortable?
The Sheepskin surface applys soft pressure evenly under the body, minimizing friction and pressure points common with conventional bedding. The natural wool fibers allow air to circulate freely. This creates an insulating effect that provides warm comfort for baby. Unlike synthetic fiber, the natural wool fibers will return to their original position, even after being folded, or heavily weighed upon. They also do not shed, but may have a few fibers left over from trimming when new.
The Safety of our Sheepskin Rugs
We take great pride in sourcing the best products possible for parents in Canada. Rest assured, your new sheepskin rug is free of all the below mentioned chemicals:
- (1) Pesticides (PCP/TeCP) (Pentachlorophenols, Tetrachlorophenols)
- (2) Organic Tin compounds
- (3) Azo Dyestuffs
- (4) Extractable Heavy Metals (Chrome VI, Antimony, Arsenic, Lead, Cadmium, Cobalt, Copper, Nickel, Mercury)
As well, the wool on our lambskins are bleached during processing with only hydrogen peroxide -- no chlorinated chemicals are used at any stage of the tanning process. The family business behind our sheepskin rug products have been at the forefront of making sure that no heavy metals are used in the tanning process, and they have maintained these standards diligently for over 25 years. You won't be disappointed!
