Dog Day Mattress in Herdwick Sheepskin
A beautiful, unique, lightweight, comfortable dog day mattress in natural Herdwick Sheepskin. Each mattress has a cotton backing and central zip encompassing a natural latex cushion inner to provide additional support and comfort. Your dog will also benefit from wool's inherent breath-ability and anti-microbial properties, which help regulate body temperature and creates an environment that prevents mould, mildew, and ultimately odours.
This day bed celebrates the unique beauty of Herdwick sheep, a native breed to the central and western Lake District, who live on the highest of England’s mountains. A breed famously safeguarded by Beatrix Potter, they are regarded for their beautiful white, grey, brown fleece colouring's. An extremely hardy breed, the wool is very thick, fairly coarse and lends itself perfectly as a luxurious doggy day mattress.
As a natural product, each Herdwick fleece is unique, there will be a variation in colour and texture with individual natural markings. Some light shedding may occur with this product.
Regular brushing, vacuuming and shaking helps restore the pile and keep your sheepskin product free from dust. The hide side can be easily damage by incorrect washing, simply use a small amount of cold water and wool-wash as per the details below. Lightly sponge over the wool side only focusing on rubbing through the wool and not the skin underneath. Dry naturally and brush to restore pile.
- Only use a small amount of an approved Neutral or Mild Sheepskin Wash. If unavailable, then just use water.
- Do not use any Bleach or Enzyme Washing Products.
- Only use cold water.
- Avoid Direct Heat when drying, dry outside in the shade or inside away from heaters, radiators or fires. Using a clothes rack to lay the sheepskin flat is a good way to dry a skin. Gently reshape as it's drying.
- Do not let the sheepskin dry out too fast, it is best to leave a small amount of moisture in the skin.
