Why buy a Babycare sheepskin

Natural Colour Australian Tanned Baby Care rug

Babycare sheepskin is a popular choice for parents looking for a natural, comfortable, safe option for their babies. Here are some reasons why you might consider buying a Babycare sheepskin:

  1. Comfort: Babycare sheepskins are naturally soft and plush, providing a comfortable and cozy surface for your baby to lie on. The dense fibres of the sheepskin help to distribute your baby’s weight evenly, reducing the pressure points on their delicate skin.
  2. Temperature regulation: Sheepskin is naturally insulating, which can help regulate your baby’s body temperature. This is particularly useful in the winter, when the sheepskin can help keep your baby warm, or in the summer when it can help keep them cool.
  3. Breathable: Unlike synthetic materials, sheepskin is breathable, allowing air to circulate to your baby and helping to prevent overheating and sweating.
  4. Hypoallergenic: Sheepskin is naturally hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for babies with sensitive skin or allergies. The lanolin in sheepskin also has natural antibacterial properties, helping to keep your baby’s sleeping environment clean and free from germs.
  5. Easy to clean: Babycare sheepskins are easy to care for: You can spot clean, or they can be machine-washed or hand washed in lukewarm water using woolskin woolwash. They also dry quickly, making them a convenient choice for busy parents.
  6. OZwool Babycare sheepskin is eco-tanned, the most natural tanning process around. All the better for your baby to lay on.
  7. The OZwool OZmade babycare sheepskin is 100% tanned here in Australia with a higher support function than many soft sheepskins on the market.

Overall, a Babycare sheepskin is an excellent investment for parents looking for a comfortable, safe and natural sleeping surface for their baby.

In addition, there is a full range of sheepskin baby products. These are all premium natural sheepskins

Is sheepskin safe for babies?

Can babies sleep on Sheepskin?  Yes, they can. They keep the baby warm and cosy in cold weather. In hot weather, the natural fibres of the wool absorb moisture, which is released into the air, ensuring the baby stays drier and more comfortable.

Sheepskin storage     

Sheepskin should be stored in a cool, airy place away from direct sunlight. Guard against condensation. DO NOT pack in plastic bags for long periods. Lambskinl & Sheepskin is a genuine natural wool and leather product and needs to be cared for the same way we care for leather products.

Sheepskin Washing

Yes, you can easily wash our Lambswool or Sheepskin products.  Hand or machine wash once a month, ideally using Woolskin, Lambskin Shampoo & Woolwash with conditioner. Do not use a commercial woolwash or detergent, as this can damage your sheepskin hide.

You’ve come into the right place for moms looking for available infant care sheepskins and underlays options.

If you are unsure how to select or choose our sheepskin products, please email or call us.

Sheepskins and underlays are used as an interface between the bed’s surface and the infant and are usually sold and used as a single natural shaped skin. They are also manufactured into shapes and for specific purposes like pram liners, stroller liners or cot underlays.

Because of their incredible softness and natural feel on the skin, they are ideal for infant and baby use as it helps them have a great playtime and relaxing sleep.

Sheepskin Infant Playmats - Sheepskin Nursery Rug

At OZwool, we do not sell the smaller sheepskins that others do, as they have limited use. Our smallest is the Large Infant care Sheepskin.

Natural Sheepskin will provide a familiar comfort as its soft wool fibres contain a substance called lanolin, similar to that found on human skin. It will also offer your baby warm during winter days and cool during summer.  And because it is sanitized, it makes sure that your baby’s skin is protected and that no chemicals and dirt are on it that can cause your baby skin irritation.

Suitable for nursery bedding in the baby cot or bassinet or a play mat, pram liner, or floor mat. A popular item for boys is our baby blue sheepskin rug

Sheepskin (and the younger lambskin) is a 100% natural product and is just one of nature’s wonder items. It’s no surprise that humans have been using it in homes and bodies for generations. Neither that there are many wool-based infant products offered to parents nowadays.

Being 100% pure and Natural, Sheepskin is hypoallergenic, flame retardant and anti-bacterial. It even keeps itself tidy! Lanolin (a thin waxy finish on the fibres) wards off water, dirt, and dust and stops the growth of irritants.

Make sure you purchase a high-quality Australian Made Sheepskin for an infant. Search for the Australian Woolmark seal that way, and you’ll understand you are buying Australian farmed Sheepskin without any included nasties. Also, look for the Made in Australia Logo and the Australian Owned Logo. These logos shows that you are purchasing a 100% Australian processed sheepskin from an Australian Owned company.

Is Sheepskin breathable?
Yes, Sheepskin is breathable. This must be one of the best features of a natural product like Sheepskin. It all comes down to the hollow fibres of the wool fibres itself, which allow air to stream easily and control body temperature – keeping you warm in wintertime and cool in summer.

Is it OK for babies to sleep on Sheepskin?
Putting your baby down for naps can be a double bordered sword. There’s the welcome break and rest for yourself and the bother with how long they will undoubtedly sleep and whether they are resting securely. I remember it well!

Infant Sheepskin for Babies

Sheepskin or lambskin makes for an excellent bed linens underlay, offering a soft and comfortable base for sleeping. Pure Sheepskin attracts dampness away from your sleeping child, helping to keep their temperature constant and motivating much longer sleep times.

If you intend to use your sheepskin items in your infant’s cot or crib, you should use brief woollen Sheepskin (not long wool) and cover it with a sheet when your baby is lying down or resting. It’s also vital to revolve your sheepskin underlay routinely.

Always ensure you adhere to the safe sleeping techniques suggested by your neighbourhood childcare scientists. If you have any questions, they should be your first port of phone call.

Can I put Sheepskin in a cradle?

Valuable babies spend a lot of time sleeping. And as brand-new moms and dads, we invest a great deal of time focused on when, how and how long they are resting! Naturally, we desire a healthy, safe and comfy resting environment, so we can place them down for a nap without feeling worried.

Our baby expert advises using a short wool pile Sheepskin (not a long wool pile) as a base layer in a bassinet or cot with a sheet put over the top in Australia. Make sure you brush your sheepskin underlay regularly.

We encourage you to do your very own research and adhere to the safe sleeping practices suggested by your local health and wellness specialists.

What is the best dimension for an infant sheepskin child playmat?
There are some valuable factors to consider when choosing your rug, such as:

The length of the wool pile. The optimum wool pile length is 24-26mm. Anything shorter can be detrimental to the support of the baby.

The diameter of the wool pile. If the Sheepskin is too soft and fine, it will not support a baby enough.

The size of the Sheepskin (do you want to be able to throw it in the car and take it to Grandma’s?).
Generally, sheepskin rugs for children should be between 90am and 100cm, 110cm if you want to use them for a more extended period and throw them on the cot. But some people do like the smaller one, 80 – 85 centimetres in length, as they can be cheaper. Being a natural product, actual dimensions will vary. As your infant ages, they will undoubtedly be able to roll over, creep, and stroll – so keep in mind the lambskin rug you purchase for them now may not fit as their needs alter.

How do you clean up a sheepskin infant rug?

If there’s something we understand concerning looking after a baby, that mess is virtually guaranteed! Understandably, you may be worried regarding just how Sheepskin will hold up in these situations. However, I felt confident it was up to the job.

When the unpreventable occurs, the best thing is instant activity. Try to spot clean the specific area straight away. Do this by initial shaking off any surface area fluid, then delicately blotting whatever is staying with a tidy towel. Don’t splash water or any other liquid directly onto the mark -it will just spread out the tarnish.

Make an effort to take in as much liquid as possible. Typically this alone will be enough. If, however, a stubborn mark remains, then attempt using the Woolskin Woolwash, which is the only woolwash recommended by Sheepskin Tannery. Do not use supermarket wool washes as they are not designed for use on Sheepskin.

Purely talking, sheepskin rugs are machine washable. If you have a large spill or your Sheepskin looks shabby, you may want to throw it in the washing machine with some woolskin woolwash. Follow the woolskin woolwash instructions, stretch the hide, and brush the wool pile when it comes out of the machine.
When drying your sheepskin rug, air drying out is ideal. Don’t place it in the dryer! For best results, hang away from direct sunshine or lay level on a towel in the shade until it is totally dry.

There are numerous benefits to using a sheepskin rug for your newborn – it’s soft, entirely natural, breathable and hypoallergenic for a beginning. And simple to tidy! What could be much more ideal?

All-natural sheepskin products are an excellent investment for your newborn infant. You can also use Pure Natural Sheepskin for floor carpets, car seat covers and pram or stroller liners for babies. Pure sheepskin or lambskin rugs make a soft, clean, comfortable base for baby playtime.
