Mattes makes many products using Merino sheepskins. The wool from a Merino sheep is widely regarded as the best wool available. Most products made by Mattes uses the skin along with the wool. This is different from using just the wool and plugging the wool onto a cotton backing – known as “wool backed”. It is generally accepted that sheepskin, opposed to “wool backed” produces a better, longer lasting product. Mattes sources all its sheepskin from Australia.
Care Instructions: Use wool safe detergent MELP (see other shop listing) only as it contaiins important re-greasing properties which keep the 'skin' supple. Wash on 'wool' cycle in your washing machine and put in dryer on low heat. This will bring the sheepskin back to its cushy best.
