Sheepskin baby rugs have been enjoyed by babies from around the world, the warmth and comfort of the fleece feels wonderful against the skin. The versatility and special properties of Sheepskin were revealed by a woman in New Zealand, when her child was recovering from illness. Mothers have wrapped their babies in wool to keep them warm and dry, for centuries. The use of lambskin as bedding, pram or floor mat is the modern equivalent. Thermal Control Sheepskin Baby rugs are used throughout the year. Wool is a natural insulator and will trap warm air keeping temperatures stable and baby warm. The natural properties of wool have been recognised for centuries. As a natural fibre it absorbs moisture, which, when released, keeps baby cooler and more comfortable. Using sheepskin can avoid unnecessary clothing, frequently a contributing cause to irritability and discomfort.
We hand finish each rug here in our Somerset Workshop for each order. We are now offering this baby sheepskin rugs as a double alongside the standard single. They are stitched here in our workshop and perfect for a little ones cot bed. Available to order now.

Washing instructions can be found halfway down this page: https://www.sheepskin.co.uk/size-fitting-and-care/
As general guidance we recommend using a muslin under your baby (particularly under their head) to catch any dribble – or leaking nappies, this will help prevent any unnecessary washing.
