LAMBSKIN – short & dens wool - Belgium

Origin : Belgium  - LOCAL, ETHICAL & FAIR

This is the lambskin MATTRESS TOPPER par excellence! A more ‘technical skin’ that is cut shorter so that it offers optimal support and excellent distribution of the pressure points of the body.  

It also has excellent insulating and body temperature regulating characteristics: it keeps you warm in winter and in summer it absorbs perspiration. Gone is the damp sensation in the bed. Wool can absorb about 30% of its own weight in water without leaving a damp sensation. It then slowly evacuates this humidity. This natural regulation prevents the ‘thermal shock’ or the ‘sudden chill’ caused by perspiration cooling down on the skin.

Each piece is unique. The shape, thickness and colour can vary slightly. Unlike other skins, the colour of these skins is more uniform:

-        Off-white/white for skins tanned using the TARA procedure

-        Off-white/golden for skins tanned using the REGULAN procedure

Ideal for use on beds, cribs, in your baby’s pushchair and as a support in a recliner, on the office chair, the car seat and to improve the comfort of bedridden people

Length: between 90 and 100 cms.


Available in two different types of tanning procedures:


TARA tanning (natural colour) : this tanning procedure uses natural extracts without the addition of chrome or other toxic substances. A tanning procedure that only uses products from the Tara tree that grows in Peru and Brazil. This procedure retains the natural colours of your lambskin.


RELUGAN tanning (medical, golden shade, washable) : The Relugan Tanning Procedure is an environmentally friendly procedure and involves no addition of chrome or other toxic substances. Lambskins tanned using this procedure take on a beautiful golden hue. It is also called ‘medical tanning’ as it renders your lambskin washable (in the event of an accident) at 30°C either by hand or in a machine on a wool programme using a special wool detergent.

All you need to do for all types of sheepskins tanned using the TARA and RELUGAN procedures is to air them well. It is also important to brush them regularly with a special brush to remove any impurities that build up in them and to restore their original softness and suppleness. Use a damp cloth to remove any dirty marks.

 In the event of an accident you can wash RELUGAN treated lambskins at 30°C either by hand or in a machine on a wool programme and with a special wool detergent.

·         Leave your lambskin to dry somewhere out of direct sunlight and away from any heat source by rolling it inside out.

·         Your lambskin may seem stiff after drying. To restore the suppleness just rub two parts of the lambskin together for a little while.

·         You may also get the impression that the lambskin has shrunk a bit, but that is just an illusion, after you have ‘worked’ it a bit, it will return to its original size.
