How do I maintain my skin?

It is essential to take good care of your skin to keep it in good condition as long as possible. If in doubt: dry clean your skin!

  • Brush and shake regularly for long hair. For short hair, use the hoover in the direction of the hair at minimum power.
  • Dry cleaning with terre de Sommières (recommended).
  • Wash stains by hand with products suitable for wool (Marseille soap) and rinse with clear water at 30°C max (avoid this whenever possible).
  • Dry flat, away from the sun or any source of heat. Dry naturally.
  • Finish by brushing if necessary (soft brush, boar brush depending on the type of hair).

Never use chemicals or other detergents. You can also find washable sheepskins in the shop!
