For Regular Maintenance: The most important thing to know about sheepskin is that it hates to stay wet. If you ride the sheepskin against the horse or get it thoroughly soaked make sure it is dried quickly. Place the pad sheepskin up in a cool environment. In humid climates use a fan to blow over the pad. Sheepskin must be allowed to dry fully between rides. Once the pad is dry, a light brushing of the sheepskin with a pet brush will separate the wool fibers and help keep the wool fluffy and resilient for the next ride. Store sheepskin side up in your tack room, brush occasionally. A simple daily/post-ride brushing is all your pad needs if not too sweaty from the ride.
Washing Sheepskin: Pads should only be washed when absolutely necessary, which should only be about 2-3 times in its lifespan if the above maintenance care is followed. Sheepskin saddle pads are best washed by hand in cold water using the following products: Eucalan, Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, or Ivory Snow Flakes. ThinLine does not recommend the use of other brands on these sheepskin products. You may machine wash (although hand wash is preferred) in a front loader, no agitators against the pad, single wash cycle only. Remove excess water in the pad by carefully squeezing the water out or placing in your washing machine on the spin cycle. Pad should be laid flat, sheepskin up, out of the sun preferably under a fan. No dryers or other heating devices. The ThinLine portion may slow drying time so placing absorbent products such as heavy duty paper towels or shami’s inside the pocket will absorb water, speeding the drying time and keep your sheepskin in better shape. Don’t over stuff pockets or the sheepskin may stretch. Do not bruch or pull sheepskin when wet.
The ThinLine foam pad itself does not require washing, but if you choose to do so, ThinLine recommends using baby wipes. You can also hose it off or machine wash (front loader only, cold water, no dryer!). IMPORTANT: Keep your ThinLine away from chemicals such as Show Sheen, Paint thinner Oils, and Leather Conditioner.
