Light Large Sanda Long-haired Classic Sheepskin
Detail: Shepherd Sanda is a classic long-haired Gotland sheepskin. Each sheepskin is completly unique and therefore there can be variations in hue, appearence. The back of the sheepskin is natural, un-coloured leather.
Washing: In case of lighter soiling: Vacuum, use a clothes rollar or hand dry after using a sponge and lukewarm water. Shake and air sheep/lambskins regularly for the best luster and shape, and it is better to do this on a day there is damp in the air. Do not subject the sheepskin to high temperatures or direct sunlight.
In the case of coarser soiling: Skins with a wool length of up to 35mm can be washed in the washing machine. Skins with full length wool should not be washed in the washing machine. Use a mild detergent (wool shampoo) with a ph-value of 3.5 - 5.5, which is free from ensymes, phosphates, peroxides, aliklies and bleaches. Coarser soiling on the skins should be soaked in cold water before washing. Wash in the washing machine and chose the wool program/30 degrees. Always use a lot of water. It is okay to use spin but avoid using the tumble dryer and absolutly no tumble drying with heat. Do not use bleach or conditioner. Sheep/lambskins should be hung up or dried flat in room temperature. Work, (drag and rub) the skin whilst still damp to keep the skin flexable. Do not iron. Sheepskins can even be dry cleaned by a specialist. Do not subject the sheepskin to high temperatures or direct sunlight.
Brand: "Since starting the business in 1982, our experience has enabled us to establish and maintain a consistently high standard across all of our products. Every step of the process – selecting the best skins, preparing them, and finally sewing them in our own workshop guarantees the highest quality.
We take responsibility for the entire process, from the preparation of the raw skin to the finished product. We buy our sheep and lamb skins from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, England, Sweden, Norway and Iceland.
The leather we use is a by-product of the meat industry. We select skins for our production based on key criteria including wool density, wool structure and leather quality.
Animal welfare is as important to us as the quality of approved Shepherd product. We, therefore, place high demands on all our partners, in order to ensure that animal wellfare is paramount. This includes making random checks and visits to all of our suppliers.
We require our suppliers to maintain and follow our “Shepherd Code Of Animal Treatment”:
– The sheep shall always have good access to food and water. They shall be kept in an environment that is natural for them. They shall have constant supervision and be otherwise cared for so that the animals’ health is promoted and unnecessary suffering is avoided.
-We do not allow any breeder to make use of mulesing.
-We do not permit animals to be transportes by boat.
When you buy a Shepherd product, you know it has been created with care.
To make sure that all our customers can be proud of our products, we have high demands and think conscious in all our "actions. We also have high demands on animal welfare and code of conduct
