How to measure a Sheepskin Hide and get a quote for cleaning.
The first thing you will need to do is measure your sheepskin so we can give you an estimate, for the clean, all our pricing is done prior to the clean and we make sure you understand our pricing and procedures before we go ahead, there are no surprises with us just a good thorough professional clean with clear and honest pricing.
Measuring a sheepskin is usually done by the amount of hides that make up the rug, from a single hide to even 20 hides making up a very large sheepskin rug, it’s easy to do, just turn the sheepskin over and count the sections, these sections are usually (roughly) 2 foot (60 cm) by 1 foot (30cm) in area size but do vary depending on the size of the sheep, if you see lots of small sections you probably have a patchwork style sheepskin, these are usually made from off cuts all sewn together and therefore these have to be measured by length and width, they are also usually rectangular or if circular in shape measure by the diameter. Some can have backings on them to cover up the joining of each fleece, these also have to be measured for pricing.
We like to thoroughly inspect the fleece before we go ahead with any cleaning, some of the inspection is done while you are present in our unit or when it arrives with us if you have used a courier service. We will advise if we think there are any problems, we will be able to advise you of your options whether this may be either a lighter clean or even just a thorough dry clean only where we air dust, vacuum and brush the fur using our specialist equipment.

Sheepskin rugs can be a luxury rug to have in the home, but you may find the wool fur becomes matted over time and is holding a large amount of debris, it’s also likely to be to big to wash yourself.
