The Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo Wash was developed in conjunction with the tanning industry in Australia specifically for washing and conditioning sheepskin. Many detergents will do a good job with wool, but Shear Comfort Sheepskin Shampoo & Conditioner not only washes and disinfects wool, it also conditions the sheepskin leather keeping it soft and supple after washing.
Shear Comfort Sheepskin Shampoo & Conditioner also contains Tea Tree Oil, a natural fungicide and miticide.
This detergent is specifically formulated to clean, disinfect and condition washable sheepskin. It kills and will remove mite allergens from all natural fibre products; including sheepskin, wool, fur, and feathers- an important consideration for people with dust mite allergies.
Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo does not contain enzymes, phosphates, peroxide, alkali or bleach, which can cause irreversible damage to sheepskin leather and harm the environment. This product is also biodegradable.
It is available to purchase in 250ml, 1 litre and a 5 litre bottle.

Shear Comfort is as easy to care for as your regular clothes.
All Shear Comfort sheepskins have the ability to be washed at 80° C, effectively killing bacteria without shrinkage. Our sheepskins are warrantied against being washed 50 times at this temperature without any detrimental effects to the item. For best use we recommend using Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner.
Shear Comfort products may be tumble-dried warm, without exceeding 60° C. To air-dry Shear Comfort overlays, hang fleece-side down and away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
To air-dry Shear Comfort footwear or targetted protectors, release all fastenings and place fleece-side down on a drying rack and away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

Specific Washing instructions
As our Shear Comfort Original items are backed with natural sheepskin, they require a slightly different washing technique from the XD1900, which is backed with fabric.
Please follow the washing instructions for your chosen item.
Shear Comfort Natural Sheepskin
It is recommended that Shear Comfort natural sheepskin items are washed with the Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner, which contains antibacterial tea tree oil and is effective against dust mites. If an alternative is used, it must be a non-ionic liquid detergent which has no enzymes, phosphates, peroxides, alkali or bleach.
Domestic washing instructions
On a gentle cycle, wash your Shear Comfort product with approximately 20ml of Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. Water must not exceed 80°C.
Industrial Washing instructions
Wash on a gentle cycle wash for approximately 10 minutes in hot water up to 60°C using Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent.
Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in warm water at approximately 35°C
Wash on gentle cycle without detergent for approximately 8 minutes in water up to 80°C for thermal disinfection.

Shear Comfort XD1900
Shear Comfort XD1900 does not require special shampoo, and can be washed with normal household detergent up to a temperature of 80°C, although you can use Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo to condition the wool and utilise the fungicidal and mitricidal properties of the shampoo.
XD1900 products can be laundered in the same way as Shear Comfort Natural sheepskins.
