Sheepskin for Babies

Babies and sheepskins go hand in hand.

Whether it be one of our baby sheepskin rugs aka ‘sheepie’ or a beautiful Bickie Bear as a comforter, sheepskin has many beneficial qualities. Sheepskin is a natural material is that soft, snuggly and soothing. It’s also hypoallergenic and breathable, so it’s perfect for our little precious people. Sheepskin is naturally soothing for babies, making them feel soothed and secure.

The best qualities of giving your baby a sheepskin from birth include:

  • Sheepskin has soothing properties – a distinguishing feature of sheepskin is its crimped fibres, which act like a natural body cushion which make it ideal for newborn babies and toddlers.
  • Temperature – Sheepskin can keep baby warm in winter and cool in summer.  That is especially important for newborns because they can’t regulate their body temperature as effectively as kids and adults do. Keeping them warm, but not too warm, wool helps them stay comfortable for longer periods of time.
  • Humidity – Wool contains a high concentration of lanolin. Its strands allow air to circulate through them, creating pockets that keep your baby’s skin dry.
  • Hypoallergenic- The sheepskin’s 100% protein fibres produce a hostile environment for the growth of microorganisms. Lanolin, which is found in sheepskin can help babies with eczema and other skin conditions. Dust mites are the main reason for asthma and different kinds of allergies in kids and adults, studies show. Being resistant to dust mites, wool makes the perfect material for baby bedding and kids’ bedding. It’s absolutely suitable for newborns.
  • Wool is antibacterial, mold and mildew resistant – Due to its breathability and moisture-wicking qualities, wool doesn’t create a breeding ground for bacteria as well. Its natural water-wicking property prevents moisture from being kept in the fabric, and thus naturally keeps healthy humidity levels preventing mold and mildew. That is just another great quality that makes wool the perfect material for babies’ bedding.
  • Flame retardant – Wool is naturally flame resistant and that makes it the most natural alternative of all the toxic fire-retardant chemicals. Unlike nylon and polyester, wool does not flame or melt.

Sheepskin is an all-natural bedding that will let your babies thrive through better sleep and a healthier environment.
