How does sheepskin keep baby cool ?

How does sheepskin keep baby cool ?

It sounds a little bit crazy at first but yes sheepskin does actually keep you cool in the warmer weather – in just a few bullet points we can get to grips with the science behind it.

  • Sheepskin draws moisture away from the wearer and into the heart of the fibres
  • Whilst drawing moisture into the fibres, sheepskin is able to maintain a dry surface next to the skin
  • Sheepskin can trap between 30-35% of its own weight in moisture
  • Sheepskin is made up of natural hollow fibres so is breathable, letting air flow through it

So there you have it – how to keep your baby cool in the summer.  The use of sheepskin pram liners, pushchair liners and cot mattress covers to keep baby cool is already a really popular idea across the warmer European countries.  Check out the sheepskin pram liners if you are holidaying in Spain or Italy over the summer.   We send out quite a few of our liners to Dubai over the summer months too !  

We’ll leave you with a  couple of tips for keeping baby super cool on the hottest of days.

  • Try placing a small cool pack behind the sheepskin  (rug, pram liner, mattress   cover) and your little one will be instantly cooled – and super comfortable at   the same time.
  • A sheepskin liner in a car seat will not only regulate body temperature but it will keep the car seat nice and cool on a hot day
