Naturally thermostatic, sheepskin won’t only keep your baby cosy in winter but will also keep them cool in summer. In the winter and cooler months, the sheepskin provides warmth as the fibres capture and retain heat created by the body. On warmer days, the wool allows a flow of air next to the body and absorbs moisture keeping your child feeling cool and comfortable.
Kind on sensitive skin, sheepskin has naturally occuring lanolin in the fleece which is a natural moisturiser, so helps sooth and comfort baby's skin. Our shorn hair lambskins from all our suppliers are medically tanned and all our long hair rugs are eco-tanned, meaning they are free from any harmful chemicals to keep baby safe.
Sheepskin is naturally self cleaning, lanolin is packed with self-cleaning properties if left to hang in the air. This makes it a natural dirt repellent and has anti-bacterial properties, reducing the need for harsh chemical cleaning products.
Helping baby sleep, offering extra comfort and support due to its breathable qualities and gentle textures. Dense wool fibres ensure that lambskins absorb pressure without flattening, and many parents have found that their babies manage to get more rest as a result!
Anti-bacterial qualities of sheepskin reduce instances of germs and illness and resist soiling, but further research in Germany has indicated that the microbes found in lambskin can also boost the immune system and reduce chances of developing asthma later in life.
As well as the first-class quality of the products, the ecological awareness is an important issue for Heitmann Felle. Therefore the compatibility of their products and their manufacturing process is tested by independent test institutes. Periodical inspections by the inhouse quality control enable a constantly high product level.
All Heitmann Felle sheepskin hold OEKO-TEX 100 certification, for their level of quality control, and baby safe assurance.
With regular care, real sheepskin lasts a lifetime, but when it come time to finally throw it out, sheepskin breaks down within a year and will give back to the earth all the nutrients kept inside the skin and fur.
Fake sheepskin however can take over 40 years to breakdown in nature and will in fact pollute the ground with micro-plastics and other toxic compounds. Always buy genuine sheepskin!

Our Baby safe sheepskin are eco-tanned, always chrome free and any dyes used are vegetable dyes. Medically tanned sheepskin is also a phrase that is frequently used and means that the fleece is not only baby safe but also has some additional qualities.
Medically tanned sheepskin is always shorn in length (usually 25mm- 30mm) which is the optimum level for support and even weight distribution. The fleeces are dense and undergo additional quality control whilst the leather is soft and pliable. Our shorn hair lambskins from all our suppliers are medically tanned and all our long hair rugs are eco-tanned.
