The technical bit
Typically, lambswool has problems associated with the skin getting hard and brittle. On LeMieux saddle pads, the lambswool has been removed from its skin and integrated with a unique backing fabric that can expand & contract, whilst retaining its inbuilt strength. The fabric aids wicking & moisture control, each fibre holding up to 30% its weight, keeping the surface of the back cool & dry. Temperature variations are also minimised. The density and consistent depth of the wool means it offers a perfect fit. Its dynamic nature also means it moves and remoulds to the horse's shape without too much bulk - but do follow the care instructions below.
Follow these steps to care for your LeMieux Lambskin Pad:
Remove hair, dirt and dried sweat with a stiff brush
Rub human hair conditioner (ideally for dry hair) generously over lambskin areas
Machine wash at 30°C on a cool or wool cycle, or hand wash
Use a non-biological powder or liquid
Straighten/flatten cotton fabric after washing
Air dry near heat source. Never tumble dry
Avoid using strong fabric conditioners
Your lambskin pad will last for years if washed carefully on a wool cycle (maximum temperature of 30°C), or by hand. Use a non-biological powder or liquid. Pour several capfuls of human hair conditioner over the underside of the lambskin prior to placing in the machine.
Note: always air dry. DO NOT tumble dry or place directly on a heat source.
