    Default New sheepskin - want to remove lanolin & scent, soften coarse wool side


    I have 2 brand new sheepskin rugs still fresh with lanolin and it's scent. The online farm shop I bought them from says they're naturally softened with animal fats, but they both feel coarse to the touch. Rug 1: is a 5" plush ivory Icelandic. Rug 2: is a fine-haired rose-beige Icelandic; while it looks silky it is not very soft. I do not want to condition or rejuvenate the suede skin as it's still brand new and in great skin health. I want to start the cleaning process from vacuuming and dry soil removal.

    My goals are to remove the lanolin and its scent (the oil shine always appears on my hands) and to soften/condition the fur. I was wondering if the below products will do the trick. I read on this forum the acidifier can also help soften the wool and the sanitizer is good as a disinfectant which seems helpful since my cats enjoy rolling over and putting their cuddly butts on these rugs.

    Terry towel
    Protector-S+ (leather scented)

    Images attached. Please note the resolution is so big and I'm having such a hard time resizing them. Please right-click and open in new tab to see the coarse fur texture better.

    Thanks so much,
