Reindeer hide is "shedding" bit more than most other hides and it’s absolutely normal. Fibre shedding after first installation to it’s new place is quiet common. After a few weeks you will find that your hide will settle down and hair will stay remain nice and dense as was original.
The reindeer fur has special characteristic it does not shed really it rather brakes.
There are numerous air cells in them hair which makes them perfect to insulate at North Tundra
region but at the same time that makes it fragile - hence they are offered mainly for decoration
purpose instead of use in high traffic area or at busy seat.
They are very environmental sensitive and if get placed where humidity or temperature is out of normal interval or having an intense mechanical impact they might develop shedding (due to the fibre structure mentioned above).
- place near extreme heat like in front of fire, near a radiator or on floors with under floor heating.
- allow pets to become too attached to your pelt, they love to dig out the hairs.
Reindeer hide is not washable at all!
To remove any dust and dirt shake the hide gently once a week outside or use a low setting on your vacuum cleaner and gently vacuum hide from head to feet.
If you care and look after your reindeer hide it will last for many years always looking good, giving you great pleasure and satisfaction.
