    Sheepskin,,,??

    Hi,,,,

    I am looking for a ''Synthetic Sheepskin'', the sherpa-like kind. I always have it on/across my bed 'n regularly sleep on it. It's about 2'x3'.

    I did an online search 'n only find genuine sheepskin, looks like a bear skin---not what I want.

    Does anyone know of where I may find one,,,,??

    Thanx,,,Freej

    Hey Freej, I'm Pretty sure you can either get synthetic or the real thing at a very reasonable price from IKEA if you have one near you - otherwise, it may be available through their mail order services and/or online ordering.

    free, I buy my top layer of synthetic sheepskin (I sleep on two, the bottom one being a regular sheepskin rug about 3'x6') at a pet store. It goes right in the washing machine to get cleaned. Petco....where the quads go!

    Real medical sheepskins are the way to go. They are treated to withstand HIGH temperature washing, wick moisture, and last a very long time. I have two that I use, one in the wash, one on the bed, and they are 12 years old. They haven't lost any loft and still look like new. Synthetic is hot, doesn't wick moisture and compacts quickly.

    Most of the real medical sheepkins come from either Australia or New Zealand. I am considering replacing the two I have, just haven't done the research.

    All the best,
