Long & Short Wool
All rights reserved 2010-17 ridersinfo.net
Our sheepskins are manufactured in the USA and are all natural, using the best Australian Merino
sheepskin! I have partnered with the best in the industry,to make this possible for our readers!
If you have read our stories to Sturgis, or our article about "What to pack for Sturgis" and "Traveling on
your motorcycle" then you already know that I recommend a sheepskin cover for any motorcycle trip! The
benefits of riding with a sheepskin cover on your motorcycle are undeniable, AND it also doubles as a pillow
when stopping for the night!
Sheepskin seat covers keep you cool during the summer and warm in wintertime, because of the breathing
properties of wool's hollow fibers. They are always comfortable because they are extremely soft, and they
provide a comfortable cushion of air that acts as a temperature insulator. With sheepskin seat covers, you
will not have to worry about getting into a "hot seat". During cold winter months, sheepskin seat covers are
perfect for giving you that extra added comfort and warmth.
The natural lanolin in sheepskin will actually improve the durability of leather seats over time, making
sheepskin seat covers a great investment.
More Benefits of Sheepskin:
- Sheepskin will not give off an electrical charge. Synthetic seat covers are a 100% insulator of electrical
energy. All natural sheepskin is a partial insulator providing you undisturbed release of static electricity
created by the natural friction of your body and the environment.
- Sheepskin is able to absorb sweat immediately and can submit it in to the air seven times faster than
- Sheepskin against the body activates the blood circulation and the immune system supporting the
relaxation and regeneration of the body.
- Sheepskin is gentle on your skin because it contains lanolin, a basic substance similar to that found in
- Sheepskin helps heal sensitive or inflamed skin or rashes.
- Sheepskin is dirt and bacteria resistant. It has been known for centuries that the lanolin in natural
sheepskin provides it with a self cleaning quality when the sheepskin is hung in fresh air. This does
not mean that your sheepskin will not get dirty from all the road grime! Trust me, IT DOES!!

Pictures of IKEA sheepskin
Our sheepskin IKEA sheepskin
The IKEA sheepskin was our first sheepskin purchase. We
bought this skin on EBAY for $69.00, It wasn't anything
close to the quality of the sheepskin my Dad used, but Dad
also paid at least $100 more than I did and a couple
hundred dollars just for the sheepskin was not in our budget.
Tom was wanting to replace the IKEA skin after it had
served it's purpose for 1,000's of hard miles. This was no
easy task! He found a sheepskin at a leather store about
150 miles north of our house for $90.00 We didn't know at
that time, but now suspect it is synthetic, after only one road
trip of 1,180 miles the skin looks like a cotton ball, not
I made it my mission to locate a manufacturer of premium
quality sheepskin pelts, at an affordable price, for our use
and to bring to our fellow riders. . I searched high and low
for months. And now, I am very proud to offer our readers
this sheepskin, 100% Natural Merino Wool, and
manufactured in the beautiful Pacific Northwest USA. The
size is not the only difference in the two skins, the
sheepskins at RidersInfo are MUCH more lush and thick than
the IKEA skin, the quality of the wool is superior, there really
is no comparison.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR SHEEPSKIN SEAT COVER
Our sheepskin products have been tanned using the most advanced technology known to man. As a result, simple care is all that is needed to
maintain their beauty and comfort.
Though wool is a springy fiber, after long use it may tend to mat down a bit. To restore the pile to its original state, brush it up with a coarse
brush. The coarser the brush the better. Wire brushes work best and do not harm the fleece.
Wool fleece is a natural fiber and resists soiling, this simplifying cleaning. In most cases spot cleaning in place with warm water and mild soap is
all that is needed.
For Wool Pelts- Removing the pelt occasionally and shaking it out also removes loose dirt and restores the fleece to its original condition.
Remember that your sheepskin pelt is a fine woolen product and must be treated as such. Harsh washing and / or drying can cause permanent
damage, therefore dry cleaning is recommended. If the wool pelt is soiled, it may be washed without damage providing that proper instructions are
1.Hand wash in cool to luke warm water, using a mild soap designed for sheepskin.
2.Rinse thoroughly with cool water and gently remove the excess water.
3.Dry naturally without using direct heat. Stretch the skin during drying to prevent shrinkage.
4.When dry, brush up fleece with a coarse pet brush to restore.
5.Brush and vacuum at least once a month.
Please note if you are not comfortable cleaning the sheepskin pelt yourself, find a dry cleaner that specializes in cleaning leather.
The natural form sheepskin is not neatly trimmed and shaped like the long wool and the standard
motorcycle sheepskin. This skin has NO straps and may arrive with a canvas backing attached to
the leather side that you will remove before using. It is truly in it's natural form and happens to be
my favorite and the one I own for my bike. Would be beautiful on your floor as well as cool as hell
on your motorcycle. Has a real "old school" look.
It is approximately 45" inches long and 35" wide. Back side (passenger area) is approximately 29"
and front (driver's seat nose) is approximately 26". Ample coverage for both driver and passenger
seats. Perfect for two up seats. Sizes will vary slightly. This will cover the passenger and driver
seat of large touring bikes. For smaller motorcycle seats you are able to trim the pelt. This pelt will
easily make two seat covers for smaller motorcycle seats. Always trim from the leather side.
Driver back rest are not a problem. Place the skin on your seat, find the slot that your backrest fits
into. Cut a small slit in the current location (from the skin side) and your backrest will slide thru
without problem. The cut into the pelt is not noticeable when the skin in off the bike
