Oh, and "temperature," "regulation."
|Our recently reconditioned sheep fleece, with a dollar for scale.|
But after using it with our son for months and months, with the inevitable leaky diapers, and not having it smell like a never cleaned gerbil infested nest, I was amazed. No wonder they've been used for thousands of years. Lanolin helps neutralize urine. Sheepskin regulated temperature in the cold and hot, and keeps it's insulating power when wet. And a recent study also found sleeping on animal skins can reduce asthma.
So, we just sent it away to be reconditioned, for $5.00, believe it or not! The shipping was 4 times that. and, its like new.
We also broke out the co-sleeper I built to get ready for the baby, but that's another post.
