    The sheepskin seat covers for our DA40 are looking a little skuzzy. These are official Diamond sheepskin covers and are hand made from real sheep!

    I have read about dry cleaning or hand washing in cold water.

    Any experience out there with this?

    Thanks
    Marc

    Take them to a cleaner that does leather, it doesn't cost much and leaves them soft.

    Mark...rent a shampooer when it nice and sunny, August will do!
    Good luck... Mine doesn't have wool, I won't have that problem, I'm at CYBW as well.

    After more research, found a dry cleaner who does sheepskin. It was expensive but the seat covers came back good as new.

    It's often worth it to just pay a pro.;) Still under $50 for the pair right?
