If you must wash your bear, please be sure to follow the washing instructions below:
1) Dissolve a small amount of sheepskin detergent* or woolwash (i.e. nonalkaline mild liquid detergent wool wash) in a bucket of cool water (never use hot water) and gently handwash
2) Dry on a flat surface in the sun
You may also consider cold spot washing any marks before washing entirely as above by using a damp cloth to gently rub followed by the same with a dry cloth and then place outside in a sunny spot for drying.
