Lamb skin washmitt

I have one of these and they are very delicate

Can I spin it in my washing machine to dry it out without it falling apart?

I have also wondered about washing these. If really delicate would it not be better for drying to do it either on a washing line or clothes horse thing. Reason being if using a spin dryer I have seen that two much heat can damage them, especially microfibers etc.

Not talking about washing it in the machine, just a spin cycle in the washing machine to get it drier as it takes days in the house to dry out properly.

Not tumble drying either.

If its just a spin I guess so as there is no heat to shrink or damage the mitt.

Having used a few genuine lambswool washmitts, they take a lot of looking after. I think it was the Yeti's Fist I had that I also bought a comb for. I found all such mitts either moult whilst washing, or the underlying skin would tear.

Have since switched to synthetic and prefer it.

Is yours sheepskin or lambs wool? The hide of the sheep or wool woven into a manmade backing? Skin is more durable. lambs wool can fall out in clumps.

Not sure - the description states, lambskin, lambs wool and sheepskin.

I have mitts from the sheepskin shop and dooka pad which are all made of sheepskin and they are still in great condition after a couple of years.

So I've used my mitt around 10times and I am definitely not a fan

Clumps coming out all over the place and tearing off the skin.

Really not impressed at all
