This really is the Full Monty of numnah’s, fully lined with a full rolled edge of 100% natural Australian Merino lambswool. These numnah’s are thicker (22mm) under the seat area and lighter in the lower panels (18mm). The lambswool is much denser & softer than the older sheep wool used in many rival numnah’s. The new clear spine is swept up at the wither relieving pressure on the spine and allowing air flow. There is also a strengthened 'Signature' girth protection area with double adjustable Velcro straps for ease of saddle fitting.
Old horsemen used to say: There's 'nothing better for a horses back than natural wool' it promotes blood circulation - is fully breathable, maintaining optimum temperature in summer and winter - regulates humidity controlling the breeding of bacteria and skin irritations and prevents bruising, scarring, chaffing and pressure sores.
If washed carefully on a wool cycle (max 30 degrees), or by hand, with preferably WoolSkin Wash (available from Horse Health) or non-biological powder or liquid these lambskin pads will give long service. We recommend that if WoolSkin is not available, a human hair conditioner (one for dry hair is best) is rubbed over the underside of the wool prior to placing in the machine. Always air dry or tumble on a cool setting. NEVER dry or place directly on or near a heat source.

We recommend that some HUMAN HAIR CONDITIONER (ideally for dry hair) is rubbed over the underside of the lambswool prior to placing in the machine, but not if using WoolSkin. Always air dry or tumble on a cool setting. NEVER dry or place directly on a heat source.
NOTE: allow numnahs to dry out prior to washing and brush off any dried on sweat & dirt. This has always been the best way to manage lambswool on a daily basis. Washing is never as effective when the wool issaturated and the wool can become damaged.
Warning: In rare cases dye from black wool items may leach from wool items giving a slight blue tint. Staining of grey coats can occur.
