Shabrak Island, 100% wool
Schabrak/ shalock for Icelandic horse, 100% wool
A specially designed and comfortable saddle pad with fantastic features for you who ride Icelandic horses. The design and quality attract the eye and make your horse shine a little extra, quite naturally. We've used high-quality European wool fabrics for this chambray to give the right feel for both of you, whether you're out in nature or on the track. The mix of materials allows the saddle to mold to the horse and helps keep the saddle in place. The reinforcement fabric at the saddle girth is sewn to avoid chafing and irritation. Thanks to the wool's properties, the saddle pad functions as both heat-regulating and moisture-absorbing, with a really nice feeling against the horse's back during the entire riding session. It also keeps the back muscles naturally warm on cold days, and when you walk off the horse, etc.
Through its natural heat-regulating function, the scraper can be used in all seasons. Please read more about all the good properties of wool:

Washing: Hand wash max 30°C, Machine wash in hand wash/wool program max 30°C and max 600 rpm in centrifugation. Stretch and shape the fabric after washing to preserve original shape. Do NOT tumble dry. Can shrink approx. 3-4% in washing.
Ironing: The product can withstand being pressed/ironed and then also gets a nicer surface. DO NOT iron directly on the fabric, but always place a moistened cotton/linen cloth between the product and the iron.
The wool fibers in the padding consist of different types of structure and can creep up through the outer fabric after a while. We have tried to find material choices that reduce the risk, but with natural materials it cannot be completely avoided. However, the function is not affected, only the appearance. Carefully cut off the fibers that stick out and the product will look less "shaggy".
The color can be experienced differently in real life compared to the web depending on the color settings on the computer. Most color variants stand up well in sunlight, but some fading may occur (mainly on darker colours).
The product should primarily be reused or repaired. It is the most climate-smart. Turn it into, for example, leg pads, seat mats, dog blankets, potholders... The product can also be recycled as a woolen textile and recreated into new woolen products because it is free from mixing. The product is biodegradable.
