How to Clean Persian Lamb

by Sarah Coennen ; Updated September 28, 2017

Persian lamb refers to a type of fur that was popular in fashion clothing during the 19th century until the 1970s. It comes from lambs in the Middle East and is a valuable fur. Precision is needed when cleaning clothing containing this fur. Many people do not like wearing this fur because it requires the abortion of a Persian lamb at almost full term to acquire this fur. Many times these furs are passed down from generation to generation as heirlooms and inheritances.

Items you will need

  • Stain remover such as Shout! or OxyClean
  • Clean wash cloth
  • Dry cleaning at home kit such as DRYEL
Step 1

Spray a light amount of stain remover directly onto stains on the fur or the wash cloth as per bottle instructions.

Step 2

Rub with the clean cloth until the stains are removed.

Step 3

Place in the dry cleaning bag and place in the dryer.

Step 4

Run the dryer according to package instructions.


  • The best option for Persian Lamb is to be dry cleaned by a professional.


  • Do not put Persian Lamb in the washer. This will cause damage to the material and possibly render it unusable. Do not put Persian Lamb into the dryer unprotected. Doing so will scorch the fur and possibly destroy the material.
