Dimensions are measured at longest points (on the fur side). A natural sheepskin rug/throw is a source of comfort, beauty, and good feelings. We support the positive nature of our products with sustainable, humane, and eco-friendly practices. "Eco-friendly" vegetable tanning uses natural tannins rather than chrome tanning.
Natural sheepskin is recognized as hypoallergenic. A lanolin coating protects the wool's soft fibers. Vegetable tanned European Sheepskins have no chemical odor and the wool remains soft and pleasing for years. Know where your leather products come from and how they are made. Cheap and fast to market likely comes with a higher cost to the environment.Wool is considered by the medical profession to be non-allergenic. Sheepskin is a natural insulator, and draws perspiration away from the wearer and into the fibers.
There, it traps between 30 and 36 percent of its own weight in moisture. Shearling sheepskin is great for any season. It keeps you cool during the summer and warm in wintertime, because of the breathing property of the wools hollow fibers.It is always comfortable because it is extremely soft, and it provides a comfortable cushion of air that acts as a temperature insulator. For centuries, sheep farmers and country folk have known that no natural or man-made fiber possesses the virtues of 100% sheepskin. The unique combination of leather skin on one side and wool fur on the other lends it remarkable properties.
Cool in Summer and Warm in the Winter Sheepskin wool is soft and resilient. Its fibers breathe, acting like a natural thermostat for your body. These hollow fibers can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture without feeling wet, keeping you perfectly dry regardless of the weather. Ounce for ounce, sheepskin is stronger than steel. Your sheepskin items will last for years with minimal care: most often, only brushing, shaking out, or vacuuming is required.
Impossible to copy synthetically, sheepskin and its wool fibers offer an astounding list of natural qualities. Wool does not shed, because it's attached to the skin. It isn't woven and then brushed up, like wool pile fabric that is loose enough to be pulled out or worn off. Sheepskin wool is embedded into the leather.
Resists snags, tears, wrinkles, soiling and pilling. Drapes beautifully; never sags and retains shape.Stays warm even when wet. Is a natural moisturizer due to the high content of lanolin in the wool. The seeded skin side is naturally water resistant. Sheepskin is a Recycled Byproduct. A sheepskin pelt is only one of many byproducts of the sheep farming industry.
This byproduct of the food and wool industry is tanned and used in many wonderful ways rather than being discarded. At the end of a sheep's life, nothing is wasted. The whole animal is used, including bones and hooves.Sheepskin, like wood, is one of the few raw materials that nature will never exhaust. Its value as both a food source and a production material is therefore both aesthetic and ecological. Though wool is a springy fiber, after long use it may tend to mat down a bit.
To restore the pile to its original state, brush it up with a coarse brush. The coarser the brush the better. Wire brushes work best and do not harm the fleece. Wool fleece is a natural fiber and resists soiling, this simplifying cleaning. In most cases spot cleaning in place with warm water and mild soap is all that is needed.Your rug will have a fresh clean smell to it. We have 5 suppliers in Poland and Denmark and all 5 finish the eco tanning process by washing them in a mild detergent.
