Our Material

Sheepskin has been used to take care of man as long as man has been on earth. That may sound like an adventurous statement, but it’s not at all unfounded. Wherever sheep have been raised, they’ve helped us survive. Records show that sheep and sheepskin has been with us for thousands of years.

It not only keeps us warm in winter, it also cools us in warmer times.

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.

Sheepskin footwear – be they boots or shoes – are just plain comfortable, especially barefoot.  A sheepskin boot will keep your bare feet warm all the way down into the minus degrees in temperature.

Your feet will think it’s warm outside when you put them in a sheepskin boot in the coldest climates, but they were popularized in the US on California beaches.

Sheepskin is a natural moisturizer due to the high content of lanolin in the wool. The lanolin also naturally kills bacteria, dust-mites, etc.

A sheepskin pelt used as a chair covering or a surface to lie on has been shown to be beneficial to those with diabetes, circulatory problems or feet swelling.

So, nature made the perfect shoe material.  Walking in a sheepskin boot or shoe is like walking on a cloud, be it winter, spring summer or fall.
