Discover the benefits of sheepskin
You’ll be amazed to learn that sheepskin has so many benefits over its cheaper synthetic competitors.
Good for your well-being
Wool contains lanolin, a natural substance with antibacterial properties that help prevent the growth of bacteria and odour, especially in footwear.
Reduced skin friction
Sheepskin can reduce skin friction making it beneficial for people with mobility challenges, are tactile-defensive or spend extended periods in bed or in wheelchairs.
Most folks find the softness and comfort of sheepskin soothing, which can have positive effects on mental well-being.
Sleep more soundly
Wool has been scientifically proven to help you go to sleep faster and for longer.
Soft & gentle on skin
Wool fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend giving you that soft, gentle, luxurious, comfy feel on your skin.
Wool is resistant to dust mites, mould, and mildew making it the ideal material for folks of any age who suffer from allergies or asthma.
Good for your comfort
Wool absorbs moisture vapour meaning less sweat on your body. It also absorbs the odour molecules from sweat, which are only released upon washing.
Wool fibres absorb large quantities of moisture vapour and then move it away to evaporate into the air.
This means that wool items stretch with you and can still return to their original shape if need be. This ability to mould to a shape provides extra comfort and a better fit.
Because wool has auto thermo-regulating properties, it is considered to be one of the best materials for clothing, footwear, and bedding.
Both warm & cool
Wool is an active fibre that reacts to changes in body temperature- making it perfect to wear year-round! You’ll be warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot.
“No fake, faux, or synthetic sheepskin or wool will ever be used in our range. This is our promise!” – Hazel Hoole
Good for the environment
100% natural & biodegradable
When sheepskin wool is thrown away, it quickly and naturally decomposes releasing valuable nutrients back into the earth.
Items made from sheepskin wool are 300% more likely to be recycled than synthetic clothing.
No microplastic pollution
Unlike synthetic fibre, wool biodegrades naturally and quickly without releasing any pollutants into the ocean, atmosphere, or environment.
Wool takes a long time to ignite. Unlike many common synthetic materials, it will not stick or melt into flesh and skin causing injury and pain.
Good quality sheepskin products can be long-lasting, giving you value for money while reducing waste.
Easy to care for
Easy to clean
Wool can be gently washed in tepid/cold water in a washing machine or by hand wash. Hot water is the enemy.
Wool fibres have a natural protective outer layer that helps prevent stains from being absorbed.
At a microscopic level, each wool fibre is like a coiled spring that returns to its natural shape after being bent, leaving your item wrinkle free!
Not only are items made from sheepskin and wool easy and light to pack, they also do not need to be washed as often as synthetic equivalents or ironed.
Wool naturally offers some protection against the harmful UV radiation, making it a great material for outdoor activities.
Because wool tends not to generate static, it attracts less dust and lint.
