Australian Sheepskin - The World's Best!
Sheepskin or shearling fleece continues to be a timeless natural choice. For centuries, Australian sheep farmers have known the virtues of 100% sheepskin. The Australian geography and environmental conditions are uniquely suited to the rearing of the world's best quality Merino sheep, used in the production of our boots. Merino sheepskin wool is lightweight, strong and supple with an incredibly soft feel. Sheepskin is fur, leather skin on one side with wool fur on the other. Sheepskin is not a layer of wool or synthetic material, glued to pig or cowhide as many lesser quality companies offer up as genuine sheepskin.
The Wonders of Sheepskin
Ounce for ounce, sheepskin is stronger than steel. Your sheepskin boots will last for years, with minimum care. Impossible to copy synthetically, sheepskin and it's wool fibers offer an astounding list of natural qualities. Sheepskin wool does not shed, because it's attached to the skin. It's not woven and then brushed up, like wool pile fabric that's loose enough to be pulled out or worn off. Sheepskin wool is embedded into the leather.
Warm in the winter and cool in summer
Sheepskin wool is soft, resilient and is naturally thermostatic. The fibers "breathe" to act just like a natural thermostat for your body. These fibers are hollow and can absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture without feeling wet. This quality allows for the absorbing of moisture away from your feet to the outside air keeping your feet perfectly dry, regardless of the weather. In winter sheepskin is a natural insulator trapping airspaces between the fibers capturing your body heat. The free flow of air between you and the sheepskin fibers is a comforting change to the clamminess of lamented pigskin, cowhide and synthetic fleece materials found in cheap boots often mistakenly marketed as "Sheepskin Boots". Additionally, sheepskin contains lanolin, which will moisturize your feet for additional comfort.
Sheepskin is washable
Our boots can be gently hand washed to maintain their fresh appearance by using a sheepskin shampoo. We have constructed our boots to have our removable fleece covered insole for easier care. These insoles can also be washed to keep their freshness.
Sheepskin is natural
Sheepskin is a natural product derived from nature and is unlike any other fiber in the world.
