Home > Why Merino Wool


Merino Wool
is one of nature's softest, warmest, and toughest natural fibres.
While most sheep graze in pastures and lowlands, Merino sheep live in the mountains of Southern New Zealand where their fleece must adapt to drastic seasonal changes. Merino fleece wool is layered and made for extremes; it is very breathable and light in the summer, and insulating through the winter. All while being exceptionally soft and lightweight. Wool is also an environmentally and ethically responsible fibre. Natural production is completely sustainable and wool is naturally biodegradable.

Why Sheepskin & Wool?

Sheepskin products offer a wide range of advantages over similar commodities made from other materials. The secret lies in the breathability and layering of wool which helps to make you w
arm in the winter while remaining cool in summer months.
The warmth concept is easy to comprehend; the “cool is summer” slogan still puzzles many people today. Merino wool is a very breathable spring coil fibre which allows for a cool dry comfort. It is also very absorbent which allows for cool and dry comfort summer long on a mattress cover, decor rug, baby lambskin, or medical rug.
Full covering shearling (wool still attached to the leather) provides even more warmth and insulation; however, it is very breathable and able to absorb over 30% its own weight in moisture before ever feeling damp. This means that while all of our slippers, hats, gloves, and mitts are toasty and warm, you rarely sweat while wearing the products.
