Wool – a natural choice

100% biodegradable

Natural sheepskin is a durable, long lasting material that, luckily for us and our planet, is 100 % biodegradable. Products made from natural sheepskin have a long and luscious life span. If the day comes when they are past their useful life, they will biodegrade naturally, returning to the land from which they came.

Stain resistant

The waxy outer coating of wool fibre helps to repel liquids. This means if you accidentally spill anything on your sheepskin, it is likely to simply roll off. Any residue left behind can be easily wiped away. Natural sheepskin products do not require regular washing, unlike synthetic fibres.

Natural insulator

In contrast to synthetics, wool is an active fibre with a complex structure that reacts to changes in body temperature and changes in the atmosphere, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

Non allergenic

There is a thin waxy coating on every wool fibre. This is called lanolin. Naturally occurring, lanolin contains fatty acids that repel water, dust and dirt. This in turn inhibits the growth of allergy inducing bacteria, mould, mildew and dust mites.

Durable and elastic

Wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still has the power to recover and return to its natural shape. This means your natural sheepskin product will retain its original appearance for longer.

Odour suppressor

Odour molecules are absorbed into the wool fibre, effectively becoming trapped and less readily detected by the human nose.

Flame resistant

Wool is naturally flame resistant and offers a greater level of fire safety than other fibres. Wool’s inherent fire resistance comes from its naturally high nitrogen and water content, requiring higher levels of oxygen in the surrounding environment in order to burn.

Grown in New Zealand

Time and time again New Zealand sheepskins are regarded as the finest produced anywhere in the world. New Zealand takes great pride in its natural landscape, and in nurturing and growing healthy, well cared for sheep using environmentally sustainable practices.
