What is Shearling?
Shearling is natural sheepskin – one of the first garments to shelter man from the elements. It is the hide of the sheep turned inside out, with the soft lanolin wool against your body and the hide on the outside. This combination of hide and soft wool makes a natural insulator, which provides amazing warmth.
Shearling comes in a variety of textures, thickness and quality. It can be soft or coarse in texture, have long or short hair, be light and airy or thick and dense. Shearling is warm without weight, a naturally luxurious garment that is politically correct, and is an incredibly long-lasting investment. Shearling is an all natural by-product and a renewable resource that promotes a sound agricultural and livestock ecosystem.
How do I store, clean, and care for my shearling?
Our shearling garments are a lifetime guarantee and made to last for years to come, that’s why proper storage is vital in keeping your shearling the best shape.
Always hang your shearling garment on a well-shaped and padded hanger and give it some breathing room when hanging in the closet, it should never be stuffed in with other items.Keep your shearling in a cloth garment bag for an extended period of time, and keep it away from direct sunlight, as it can fade the garment over time.
Shearling can be worn in light snow or a light drizzle, but if you get caught in heavy rain, simply just dry your shearling gently with a towel and allow it to dry at room temperature, away from any heat source. Once dry, use a suede brush on the suede side and a gentle steel comb on the hair side.
While accidents may happen, always take your shearling to a leather or suede specialist for cleaning, not your normal dry cleaner’s.
