How can you use a sheepskin?
Sheepskins come in many different sizes and colors and can be used in many different ways. The most well-known way of using a sheepskin is for in your interior as a mood creator e.g. on the sofa or in the chair. This allows you to sit extra soft and comfortable. But you can also use them as a rug for wonderfully warm feet. Of course you can also use them purely for decoration, for example put a beautiful Icelandic fleece on your table or bench for a warm atmosphere.
In addition to the regular sheepskins, there are also special medicinal sheepskins. These coats are used for people who have to sit in a wheelchair for a long time or who have to lie in bed for a long time. Sitting and lying down for a long time can cause bedsores, also known as decubitus. A medicinal sheepskin can provide relief. These coats have short shorn wool and a good wool density. This distributes the pressure evenly when you sit or lie down, which can alleviate and prevent pressure sores.
Do you have a dog or cat? Then you can also put a sheepskin on the couch so it doesn't get damaged. Or use the fleece as a comfortable bed where they can lie on. A sheepskin absorbs the body temperature and stays cool on the warmer days and warm on the cooler days.
Can you use a sheepskin for outdoor use? Yes, to a certain extent. When the weather is nice and not humid you can put a sheepskin outside in your lougeset for that wonderful relaxing moment. If it is humid or raining, we recommend that you put the sheepskin in its stable. It is also best to bring the sheepskin inside in the evening. Leather is not very resistant to moisture.
What kinds of sheepskins are there?
Sheepskins come in an awful lot of different and unique colors and sizes. Did you know that there are over 900 different sheep breeds? Each sheepskin is a truly unique natural product and each breed has its own typical characteristics. For example, the Icelandic sheepskins are known for their beautiful long hairs. And the typical Dutch Texel flee ce for its firm and fine wool. Or the Gotland fleeces for their recognizable gray natural curly coats.

A unique tanning process that gives our sheepskins a silky soft feel and a pleasant smell.
The coats are super supple and have a wonderfully soft texture. This is due to the special unique tanning process used by the tannery. To achieve this high quality, the sheepskins are brushed several times, making them extra soft and giving them an amazing shine. Besides the great look that the sheepskins bring, one of the most pleasant aspects is the silky soft feel.
Another feature of our premium sheepskins is the pleasant smell. We noticed that many sheepskins on the market have a very pungent sheep / farm smell. This is characteristic of cheap sheepskins that have only gone through a limited tanning process. If you put such a cheap sheepskin in the house, the whole house will smell of sheep in no time, not really desirable. After all, you want to be able to enjoy the sheepskin right away, don't you?
Leatheroverstock.Com, in collaboration with its tannery, has been looking at how we can make the sheepskins smell nice. After some adjustments in the tanning process, our sheepskins smell nice and have a pleasant aroma, and we are quite proud of that. The smell can be compared to soap, so you can immediately give them a nice spot in your home and enjoy their beauty.
