Recently inspired by Scandi trends, a sheepskin is really a timeless and classic home accessory.
Amazingly versatile and now available as real or faux versions, they really do bring a touch of cosiness to you room. Whether you throw one over your sofa or soften up a wooden dining bench, they can make a huge difference to both the look and comfort of your furniture or room. Our range of authentic and faux sheepskins also come in a gorgeous range of colours, from classic off-white to baby pink!
Sheepskins are the perfect bedroom accessory, and there is nothing better than starting your day by getting out of bed and sinking your toes into one. They also make a great addition to a child’s bedroom or nursery as they provide the perfect comfort for your little ones when sitting or playing on the floor. They also double as the ideal bathroom mat, as the leather prevents slipping, and the wool is brilliant at absorbing moisture. Just make sure you air them regularly and lift them off wet floors to dry.
We love spoiling our four-legged friends and their very own sheepskin rug is the ultimate in luxury pet bedding. Wool naturally adjusts to temperature and is hypoallergenic so great for pets who need a warm, soft, and natural bed. Darker sheepskins are more practical, and our machine washable versions means you can keep them clean and fresh too.
Looking after your sheepskin is so easy, just brush it when necessary, with a sheepskin brush, remove spot stains or hand-wash with a diluted wool detergent and for those that cannot be machine washed, a visit to the dry cleaner will bring them up like new.
A faux sheepskin like our Auckland is made using authentic-looking man-made fibres and is very uniform in shade and feel, however, every natural sheepskin is totally unique, so choosing the perfect one is often better when you can actually see and feel the wool quality and length – so worth a trip to see us in store!
