Unlike faux products, A Real Sheepie's genuine Merino wool fibers contain lanolin, which has similar properties to the oils in human skin. This makes them exceptionally soothing to touch, even for individuals with sensitive skin.
The thick natural fibers of a Real Sheepie are naturally orthopedic. They form a springy, cushioned, support that cradles your body, easing pressure points and relieving muscle aches and pain.
Real Sheepies repel mold, bacteria, and dust mites. The wool fibers have natural wicking properties that prevent moist conditions where microbes thrive.
Real Sheepies are temperature regulating. They feel warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather, keeping you cozy year-round.
Upcycling excess sheepskin hides into Real Sheepies is part of a "nose to tail" approach to sheep farming. To reduce waste, this approach utilizes as much of the animal as possible. These hides would otherwise be burned or discarded in a landfill.
Real Sheepies are therefore made from 100% upcycled Merino sheepskin, which has been salvaged from mature, pasture-raised, sheep. These animals, that we source from farms in New Zealand and Australia, have been cultivated primarily as a food and wool resource that feeds and clothes millions of people around the world.
Say No To Faux
Faux sheepskin is typically made from synthetic polymeric fibers such as acrylic or polyester, which are forms of plastic. These fibers are made from chemicals derived from coal and petroleum. They are non-biodegradable and do not provide the therapeutic benefits of a Real Sheepie.

"Having a Real Sheepie at my bedside and in front of my bathroom vanity has added luxe texture and style to the room. Just looking at their plushness relaxes me. And, they are kind of low maintenance. Shake then out or brush to remove debris and fluff back up."

"I love to read on the couch, snuggled up on top of the Real Sheepie, it feels so luxurious like I am reclining on a cloud or wrapped in a hug. It has made spending time in the living room feel so much more luxurious - I love cozying up with it to read or watch movies, especially after a long day. "

Adding a Real Sheepie on top of our Le Corbusier LC4 Chaise Longue drastically changed its “usage pattern”...The Sheepie turned it into a highly coveted location. It now draws heavy competition in the family to use the lounge every night for work from home, reading, or watching a show together.

"We cover our office chairs with Real Sheepies to keep us cozy while we work. It’s a little bit of relaxing luxury for the workday! I also have one in my closet as a rug. They finish the rooms - softening hard angles, adding texture, and bringing warmth! They are beautiful and easy to care for!"
