Turn Any Space Into Your Happy Place

Pressure at work... family drama... doomscrolling... not to mention our own existential angst... We all get distracted and diminished by life's craziness.  We need a calm place where we can take a deep breath (or two, or three) and let go.

Textural Healing

Physical contact with a soft texture calms us. A Real Sheepie is ready and waiting to sooth us when we feel anxious and stressed. 
The Soothing Touch

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.

Relieve Aches and Pains

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.

Anti-Microbial Protection

Real Sheepies repel mold, bacteria, and dust mites. The wool fibers have natural wicking properties that prevent moist conditions where microbes thrive. 

Temperature Regulation

Real Sheepies are temperature regulating. They feel warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather, keeping you cozy year-round.

Upcycled For Less Waste

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.
