*From interior products, such as designer rugs, through to more industrial uses such as polishing material for the vehicle and tech industries. Shorn lambskin is also available as ‘twin face’ for manufacturing shearling boots and other footwear.
Shearling is a sheepskin or lambskin pelt that has gone through a limited shearing process to obtain a uniform depth of the wool fibres for a uniform look and feel. The term Shearling refers to the pelt of a yearling sheep that has been shorn, and contrary to the popular misconception, is not a specific reference to shorn wool.
Shearling material produced for garments or footwear is made by tanning the shorn pelts of a yearling sheep and shearing the wool to provide a uniform depth.
