About our Sheepskin Slippers
Shearling sheepskin slippers that are made with genuine shearling have many benefits that slippers made from other materials and regular sheepskin don't. You may be asking yourself what exactly is shearling and what are the benefits? To keep it simple, shearling is the skin of a sheep or lamb that has been tanned with the wool left on the hide. This means that we are using one solid material; one side sheep's wool, and the other side leather. Competitors tote the benefits of shearling sheepskin but actually use the sheep’s wool and attach it to a secondary leather, like cow. This eliminates many of the amazing benefits that true shearling offers.
Benefits of Shearling Sheepskin Slippers
Shearling sheepskin stays dry and clean
With shearling you get some incredible benefits. Sheepskin can absorb up to 33% of its own weight in moisture without causing a damp feeling. This will help to ensure your feet always remain dry and clean; it will also help to fight bacteria causing odors.
Shearling sheepskin acts as a natural thermostat
It can also help to regulate temperature. It is dense enough to keep your feet warm, but is breathable enough to prevent your feet from overheating.
Shearling sheepskin will conform to feet and distribute weight
Shearling sheepskin contains very durable fibres that act like springs in order to cushion and shape to a person’s foot. A benefit of this type of fibre is that it disperses weight evenly, which can help to increase blood flow and reduce aches and pains in the feet.
Lanolin is antibacterial and great for skin
Lanolin in lambskin is naturally anti-bacterial, which can help to reduce foot odor. Lanolin is also very good for a person’s skin; it can limit itchiness and irritation.
Sheepskin is a good alternative to synthetically made material because it is biodegradable and takes much less energy to make. Sheepskin is also a byproduct of the food industry.

"I bought the liners to give new life to my house slippers. Easily cut them with sewing scissors to fit better at the heel. Took a few days to feel right, but now I love them."

"Thick and luxurious. Breathed new life into an older worn out pair of Acorn shearling slippers. Fit was perfect. Pleasant feeling first thing every morning when I slip my feet into my slippers. I am very happy with my decision to buy these inserts."

"The quality was fine. Our problem was they were way too small even after contacting the company about sizing. The problem was, I purchased them early for a gift and by the time the gift was opened it was way past the return date! I would suggest buying 1 size larger than you expect is needed and don't buy early. It happened with gloves and slippers."
