Shearling sheepskin gloves and mittens are the ultimate combination of fashion and function. Shearling sheepskin ensures that your hands stay warm, dry and comfortable. They are also hypoallergenic.
Benefits of Shearling Sheepskin Gloves
Unlike some competitors we offer genuine shearling sheepskin gloves. Genuine shearling gloves are sewn with the wool facing inwards, leather facing outwards, and contain no synthetic materials. They keep your hands warm and offer many benefits that lamb leather or synthetic gloves won't. For more information concerning shearling, take a look at our article about shearling sheepskin.
Shearling sheepskin regulates body temperature
Real shearling sheepskin is thermostatic by nature, which helps to regulate body temperature. Sheepskin is both dense and breathable so your hands will stay warm in winter, but not overheat. This means that your hands will always be warm in your sheepskin gloves, without your hands sweating.
Shearling sheepskin will stay dry and clean
Shearling sheepskin is antibacterial and lanolin is self cleaning when aired out. Sheepskin can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet, keeping your hands dry.
Lanolin is great for the health of skin
Lanolin found in sheep's wool is also very good for a person’s skin; it can limit itchiness and irritation. This is an amazing benefit that will soothe cold, dry hands from the harsh effects of winter.
Sheepskin is biodegradable and takes less energy to produce making it an eco-friendly alternative to synthetically made material. It is a byproduct of the meat industry, which helps to eliminate waste by making use of it.
Choosing the Right Size
How to take a proper measurement
Measuring one’s hand is the best way to find the correct size for you. To determine your glove size, measure the circumference of your hand, keeping the tape firmly level across the knuckles. Measure your dominant hand - the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed. Apply measurement to size chart. For in-between measurements use the next size up.
What if I receive the gloves and the fit is too tight?
If your glove fits a little on the snug side remember that shearling does offer a bit of stretch and with wear the gloves will conform to the shape of your hand. It is important to note that if the glove fits too tightly and you are unable to bend your knuckles you should move up to the next available size.
