(OPENPRESS) December 30, 2011 -- The Sheepherder is one of the few sheepskin retail shops that can promise all of its shearling products are 100% "Made in the USA," throughout the entire process. By buying sheepskin slippers and shearling products from The Sheepherder, customers can guarantee that they are receiving a quality, handmade item. Too often, customers order sheepskin slippers or other shearling garments online from factories or chain stores, and the product they receive is far from what they were expecting. Every single sheepskin garment you receive from The Sheepherder however, is made from genuine sheepskin, and is tailor-made to fit your specific requirements for style, fit and color.
Genuine Sheepskin Outerwear from the Sheepherder
The shearling we use in our custom-made sheepskin slippers, sheepskin vests and coats, and other sheepskin products comes from domestic sheep raised in the Rocky Mountain states. The sheep are raised commercially for meat, and their hides are tanned and processed right here in the United States and used in our shearling coats and accessories. Even the buttons we used for our ladies and mens sheepskin vests and coats come from deer and elk antlers, which the animals shed naturally each year.
Custom Shearling Jackets and Vests
Once the sheepskin is processed, over the course of twenty-one days, each individual Sheepherder item is handmade by the owner of The Sheepherder, Diane Blessing, at her shop in Alma, Colorado. Diane has been designing and creating shearling garments for over twenty years, and is truly dedicated to providing customers with sheepskin products that outshine competitors in comfort, quality and durability. Some imitation sheepskin slippers, for example, are made from synthetic materials that end up making your feet sweat when you wear them. Sheepherder sheepskin garments are processed in such a way that it creates a hide that naturally wicks away moisture from the body, and remains cool even in sweltering heat.
The Most Comfortable Sheepskin Slippers
The best sheepskin slippers available through The Sheepherder feature top-grade lambskin for the body of the garment, with a wear-resistant cowhide sole for durability and traction. The wool used for these comfortable slippers has natural insulating qualities, and is also breathable and moisture-resistant, making Sheepherder sheepskin slippers appropriate for year-round use. Synthetic sheepskin products on the other hand, are without these essential qualities, and therefore tend to be stifling and sweaty in hot temperatures.
