We offer a variety of brands of sheepskin – choice is important to us and whilst we love our brand we are also lucky enough to be able to offer premium sheepskin brands from around the world. Choice however can be overwhelming so to help you out we have produced this brief guide detailing the distinct differences in each brand
Fellhof Sheepskins are an Austrian traditional family company who source their skins from Europe. All of the lambskins are from free roaming flocks, and they have all passed strict OEKO-TEX 100 Certification, meaning they are certified free of any harmful chemicals and pesticides and baby safe.
Aesthetically, Fellhof sheepskins are pale in colour and have a super soft silky feel. The fleeces are only available in shorn hair (30mm) and in honey tone. We supply sheepskin rugs, pram liners, sheepskin footmuffs, mattress covers, mittens and hot water bottle covers from Fellhof. We stock a wide range of their products and have access to their full product choice if there is something you would like that you don’t see featured on our website.
Bowron Sheepskins come in both long (pile 45mm - 50mm) and 30mm shorn hair. They are crafted from New Zealand sheepskin and have their own sanitization process. More detailed information about this process can be found here.. Their honey shorn lambskin is a deeper shade than Fellhof pale and has a springy texture so is good for supporting baby in a cot or bed. We stock pram liners, sheepskin rugs and large sheepskins for beds from Bowron.
Kaiser Sheepskins are a German traditional family company who source skins from within Germany all from free roaming stock. They have also passed the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 test. Kaiser sheepskin tends to be a more traditional 'woolly' texture and the colour is deeper and much more yellow in tone. We stock both honey and mimosa white sheepskin rugs from Kaiser alongside pram liners, mattress covers and a wide range of sheepskin footmuffs. Sheepskin footmuffs are available in both honey shorn hair and mimosa white (a milky white tone). We also stock a specific footmuff (Kaiser Nelly) with luxurious long hair sheepskin in both honey and cappuccino.
Our Baa Baby Sheepskin rugs and liners are from Merino New Zealand lambskins. They carry the Eco-Tan™ certification, are free from harmful chemicals and use a vegetable tanning process which reduces the impact on the environment. They are available in 30mm shorn hair in honey, milk, white, grey, light brown latte and more recently a special edition leopard print. They are also available in honey, grey, light brown latte and ivory long hair. The texture of the shorn lambskins is velvety soft and the longer hair is luxurious and fluffy. We stock our own range of pram liners, rugs, mittens, hats and booties. Coming soon …. Baa Baby footmuffs !
