Here at RicardoBH, we think sheepskin is the best. But do you know what? So does Mother Earth! Not only is it packed with great qualities like being ultra warm and durable, breathable and water resistant, it has loads of Earth healthy traits. Here are just a few of our favourites:
Sheepskin is compostable and biodegradable! Unlike most synthetic materials which are thrown away and accumulate in landfills; sheepskin is a natural material, therefore it decomposes and becomes part of the earth. How cool is that?
The fleece of sheepskin is resistant to flame and static electricity. On top of that, the wool is considered by the medical profession to be hypoallergenic. Now that’s good news!
Sheepskin is a by-product of the food industry. In other words, buying sheepskin supports a sustainable and environmentally conscious industry. By opting for sheepskin instead of furs or synthetic materials, you are supporting responsible and renewable businesses, which is good news for everyone.
Opting for natural wool like sheepskin means choosing a product which will keep you warmer, drier and more comfortable than any synthetic fibre ever can. Therefore, using a natural resource has less of an environmental footprint than artificial products do, which tend to make unnecessary demands on the environment by using more electricity and manufacturing. The choice seems obvious to us!
