Gotland Sheepskin Pelt
Please join the wait list for this product.
These much-coveted ethically sourced Gotland Sheepskins come from rugged Gotland Island off the coast of Sweden. Limited in their availability, these one-of-a-kind, all-natural pelts are prized for their supreme suppleness, uniquely curly wool (curls are known as purls) and silvery grey tones, ranging from dark to light and every grey in between.
The oldest race of sheep in Sweden the Gotland has been developed since the 1920's and is farmed for its wool and meat. The sheep are raised using traditional free-range shepherding practices. The sheepskins are tanned to meet strict statutory environmental requirements. As with all Auskin pelts, Gotland Sheepskins are a biproduct of the meat industry.
Layer them on the floor with a cozy pillow or two, or casually toss them on a sofa or chair. Color and patterning vary from sheepskin-to-sheepskin, just as nature made them.
Auskin is an Australian-based company that sources, designs, manufactures, and distributes natural fiber products. These range from ethically sourced Alpaca wool from South America to ethically sourced sheepskins from the depths of the Southern Alps of New Zealand. All Auskin sheepskins are a biproduct of the meat industry. No animal is killed for their wool or hide. Auskin's mission is to produce natural products of the highest quality while making the lowest possible impact on the environment, and from field to factory, the company upholds the highest standards.
Avoid direct sunlight for darker items. Dry vacuum rugs regularly with a plain suction unit. Note that Turbo and revolving brush vacuum cleaners can damage the wool fiber and cause frizziness. Dry clean but only if dirty. Remember not to rub, brush, or massage wool skin products when they are damp or wet.
