Why sheepskin slippers make the perfect present


When it comes to choosing the perfect present, you can’t go wrong with genuine shearling or sheepskin slippers. These chic indoor shoes make an ideal gift for any occasion.

Why sheepskin slippers are the ultimate in comfort

Sheepskin slippers are super soft and insulating, giving your feet warmth and cosiness from the moment you slip them on. The natural cushioning of the wool inside is excellent for tired feet and will mould perfectly to the shape of your feet.

All year round?

Sheepskin slippers aren’t just for winter; they offer year-round comfort. The natural properties of genuine sheepskin help regulate temperature, keeping your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer, making them a gift enjoyed during any season.

Hypoallergenic

Shearling is often considered hypoallergenic, so it is less likely to cause allergic reactions in people with sensitivities to other materials.

Sheepskin contains a wax called Lanolin, produced by the glands of wool-bearing animals, providing antibacterial self-cleaning properties, perfect for your slippers and feet.

Are sheepskin slippers an environmentally friendly choice?

Choosing sheepskin slippers is not just a gift to you or a loved one, but also to the environment. Sheepskin is a natural, renewable resource, making these slippers an eco-friendly option. Unlike synthetic materials, the production of sheepskin has a lower environmental impact, making it a sustainable choice for those who are conscious of their ecological footprint.

Sheepskin slippers vs shearling slippers

Sheepskin slippers are tough and durable; shearling slippers, on the other hand, have all the benefits of sheepskin slippers but with more luxurious textures and streamlined designs. We use the same high-quality shearling in our slippers as in our garments, making Gushlow and Cole slippers unique and perfect for feeling chic indoors.
