What Can I Do With My Sheepskin?
Sheepskins can be placed on the floor, hung on your wall, put on your chair, car seat or bed.  They can cover your coffee table or you can let your baby sleep on it (even your pet if you like).  They make a nice gift or conversation piece, even a unique door prize or just a warm"thank you" present. Be creative, it’s yours to do with as you choose.

History
Tanned hides are nothing new to us. For centuries people have been wrapping themselves and their babies in these warm furry pelts. Wool clothing historically had its beginning during the Stone Age about 10,000 years ago. These products have maintained their popularity with the "fashion conscious" buyers through the years (See Pendleton and L.L. Bean and the Shepherd Roegiers for examples).

Despite the fact that England tried to discourage the North American wool industry, by 1665 there were 100,000 sheep on these shores. Today the numbers have increased into the millions. Sheep have always been a viable farm asset.  They provide ALL OF us not only with tender, delicious meat and wool for fashionable durable clothing, but also with soap, candles, lotions, tires, explosives, oils, medicine, AND MORE.  Sheep in all 50 states fill our food and fiber needs today just as they have in the past.

Unbelievable as it sounds:  Wool can keep you:

WARM IN WINTER - COOL IN SUMMER.
Sitting on a sheepskin allows up to 33% of the body's perspiration to evaporate.  In other words, you won't feel as hot or clammy as you sit on your motorcycle, or in your truck, car or chair.  WOOL BREATHES!
