The Natural Luxury of Icelandic Sheep Pelts

A Touch of Nature’s Warmth

At the heart of every one of our Icelandic sheep pelts lies a story of meticulous care and dedication spanning more than a year. Each pelt undergoes a eco-friendly process, transforming it into an heirloom treasure that reflects our commitment to sustainability.
The journey begins with the mimosa bark tanning process a time-honored technique that embodies a holistic and natural approach to preserve these pelts. Unlike conventional methods that rely on harsh chemicals, mimosa bark tanning is a gentle process that honors the integrity of the wool fibers and hide.

During this artisanal process, the pelts are immersed in a bath of mimosa bark extract, extracted from the bark of the Acacia tree. This natural solution not only softens the wool, but it also gives a beautiful, distinct pinkish-beige hue to the hide.
The result? A luxuriously soft and durable pelt that retains its natural qualities for many years with proper care.

Health Benefits Woven in Wool
Beyond their undeniable charm, Icelandic sheep pelts also bring a wealth of health benefits into our homes. The natural wool fibers possess unique properties that contribute to a healthier living environment. Did you know that wool is naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites? This makes it an excellent choice for those with allergies or sensitive skin.

Allergen Reduction: Research published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology suggests that wool may help reduce exposure to indoor allergens such as dust mites, which can trigger allergies and asthma.

Thermal Regulation: Wool’s natural ability to regulate temperature has been studied extensively. The Textile Research Journal reported that wool bedding helped improve sleep quality by maintaining a comfortable body temperature throughout the night.


Nurture and Comfort for Little Ones

For our precious little ones, Icelandic sheep pelts provide a cocoon of comfort. As a mother and shepherdess, I understand the importance of creating safe and nurturing spaces for our babies. The softness of wool soothes and cradles, offering a gentle embrace that promotes relaxation and peaceful sleep. Using a pelt to line  a bassinet or crib and then cover it with a soft blanket makes for a lovely place to sleep.

These moments, filled with warmth and tranquility, are the essence of simple living at its finest.

Caring for Your Icelandic Sheep Pelt

To ensure that your Icelandic sheep pelt remains a beloved staple in your home for years to come, proper care is essential. Regular shaking and airing out will help maintain its fluffy texture, while gentle spot cleaning with a damp cloth and mild detergent can tackle any spills or stains. Avoid exposing your pelt to direct sunlight or heat sources, as this may cause damage to the delicate fibers.

Aesthetic Elegance, Naturally

In the realm of home decor, Icelandic sheep pelts effortlessly elevate any space. Whether draped over a cozy armchair, adorning the foot of a bed, or used as a rustic table runner, these pelts infuse a room with rustic charm and timeless elegance. The natural hues and textures harmonize beautifully with various decorating styles, from modern minimalism to rustic farmhouse chic. Having a warm pelt over a your favorite chair or couch gives a cozy place to enjoy an evening cup of tea or provides a soft place to curl up with a book.

As we weave the threads of comfort and sustainability into the fabric of our homes, Icelandic sheep pelts stands out as a beacon of natural beauty and holistic well-being. From its breathable comfort to hypoallergenic properties, from its ethical sourcing to enduring quality, each pelt tells a story of connection to the land, to our heritage, and to the simple joys of home.
