When we started our search for the perfect material to make our pet beds we had no idea we would find it right on our doorstep !
We wanted beds that would be loved by pets and their owners, so they needed to look great, feel great, be made in a sustainable way AND we needed something with additional benefits that would make them something special. The answer was ....genuine Irish sheepskin.
Sourced from the North-West of Ireland where the sheepskin is graded in the top 5% in the world , we teamed up with a workshop in Sligo who; with over 32 years experience really know their sheepskin and hand check each individual piece for imperfections before final crafting.
Sheepskin is a recycled by-product , sustainable and 100% biodegradable, not that you would be needing to throw it away any time soon as it is an immensely durable material designed to last for years, a real return on investment.
Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, sheepskin is great for pets of any age as its fibres breathe to act like a natural thermostat.
The lanolin in the wool acts as a natural moisturiser, keeping your pets coat glossy, and it also deters bacterial growth and other irritants (like bugs) - it is often used as key ingredient in flea / tick control sprays.
Our beds are not only designed to look great, but will help your pets feel great. The raised rim creates a sense of security and provides head/neck support whilst relieving muscle pain as real wool helps distribute pressure more evenly.
Finally caring for sheepskin couldn't be simpler, a good brush and a shake (you can even use your dog grooming brush) should keep it looking pristine and as required you can hand / machine wash on a cool setting.
Now you know why we love them, we hope you love them too !
