In Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus),
We continue to process and ship orders daily.
The health and well-being of our employees and customers is our highest priority. This is especially important to us as a family-run business with seniors involved and newborns in our homes. It is our intention to remain open unless a government mandate is imposed on all businesses in our City or region.
How we are adapting:
To help slow the spread of COVID-19 we are no longer offering in-store pick up or visitors to our Vancouver location. We are also limiting our on-site staff to one office employee and one warehouse employee at any given time. We have been sanitizing all surfaces regularly and maintaining social distancing from one another as well as from courier drivers.
What this means for our customers:
We continue to process orders as usual and aim to meet our same-day shipping guidelines, although minor delays may occur.

Why Sheepskin & Wool?
Genuine sheepskin offers a wide range of advantages over similar materials. Perhaps the most recognized and traditional description of almost any sheepskin product is "warm in winter, cool in summer". The warmth concept is easy to comprehend, while the "cool in summer" characteristics still puzzle many people. The answer lies in the breathability of the hollow wool fibers. Wool fibers are shaped like a spring coil which allows air to circulate. This open space means that merino wool is also very absorbent and wicks away moisture and sweat. All of this allows for a cool and dry comfort on a car seat cover, mattress cover, decor rug, baby lambskin, or medical sheepskin.
Full covering "shearling" (wool still attached to the leather skin) is one of nature's warmest insulating materials. However, it is also breathable and able to absorb over 30% of it's own weight in moisture before feeling damp. This means that while all of our slippers, hats, gloves, and mitts are toasty and warm, you rarely sweat while wearing our products.
We all perspire while we sleep, and these breathable features of wool can have an amazing impact on us while we sleep. Most people perspire about one liter of sweat per night. Surrounding yourself with merino wool while you sleep is the best way to keep yourself dry and undisturbed throughout the night.
