Quick Facts: Are Shearling Slippers Ethical?

While you are attracted to the idea of copy hugs that shearling offers to your feet and hands, once in a while it does cross your mind to hold on to your thought of buying a shearling product. The reason is obvious. Shearling is made of sheep’s skin. We understand you look for big names to choose warm shearling slippers from big stores as they serve the purpose and do a fine job of warming your toes. But, at the same time, you are looking for a company that puts forth a little effort in the fair trade department. A Company that takes an extra step in the direction of sustainability.

So, we are here to clear that no sheep are slaughtered specifically for their skin. So, it comes from the animal that is already been slaughtered for meat and is a byproduct of the meat industry.

Next, is; how many sheep does it take to make shearling?

Giving you peace of mind, just one. The farmers derive most of their income from food production so, you are going to receive ethically sourced shearling slippers.

This leaves us with one question to be answered - are shearling ethical?

NATURAL SHEARLING AND LEATHER

It is for you to decide as all we can leave you with are facts to make the decisions easier. No matter which side you are on, there’s really no getting around it. Shearling products use animal skin, as all real leather products are. They are usually made of twin-faced shearling offering a comfortable fleece on the inside with a tanned outer surface, and a synthetic sole. Whether you enjoy sinking your feet into luxurious suede boots, wearing a wrist warmer or gloves on the farm, or wrap your loved ones in smitten, know that you’ve got some of UK’s most beautiful materials.

They go on for years - Crafted to last a lifetime

Shearling slippers are not a throw-away item, neither are they delicate or precious. They last for as long as you wash and store them dry. During the wash, shearling tends to shed fewer hair fragments than man-made fabrics. The fibers that it does shed are harmless and completely biodegrades.

ECO FRIENDLY PACKAGING

Just please, DON’T ever lay your hands on fake shearling slippers. It almost always deals with unregulated and possibly hazardous manufacturing materials, dangerous working conditions, and child labour on top of animal welfare.
