Shepherd of Sweden have craftsmanship at the heart of what they do. They take responsibility for the whole chain from fleece to the final product. They accept no form of mulesing and guarantee that no products from them come from sheep exposed to this. Their skilled craftpeople still do most of the work by hand and with more than 70 years worth of experience you can be sure that all of their products meet the highest quality.
Founded in 1982, Shepherd of Sweden use traditional crafting techniques to create timeless and authentic sheepskin-based products. These expertise are combined with their long-standing passion for the detail of Swedish design, and an appreciation for the materials that they work with, and realised throughout their range of slippers, shoes, home furnishings and accessories. Hand-crafting is a key element in their work; each slipper, for example, is made from a number of different treated sheepskin pieces, which are assembled mostly by hand. Shepherd of Sweden love sheepskin and wool for their unique properties – sheepskin possess natural antibacterial properties, keeps you warm in colder climes, and even feels cool when it’s hot.
Avoid washing this product for as long as possible. If the slippers have to be washed, we recommend that that they are hand-washed or in the washing machine at 30 degrees (wool program). Use a mild liquid detergent (preferably a detergent especially made for wool). Dry slippers as natuarally as possibly (ie by letting them dry in a normal room temperature). The best way for the slippers to hold their shape after washing is to place some paper inside them. Using a soft suede brush on the slippers when they have dried, will return the product to its original quality. Avoid drying in direct sunlight or near to a radiator
