Merino sheepskin is largely classified as an Australian icon. Since the 18th century in Australia, merino sheep have been an integral aspect of Australia. Because Australia’s merino sheep were prized for their wool, the sheepskin industry became an import aspect not only culturally, but economically as well.
Today, Australian merino sheepskin is classified as being of the very best in the world. They have soft and dense piles that are perfect for insulation. That’s why Merino sheepskin has become so popular, and is used in many ugg boots today (including all of our Euram Ugg boots).
Australian Merino sheepskin is expensive, so many ugg boot manufacturers do not use this material in their products. However, reducing costs this way also hinders product quality, so we’ve chosen to not cut any corners to deliver only the best to our customers.
Sheepskin is unique. Its fibres are suitable for clothing and apparel, and insulate the body even in the coldest conditions. The way in which air is able to circulate between the fibres also allows breathability, meaning that it’s suitable all year round.
All Euram Ugg boots are made in Australia with Australian merino sheepskin. When purchasing ugg boots and sheepskin apparel, always ensure that the product is made with only the very best – Australian merino sheepskin.
