Sheepskin Sheep Doorstop Ivory
Coming from the same stable as the OB Cow and Dog doorstops (little pun there !) the OB Sheep doorstops have to be credited with leading the way in stunning doorstops.
Designed and first produced over 15 years ago, the OB sheep Doorstops have become a quintessential part of the OB collection.
Handcut and crafted in our Somerset workshop from the finest Curly Merino sheepskin & glorious tactile leather.
We all know the finishing touches make any home special, these Sheep sit well in a variety of settings, but as a gift for a farmer, rural-based family, or sheep enthusiast this doorstop seems like a no-brainer!
Filled with a mixture of Sheepskin wadding, gravel and sand ensure a tactile feel whilst giving a sensible weight.
These Sheep should not be used as toys, because although the gravel & sand contents are tightly handsewn inside, OB cannot be responsible for any bursts or breakages if inappropriately used.
Merino Curly Sheepskin (Shearling):- The characteristic of curly sheepskins is one of the most natural, essentially, the fleece is left soft and curly as you would find in nature. The wool is dense and warm, giving your winter coat a snuggly cosy feel.
The pelt side can be finished with either sueded or napalan (leather) surface.
Sueded: OB hand select all their skins to ensure that the suede surface is always soft and sensual, with a slight velvet nap on the suede.
Napalan: Is both a protective and a fashion finish, the leather surface can offer more protection against staining and grubbiness.
In our Somerset workshops every skin is painstakingly matched for every coat, by toning with adjoining skins we ensure that the garment is completely consistent in colour and texture all over, matching is a very skilled process, with many years training to perfect, if the matching process is not carried out to the highest standard, a shearling garment can include many multicoloured panels, OB also match the wool side of the coat as well ensuring that when you open it, inside there is a consistency throughout.
