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.

Merino Sueded Sheepskin
Five generations of the Barry family have been tanning and selecting sheepskin and leathers, so when it comes to choosing the finest, we feel we have a pretty good inherent knowledge.
Merino Ironed Sheepskin is recognised as being the finest shearling in the marketplace, these exquisite skins have a plush velvet-like ironed wool and a super silky suede, they are medium to lightweight, the perfect skin for the finest sheepskin garment.
Merino sheepskin has a way of "falling" when manufactured is stunning, second to none and the "handle" of these pelts has to be felt to be believed - it is buttery soft and supersensuous like silk.
Merino skins are available in Suede or Napalan finish, this skin is perfect for any occasion and can be worn all season long, in fact, it will become so special, it is doubtful you will want to disrobe come spring !!
