Sheepskin Mittens M02 O/S
Our women's sheepskin mittens are another great example of Owen Barry eco upcycling.
A huge amount of OB production is focused on manufacturing sheepskin coats & jackets, we supply these designs to some of the leading retailers and designers from all over the globe.
As these jackets have to be cut from the very best parts of the finest sheepskin this leaves both skins and scraps which are ideal for the cutting and making of sheepskin mittens.
Every pair of mittens will be super snuggly and warm, they are a one size ladies medium fit; we only do one size, as frankly, this accommodates the largest proportion of the public.
Sheepskin has a generosity of stretch meaning even larger hands are accommodated.
Offered in a variety of colours, all of which tone and complement outerwear and walking pursuits.
Sheepskin offers some protection against the wet, it is NOT waterproof but sheepskin mittens are an ideal snowball making tool, they will get wet, but dry them naturally on a warm heat ( NOT HOT) and they will be super ready and warm for the next "battle".
A classic cut from beautiful skins - great value, great fun and eco-friendly - what's not to love?
Hurricane Merino Curly
Hurricane Curly Merino Skin has been a long-time favourite in the Owen Barry Shearling collection.
It is a hard wearing skin with a stunning texture in its curly wool.
The outside of the pelt has a leather or slight Napalan finish applied, Napalan is both a protective and a fashion finish, the leather surface can offer more protection against staining and grubbiness than a standard suede.
The Hurricane napalan has an aged look which it distresses more over time accentuating the vintage look, this makes Hurricane Napalan our first choice for Aviator type jackets, it also gives hats & accessories a real outdoors feel.
Snow Cap - Sometimes we select the Hurricane to have snow-capped wool, this tipping effect gives a stunning texture and emphasises the curly finish by giving a depth of shading to the wool.

Ironed Sueded Sheepskin
Many people recognise Sueded Sheepskin with an ironed wool as what traditional sheepskin (or shearling) looks like, and understandably as it is by far one of the most popular sheepskin finishes.
The shearlings that we use at Owen Barry have all been hand selected to ensure that the suede surface is always soft and sensual, with a slight velvet nap on the suede.
Each skin is painstakingly matched with its neighbours to ensure that the garment is completely constant in colour and texture all over, this is a very skilled process, with many years training to perfect, if this matching process is not carried out to the highest standard, a sheepskin coat can end up looking like a multicoloured patchwork piece, unlike many companies OB also match all the wools as well ensuring that when you open the coat, inside there is a consistency with the wool colour & finish as well.
Ironed wool is just that, in the tanning process the wool has been ironed and polished to bring out the superb luxurious feel and finish that nature provided.
