Sheepskin Mittens M02 O/S
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.
