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.

Merino Curly

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 Napalan

Merino Shearling with a Napalan (leather) finish is one of the most tactile, buttery soft skins in our collection.

The team at Owen Barry has been selected and handcrafting garments from leather & shearling for over 70 years, and still, today when these Merino Napalan skins come through production we stand and stroke them - Yes really!  these skins are so delightful and soft in hand that we love to handle them, appreciating the quality and technical expertise in tanning skins to this level of finish.

Napalan Merinos have a fine leather surface, that is particularly suitable for reversible garments. The wool is ironed and equally luxurious and velvet like as the pelt.

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 !!
