Sheepskin Beanie Hat with Pom - Joni
Joni is a very popular hat shape, it fits and frames most people beautifully.
The super soft wool out sheepskin is satin lined, it gives an easy fit, that slips on comfortably and is doubly warm.
When the bitter winds start to blow, Joni has good depth so it can pull down well over and protect the ears, alternatively wearing it further back on the head, when protection is secondary and you are looking for a fashion statement.
Joni is topped off with a fun Toscana Pom Pom, the only 100% ethical & environmental answer to the whole pom debate!

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.

Toscana is nature at her most elegant, guaranteed 100% a bi-product of the food industry.
Toscana lambskins are a tribute to both Mother Nature and the skill of the worlds leading tannery technicians.
With stunning ironed and polished wool, and super silky suede, these skins offer the ultimate in luxurious warmth and style.
Very often Toscana's have a tipped wool which makes them look like the finest furs - but REST ASSURED - THEY ARE NOT FUR, in fact, they are the opposite, Toscana is the only true environmental answer, - 100% bi-product, & biodegradable, obviously better than real fur, but also far better for our oceans etc. than the chemicals used in producing faux fur.
Because of this, we like to use Toscana throughout our collection as both a statement full pelt and as a trimming skin, on our clothing and throughout our accessories range.
