Men’s Sheepskin Gloves
Hand cut and handsewn from the finest Merino Sheepskin.
The men's gloves are super cosy & comfy because the gloves have been table cut in the traditional way, they will still "fit like a glove".
Every pair has been exquisitely hand-cut and finished.
Individual hand-stitching, detail to detail, This was where it all began for Owen Barry when Owen Came back from the War he picked up on his skill of hand cutting gloves, started with leather, and diversified into sheepskin.
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.
