Each material that is used in their pads was selected because it is the best choice for each particular job. Their genuine Australian sheepskin comes from older, wool producing sheep. Unlike lambskin, whose wool is very thick and tends to be coarse, the sheepskins from older sheep are dense, strong and very soft. This type of wool allows us to shear the wool down to about 1" length, which is the optimum length to protect against pressure points, deliver an effective thermal balancing layer and yet retain the fit and contact of your saddle. The two major benefits of real sheepskin are its ability to prevent pressure points and to deliver vital thermal balance.

Considered a sustainable fiber vs a live fiber. Durable, Breathable, Washable, Hydrophylic, Elastic and Protective. Soft and plush even after washing. Their product will not felt up after washing as with other wools currently on the market. Returns to original appearance with Brushing.
