Features and Benefits of Sheepskin


UGG® uses only the highest-grade sheepskin available. Twin-face sheepskin is used in many of our core products. A piece of twin-face sheepskin has been treated on both the fleece side, and the skin side, providing the soft comfort UGG® is famous for.

Grade-A sheepskin is extremely dense and soft, which provides for a more comfortable and durable material. Lesser quality material and synthetics can be coarse, scratchy, and non-breathable. Grade-A sheepskin breathes naturally, wicking away moisture, and allowing air to circulate freely.

Fleece breathes, wicks moisture away, and allows air to circulate, keeping feet dry.

Sheepskin is naturally thermostatic thus keeping bare feet close to your natural body temperature regardless of the temperature outside.

cut bootOur fine woolen sheepskin breathes, wicking heat and moisture away to keep your feet dry and at body temperature indoors and out.

Sheepskin is a naturally thermostatic material. This means that while you're wearing sheepskin, it's automatically regulating your body temperature throughout the day. Because of this, UGG® sheepskin footwear can be worn all year round.

In addition to regulating body temperature, grade-A sheepskin breathes naturally, wicking heat and moisture away.

How to use UGG® Sheepskin Water and Stain Repellant

Please treat sheepskin and suede footwear with UGG® Water and Stain Repellent prior to wearing to avoid any initial staining. Please strictly follow the below instructions to avoid any damage during the water and stain repellent process.

Spray the sheepskin surface with UGG® Sheepskin Water and Stain Repellant evenly until it appears wet, but not soaked.

Let the boots dry naturally for at least 24 hours. DO NOT dry in direct heat or sunlight.

Lightly brush in one direction with a very soft bristle suede/nubuck brush to raise the nap and natural tracking.

Please note that when properly used, UGG® Water & Stain Repellent with a suede/nubuck brush will help to prevent, remove, and reduce stains and raise the nap and natural tracking of the material.

Like any fine garment, sheepskin is delicate and not all stains can be prevented or removed. With proper care and cleaning, you can expect your footwear to last longer, but we in no way guarantee that it will remove all stains nor prevent stains from occurring.

If you have any questions on how to care for your luxury footwear, please contact us at 1-888-432-8530. This product is safe for sheepskin when used as directed. The directions below must be followed closely to properly care for your sheepskin.
