What is shearling?
The term ‘shearling’ describes a skin of sheep/lamb that has been shorn only once. It has a suede surface on one side and a wool surface intact on the other.
Whether it is genuine or artificial, a wool layer stitched in the surface is not true shearling. Real shearling breathes and is more flexible, and heavier in weight. The wool is much denser than synthetic.
A shearling is what creates the soft, uniform look, and feel.
