Winter Sheepskin Throw
BY Jaap Schaap
In a special partnership, Dutch shepherd Jaap Schaap offers limited-edition exquisitely soft sheepskins of the highest quality exclusively to RW Guild. Schaap herds sheep on a farm in De Hoge Veluwe National Park, a Dutch park in the central province of Gelderland that is one of the largest nature reserves in the Netherlands. Free to roam, the sheep graze on natural vegetation that offers a rich range of vitamins and minerals, resulting in peerless sheepskins that are unbelievably soft and supple. These organic, ethically-sourced hides are naturally tanned and completely sustainably produced.
Brush regularly with a wire brush. Refresh the hide in the winter by placing it wool side down in the snow, taking care to not get the leather wet as it will harden.
