There are a wide variety of breeds of sheep and some have very distinctive fleece types. The main types are Merino and Toscana. Whilst Merino sheepskins are lightweight and soft throughout with a shorter sheared wool finish. Merino is highly sought for its wool in the production of knitwear, whereas Toscana is considered to be too luxurious for use in knitted items. It is also the softest types of wool available due to its composition of fine fibres. Its warmth to weight ratio compared with other wools is superb. It is excellent at regulating body temperature; it provides warmth without overheating the wearer.
Sheepskin is characterised by its wool fleece on one side and a suede, nubuck or leather surface on the other. The wool lined side is usually worn on the interior of coats, jackets, gloves and boots for added warmth and insulation. Lambskin offers the same sought-after benefits but is a lot lighter weight and softer and is thus more exclusive. In the case of the Toscana Lambskins sought here, they select only Shearlings, meaning lambs that are not shorn. This means the wool has a extra fine tapper at the fibre ends of wool fleeces and so they are extra soft to the touch.
