Real sheepskin mittens are one of the warmest and most comfortable types of gloves that you can buy. The real sheepskin material is extremely warm and comfortable, and it is naturally one of the warmest materials available. It is naturally waterproof because it is hygroscopic and can absorb a third of its weight in water without becoming damp, and air circulates between the hairs and this is what causes the ultimate level of warmth. It is hard wearing and durable too, and you can expect them to last for a very long time.

So what makes mittens made from real sheepskin a popular choice as opposed to other types of glove? They keep your fingers together in one compartment, as opposed to individual finger slots. The benefit of genuine sheepskin mittens is that your fingers gain body heat from one another, which helps to keep them as warm as possible, while the sheepskin on the outside will stop the cold air from coming in. This makes them the perfect type of glove for extremely cold winter conditions when it is icy and snowy especially. When professional explorers go on expeditions to the North Pole and climb mountains, real sheepskin lined mittens are often the choice glove because of their warmth properties.
