Even going back to the days of Genghis Khan, the Mongols used to wear sheepskins for warmth as well as making footwear from them, and even making their tents and bedding from them as well. There is nothing warmer, and the sheepskins that we use are a by product of the meat industry, which means that we make a beautiful product from waste material.
