Just like wool, sheepskin (also known as shearling) is breathable (think snug in winter but not too hot in summer either), resistant to bacteria because of the natural lanolin oils that self-clean, and can even help you feel more relaxed and rejuvenated (touching sheepskin has been found to stimulate your body’s circulation and immune system). It really is a bit of a wonder material.
Sourcing TussockWe turned to New Zealand for Tussock – it’s where we could seek out the softest, naturally curly fleece. It’s also a by-product, comes from sustainable sources, and, being completely natural, is biodegradable too.
A styling tip or two
Tussock comes in two sizes: this one, a single sheepskin, and a double one, which is made from two sheepskins stitched together. Choose this size to throw over the back of a dining chair or armchair to add cosiness, or to sit beside your bed and step out onto in the morning.

The joy of sitting in
Ways to rekindle the joy of an evening in, from the practical (choosing the perfect seat), to the fun (setting up a home cinema) to the emotive (why ‘hygge’ is still relevant).
