About Fleeceworks accessories
Fleeceworks is driven by the owner’s passion for producing the very best sheepskin-based equestrian products. Their focus on comfort for the horse, longevity in their products and continuous innovation has made them one of the US’ leading brands of sheepskin saddle pads and accessories.
The core of Fleeceworks' success is their use of genuine Australian Merino sheepskin, taken from older, wool producing sheep. Unlike lambskin, whose wool and hides are very thick and tend to be coarse, the sheepskins they select are dense, strong and very soft. Fleeceworks carefully selects its pelts for density, softness, and flexibility of the hide.
As well as their choice of sheepskin, Fleeceworks takes great care in the way the pelts are processed: harsh chemicals are avoided to ensure the fleece stays soft and fluffy, the natural oils that repel dirt are retained, and the sheepskin provides a long working life.
Having built a reputation for top-quality sheepskin products, Fleeceworks launched their wool range only after long development and testing led to an equally high-quality product. Therawool™ takes equally soft wool fibres and weaves them on to a breathable poly-acrylic backing. Because a new backing has been substituted for the original hide, Therawool™ products are practical to wash regularly, as well as lower in cost than sheepskin products.
Therawool™ will not felt up after washing as with most other wool products currently on the market. Soft and plush after washing, at most a quick brushing is needed to return the pad to its original appearance.
Fleeceworks extensive accessories range is mainly sheepskin-based and includes covers for head collars, hackamores, breastplates, and even surcingles, as well as seat savers and even ear plugs. A range of Therawool-based girth covers is in development.
