They’re virtually odor-free, durable, and surprisingly remain beautiful even when used on seating. These Mongolian sheepskins are oh-so-very cozy warm, and you can’t resist running your fingers through the silky wool!

What is Mongolian / Tibetan sheepskin fur?

The Tibetan sheep derive from the original Mongolian sheep, this being the reason their names are used interchangeably. Historically, the original Mongolian sheep migrated to western China, including regions such as Tibet, Qinghai, and Gansu provinces. Over time, in regions like the grass banks on both sides of the Yellow River, rich in grass and mild alkaline water, a new evolutionary process began.

After many years, the Mongolian sheep adapted to their new environment and evolved into a distinct species, what is known now as the Tibetan sheep. Differing from their original Mongolian ancestors. Tibetan sheep have unique curls, are exceptionally soft to the touch, and present a slight crimp, making their fur remarkably tactile. These sheep traverse rugged landscapes in which is know as one of the most severe environments in the world, resulting in a warm and toasty wool fleece.

Starting around 1636, Tibetan sheepskin fur gained popularity as an overcoat material for warmth. The wool exhibited smoothness and curls akin to fur, prompting its use in clothing and décor. Initially, the primary reason for raising these sheep was their meat, which possesses less of the typical mutton odor and a more delicate balance between fat and lean meat. Additionally, the cost of breeding Tibetan sheep in western China was lower compared to other regions. Tibetan sheep thrive in conditions prevalent along the Yellow River grasslands with alkaline soil and underlying saline belts, where they can consume both pure and saline-alkaline water, thus enhancing their natural resilience.

Tibetan sheep became widely bred in the area and one of the main food resources, leading to numerous by-products from Tibetan sheep. The Tibetan fleeces were and still are utilized for their sheepskin fur for clothing and warm blankets. Tibetan sheep roam free across the wild grasslands and rugged terrain. Their sheepskin, meat, and milk are gifts of nature, and they are unique animals.

When acquiring a stunning Mongolian/Tibetan Sheepskin Throw, you are not merely purchasing a home décor item but also contributing to the preservation of a traditional way of life for herders in rural Tibet. The Tibetan sheep are raised in open pastures, free to roam, and all skins are by-products of the meat industry, not harvested solely for decoration. The sheep are sourced from certified natural farms that uphold ethical and environmental responsibilities.

The sheepskins tanned in China are also regularly tested to ensure they do not contain harmful chemicals, including pesticides, heavy metals, and formaldehyde.
