The change of seasons results in the change of clothes. Very soon our clothes will be heavier, warmer and softer. Everyone has his own protection from cold – someone will wrap oneself up with a fur coat, someone will warm oneself in a feather coat.
This article is for those who chose a sheepskin coat. Some of its varieties can withstand temperatures up to 50 degrees below zero.
Going to the store for buying of a sheepskin coat, arm yourself with our tips and make the highest demands of the product.
Make sure that a sheepskin coat is natural.
Don't be afraid to seem ridiculous, smell a sheepskin coat – it should have a typical smell of leather. Artificial sheepskin coat does not smell.
Using your fingers, move apart the fur fibres and see if there are knitted structures.
If you see them, it also means that this product is artificial.
There should be a visible leather cut on open stitches.
Check the quality of the product.
The quality of sheepskin coats depends on leather tanning.
It should be uniform, smooth, without scratches and without traces of paint and glue.
If a sheepskin coat is hanging rumpled, do not believe the seller that it just has been brought and they haven’t had time to iron it – the creases mean bad quality of tanning.
Well tanned sheepskin quickly smoothes and restores the shape.
Shake the sheepskin coat. If you can hear a crackle, be ready for a trouble: when this sheepskin coat gets wet, it will be inflexible.
Look carefully at the stitches. On a good quality sheepskin coat you will see double perfectly straight lines without gaps, folds, creases and without catching of the hair into the stitches.
Pass your hand over the surface – its palm should stay clean even if the sheepskin coat is painted.
