Every year, people around the country look forward to finding out what Oprah Winfrey has included on her “Favorite Things” list, and this year, the coveted collection of products Oprah has deemed the perfect holiday gifts features both sheepskin slippers and shearling gloves, just in time for winter. “I tasted. I tested. I sniffed. I touched,” says Oprah about the rigorous process she used to determine her favorite products for 2014. “I lotioned. I potioned. I snuggled. I brewed. I steeped. I read. I dared, and then I did it all again…and again…and again.” And apparently, after all that product testing, Oprah just couldn’t resist the feel of soft, warm shearling on her skin, choosing two sheepskin products that will make the perfect Christmas gifts for 2014.
Oprah’s highly-anticipated “Favorite Things” list always features a wide range of consumer items, and this year, the talk show host highlighted everything from holiday candles and bagel bites to jewelry and warm winter gear for her Christmas gift guide, including a cozy-looking pair of sheepskin slippers and shearling gloves. The quilted sheepskin gloves featured on Oprah’s list ring in at a pricey $91 per pair, but you can get your own custom sheepskin gloves at The Sheepherder for about half the price. The simple, sleek shearling gloves at The Sheepherder are handcrafted from 100% genuine sheepskin, and are warm and versatile enough to be worn for a drive or stroll about town any time during fall or winter.
Another one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things of 2014” is a cozy pair of sheepskin slippers that feature a waterproof suede exterior and a molded rubber sole perfect for indoor or outdoor wear. Estimated at a price of $140, the slippers featured on Oprah’s list are a little pricey, but you can get the look for less with a pair of our handcrafted shearling slippers from The Sheepherder. Our genuine sheepskin slippers are handmade to order and feature a wear-resistant cowhide sole for durability, and naturally insulating wool that is breathable and wicks away moisture, keeping your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The Sheepherder is also an official retailer of Minnetonka sheepskin slippers and traditional moccasins, which boast a hard rubber sole for indoor/outdoor wear.
Oprah’s “Favorite Things of 2014” list has been released just in time for the holidays, as consumers across the country just begin to consider braving the shopping mall crowds and kicking off their Christmas shopping. Lucky for you, you can purchase a pair of handcrafted sheepskin slippers or shearling gloves custom made to order from The Sheepherder with just the click of a mouse.
