Fine Sheepskin Outerwear From The Sheepherder
Diane Blessing grew up sewing and has been handcrafting shearling outerwear and sheepskin slippers out of her shop in Alma (and before that, Breckenridge), Colorado since 1980. Every Sheepherder brand item is handmade by Diane herself, insuring that you have a one-of-a-kind item that is made with impeccable quality and attention to detail.
This customized, personal attention is what sets a Sheepherder garment apart from any other sheepskin apparel you may find. This is not a big-box sheepskin jacket or imitation sheepskin vest. What you receive from The Sheepherder is true, genuine sheepskin that is handcrafted to fit your specifications for color, fit and style. Most of our sheepskin is tanned in the USA. Some finishes (Antique, Napa and Brisa) are produced in Turkey as they require special machinery not available here. This is a Sister tannery to the one in the USA and all work is overseen by my US tannery.
We are not a factory, we are not a chain. We are not a third-party retailer. The Sheepherder is an actual person in a store, creating your sheepskin vision and listening to your requests. Call us any time to speak to Diane about your garment, or stop by the store to witness your sheepskin outerwear being created.
