Wool Fibres & Textures
Auskin Wool Fibre & Texture Options
Auskin woolskin products are crafted from skins selected for their natural properties and texture to suit product requirements
Auskin Group offers a range of woolskin texture and fibre options that capture the natural characteristics of wool ‘the miracle fibre’. People around the world are coming to realise and appreciate the unique properties of natural wool. Auskin looks to preserve these properties in their natural form, attached to the leather it grew on.
Auskin sheep & lambskin wool finishes provide a tactile appeal and a natural softness that cannot be matched by synthetic materials.
Auskin Shearling or shorn lambskin is available in a number of forms and specifications to meet specific customer requirements. The unique quality of the material means it is suitable for using in a broad range of end uses. From interior products, such as designer rugs, through to more industrial uses such as polishing material for the vehicle and tech industries. And shorn lambskin is also available as “twin face” for manufacturing “Ugg” boots and other footwear.
What is “twinface”? Twin face material is finished on both sides. The wool side of the pelt is typically shorn to a specific wool length and dyed in a range of colours. The reverse side is also finished in a fine polished or suede leather.
Shearling material produced for garments or footwear is made by tanning the shorn pelts of a yearling sheep and shearing the wool to provide a uniform depth.
The textural options offered by Auskin lamb & woolskin provide consumers and manufacturers with a range and quality of natural character that cannot be matched by man-made fibres.
