Shearling has been a textile that connotes style and class. In medieval times, the wool trade was a highly lucrative business, with nobility buying up sheepskin for both fashion and decor. Hollywood celebrities put shearling on the big screen, increasing the demand for a shearling coat as seen in blockbusters like On The Water (1954). Most of us remember the huge popularity of Ugg Boots in the 1990s, as well. Shearling is back again, this time available in a variety of luxurious faux options as well. Whatever your preference, natural shearling or man-made, there are many excellent shearling winter coat options to choose from this season.
