Sheep farming in New Zealand
is still one of the country’s biggest industries, and New Zealand Shearling, or Babylamb products
are a bi-product of this.
Garments are made from the skins of new lambs that do not survive their first few days. Each
lambing season farmers lose about 10% of lambs– the natural attrition rate for animals.
Selected by nature, perfected by Knight
Selected by nature, these skins, known as Curly lamb in Europe due to the fine natural curls in
their wool, are incredibly soft and lightweight, and therefore can be put to good use in the making
of fine soft leather apparel. The small size of the pelts means it can take around 30 pieces to
make a single jacket. To view a selection of these unique garments
