Among the variety of benefits that are offered by owning a shearling coat, including fashion sense and price, shearling coats are also perfectly suited for all types of weather. Unlike most other types of coats and jackets made from animal skin, these coats possess all of the qualities that allow them to be worn in most types of cooler weather, from cool to very cold. It is for these reasons that shearling coats are considered a “best buy” among consumers.
Like other garments made from animal skin, a shearling coat’s primary function is keeping the wearer warm during the colder months – while looking great at the same time. But because shearling coats are made from sheepskin, they are thinner and lighter than other garments made of fur and can be worn comfortably in relatively warmer temperatures.
How is this possible? Shearling coats and jackets contain insulated lining and are able to “breathe,” meaning they allow some interchange between the air inside and outside the jacket. This means that in either warm or cold temperatures the coats don’t allow the temperature inside the jacket go too far into one extreme or the other. In colder temperatures, the temperature inside the coat or jacket is warm, but not hot or stifling; and in warmer temperatures, the material allows some air-flow to keep the wearer cool.
You can tell which type of coat it suited for the varying weather conditions by the length of the coat. Jackets and cats that extended to the waist are intended to be worn during the temperatures that can range from cold to warm, generally between 50 and 70 degrees. The longer the coat is, the colder the weather it is intended for.
Of course, where you live will influence what style of coat you will need. The higher the latitude (i.e., the further north you are if above the equator, the further south you are if below the equator), the colder the winter months. That means the need for warmer coats. Be sure to buy a coat that matches the weather conditions of your area; otherwise you’ll be either too hot, or to cold in your shearling jacket if you have not bought the appropriate coat.
Shearling coats and jackets owe most of their usefulness to being thin and light. These qualities make these coats stand out compared to other garments made of fur. The coats are made of sheepskin of the highest quality from professionals who use hundreds of years of experience to create them. Most of these professionals are from Spain and South America, and have a history of tailoring many different types of clothes form the material. The coats are made to withstand any weather condition while remaining flexible and strong, keeping the wearer comfortable at all times.
In conjunction with the fashion and hardiness of shearling coats, they are also a great buy, with prices for these coats maintaining a steady price over the last several years. For the buyer interested in finding suitable clothing for colder temperatures that can also be fashionable outside the winter months, shearling coats are a must buy.
