We only select and buy skins suitable for upholstery, thanks to our long experience in this business. When choosing sheepskin for your upholstery project, it is good to know that no two sheepskins are ever identical. The difference in the wool’s structure, density and original color means that the skin’s ability to absorb dye varies within the same color batch. It is, however, precisely these qualities that enable us to offer an unique product. When preparing an order, our sorting process makes sure the skins have the same wool structure and color. To make panels or single out hides for a piece of furniture, approximately 50-100 skins are considered to find the perfect match. Below you will find detailed information about our different skin qualities, colors charts and download material fact sheets.
CURLY 17 mm, Art.nr 1111001-
Skandilock Curly 17mm is developed for furniture upholstery but can also be used for different furnishing assignments. The wool has a curly texture and is high in density which makes it durable and soft.
Curly 17mm comes in three color collections. In the Classic Collection, the wool has been dyed with highlighted tips and darker base which gives the overall appearance a beautiful marbled finish. In the Standard Collection the wool is dyed in one color tone which gives an even end result that enhances the curly texture of the wool. Limited Collection are colors that varies in stock and therefore the lead times can be longer when ordered in larger quantities.
Skandilock Curly 12mm is developed for furniture upholstery but can also be used for different furnishing assignments. The wool has a curly texture and is high in density which makes it durable and soft. The wool is cut to 12mm which reduces the density somewhat compared to Curly 17mm. This creates a somewhat sharper look and can give upholstered furniture a cleaner contour. The shorter wool also makes the sheepskin even easier to keep clean.
Curly 12mm comes in Classic Collection where the wool has been dyed with highlighted tips and darker base which gives the overall appearance a beautiful marbled finish.
Skandilock Patchwork was created to minimize waste in production. Pieces of Curly 17mm that are surplus after cutting are reused and sewn together into 60 cm wide panels, sold per running meter. The pieces used vary in size, shape and color tone which makes the finished composition beautifully unique.
Our Skandilock Longwool Curly is made from lambskin from New Zealand. With its long wool and a wonderful tousled curliness it is well suited for interior products but can also be used for individual upholstery projects. The skin has a natural curliness but the structure of the wool can vary in curliness and color tone.
Skandilock Cowhides origins from Brazil and is well suited as both decoration and for furniture upholstery. The hides are available in two types: Natural, undyed, where both color and pattern can vary strongly from sharp color fields in white, brown and black to more mottled shades of beige and brown – or colored and printed with graphic patterns mimicking zebra, tiger and leopard.
