Besides their grounding, calming effect, organic sheepskins also have some incredible medicinal benefits, as long as they are organic and have natural lanolin on the fur. If they are mass produced, dyed or chrome tanned (98% of sheepskins) none of these medicinal effects apply.
Our organic sheepskin blanket / rug has many medicinal benefits, besides just being eye candy and a delight to touch. The heaviness of the piece can be beneficial for those interested in pressure stimulation therapy via weighted blankets. The weight combined with the medicinal benefits of organic sheepskin, makes this a great option for those looking for some well deserved relief.
If you are going to buy a sheepskin for yoga or Kundalini yoga, make sure it's organic and from a small happy farm. There are a lot of sheepskin stores out there. Many of them claim to sell “eco-friendly” natural sheepskin products. Here’s my issue. If the pelt looks perfect, obviously dyed or bleached, and they sell multiples of the same pelt over and over, this is NOT eco-friendly, this is NOT sustainable, and this is NOT natural.
