Stunned at the quality build, the warmth, the price! An absolute superb winter warmer for the ears!
on 17 November 2014
My last purchase of sheepskin earmuffs was to buy a very expensive pair of Emu muffs which were rapidly sent back upon arrival. Yes, they were made of beautiful sheepskin but they were so badly made I was shocked! Big lumps stuck on the side of my head looked ridiculous and they were badly misshapen and no amount of trying to manipulate them would make them sit right or hang right. They were returned and I was put off buying expensive sheepskin earmuffs and I managed with a wool beanie to keep my ears warm when out hiking and walking in winter.
Came on here to browse once again 'sheepskin earmuffs' as its bitterly cold here right now and having just got in from a hike where my whole body was warm but I had earache from cold ears, I was desperate to try again. Most of the reviews here were superb so I risked it, knowing I could return if they were as bad as the last pair I stupidly bought, thinking that they would be great as they cost almost £80!
These arrived on Saturday morning, an hour before heading out on a hike. They come in a neat clear sea-through round plastic tub which is nice and ideal to enable them to be wrapped as a gift. And what a gift they would be! I am more than delighted, I don't know the words to express my delight. These cost a quarter of those that I returned and wow! they are what I expected when I paid £79!!
They unfolded when I took them out of the plastic tub they arrived in, perfectly shaped! No distortion or bad workmanship. Perfect! When I examined them closely they were perfectly made everywhere, I mean perfect. The sheepskin is delightful and when I put them on my head they fit me perfectly! A few reviewers have mentioned that they think they may be a bit small for standard heads? none of that here, my head is a standard size and they fit my scalp and my ears perfectly. Snug, warm and above all else, they look amazing and are flattering! Very flattering! Unlike those huge round balls of fluff the last one's I stupidly bought were like. These sit flat to the head as they are designed properly to fit well.
So soft, so warm, so snug, so perfectly made. I cannot believe the price i paid! I am going to buy another pair to save in the wardrobe for the future for the day these I am wearing now need replacing (though, if you look after them, they are so well made they will last years!) as these are just perfect in every way.
I bought the Chestnut and they match so beautifully with my Chestnut Uggs :) and my Celtic Sheepskin boots, these are just amazing, do buy some! I think you will love them as much as I do. Such amazing value for money! A superb Christmas gift for a loved one, who could not love these?
Thanks to Amazon I now have an amazing pair of earmuffs, of the quality I wanted and the look I wanted at a price so much less than other brands charge for nasty tat that looks a mess.
