Sourced from long haired Icelandic sheep, the Velvet Hippo Asher Throw adds a touch of soft texture to any surface in your home and doubles as a canine nesting pad. Its unique hair system gives these throws a distinct character: the longer hairs repel water, while the shorter inner hairs maintain warmth. These versatile throws are antimicrobial and water resistant. Due to the nature of wool, every sheepskin is unique and varies slightly in shape, color, and pattern. The throw only gets better with time and results in a more textural, lived-in look.
