One of the most exciting elements of Rolex is its killer trade fair. Each year our favorite companies use the event as an opportunity to introduce equestrian enthusiasts to their latest, greatest products.
Our fantastic new sponsor Fleeceworks, manufacturers of Australian Merino sheepskin saddle pads, will be rolling out the red carpet at Rolex for its new Thera-WoolTM line of half pads, full pads, and square pads.
Fleeceworks is super-excited about the new line, and for good reason. The company has taken the same wool fibers used in their sheepskin products and woven them onto a poly-acrylic backing. Thera-WoolTM is a durable and affordable alternative to sheepskin: breathable, washable, hydrophilic and protective with Thermal Balancing Qualities. It is considered a sustainable fiber verses a live fiber.
It’s easy to care for as well, remaining soft and plush even after washing. It does not clump up and harden after washing as with other wools currently on the market, and returns to its original appearance with brushing.
