Making Sheepskin Hats North Star Trading Co. started up in 1978.  The first product we ever made was a four piece triangle hat, but over the years our product line has grown to include four styles of sheepskin slippers, five different hats, and a smattering of other leather goods. All our patterns are our own designs and represent years of fine tuning. All of our work is done out of our studio on Whidbey Island, WA.

We’re a small company, and it’s important to us to keep a close watch on quality control. We’re proud to have been part of the Pike Place Market community since 1978 and we ship our products all over the world, but we have quite a local following, too.  You may not need a second pair for yourself, but once you’ve experienced the comfort of our sheepskin, you’ll probably get them for all your loved ones!

Shearing lambskin has many fantastic properties as foot-wear. Whether you are snuggled up on the couch or out walking the dog, nothing feels quite like a pair of North Star sheepskin slippers.
