Natural fibers that'll ♥︎ you back.
Soft, stylish, and sustainable? We’ll take it all! The benefits of clothing made from natural fibers have long been praised for their durability, comfort, and eco-friendly appeal. This positive focus begged me to ask “why just clothing, and not our homes?”. The sacred space where we spend so much of our time (far more than usual these days) has no reason to omit these perks. At 3oak, we are committed to carrying products that will last a lifetime in your home instead of the landfill. Our newest lineup of homegoods includes beautiful products made from the finest natural fibers available on the market. After testing and hand-selecting each item (lounge-time included), we are thrilled to share our findings, and how these goods will treat you kindly in return.
Everyone loves a twofer.
For centuries sheepskins have been recognized for their comfort and lush texture. In the home, they can serve a variety of purposes, both decorative and functional. Whether it’s draped over a piece of furniture, used as a rug, or a playmat, there are many great ways to style sheepskins in your home.
But aside from creating an effortlessly cozy atmosphere, what else do these natural beauties bring to the table? Our vendor for all things fluffy has a lot to say on this topic. Fibre is a highly accredited distributor of fine natural wool products, who is well known for achieving high standards in environmental practices, as well as the ethical treatment of animals used to create their products. Both the longwool and curly sheepskins in our homegoods line are incredibly easy to care for, and prove just what makes this material so great:
•Provides excellent heat and moisture regulation
•Improves acoustic performance in the home
•Has flame resistant properties
•Has naturally anti-static properties
•It is a hypoallergenic material

preserving our most precious resource
On top of those winning qualities, sheepskins and all natural fiber goods play an important role in preserving the world’s most precious resource, water. In the fight against pollution in our oceans and waterways, many people are making the smart switch to sustainable natural materials such as linen, cotton, wool, and hemp. While we love them for their beauty and comfort, we also want to provide homegoods that don’t shed harmful microplastics into the environment with each wash. In a 2016 study conducted by the University of Plymouth in the U.K., it was found that up to 700,000 microfibers can be released in a single load of laundry. If you’re washing synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon, that’s a lot of plastic debris that will later be ingested by both wildlife and humans. It’s no wonder that natural textiles are a win for both your home and your home planet.
