Why Should I Dress My Seats With A Premium Set of Genuine Sheepskin Seat Covers?
The only word that completely captures the true essence of these seat covers is luxury. They are absolutely the Rolls-Royce of seat covers, and nothing even comes close to matching their superior qualities. When you adorn your seats with custom fit sheepskin seat covers or semi-custom fit sheepskin seat covers, you get:
- The planet's softest, coziest and most luxurious seat covers available for your vehicle
- Seats that always maintain a consistently pleasant temperature no matter what the mercury reads–neither freezing cold in the winter nor scorching hot in the summer
- An all natural material that far surpasses the comfort, resilience and durability of any other fiber, be it natural or man-made
- Protection for your factory-installed upholstery against normal wear and tear from friction, UV damage and spills
A few words about the superior fit of AutoAnything sheepskin seat covers
Our lineup of premium sheepskin seat covers is available in two fits: custom (our 5-Star Tailor-Made Sheepskin Seat Covers) and semi-custom (our 3-Star Semi-Custom Sheepskin Seat Covers). Let's learn about the main differences between these two seat cover styles:
Custom Fit Sheepskin Seat Covers:
Just as an expensive Italian suit is properly measured, cut and stitched to fit the unique shapes and contours of the wearer, so too is a custom fit sheepskin seat cover meticulously designed for a precise fit over your seats. No part of your particular vehicle's seat is forgotten or overlooked: not the position of the head rest, nor the location of the seat's ergonomic controls, nor even where your seatbelts are mounted. Everything is taken into consideration, and these made-to-measure seat covers will fit like they were factory-installed. Moreover, custom fit sheepskin seat covers will not obstruct your seat's side-impact airbags, so you'll be just as safe as before, only with better looking and better protected upholstery. Our 5-Star Tailor-Made Sheepskin Seat Covers best exemplify this specialized appearance, fit and feel.
Semi-Custom Fit Sheepskin Seat Covers:
While a tailor-made suit fits your body to a T, off-the-rack clothing still looks and feels great, and you usually have enough green stuff left over for a matching shirt and tie. Our semi-custom fit seat covers are the economical alternative to the tailored suit. They are stitched together following patterns that will work with your vehicle's seats as well as with similarly sized seats in other cars, trucks and SUVs. They still leave access to lumbar controls, and they can accommodate side-impact airbags as well. This level of fit and value comes with our 3-Star Semi-Custom Sheepskin Seat Covers.
Learning About the Amazing Characteristics of Genuine Sheepskin Seat Covers
Human ingenuity has lead to some truly mind-boggling inventions. From the wheel all the way up to the international space station, humankind is always looking to make the next big technological leap. Of course, the natural world has plenty of its own marvels, many of which that simply dwarf our advancements. Besides the aurora borealis and DNA, one prime example of a natural wonder is sheepskin. Let's examine what makes it unique.
No other fabric, natural or man-made maintains a constant temperature the way real sheepskin does. Whether you're sitting in traffic on a sweltering Southern summer's day or cruising through a freezing New England winter's evening, you can be sure that your sheepskin seat covers will always stay at a pleasant temperature. In fact, that's where sheepskin's nickname, "Nature's Thermostat," comes from.
There's no voodoo at work inside the sheepskin seat covers that's regulating the temperature. Rather, it's all due to the natural makeup of the material itself. While the fur is dense and soft, it allows air to freely flow between you and the seat. This natural circulation of air limits the conduction of heat, so you're always cool and dry in the summer and warm and cozy in the winter. No matter if your vehicle has been baking all afternoon in a shade-less parking lot, or freezing all night long in a blizzard, your sheepskin seat covers will always feel just right.
Not only does genuine sheepskin regulate your seat's temperature, it is also an exceptionally absorbent material. Every wool fiber can suck up around 30% of its own weight in moisture. While that fact alone is noteworthy, what's more impressive is that sheepskin retains this moisture while still feeling totally dry. Even on a muggy August afternoon in Texas, your back will always feel dry and pleasing. The same certainly cannot be said for leather and vinyl upholstery.
If you were to pit pure steel against our genuine sheepskin in a no holds barred, anything goes, battle royal of strength, which material do you think would be left standing? If you're thinking of betting on steel as the ultimate champion, then keep your wallet in your pocket, unless you enjoy throwing your money away. Even though it sounds unbelievable, it's quite true: sheepskin is indeed stronger than steel, ounce for ounce!
As incredible as it sounds, our genuine sheepskin seat covers have superhuman strength. This allows them to withstand years and years of use and abuse in your vehicle while still retaining their thick, plush mat. Keep in mind, though, that just because your sheepskin seat covers are stronger than steel, they do not feel like you're sitting on an I-beam. On the contrary, lounging on the softness, cushiness and fluffiness of real sheepskin is undoubtedly the closest thing there is to what reclining on a cloud must feel like.
We've scaled remote mountains, trekked across hostile deserts and ventured into the darkest corners of the globe to find the finest possible sheepskins. As it turns out, the Earth's best sheep live a peaceful existence in the South Pacific, on the island of New Zealand and the continent of Australia. Sheep have long thrived in these two locales, and have become an integral part of their communities. In fact, the 45 million sheep in New Zealand far outnumbered the human population by a factor of 11 to 1 in 2002.
Whether it's the clover they graze on or the hospitable climate they live in, there is something special about this region that allows the sheep to grow supple, strong, superior wool fur. Regardless of the distance, we only carry seat covers that are crafted from these premium sheepskin pelts.
Hand Made in the USA:
Not only are the materials in our genuine sheepskin seat covers first-class, their craftsmanship is unparalleled, too. Each set of seat covers is expertly fashioned by master craftsmen, who use time-honored techniques and tools of their trade.
Your sheepskin seat covers are made-to-measure for your specific year, make and model. The craftsmen begin by selecting only choice pelts with perfectly matching colors. Working from over 700 precise seat patterns, they next measure and cut the sheepskin into just the right shapes and sizes. A typical set of seat covers is cut from 4-6 sheepskins. Once all the pieces are made, they are sent to the sewing room, where they are masterfully stitched together using a double reverse stitch and finished with all the proper rust-proof, nickel plated mounting fasteners. At every stage, from their birth in the workshop to their delivery at your doorstep, these suburb sheepskin seat covers are created by the expert hands of highly-trained, skilled and experienced craftsmen.
Which Set of Sheepskin Seat Covers is Right for my vehicle?
When it comes to picking the perfect set of sheepskin seat covers for your vehicle, you only have to ask yourself one question: do you want luxury or total opulence? That's because every set of sheepskin seat covers we carry is incredibly luxurious, comfortable and sure-fitting.
There are, of course, differences between the 3 styles that we offer, so check out this reference to learn all about the unique traits of our sheepskin seat covers.

An Introduction to the Ordering Process
At AutoAnything, one of our primary goals is to make the sheepskin seat cover ordering process quick and painless. We will ask you key questions about which factory options you have on your vehicle because our sheepskin seat covers are made-to-measure. We probe because we want to ensure that your new covers fit snugly while still leaving openings for ergonomic controls, seatbelts and even side impact airbags.
Before you order your sheepskin seat covers, our advice is that you take a trip out to your vehicle and give your seats a quick visual inspection. While you're looking them over, jot down the answers to these fundamental seat-related questions, which you will be asked during the ordering process (don't worry, there won't be a final test):
- What is the year, make, model and series of your vehicle?
This is, of course, the most important question of them all. In order to deliver sheepskin seat covers that fit, we need to know: What vehicle they are fitting into? A Citroën's seats have little in common with a Bentley's. If you are unsure about your vehicle's year, make, model or series, your registration or your pink slip can give you a definitive answer.
- What style seats do you have?
Whether it's bucket or bench seats, we have a sheepskin seat cover for you. Based on the year, make, model and series you select, we will show you a drawing of your seat style. However, you should visually double-check to make sure that the type of seat in your vehicle matches the type of seat in our graphic.
- Do you have power seats?
Modern cars use electronic controls wherever they can, and this includes moving the seats forwards and backwards. Take a look on the sides of your seats to see if there is a control panel, and note which seats do or do not have these controls. Sometimes, the driver's seat will have this amenity while the rest of the seats work the old-fashioned way with an under-the-seat lever.
- What kind of upholstery do you have?
Different stock upholstery requires different inner linings. If your seats are leather or vinyl, which tend to be slippery, an inner lining with better grip is needed to keep the covers from shifting around. Likewise, if you have cloth seats, then your seat covers don't need to grip as tight.
- How many doors does your vehicle have?
This one is pretty obvious, but it makes a big difference because 4-door models sometimes have a rear seat that does not match the 2-door coupe. Just to be on the safe side, we've included this handy door reference.
- Do your front seats contain side impact airbags (SIPS) that deploy out of the side panel of your front seat?
This question is very important because a sheepskin seat cover has the potential to interfere with your vehicle's safety features. All of our sheepskin seat covers can be crafted with special openings to accommodate SIPS. Just let us know during the ordering process, and we'll take care of the rest.
- What type of headrest does your vehicle use?
Because you can upgrade to a custom set of headrest covers to match your sheepskin seat covers, we will need to know which kind is in your vehicle.
- Where are your seatbelts mounted?
Some cars have seatbelts that come directly out of the back of the seat, so the sheepskin seat cover has to have special openings stitched in. Others are attached right to the side of the automobile, so no special holes are needed. Which kind does your vehicle have?
- Does your seat have an adjustable lumbar support system?
Does your seat conform to your body, or does your body conform to your seat? With lumbar support, it conforms to you. For added driving comfort, many auto manufacturers are installing lumbar support systems into car seats. The controls for these systems are usually found right on the side of either the driver's seat, the passenger's seat or both.
- Do you have pivoting armrest(s) on the driver's seat? The passenger's seat?
Last, but certainly not least, we will need to know if your seats have built-in pivoting armrests. With this question answered, you're on your way to the joys of genuine sheepskin seat cover ownership.
All of these questions are extremely important for ensuring that you get a sheepskin seat cover that fits exactly. During the ordering process, we will also ask for contact information, just in case we have additional questions about your seats. We may also need a photograph from BMW, Pontiac and Mustang owners because seat styles can vary so dramatically.
