Does Uggs use high-quality double-faced sheepskin in their boots, or single-faced sheepskin?

Single-Faced Sheepskin

Single-faced sheepskin is a reference to a sheepskin which is used only on one side. The wool or fleece side of the single-faced sheepskin is fine but the hide has a quality problem either with uneven dye results or flaws in the hide which make it cosmetically and commercially unacceptable. Such sheepskins are not used in authentic, traditional Uggs sheepskin boots and slippers. These sheepskins are used as liners in products which use some other material as an outer. Thus, they lose most of the unique, special qualities of real sheepskin boots and slippers.
