British Sheepskin

Fully machine washable sheepskins from Dartmoor, with free postage to anywhere in the UK. Hard-wearing luxury fleece on thick hide. Our sheepskins are by-products of the meat industry and at the end of their (very) long life, have the good grace to biodegrade harmlessly.

Whilst the individual wool fibers are hydrophobic,and making sheepskin easy to clean, the structure of the fleece allows it to absorb up to 30% of its weight in water. Sheepskin wicks moisture away from the skin and comes in to its own whilst camping, at festivals, or whenever you are stuck in the same spot for a long time.

While a Dartmoor sheepskin can always add a touch of luxury to any room, their practical durability make our fleeces suitable for a range of uses, from casual rugs and throws to the most delicate (and yet thankfully robust) baby mats, cushioning seat covers or perhaps thrown in the garden as a nice insulating mat for a lazy afternoon in the sunshine with a glass of something cold.

All of our sheepskins have been produced from flocks reared outdoors in the British landscape in accordance with the highest animal welfare standards.  But there is also something else about the our British sheepskins that we like our consumers to understand ….

A sheepskin is not a disposal fashion item.  We sell them in the knowledge that they are not something to be used and discarded.  If you no longer want your fleece in front of your fireplace or on your favourite bench in the kitchen, there are so many other uses for it. When they do eventually come to the end of their life, you can rest assured they won’t sit in landfill for hundreds of years like many of the man made products in use today.
