Fairy Bridge – British Sheepskin
Dense wooly hair, of the stroke-the-back-of-hand variety. Luxurious, soft and substantial feeling, yet presenting a truly moorland style wild & rugged feel. Stunning swirling colour patches in browns & greys – represented in thick clouds of wool. Quite stunning.
There are some fine local tributaries to the River Dart and building a bridge across one of them was considered a good way to secure a place in heaven for your soul.
Whilst we cannot guarantee what might happen in the hereafter, we can ship quality sheepskin globally twice a week from our base in Devon.
A key practical difference with a Dartmoor Sheepskin is the durable chrome tan, which will tolerate a normal household washing machine and tumble dryer on wool setting, read more.

This is the plunge-your-hand-in variety of sheepskin on thick tanned hide. Our benchmark British fleece offering a superb household (or camping) luxury. British sheep raised on Dartmoor may never see a fence in their entire lives. What they do experience is the weather – flocks will be seen tucked behind the granite tors, intimate with the topography and biologically evolved to thrive in this exposed climate – science shows the functionality of a sheeps fleece – and it is this advantageous handling of moisture that makes sheepskin so comfortable in use.
Your sheepskin will vary from the images shown, as no two sheep are the same. But all are large, thick and very soft. Our sheepskins come as a by-product of the food chain, and while no one could pretend that using sheepskin in any way helps sheep, we are proud to reclaim even just a small (growing) quantity of sheepskins from the destruction that awaits the rest. We add value to these sheepskins, and they in turn add value to our lives and yours. You can read more about sheepskin waste here, and our mission to 100% sheepskin use.

Archaeologists are claiming that a highly significant discovery in the Highlands (recovered from a burial cist in Spinningdale) in the form of a 4000-year-old sheepskin is believed to be the earliest surviving example in Britain. Time to get yours.
