Our story (it’s about more than just sheepskin).

“But this is Dartmoor”, I said, as it was explained to me that the tannery, one of the oldest and best tanneries in the world, could no longer sell sheepskins locally. The Axminster Carpet factory was closing, with the loss of 300 jobs and the factory shop, which was where sheepskins were sold. An idea was forming. But could we make it work selling just sheepskin?

Could we really run a shop that sold just sheepskin?

The tannery would continue as most of their business was in producing products for larger stores. But it felt wrong that they had to produce standard products, all the same, for the likes of IKEA and John Lewis. Not that there’s anything wrong with a sheepskin from either of these places, it’s just that sometimes non-standard is, well, nicer.

So we started DartmoorSheepskins.co.uk, an online shop specialising in these larger, thicker sheepskins, often patterned or with beautiful brown spots. Each unique, each one hand picked from the tannery. We fell in love with them and wanted them in our lives. We wanted to bring them into other people’s lives, as well as supporting an ancient craft.

Since then we have grown into the store we have today, still called Dartmoor Sheepskins. Our range of products has grown with our customers. We now sell:

15% Off All Sheepskins Throughout October 2018

Are Sheepskins Ethical?

The more we looked into the industry, the more we knew we wanted to sell sheepskins. Millions of people eat lamb, and millions of lambskins are destroyed as a waste product of the meat industry. Only 0.45% of sheepskins are ever tanned.

Sheep are generally raised outside in the UK. There is simply no reason to keep them indoors, so they enjoy a life on the land. The sheepskins we source are raised on Dartmoor. Read more about the ethics and the industry here.

Our perfume oils are beautiful, and like all our products, ethically sourced

Agarwood has a rich woody scent with fresh spice, faint floral hints, tobacco, leather, honey. A pleasant masculine fragrance. Strong. Agarwood is one of the most expensive woods in the world, but our oils are just £4 for an 8ml bottle. Have a look at our range here.

Palo Santo is a fragrant wood, when burned it smells fantastic and clears the air

We supply the finest ceremonial incenses from within the UK, sacred wood, resin and gum. Choose from Frankincense, Myrrh, Copal and Palo Santo.

Why not add a generous free sample of tea to your order?

Butterfly Pea Tea is a delicious refreshing brew, rich in antioxidants and beautiful in colour. It responds to a little lemon juice by changing from blue into purple, see try it both ways to see which you prefer. Kids love to play with it and it’s good for them too.

We look forward to serving you, if you have any questions or suggestions we’re all ears. Remember, we started selling just sheepskin! Feel free to join our mailing list, where we give subscriber discounts and exclusive offers.
