We all love something a bit unusual, it makes life far more interesting! Although we love making and talking about luxurious sheepskin slippers, it is nice when we get a bespoke project or one of our more quirky products coming through in an order. Here are a few of our favourite products that are a little different to the norm!
The Sheepskin Footmuff
One of the most under-appreciated products in our arsenal of goodies, not only is it beautifully warm but just perfect for those who sit for long periods of time. We have had lovely stories from customers, who after purchasing their Mum/Dad a Footmuff have been delighted with the response - in particular they are great for those who may be infirm.
Every Footmuff is hand cut, made, finished, trimmed here in the Workshop and has been since 1988. Our footmuff is designed to be used with both feet placed inside, perfect when watching the TV on a chilly evening. They are made from the finest Tan Twin Face Sheepskin on the market, making them wonderfully warm yet still soft and supple. The seams are bound for extra protection. Finished with the British Sheepskin fur collar, which can be left down or rolled up for extra warmth.
We're the only ones making these beautiful muffs, most have been outsourced to China, ours remain British made - and proud!
Our Footmuff is practically famous, considering one has been given on the Graham Norton Show to both Jerry Hall and the cast of Cold Feet as a gift!
Available here for £75.99
Our bespoke Leather Slippers although they may seem fairly ordinary on first glance, are in fact far from it!
We make these fabulous slippers in a huge variety of colours, including Fushcia, Gold, Mulberry Purple, Navy, White, Brown, Orange, Yellow and Silver! Even better, each part of the slipper can be a different colour, so we never quite know what combination we will be asked for. We've had some eye-watering combos that have been anything but "normal"! At least you'll never get them mixed up with another member of the family - although we can't promise they won't have slipper envy!
All handmade here in the Workshop with British sheepskin and English leather from world famous Pittards, they are both exceptional quality and incredibly strong.
Available here from £57.50
Sheepland Sheep Footstool
Our namesake, the origin of the Sheepland dates back to these beautiful Sheep footstools. Originally we made these into rocking sheep, which became very popular, hence why we became "Sheepland". We even had one of our gorgeous Luxury Sheepskin Footstools in Harrods as a display for a very well known bedding company, it sat in residence for many years. To this day Johnstons of Elgin have one of our Sheepskin Footstools in prime position to highlight their luxurious natural woollen fashion.
These wonderful sheep are made from beautiful long fur ivory rugs, black toscana sheepskin for the feet, dense shearling on the legs and finished with British trimming sheepskins. They have a handmade wooden frame inside, which is then hand padded and stuffed. We then make the head, ears, tail and face, again, all by hand. This sheep is entirely British made here in our Somerset Workshop.
Available here for £399.99
Handmade Sheepskin Teddy
Once again this is one of our original line up, well, they do say the classics are always the best! So way back when, we started out by making individually sheepskin Teddies for local shops to sell. Nowadays sadly the local shops have closed and we can no longer produce them for a wholesale price. However this humble chap remains, a fully jointed, hand stuffed, hand cut Teddy bear, made from special "Baby-Safe" sheepskin.
We just love the reaction we get when this fluffy gentleman is unwrapped, he makes quite an impression at fayres and trade events we can assure you! The tacile fur calms babies and is naturally fire resistant, antibacterial and of course looks stunning! Have a look how they are made here.
Available here for £99.99
These are just a few of our lesser known handmade sheepskin goodies, we love holding onto our history and our heritage through continuing these more unusual crafts, especially our namesake!
