We are absolutely thrilled to share our brand new undyed Organic Herdwick sheepskins with you, all individually hand picked by ourselves, from our South West Tannery. These skins are 100% British, bred and tanned in the UK, most likely coming from the Lake District as 99% of Herdwick sheep are kept in flocks in the central and western dales of the Lake District. These fells run to over 3000 feet, face the westerly rain and winds and see the country’s highest rainfall. No wonder the Herdwick is considered the hardiest of sheep!

These Herdwick sheepskins are one of a kind, the fur being unique to the breed. In fact the Herdwick breed are born with black fleeces, and at roughly a year old the wool grows out, revealing the fluffy white hair underneath. Over time, their fleeces turn to a dark brown and then to their characteristic grey, which is why these fleeces are such incredible grey tones. 

Herdwick have a very dense fleece with long hair. The texture is slightly different, they are a little coarser than the other Organic sheepskin but still soft and sumptuous. This incredible natural texture is often described as more "wild", it makes them absolutely stunning to look at.  Funnily enough these Herdwick sheepskins are also more water resistant than some other sheepskins, this is because it gets wet more slowly and dries out quicker than other fleeces.

These look incredible in any room, but look especially attractive over chairs on in front of a fireplace - although we can't promise that your four legged friends won't steal them for themselves! These can be kept looking wonderful with a sheepskin brush, which we will provide for free with every rug purchase. 

We have just a few of these available, listed individually, so you can choose the exact rug you want. This one is approximately 101cm in length by 64cm in the middle and has a fur length of 9+cm 

We call these "Organic" sheepskins because they are entirely free of any bleach or dye, they have still been tanned to preserve the hide, but the colouring and patterns have been left 100% utterly as nature intended.
