Decorative and Rare Breed Hill Sheep2018-01-20T17:53:09+01:00

This collection is often described as “Rare Breed” but they are actually cross bred hill sheep with unusual and interesting patterns in their fleece.  Most of the sheepskins are robust and dense making them a perfect choice for rugs which create a feeling of comfort and warmth.  Fleece length is subject to seasonal variation, it is longest in the spring.  The nap is generally of a good quality and thick which produces a hard wearing back making them an ideal option on natural floors.

Demand for rare breed sheepskins has increased over the last few years.  Our premium grade hides offer you a fabulous opportunity to take advantage of this growing trend.  They are available in a range of sizes.  Price is dependent upon size and fleece thickness, ranging from low mid point to higher mid point.

Top Tip:
We sometimes stock skins from mature sheep which are far larger than those normally for sale in the UK giving you a unique selling opportunity.  Ask the office for details.

Product Care Guide

Decorative & Rare Breed Hill Sheep

Avoid strong direct sunlight. Avoid damp or wet conditions to prevent damage to the leather pelt. Brush regularly to help maintain and bring out the best in the wool fibres. Small stains and light soiling can be spot cleaned with a clean damp cloth and diluted sheepskin shampoo. Hand or machine wash in cool water (30°C) using a suitable sheepskin shampoo (some wool detergents contain phosphates and alkalis which can damage and stiffen the pelt). Machine wash on a gentle wool cycle. Please note, machine or hand washing may affect the appearance of the natural wool fibres and the leather pelt. We recommend shaking and brushing before washing to reduce the risk of tangles. After washing, while still wet brush with either a wire wool brush or comb to help restore its appearance and lift fibres. Dry flat where possible and gently stretch the leather during drying to aid flexibility when dry. For more thorough cleaning we recommend you consult your nearest specialist cleaner.
