Jacobs and Multicolour Hill Sheep2018-01-20T18:27:13+00:00

A collection of Sheepskins (Hill Sheep) which are either the traditional Jacob pattern or bi-colour combination.  They tend to be robust in nature and make excellent rugs giving an authentic country feel to any home.  Fleece length can be subject to seasonal variation but is always dense and often resilient giving the hides a springy texture.  The nap is thick making the hide a good choice as a rug on natural floors.

Jacobs and patterned hides are becoming increasingly popular.  We can supply you with beautiful quality Jacobs in a range of sizes that will enable you to maximise your profits.  They are a mid range price point though the very large skins do attract a premium, please see Top Tip below.

Top Tip:
Occasionally we have very large long coated premium grade Jacobs.  These are rare in the UK market and offer you the chance to stand out from the crowd and sell a unique product with a real ” Wow” factor.  If you want to stock them let the office know and we will keep you informed at key times of the year.

Product Care Guide

Jacobs & Multicolour 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 cleaners.
