Barty Brown and Grey Sheepskin Rug

Barty Brown and Grey British Sheepskin Rug


This shaggy rustic British rare breed sheepskin rug is a lovely mixture of shades of greys and browns. The wool is soft to touch, with longer tufty hair on top of a tightly packed dense matted fleece. There is some variation in the fleece length, there is a shorter haired section on each edge of the rug, where the wool has been sheared, creating a slightly stepped effect, adding a lovely, unusual feature.  

This woolly rug is best described as 'shaggy', the variation in fleece length and the woolly base are likely due to this being from an older sheep that's spent a long time spent in the great British outdoors. It's available at a lower price than most of our rare breeds due to this rather rustic look and feel.

The UK has more sheep breeds than any other country - over 60 and counting - and many more cross breeds. Herdwick breeds are found primarily in the Lake District where their coarse wool keeps them warm in this mountainous landscape. Glencroft British sheepskin rugs are 100% British and entirely by-products of the meat industry - that means they are from British sheep, tanned in a British tannery, and hand finished in our Yorkshire Dales warehouse.

Richard hand finishes 100-200 sheepskin rugs every week (watch how here), with most going to specialist independent retailers across the country. We randomly pick a few out for sale online, once they're gone they're gone! You will receive the EXACT rug in these photos.
