Herdwick sheepskin rug

Mad Hatter Herdwick Sheepskin Rug – Repaired


A British Herdwick breed sheepskin rug, with its distinctive grey and black colouring, with some subtle brown highlights. This rug is at a discounted price as it has a small repair with a piece inserted to a bald patch in the middle (see photos). It is such a stunning natural Herdwick that despite this we thought it was worth photographing for our website. A gorgeous rug at a very good price.

There is some variation of the fleece length, with longer hair at the top and bottom of the rug; as well as small bald patches around the edge, included deliberately when we hand trim to ensure the rug will sit flat without curling under. The wool has a coarse wiry texture like all genuine Herdwicks, although it is softer in places. This coarseness is what keep the sheep warm in their native Lake District mountain home  

The UK has more sheep breeds than any other country - over 60 and counting - and many more cross breeds. 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 every few weeks. Once they're gone they're gone!
