Sheepland XL 100% British Sheepskin Shearlings
Introducing our all new 100% British Shearling, from British sheep, all bred, grazed, processed, tanned and dyed right here within the UK, each individual fleece is hand selected by us from our South West Tannery. These extremely luxurious skins, are available in Grey or Black perfect for armchairs, wheelchairs or under feet to relieve pressure points. These are by far the largest shearlings we have ever had the pleasure of working with, the particular way they are processed in the South West tannery ensures the fur side is exceptionally soft, almost like velvet. These are exclusive Shearlings which we have managed to get just a few, as usually they are used for luxury manufacturing of homeware and clothing for top brands across the world. We have these as “B Grade” skins from the Tannery, so they may have a small blemish on the fur or the reverse, which means you get all the benefits of these skins for a fraction of the usual cost. They remain the largest, softest and most luxurious shearling we have ever had our hands on, so they are well worth it! As ever, we finish each of these British sheepskins by hand in our Somerset Workshop.
Sheepskin shearlings have been used for years in the relief of pain in pressure points, when patients need to stay for some time in one position. They are particularly useful for some of the elderly as they are so soft and dense they cushion the body from the pain of any surface, wheelchairs, mattresses and even armchairs. These rugs are being used in both Care Homes and nursing homes, as well as being available now to everybody that feels they have a need.
They can be used simply on a chair for warmth and comfort, or on a bed, or in a wheelchair, they truly are fantastic. The natural qualities of the skin will stop sweating, increase warmth and even help to keep cool in the Summer. Pure Sheepskin, come back to the real thing Thermal Control Sheepskin rugs are used throughout the year. Wool is a natural insulator and will trap warm air keeping temperatures stable and the body warm. The natural properties of wool have been recognised for centuries. As a natural fibre it absorbs moisture, which, when released, keeps the body cooler and more comfortable. Using sheepskin can avoid unnecessary clothing, frequently a contributing cause to irritability and discomfort.
Sizes: The sizes we have available are in the drop-down menu, they all vary in size and shape. We have measured the length and widest part of the rug width ways. They have a dense fur of 2.5cm. The black has now sold out. More coming soon.
