Sheep Skin Rugs

One of the main reasons why our sheepskin rugs are so soft and gorgeous to look at, is the way the animals are raised. They are born in the wild and live largely without human contact, which means that the wool is heavily influenced by local climate and conditions. That's why sheepskins from different parts of the world are completely different in appearance and feel. 
Icelandic sheepskin rugs are known to be very hardy and sturdy, as the sheep have adapted to the special Icelandic climate. As all other products on Sheepskinhouse.co.uk, these sheepskins are byproducts of the local meat industry. The hair of Icelandic sheepskins can be described as rough, as it isn't as smooth as the English or New Zealand sheepskin hair. There is both a long wool and a short wool variant of the Icelandic sheepskin. The long wool variant looks wonderfully natural and give a slight rustic touch to the home, as its hairs are up to 20 cm (8 inches) long. The short wool variant has shorter hair (5 cm / 2"). Further down the page we have listed some advantages of both long wool and short wool sheepskin from different places of origin.

Sheep Rug

Here in Denmark, where we at Sheepskinhouse have our offices and warehouse, sheepskin is a popular products, used in many rooms of the home and combined with different styles. In the kitchen sheepskin rugs are popularly used to sit on, either in the form of small seat pads or larger sheepskins that reach over the back of a chair. Larger sheepskin rugs and design rugs are used as carpets in the living room or bedroom, and small rugs and cushions make a great addition to a sofa or an armchair. The possibilities are virtually endless. As mentioned above, sheepskin products can be found all over the world and sheep from different part of the world provide entirely different sheepskins. In our product range you can find sheepskin rugs from the following places of origin:

  • New Zealand
  • Iceland
  • Tibet
  • Austria
  • England
  • Sweden

 New Zealand sheepskin is known for its versatility and durability. It can be found in many different colours and as rugs, carpets, pillows, seat pads, bean bags, and poufs. Also available in many different colours is Tibetan sheepskin, that can be found as a rug, throw, cushion, and seat pad. Tibetan sheepskin is very similar to Mongolian sheepskin, as it has small, corkscrew resembling curls. The main difference between the two is that generally Tibetan sheepskin has a higher quality. 

Icelandic, Austrian, English and Swedish sheepskin rugs are organic and not dyed. They come in beautiful natural colours. For example, the Gotland sheepskin from the Swedish island of Gotland has gorgeous natural grey curls. Another sheepskin that can be found in natural grey is Icelandic sheepskin. The natural grey colour is incredibly rare compared to the more common black or white colours. If you are looking for brown or beige tones, then perhaps a curly Austrian sheepskin is the right thing. Alternatively, English sheepskin can be found in lighter beige colours and in darker brown tones. Additionally, English sheepskin is incredibly soft.

Benefits of long wool sheepskin
The main advantage of long wool sheepskin is the extra warmth the long wool provides. The long wool provides a lot of comfort when lying on a chair or the sofa. If you tend to get chilly when sitting on a chair then a long wool sheepskin from New Zealand or Iceland might be just the thing for you.

Benefits of short wool sheepskin
Short wool sheepskins on the other hand are easier to keep clean. The shorter hairs are not as likely to take on dirt or dust. A short wool sheepskin combines low-maintenance with comfort and softness.

When it comes to care of a sheepskin, both short wool and long wool variants are surprisingly easy to maintain. Regular shaking and hoovering on a low setting will remove superficial dirt, while many stains can be carefully removed with a damp cloth. Stronger stains can often be removed after they have dried, by brushing the sheepskin with a special sheepskin brush.
