An extremely large short woolled sheepskin rug that's been dyed to a consistent colour. The fleece has been shorn all over to approximately 25mm / 1 inch and is silky soft to touch. It is from an American sheep breed that has been tanned in the UK and hand finished by Glencroft in their Yorkshire warehouse.
Glencroft call these sheepskins 'throws' as they are very different to their other British tanned sheepskins, their softness and size makes them perfect to drape over chairs or sofas.
Each rug averages about 100 x 70cm (39x28") although many are bigger. They are a natural sheepskin shape which varies from rug to rug as this is a natural product - no two are alike, each one is unique.
Glencroft sheepskin rugs are entirely by-products of the meat industry. Richard hand finishes 100-200 sheepskin rugs every week (watch how here), with most going to specialist independent retailers across the country.
