With their silky grey curls Gotland skin are considered by many to be the most desirable sheepskins.
The Gotland sheep is almost exclusively bred in Sweden, and since there are not many sheepfarmers left, the skins are very rare. For this reason we have quite large seasonal variation in our stock, with Christmas and summer being the lowest.
The Gotland sheepskin in our shop come from passionate and knowledgable breeders whom we know personally, so we can promise you that our sheepskins come from sheep that have led safe and happy sheep-lives
CLEAN, NATURAL AND SUSTAINABLE
All skins have their natural color and shape. They have been tanned using the gentlest methods available in adherence with the strict Swedish environmental legislation.
Due to the smooth surface of the individual hairs in the fur, Gotland sheepskins will not felt or become matted – even after many years of everyday use. They keep up very well in homes with children and pets, and are a good choice for dining room chairs or as area rugs. A good shake once a week will keep them looking nice and shiny for many years.
The Gotland sheepskins are quite soft and subtle, and will drape very well on furniture. If you want to use the skin as an area rug you may want to consider adding a non-slip rug pad.
