• Handmade on Our Farm

    Our making begins on the hills of Dartmoor in April, normally at 3am with sideways rain as we lamb our flocks. Our lambs are then kept with their mothers until August when they begin to self wean. Our ewe lambs are kept and brought into our flock and our ram lambs are farmed by us until they go for hogget (the stage after lamb) the following year.

    Our sheepskins are then tanned in Britain’s oldest tannery on Dartmoor, before returning to our on farm workshop. Our products are then handcrafted in our workshop on the outskirts of Chagford, Dartmoor where Sara and Bethan stitch our sheepskin products on the land where the sheep graze. This gives our products full traceability and cuts our production distance from miles to yards. We value origin and the environment above all else from the farming in fields right through to our finished products.

    We work with local suppliers wherever possible. Our thread is supplied by a Falmouth based business, our labels are weaved by a Plymouth based company and all our printing is undertaken by a business in Exeter.

  • Bespoke Service Available

    We welcome the opportunity to make items bespoke for our customers. Sara and Bethan have already covered chairs, headboards, motorbike seats and car seats in sheepskin and have even stitched 15 sheepskins together to make an extra large sheepskin throw.

    We are always up for a challenge so do get in touch if you have an idea that you'd like to discuss with us. Please email: sales@thedartmoorshepherd.co.uk for all bespoke enquiries with photos and measurements (if possible) and we can get a quote together for you.
