Made by nature, enhanced by Skyeskyns.

This week, we are launching our new Mimosa sheepskin range.

The skins we tan here at Skyeskyns all come from either our own homebred sheep or from other Scottish sheep farms, minimising travel.  We always strive to be the best we can be, and this new development is the next logical step on our journey to all-round sustainability.

For months, our tanners have been trialling and refining an innovative tanning method, rarely used with sheepskins, and we are delighted and proud to share this news and our new collection of fleeces with you.

By using mimosa (or tree bark) tannin to tan our sheepskins, we are using an ancient, hand crafted and natural process to produce our most beautiful sheepskins to date.  Mimosa creates incredibly soft, high quality leather in the most environmentally sustainable way possible. Ultimately, everything produced within the Mimosa tanning process will be compostable and spread back onto our own croft, supported, in the future, by a series of reed beds.

Each “mimosa sheepskin” in our shop will have been hand tanned in small, limited edition batches in our tannery, the very heart of the Skyeskyns family business, by our highly skilled craftsmen and women.  We are proud to be working with nature in such a low impact and beautiful way.
