Information for sheep breeders, crofters and farmers

If you keep native, heritage or coloured breeds of sheep we would love for you to be part of our Tús Sheepskin Collection, from farm to floor.

We are sourcing skins directly from farmers, crofters or small holdings. Our aim is to create a fully traceable eco-tanned product, which completes the sheep farming cycle.

 

How it works

 

  • Prices for raw skins vary depending on different breeds, skin condition, quality, rarity and size and we are happy to work with small numbers.
  • Courier cost of skins is covered and arranged by us. We have regular pickups from Munro's of Dingwall who we already work with as skin merchant.
  • The best time of year for skins is before new wool growth which is usually September to January, with a staple length of around 2 inches. From February, winter wool tends to fall off, leaving uneven patches of new growth wool showing.
  • For longer wool breed we are open to taking skins with fleece longer than this. Generally up to 2 years old.
