A Chimney Sheep® is a removable chimney draught excluder made from highly durable, naturally breathable Herdwick wool. The wool is felted to create a perfect plug for the chimney and a handle added for easy insertion and removal. A Chimney Sheep® makes your home feel more comfortable by stopping warm air escaping and preventing cold air from coming in, whilst providing sufficient ventilation to prevent damp issues occurring. Installing a Chimney Sheep will make your home feel warmer, reduce wind noise, heating bills, CO2 emissions and prevent any debris fall down from the chimney into your hearth.
Our range of small Chimney Sheep® chimney draught excluders are for small chimneys. All our round-shaped chimney draught stoppers form part of this range as well as our smallest oblong Chimney Sheep®. If you measure your chimney and there isn’t a size small enough, get in touch for a bespoke Chimney Sheep® quote. Please ensure that if you're using a Chimney Sheep® in a gas fireplace, it has been decommissioned as advised by Gas Safe or use one of our magnetic fireplace draught excluder blankets.
The medium range of our wool chimney draught excluders contains our most popular Chimney Sheep® sizes. The 12” x 20” Chimney Sheep® and 9” x 16” Chimney Sheep® are particularly popular with our customers. The malleability of the Herdwick wool ensures that they can be lodged into a wide range of chimney shapes and sizes to keep chimney draughts at bay effectively.
Our range of large Chimney Sheep® are designed to fit bigger chimney flues with the two largest sizes needing two separate handles to get them in place. The biggest standard size we carry in the range is a 14” x 36” Chimney Sheep®. However, we do see chimneys that are bigger than this. If this is the case, get in touch with your chimney measurements and we can give you a quote for a custom-made wool draught excluder.
Enhance your Chimney Sheep® draught excluder with our selection of accessories and add-ons. We've got a range of dangles that act as a reminder when your Chimney Sheep® is in place as well as our storage wraps that keep soot contained when you aren't using your Chimney Sheep®. We’ve also got extra extension rods to ensure your Chimney Sheep® fits well if placed high in the chimney flue.
There is no such thing as a universal chimney draught excluder as each chimney is different in shape and size. To determine the best size Chimney Sheep® for your chimney, you’ll need to measure your flue and use our size calculator. Simply choose your chimney shape and input your chimney dimensions to get the perfect size.
