Wool Felt Mulch Shillies


In Stock

Select Size: 1kg (Covers 1 Square Metre)


Made in the UK


Recycled materials



Our felt shillies resemble the traditional slate shillies but are made of 100% Herdwick wool. They make a perfect garden mulch, enriching the soil and acting as a protective shield to the natural elements.

They are:

  • Naturally hygroscopic
  • Slug and snail deterring
  • Insulating
  • Biodegradable
  • Naturally nutrient-dense

The felt shillies can be used on individual potted plants or across beds and will help to ensure strong plant growth throughout the whole year.

You will need approximately 1kg of felt shillies per 1 square metre of soil.

These are packaged in re-purposed plastic bags from our warehouse.

Buy Land Plant Trees

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Great mulch and slug repellent

No more problems with slugs and snails since using this wool pellets

Great mulch

First time I've used these but I have high hopes that they'll work well to keep the soil frost free around my outdoor bananas.

Margaret Benton

These are a great product. Unfortunately I have some blackbirds that enjoy throwing them around the garden, onto the grass etc! I’ve moved them (not the blackbirds!) to the back of wider borders, and am topping them with bark chips to try to weigh them down. A great idea though.

Catriona MacKenzie

I am hooked on these very useful shillies. I am delighted to be able to use herdwick wool products and they do the job better than anything else. Chimney sheep products are are wonderful.

I bought these to cover a raised bed, more to deter the blackbirds from tossing the soil around ( there are plenty of opportunities in the rest of the garden for them! )
They look amazing, and have encouraged early growth in the bulbs, I shall see how they perform in the wind - which I have my fair share of - but as they seem to hold the moisture well, may well stay put!.
I shall definitely purchase more very soon!
