Herdwick Sheep Wool 1kg

Made in the UK

UK Wool


Supports & protects wildlife


Sheep's wool is a wonderful natural material! It has many useful properties. It's fantastically versatile and has lots of different applications.

This 1 kg box of scoured raw natural sheep's wool is exactly what it says on the tin - 1kg of pure wool - it has simply been collected from the farmers and washed

So it may even have some little pieces of plant substance left behind - this is because it's a raw, natural product that hasn't been processed yet!

Herdwick wool would be a great gift for any gardener, felter or crafty person in your life - you can use it in so many different ways!

Here are just a few suggestions:

  • sound insulation
  • heat insulation
  • mulch
  • instead of moss in hanging baskets
  • for birds to line nests with
  • as filler for cushions and door draught excluders

Just note if you're using it around the home - this is just washed wool.  Unlike our other wool products, it hasn't been treated against moths.

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 Wool

This is great wool for the birds to use during the nesting season.


What could be better for the environment use this all the time and compost it after use


Using this for first planting to determine slugs from new plants.working so far.will also try in my baskets


Made a tufted garden cushion out of it. Really good :)

Caroline Millar

Great to spread around hostas and seems to deter slugs from destroying the new growth. The birds have been seen flying off with some though, so I've put some near the bird feeders for them to help themselves. Ordered a kilo which turns out to be quite a lot of wool! Am interested in its use as insulation but a bit worried it might attract moths?
