Chimney Sheep Reviews

What a difference! It was easy to place in the chimney, and it has kept us warm over 2 winters. We have not had any need to take it out of the chimney and it has sat where placed through all the very high winds and what a difference to the heat in the room. I only wish I had known about it a lot sooner!

P Morley

Just wanted to say how pleased we are with your product. It has eliminated many draughts from our lounge. We highly recommend it.

Hilary and Richard

I just want to say thank you very much, our house is so much cosier these days :-) We have a rental property which urgently needs chimney sheep too so I will be ordering more from you soon!

Vicky

Thank you for sending our chimney sheep, we have only just installed it because of plastering works with all its dust. It fits perfectly and the cat is now breathing a sigh of relief that she is no longer under threat (she is very long furred) Herdys are some of our favourite sheep when walking in Cumbria, we have mugs to celebrate them, so it is great that you have found this wonderful use for their wool.

John and Lesley

Thank you for your e.mail, my sheep has been delivered & installed & has made all the difference, thank you so much for a wonderful product.

Joanna

Just a note to say a big thank you to you customer service team . I ordered a chimney sheep last Tuesday 17th November at 4pm, your customer service team that I spoke to were outstanding, I was advised that I would have to have a bespoke chimney sheep done for me, even with having to have one made it arrived on Thursday 19th November, and fitted perfectly. Thank you for your expertise and very fast service. I will be recommending your company to other people. Thanks again, and good luck for the future.

Chris

My chimney sheep has arrived and is earning its keep very well! Thank you very much, I can feel a noticeable improvement in the temperature of my house, plus it is quieter too.

Alison

Just wanted to say my chimney sheep arrived within 2 working days of ordering - well done. It's great to be able to support our sheep farmers who I know from watching 'Countryfile' struggle to make money from fleeces. I was also very pleased to have an environmentally friendly way of stopping the draught from our chimney. We don't have a fire and the 'sheep' is more a permanent item. I was also pleased to support fair trade by buying the lovely butterfly to hang from the 'sheep'. Will definitely recommend you as I was told about your firm by my brother. One happy customer

Gill

Just wanted to say I recently ordered two chimney sheeps and they are a brilliant idea. Easy to install, clean, store and superfast delivery, extremely impressed and will definitely be recommending you to folk we know would also benefit from using one of these.

Mr Bench

Thank you very much for your email and placing our order. We received our little sheep and it is proving extremely useful. Kind regards and thank you again.

Vicky

Thank you for my order we are delighted with our chimney sheep.

Pauline

We recently received the new 'sheep' and it fits perfectly. Thank you again for your help in this matter

Sue

The sheep has arrived and it fits perfectly. It’s a simple but brilliant solution and the heart I got to hang from the end is so pretty and adds something decorative in its own right, not just a reminder not to use the fire and accidentally roast the sheep! I shall be recommending these to people I know, especially since they are so easy to fit and such an economic way to cut down on the carbon footprint as well as reduce heating bills, since we only actually use the fireplace occasionally. And when needed it’s so easy to remove and replace.

Wendy

Thank you for such speedy delivery. So well made and it fits snugly into our chimney and immediately stopped the draughts. So much more effective than the ugly bubble wrap previously being used!

Jenny

Many thanks for the chimney sheep, it is unbelievable how much difference it has made to the temperature in our house. Before the sheep, I was having to wear two pairs of socks in our living room there was such a draught now that's gone - I'm so pleased!!!

John

Many thanks for sending our Chimney Sheep so quickly. We're delighted with it because at last the draughts that have been blowing down the chimney in our spare room have stopped! The chimney is at least 40 feet high so those draughts could really whistle down it! And we are so pleased that it's a good use for the wool of the lovely Herdwicks.

Liz and David

The trapezium shaped chimney sheep you made for me arrived yesterday and fits much better than the rectangular one and is keeping out the cold draughts nicely! Many thanks for your help with this.

Judy

We are very happy with the packaging and delivery of the Sheep this morning, and it's all its place in the chimney already.

Glyn and Glenys, from Wales where there are lots of sheep!

Just wanted to say what a fantastic product this is. I can't believe the difference. The fact that it is made from natural fibres and so easy to install AND such a brilliant price :-) Thank you for my cosy living room!!

Jeanette

Absolutely delighted with my chimney sheep- my daughter is finally getting a good night sleep without the howling chimney keeping her awake.

Vanessa

Thank you for sending the sheep and it is now well placed up the chimney. Toastie warm now. Great draught excluder. I can now sit on a different sofa.

Sara

Just to say we are sooooo pleased with our sheep. It's got rid of the draughts from chimney we don't know ourselves. We have a 14 year old house with lots of mysterious draughts through keyholes etc and all of these have also disappeared. Amazing. Only little thing is if the dangly thing we bought (butterfly) could be a bit longer (with longer string) it would be even better. We are telling everyone about them!! Happy new year.

Ciara, Co Armagh

My replacement Sheep arrived today and fits beautifully. I’d like to thank you all for your efficient, helpful and swift service. Wishing you all a good Christmas and a very happy New Year.

Sue

I've been amazed with how quickly I noticed the difference, in sound levels, and reduction in draughts in the room. Would recommend it to anyone.

David

I am truly impressed. My house is traditionally freezing. I installed a chimney sheep 2 days ago and there is no draught! I don't think it will ever be tropical but it isn't brass monkeys. It's bliss!

Sarah, Erdington

Thank you for the new Chimney Sheep; it fits perfectly. Great product and service.

Jo Summerell

Many thanks Jennifer.The sheep has definitely draught-proofed our living space. Once again, our sincere thanks for the speed in delivery, a great product and brilliant customer service.

Lita

Managed to get my chimney sheep up the chimney. Not easy as I have to reach behind the protruding hood & narrow opening, and it is a bit squished as I couldn't get it all the way up, but it now provides a solid block and I can’t believe how much warmer the whole downstairs is. Previously the room with the chimney was always much colder since it faced north as well. Even secondary glazing didn't help all that much, nor the foil insulation sheet behind radiator and also in front of the damper we had put in, but now it is almost as warm as back of house! Very impressed. Wish I’d bought it 10 years ago (but maybe you weren't around then!) Only problem will be getting it in and out when we have the occasional real fire, but I suspect practice will make perfect.

Terry, London

I received the new sheep last week, fitted and noticed the temperature difference that evening. Thank you very much for exchanging the sheep for me.

Joe

Thank you, he's in!

Kim

Thank you for your prompt service. Chimney Sheep arrived yesterday and is already installed. Great idea. Previously used to cover over fireplace with cling film!

Peter

I have received my sheep and it fits perfectly. Last year I had a chimney balloon, however in cold weather it would shrink and fall out the chimney making it useless. As this happened repeatedly it resulted in a puncture in the balloon.

Tom

The Chimney Sheep works a dream. We are looking forward to a significantly warmer room this winter.

Martin M

Just wanted to let you know that the sheep arrived last Friday, installed it Saturday and it's a perfect fit! Thanks for all your help.

Martin P

100 percent brilliant service. I ordered over the 'phone and 2 chimney sheep arrived within 24 hours. How brill is that! Thank you. (And idiot-proof installation too).

Lucy, London

I ordered a Chimney Sheep last week, and was so delighted with the result, that I am ordering another for a different fireplace. I found the speed and efficiency with which you dealt with my order particularly pleasing. Thank you.

Frances, Cambridgeshire

Super fast delivery, great item that works perfectly.

D Brown

Just a line to thank you for your efficient and friendly service. The excluder was delivered on Saturday and fitted by my son in law on Sunday in a very few minutes.

Heather

Just to say I love my n b f - Everytime I go into my lounge I laugh at the thought of a sheep up the chimney - especially one with a chicken hanging on to his tail! (By the way it really works kept out the howling winds last night) Great idea

Lorraine

I received my chimney sheep a few weeks ago and wanted to say 'thanks' and it works a treat...no draught coming down the chimney. Great idea and so simple...well done for a great product.

Diane

Crumbs - well impressed, arrived Christmas Eve. Installed and making a real difference.

Nick

Hello I just wanted to say thank you for my excellent chimney sheep. We have an enormous knocked out fire place in the basement, next to our kitchen, that used to suck all the heat out of the room. We got a 14 x 36 chimney sheep which has revolutionised the whole area. Our rather inadequate central heating now heats the whole basement, I only wish I had known about chimney sheep earlier. Thank you.

Sheona

Just wanted to thank you for sorting out the next size up sheep for me. The room is notably warmer now, I have high hopes (well low, really!) for the next heating bill! Many thanks

Helen

Hi I just wanted to add a testimonial to your already long list. The chimney sheep is a stroke of genius. Thank you! I've been using a homemade wood and foam version for the last decade, so wasn't sure if your product would be much different. How pleasantly surprised am I? The wind is howling, the snow is horizontal and our power is out, but we are all warm in what is normally a rather chilly room. I can't believe the difference. If you're unsure whether to order, don't be! :)

Inga

Sally, just to say a huge thank you for getting our four lovely sheep in the post for the weekend! They arrived on Saturday in time to be put in place before our visitors arrived. I had one in our spare bedroom, and a little girl on a mattress on the floor right next to the fireplace (she had to be there because her mum was on the bed next to her!) - and I didn't worry about draughts for a second! I think having them has given us peace of mind that the chimneys spaces are now as wind-tight as they possibly can be. I love the product and the literature that you've produced too - fun and informative. I really hope the business does well. It's a great idea and you deserve every success. I will spread the word! Thanks so much again.

Kathryn

Thanks for the note with my recently delivered chimney sheep regarding the long rod flexibility. I did have a problem installing it as it requires a degree of force (the throat is 11inches square for a 15inch round chimney sheep). Also, the slopes into the throat are different on each side as the chimney is diverting from the vertical, so this tends to cause the felt pad to rotate from the horizontal and the extension rod then buckles under the force. Fortunately, your note gave me a clue and I used a piece of plastic basin drain pipe cut to length. This worked perfectly, especially when used to tap the felt into place rather than just push it. I’ve now got a well sealed chimney, and just in time as it is windy tonight.

"Hi Sally, my chimney sheep was received last week, installed the same day and is doing a grand job. Just what I had been trying to dream up for years. I will definitely recommend this product to friends and neighbours. Thanks for your prompt service."

Gwen, Cheshire

"We have used the chimney sheep both in our house and in our holiday cottages. The concept of a wool product to insulate a chimney we found intriguing and wonderfully simple. Firstly we found it effective and it stopped unpleasant draughts in our windy part of the world. Secondly we immediately noticed the difference in temperature when the sheep was up the chimney. It is easy to use and our guests loved the idea of Herdwick wool being used as a chimney insulation."

Bob & Diedre, Keswick

"Our chimney is capped, but a lot of dust and old mortar falls down the chimney. The Sheep makes sure the fireplace stays clean."

Ruth, Cockermouth

"We have been using a Chimney Sheep in two of our holiday cottages for nine months now. The guests like to use the open fire at all times of the year. The Chimney Sheep has been removed and reinserted by all who used it, and has generated a lot of interest. It is difficult to quantify the amount of energy saved, but they are well insulated buildings so the main source of heat loss is up the chimney. We are really pleased to be able to use the Sheep and that our guests have been able to use it without any problems."

Jane & Ian, Bassenthwaite

"With the Sheep in place the room is noticeably warmer. If I take it out to light the fire, there is a noticeable up-draught of air sucked up through the chimney – you can really feel it. Worrying to think of that amount of air being drawn out of the chimney all the time before we started using the Sheep."

Greg, Keswick

"This is a baahgain! Just rammed it up the chimney and hey presto, no more being fleeced by the energy companies! Seriously, it's a really good design, and so much easier to use than a balloon. Thoroughly recommended as long as you have the right size chimney."

Jody

"Many thanks for the quick dispatch of my Chimney Sheep and your personal note. It was delivered safely today and was fitted in a few minutes. You were right about the flexibility of the extension rods - but the narrow section of our chimney is a long way up and required 3 extra rods! It was located by a combination of holding the handle and pushing the folded edge with a broom handle...It is already providing a draught-free lounge. A green product and great service. Thank you."

Andy, Hampshire

"Hi Sally, The sheep arrived safe and well on Wednesday. It only took a few minutes to fit and fits perfectly in the chimney. It is already making a difference and the room is much warmer. Thanks again for your assistance and best wishes for the future of your business. Kind regards"

Hugh, Glasgow


"It's made a noticeable difference in stopping cold wind from blowing down the chimney, we have started using the room a lot more now"

Jackie, Cockermouth

"We have two Chimney Sheeps of different sizes to suit each of our open fireplaces. It is only on special occasions or in really cold weather that we ever have both fires in operation so at least one Chimney Sheep is in place to prevent warm air disappearing up the chimney throughout the winter. We also benefit in summer too as we no longer suffer from showers of soot following heavy rain or hail with the Chimney Sheep in."

Ray, Cockermouth

"The service I have received from Sally at Chimney Sheep has been first class. I ordered the wrong size and was given a no quibble refund. Hoping the smaller one fits as this is such a brilliant invention."

Liz, East Molsey

"Received my sheep today and installed it within 20 minutes. Absolutely fantastic. We recently moved into house with an open fire and the draught given that the south each coast is having 25 mph winds, was very unforgiving. After researching on the internet I found your 'sheep'. No more draught, its just amazing the difference it makes. It surely will save a fortune on the heating bills not to mention just so much more comfortable in the house. Thank you so much."

Mike

"Thanks for sending out the Chimney Sheep so promptly (we loved the newspaper wrapping!). We have installed it and now have a noticeably warmer room (we live in a bungalow with an open flue fireplace in the sitting room (that my husband didn't want to block up in case I ever allowed him to light a fire [why would we, we have central heating!])so you can imagine the draughts. I would definitely recommend these."

Lesley, Norwich

"Thank you so much for my wonderful Chimney Sheep, it fits wonderfully and I can really see the suction draw as the tag swings about from the pull above!"

Carol

"The sheep arrived today and is up and in and doing its job. A lovely simple solution and well executed, well done. The use of natural and recyclable materials makes me very happy."

Sean

"Absolutely brilliant product; just put up chimney and it stops draughts. No pumping balloons each time it is inserted or removed. ****** Rating."

Wendy, Purbrook


"Just received the product. Installed within a couple of minutes and already the howling noise has stopped and the candles on the grate aren't flickering at all. Goodbye draught and hello snug sitting room. Great idea. Thanks!"

Wendy, Purbrook

"A fast delivery of product which has stopped the draft coming in from an unused chimney. But still giving us the option to use when wanted. Thank you and all the best with your business."

Mark, Dromore

"Hi Sally. I recently ordered your chimney sheep and I love it. We have an empty fireplace which was very draughty until I found your sheep! Not only has the draught been excluded but I now have a beautiful decoration hanging from its handle! You're a genius and I wish you all the best with your product!"

Debbie

"Really pleased with my chimney sheep, it's definitely made a big difference in the room. Much warmer now and it's really easy to put in & out. Love it. Got a couple of little hearts hanging from it which looks so much nicer than the empty grate too. And it stops all the soot coming down when it rains!"

Karin, Poole

"Sheep received and in position...great timing for the snowy weather, I am so happy to know there won't be any more breezes coming down our chimney! I have attached a photo of my son Leo inspecting the sheep and one of our chimney with sheep in position! I used the plastic balloons in my last place and the sheep was much easier to put in and a much snugger fit."

Karen, London

"Just a note to say how pleased we are with our new Chimney Sheep. We actually found your web address recommended by a reviewer of a chimney balloon product and are so glad we did. What a brilliantly simple but effective idea. Not only has it banished the palpable cold draught across our living room but the whole house seems warmer without that cold tang which used to pervade even upstairs. And natural and biodegradable too. Well Done!"

Paul

"Just to let you know that I am very happy with my Chimney Sheep and I am recommending it to all my friends."

Karen, London

"Many thanks for your advice and help. My sheep is a perfect fit and is keeping my lounge toasty! I'll definitely be recommending your site."

Jane, Guildford


We have two Chimney Sheeps of different sizes to suit each of our open fireplaces. It is only on special occasions or in really cold weather that we ever have both fires in operation so at least one Chimney Sheep is in place to prevent warm air disappearing up the chimney throughout the winter.

Ray Patterson, Cockermouth

"The service I have received from Sally at Chimney Sheep has been first class. I ordered the wrong size and was given a no quibble refund. Hoping the smaller one fits as this is such a brilliant invention."

Liz, East Molsey

"Very good product, it does the job it was made for."

Stephen, Mersyside

"I bought a sheep for my granddad. He usually has a board across the fireplace and when the wind blows this rattles. Since we fitted the Chimney Sheep the board doesn't rattle anymore and he says he notices a difference to the warmth in his room."

Lewis, Whitehaven

"Just wanted to say we got our chimney sheep today, only ordered it on Friday so thanks for the quick delivery. It's a perfect fit for the chimney and makes a big difference to the draft in the living room. Great product really glad I stumbled upon it, most of my searches turned up chimney balloons which I didn't really like the look of. The chimney sheep just seemed like a great idea and so it is :) Thanks."

Craig, Macclesfield

"Thank you so much for sending out our ‘sheep’ (oblong one )so promptly....we now have a snug and warmer lounge. We are definitely very pleased with our purchase."

Susie, Devizes

"Sally - I've now installed my chimney sheep. Apart from hoping to stop heat loss I wanted something which would catch debris from the chimney because when it rains heavily I get dirty splashmarks on the hearth and carpet, as well as dust etc. falling down. I've had to keep a fireguard in place which isn't ideal and now I don't have to, so I'm very pleased with the chimney sheep."

Margaret, Surrey

"Just received my chimney sheep and what a difference it has made. No longer do I have a cold, draughty living room. Will be recommending this great product."

Caroline


Many thanks for the chimney sheep as it has worked really well in stopping the down drafts and associated soot smell. I have a old very tall Edwardian house with the chimney on the north wall. On hot days, the hot air rising inside the house, caused the cold air in the chimney to fall, bringing with it the soot smell. Prior to the chimney sheep we used to have to light a candle on hot days, in the fireplace to prevent it happening.

David, Chesterfield

Just to let you know that the sheep is great! I fitted it on Saturday without problem. It was blowing a gale here, but there was not a whisper of a draught, nor any bits of stone, sand or other detritus that usually drifts down in that sort of weather. My hearth is pristine! Thank you for your help, I will be recommending you to my friends and neighbours.

Antoinette

I have just taken delivery of my Chimney Sheep - full marks for speedy delivery! It's now snugly settled in its new home. Many thanks. I remembered hearing about your product on Drive Time on Radio 2 ages ago and despite your catchy name I couldn't for the life of me remember what it was called. A bit of Googling tracked you down. So pleased to be able to buy a British-made and sourced product that is natural, sustainable, and FUN. Hope the business continues to grow.

Clare

Hi just a quick note to say thank you for the prompt delivery of my sheep! Fitted in seconds and looking forward to the reduction in draughts and noise. Will be recommending your product to others. Thanks again.

Sue

Very good product working very well keep up the good work.

Pat

I don't use Facebook but just wanted to let you know how pleased (and warm!) I am since fitting my 2 chimney sheep. My draughty Edwardian terrace nice and snug now. Hopefully I won't need to use the heating so much. Fast turnaround on my order too.

Laura

The sheep is installed. I thought it may be too big but with some adjustment its ok. It has been in place for a month now and I have to say the heating has hardly been on. The heat is staying in really well some evenings heating not coming on at all. The big test will be the colder months but its doing a brilliant job so far.

Sophie

Hi, Just a quick note to thank you for the chimney sheep. We live in a big old Victorian house, the lounge of which is now appreciably warmer and far less draughty since the application of the sheep! Brilliant product - highly recommended.

Liz


Many thanks for the speedy delivery of my Oblong Sheep 12 x 20. I shoved it up the chimney immediately on arrival, though it took some time to place it accurately without leaving gaps on the edges. However a hand up the chimney sorted that out. This morning the house is noticeably warmer as it has stopped the howling gale downdraft from the chimney. Other areas of the house feel warmer as well. I hope it's not just my wishful thinking.

Neil

We received the small round sheep last week and it seems to have made a difference in the dining room already - definitely not as chilly!!

Claire

Hi just like to let you know I have received my chimney sheep, and I am thrilled my lounge has never been so warm. I will recommend a chimney sheep to all of my friends. So easy to put in place. I used to breed Herdwick sheep and I loved them, so glad that someone has come up with such a good use for their wool. Many thanks coming home from work in the winter won’t be such a dread now as I can sit in a draft free room.

Mary

Received Chimney Sheep today. Well impressed with quality and presentation. We had a chimney balloon before which ended up, as they all do, in a shrivelled mass in the grate. Your simple idea of hanging an accessory on the handle is an effective reminder as well as being attractive. One advantage of the Chimney Sheep over balloons, that I see, is that when it rained you could hear the patter of drops on the balloon. I ended up putting a cloth over the balloon. Many thanks again.

Bill

Fantastic product, delivered within a working day. The chimney draughts are gone, instantly, and the house already feels warmer. Wish I had found your sheep sooner.

Steve

No questions, just a big thank you for getting this to me so quickly – I thought the order was still being processed. It arrived yesterday morning before I even got your email, was installed in two minutes, and is making an appreciable difference – no more freezing draughts down the chimney (quite something on a day like today). Now I just need to train the cats not to keep opening the door and letting in draughts that way!

Sarah

Really pleased with my chimney sheep. It arrived yesterday and fitted it last night. Really great product. Thanks for very prompt despatch.

Julia

Hello,I just want to let you know how pleased we are with the chimney sheep we purchased from you.Our living room is now noticeably warmer and draft free. We have central heating, but also we used to put the gas fire on to keep warm - not anymore. And bits of mortar have stopped falling into the room! Thank you!

Martin

Thank you, today I received the new chimney sheep! The whole team deserves a pat on the back and a thank you for such great service. Service like this is rare today!

Roger


Hi, we purchased ours a few weeks ago. I just wanted to let you know that it's working really well. We have an open fire every now and again, so it's really easy to take out and put back into the chimney. The wool is pliable enough to cover the opening. Overall, we're really happy with the product. Thanks.

Steven

The only question I have is - why I didn't find your product before!! Arrived this morning, thank you for the very prompt delivery, I have stuck it up behind the cowl of my fireplace which leads to a Victorian three storey chimney (with the sort of proportions that they used to send up small boys to clean) and it has made an instant difference, now more howling gales - yipee. Incidentally I love the sheep wool smell :-) but there again, I spin raw wool for fun so I'm probably just weird.

Fran

I just wanted to say how happy we are with our 'sheep'. We've only been using it a couple of days but have noticed a real difference already. With a 2 year old and a newborn we wanted something to stop drafts in our living room and this has really worked. Simple and effective. Thank you.

Mark

Many thanks for a super product, such a simple but most effective design. The metal heart dangling down looks perfect. I will be fitting it at my ex-daughter in law's house and she will be delighted with the heat savings. I can now remove the foam I stuffed up the chimney last week. Have been looking for something suitable for quite some time. Fortunately I came across your website. Chimney draughts are unfortunately ignored in most official papers dealing with energy conservation. I will also spread the news for you as I go along and hopefully it will generate the odd demand for this product. Best regards and good luck with your business. Our sheep has been put in place and not a moment too soon! The constant draught has been effectively dealt with and we are warm and cosy. Thoroughly recommended.

Penny

Hello Sally. Had meant to write sooner to say Thank You for the ‘re-sized’ sheep which is very comfortable in its new home. All working well and room is much warmer.

Jacquie

The Chimney Sheep is excellent. I bought and fit in my chimney in September and it has stopped the massive draughts coming down my chimney. My heating bills have also reduced! Such a simple idea, yet very effective! Thank you.

Vicky

Just to let you know that I received my order on Monday of this week. many thanks for your help. I will now order another chimney sheep for my other fire as I am so pleased with it.

Anita

Many thanks for the Chimney Sheep which arrived today. It fits perfectly and keeps out all the draughts, and it is easy to fit and remove.

Sam


"Hi Sally. Just to let you know my sheep is up my chimney! It took a bit of fiddling but nothing to do with the sheep - just my stupid chimney. The living room was actually lovely and cosy last night so noticing a difference already. Thanks for your help."

Dawn, Gallashiels

"Just to let you know that the Chimney Sheep arrived safely and has been in place for a few days. Marvellous! A noticeable drop in chilly drafts and an increase in temperature in the room. Many thanks!"

David, Oxford

"The Chimney Sheep is excellent thank you. We used to have such a lot of street noise through our chimney – that has now stopped."

Janet, Rochester

"Just to say thanks for sending the Sheep up to me. Our lounge is without doubt warmer as a result of plugging up our chimney when the fire is not in use. A very much worthwhile investment."

Tim, Strathclyde

"Sheep safely received half-an-hour ago. I was terrified I might have got the measurements wrong but it fits perfectly! Many thanks - am delighted with it. So good to support a local business there - and also the Lakeland Herdwicks (fond memories of my fell walking days). Best wishes for you and your business. I'll certainly recommend the sheep to anyone who needs something like that."

Stephen

"Hi Sally, I just wanted to say that our chimney sheep arrived - thank you so much !! It fits really well and the new warmth in our lounge is brilliant !! I will spread the word!! Kind regards"

Karen

"Hello Sally, I wanted to drop you an email thanking you for selling/providing such a great product. I have recently installed the chimney sheep and it has made a massive difference to keeping my lounge warm. Until I fitted the sheep, I had to resort to using an old piece of carpet to keep draught at bay. Now i have no draughts, and no horrible howling coming through. Excellent and outstanding product. Will definitely recommend to my neighbours. Kind regards."

Graham

"Just to let you know, the “sheep” arrived safely and seems to be doing a good job of keeping out the draughts. Thanks for a great service."

Carol

"Thank you, Sally for our "sheep". Been in a week now in this really windy and cold spell - it has made a huge difference to the comfort of our sittingroom. I was a bit worried as it was SO difficult to measure our chimney. However, despite some loose bricks, etc. the "sheep" seals the opening effectively. Good idea, great product. All credit to you. Best wishes."

Nigel


Hi Sally, received and installed...much warmer (bring on some more cold snaps!) Many thanks

Tony

Sheep arrived safely and it is now in place. Not the cleanest job as one had to go right into chimney and soot got dislodged but it is secure and appears to be working. Great weather to test it out as wind is howling! Fit seems good and I am really grateful for the piece of plumbing pipe you sent with it. Your problem solving skills are ace as you read the brief and found a way to resolve it. Thank you very much for a great idea as nothing else has come close to working in my particular chimney. If it had not been a chance encounter on Radio 2 I would still have been searching. Good luck with the business which deserves to succeed

Agnes

Thanks Sally -the sheep arrived today and is now in situ and warming up our sitting room! Many thanks for a really great product.

Wendy

Thanks for sending my new sheep which arrived today and is now firmly in place. I have to say that I found your prompt and efficient service to be excellent baaa none.

John

...it is brilliant, the difference in the draught it stops is really quite amazing.

Steve

...it is fab - so very chuffed and wanted you to know :) Thanks again

Sally

Hello Sally,
You may remember my order for a sheep to be fitted vertically into the front of the fireplace.
It took a bit of getting used to but you will be pleased to know that it now works OK. Our lounge now gets up to 2 degrees C higher than it used to when the sheep is in use, so is much warmer now. We fit it every morning and then remove it in the evening before lighting the fire.
It will also be useful in the summer when we stop having the fire of an evening. So thank you for a very useful product.
Best wishes

Martin

Thank you very much for sending the replacement Chimney Sheep. It fits beautifully and thank you for all your help.

Anne, Kent

Hello Sally
Just wanted to say how pleased I am with my Chimney Sheep.
Regards

Fiona

Hi Sally
Thank you very much for your help - the bespoke one is just perfect! Thank you for refunding the previous order so promptly.

Anna


Hi Chimney sheep, just to let you know i thought the product was a great idea and clever use of 'raw' Herdwick wool, which is pretty much valueless these days. Also I found the web site was really well designed and so simple to use. Even the FAQ were questions I wanted answered!
Hope the venture takes off for you
Well-done and best wishes :)

Steve

Dear Sally
Have received our Chimney Sheep and it fits perfectly, excellent product, brilliant idea. Will spread the word. Thank you.

R & M

Just to let you know the sheep arrived and has now been in place for a few weeks. The foul windy weather has been a great way of testing its effectiveness, and I have to say, it's been fantastic. Our sitting room is so much warmer. Wish I'd found the sheep earlier!

We have two chimneys in the house, it’s a very old house, the draughtiest chimney is now fitted with its snuggly sheep (Eric) and it really is amazing the difference it makes. We are very very pleased with Eric in our sitting room, which is now so warm, and cosy we may not even have to light the fire!!!!!!

Thank you very much for your prompt attention to my order, and the extra extension, which I did need. I now have a sheep up my chimney and would recommend them to anyone. Again I thank you.

I'm so pleased with my recent order. Even with the February gales and driving rain, the chimneys have been draught-free and our rooms much warmer. A brilliant idea that really works: I shall spread the word.

I bought your product a few weeks ago and can't believe the difference in temperature in the house. I know the winter hasn't been particularly cold this year, but we have had some very windy days and the chimney sheep seems to have eliminated all the draughts normally associated with them. The increased heat is particularly noticeable early in the morning, where in the past all the heat would have been lost up the chimney. I wish I had got one year ago, it would have saved me a fortune.
Thank you.

Well, thank you very much for designing such a brilliant product. We bought our chimney sheep a few days ago and I've already noticed the difference - no longer a draughty room but a snug cosy room to sit in.
A brilliant idea, and it's fantastic that you're using local wool. Win-win all round.
Good luck for the future - with this product you deserve to go far.

Hi, just to say how great the chimney sheep is!
We cannot believe how it has eliminated the howling draught that used to rush between our double doors, forcing them open at times.
We feel snug and cosy in our living room and cannot help but get up now and again to check the complete absence of draught - it is a marvel!
