Herdwick octo

By PJ on 7 Jul 2019

Ordered the Octo to use both on the bed and sofas, it was delivered on time, exactly as we discussed and it is absolutely superb ! It's on a Loaf sofa and it has transformed it. Delighted with the purchase and will probably have to order another one at some point. Don't hesitate, get one ordered.

Beautiful new Herdy rug

By Lesley Crinson on 25 May 2019

I ordered a sexto Herdwick fleece rug for my new garden room as I felt the wood floor needed softening a little. Lucy emailed a choice of two and helped me withe size and the rug was delivered to me in less than a week. It is absolutely beautiful and has transformed the room. It is worth every penny and I really have never seen anything else that would look as good . Can't recommend the product or the company more highly

Beautiful Herdwick bed throw

By Victoria on 13 Jan 2019

I'm really delighted with the Herdwick fleece I ordered, it arrived very quickly, is absolutely beautiful and looks fantastic on the bed.

Herdy Breakfast Baa

By Lisa Whitehead on 4 Jan 2019

After receiving some photo’s from Lucy to check the colours as I wanted to include some grey tones, I decided on two medium Herdwick fleeces as seat padding for our ‘L’ shaped wooden built in bench seating in the breakfast room. I had a picture in my mind as to what they would look like and they look even better than expected, plus they are lovely and thick so will be very comfortable to sit on whilst I enjoy my breakfast and read the paper at the weekend! Great product with personal and prompt service. Thanks Lucy!

Simply sumptuous

By Denise Irwin on 13 Dec 2018

My Herdwick rug is soft, grey and simply sumptuous. Lucy could not have been more helpful and I had trouble choosing from the amazing rugs available. I received it within 24 hours of ordering. Fantastic, reliable and helpful company.

Scandi-Luxe

By Sara on 4 Dec 2018

Just received my extra large Herdwick sheepskin. It adds a touch of Scandi-luxe to my modern house although my daughter thinks it looks like her Ragdoll cat has been skinned! Lucy gave me a choice of 3 as I wanted a dark one and I was really happy with my choice and the service. Can't recommend highly enough.

Beautiful Herdwick fleeces

By Coleman on 30 Nov 2018

Just unboxed our two double Herdwick fleeces – they look and feel amazing laid out by our bedsides! This business is simply great. Informative and well-constructed pre-sales info on the website, as well as a bit of after-sales too – I just found the handy care guide. Lucy offers a super-responsive, personal consultation service, finding rugs that fit our brief almost immediately. Production was insanely quick and delivery was made to suit me. Most importantly, the quality of the products is the best I've seen anywhere. Can't recommend highly enough.

Another ecstatic herdy buyer :)

By Mel Bonney-Kane on 21 Nov 2018

I contacted Lucy on Monday about a herdy rug to replace my rather tired and ancient sheepskin in front of my fire. Lucy sent me some photos in order that I could choose the two for my double, and the finished rug arrived this morning (Wednesday) at 9.45!! What an absolutely fantastic service, and the rug is utterly gorgeous and I'm delighted with it. Thank you so much

Gorgeous herdwick sheepskin

By JoAnn Sykes on 15 Nov 2018

I have just received my medium herdwick sheepskin! I absolutely love it! Thanks to Lucy for providing 4 photos to choose from. It’s even nicer than it looked on the photo. Delivery was excellent with a 1 hour slot sent on the morning of delivery. I will definitely be buying more!!! Thank you Lucy, what a great company!

Very Happy Herdy

By Annie Lomas on 19 Oct 2018

The Herdwick sheepskin rug that I recently received from The Fabulous Fleece Company is stunning; the photo that Lucy provided simply doesn't do it justice. Lucy provided a choice of four fleeces in the size I wished to purchase (all of which were equally beautiful - such a hard choice!) and I received it the next day. Fabulous customer service from The Fabulous Fleece Company! Thank you again, Lucy!

Excellent product, excellent service

By Pete Armstrong on 27 Sep 2018

I have just received one double and one XL Herdwick Fleece. I asked that, if possible the two rugs be as similar as possible since they reside very close to each other. Despite the difficulty on matching such unique and variable items, Lucy has achieved what I needed. The rugs are superb! The service was excellent - delivered within a couple of days (extra time to sew the double), and within a given 1 hour slot.

Double light Herdwick

By GW on 13 Sep 2018

Lucy is a pleasure to deal with. She emailed true to life photo's so we knew exactly what we were getting. Our beautiful double light Herdwick arrived very quickly and we are delighted with it's quality.

Herdwick rug

By Judith on 21 Aug 2018

Beautiful luxurious rug with amazingly subtle colours - so pleased with it. Lucy listened to what I wanted and sent photos to help me choose the right colour. Very prompt service - highly recommended.

Absolutely thrilled!

By Lindie on 20 Aug 2018

We bought a quad Herdwick, and it was so gorgeous, we had a single, too! With the help of Lucy’s expert advice, we chose an Icelandic as a throw. Absolutely thrilled with the service and quick delivery. You won’t be disappointed!

Thrilled

By Katharine We on 15 Aug 2018

Overjoyed with my Octo Herdwick Fleece, It is simply gorgeous. Lucy was amazing in every way and I can't wait to order another! So glad I found her web site.

Thank You

By Ange Mullins on 6 Jun 2018

Lovely sheepskin! Im extremely happy with it, thank you for a great purchase.

Perfect

By Holly on 24 Apr 2018

One of a pair of rugs from my first order with the company. Lucy is friendly, helpful and more than willing to send photographs of the fleeces that meet your requirements. The ideal way to pick out your perfect rug! My Herdwick fleece in particular is super soft, thick, fluffy and a stunning colour; I couldn't be more pleased with it. Delivery was swift, and the rugs are fabulous. Highly recommended - I know I will certainly be placing another order.

Super Product, Superior Customer Service

By Andrew Veveiros on 13 Apr 2018

Super product with superior customer service. We are delighted with our sheepskin and want to thank Lucy for all her time and patience in helping us select the one for us! We will definitely be purchasing more.

A BIG THANK you

By leila on 22 Mar 2018

Your customer service is brilliant and efficient. You have a wonderful personable manner that would make buying through the website enjoyable and reassuring. A BIG THANK you. I would highly recommend you.

Beautiful Herdwick Rug

By Linda Charie on 8 Mar 2018

I managed to buy the last Herdwick Large rug that Lucy had in stock and I wanted to try and match it to three others I bought two years ago. Well it is beautiful, similar colouring but even though all four are slightly different they match wonderfully and the quality is amazing. Lucy and her team are great, a pleasure to buy from, their delivery is superb, customer service good. Lets hope they go from strength tot strength.

A big thanks

By Glenn Sawyer on 7 Jan 2018

There is a major problem with The Fabulous Fleece Company website - it has far too many beautiful fleeces to choose from! so many in fact that I needed help from Lucy in choosing the perfect one. This was to be a birthday present for my wife and it needed to be super soft, supple, tactile and definitely irresistible and I confirm that it is all of those. It looks great anywhere that my wife puts it - and strangely it seems to follow her from room to room - or perhaps that's my daughter trying to sneak it into her bedroom - she also loves it. Thank you Lucy for helping me choose the perfect gift.

Fabulous Herdy

By Faye on 3 Dec 2017

Excellent service from the first enquiry to the swift delivery. The fleece is excellent, just what i was looking for! Lucy always replied promptly to my queries and with photos of fleece options to make sure the perfect rug was found. Thank you!

Herdwick rug

By Susan Davies on 15 Nov 2017

I had dreadful trouble sourcing a Herdwick fleece in my home County of Cumbria, (would you believe!) but Fab Fleece came up trumps. I was looking for a much larger than average fleece and Lucy quickly found one that was just the job. It arrived quickly and in pristine condition. I am delighted with it.

What a beautiful Fleece

By Carole on 3 Nov 2017

I have Just received my extra large Herdwick Sheepskin Rug and I am thrilled with it. The colours are just perfect with my room and the quality of the rug is superb. Lucy was very helpful and sent me pictures of 3 rugs to choose from, which made it easy for me decide on which one would look the best. I can only say that I wouldn't hesitate to buy another fleece from her.

Excellent

By Angela on 24 Oct 2017

Excellent service and lovely cosy fleece throw . Can’t wait to sit on the sofa . Lucy remains informative and helpful with advice. I would recommend and purchase again without a second thought.

By Judith on 14 Sep 2017

Simply beautiful

By Stephen Scoulding on 16 Aug 2017

Simply a beautiful thing. I have been looking for a really nice sheepskin for years and now I have one. Told Lucy what I was looking for, she sent me some images. Picked the fleece I liked. Paid - two days later it's here. First class in every way. Thanks.

Beautiful Herdwick Sheepskins

By Charlotte on 3 Nov 2016

I recently bought 4 Herdwick sheepskins and I am so pleased them. Each one is different in the colours, patterns and length of fleece but they all go really well together. I love the multi-toned shading and the natural earthy colours of the sheepskins, they look fab on our brown leather sofa. They are amazingly warm and comfy and arrived in perfect condition. Lucy was great to work with and sent me photos to choose from and posted the items very quickly. Many thanks for such great quality products and service

Wonderful service. Beautiful fleece!!

By Christine Wham on 5 Oct 2016

My double Herwick fleece has just arrived and is absolutely superb!!! Lucy was so so helpful in showing me various photos of sizes and shades so I could chose what would suit my room best. I could not recommend this company more highly. Have no hesitation if you want one of their fleeces. It was also sent the next day at a time convenient for me.

I am in love!

By Deborah Wood on 5 Oct 2016

Love love love my rare breed, triple sized rug. Absolutely stunning, rich and luxurious and totally makes the room. Have had so many compliments, and enquiries as to where I got it. Cannot thank Lucy enough for all her time an effort to get me exactly what I was looking for, she definitely went the extra mile, and was a pleasure to deal with.

Fabulous indeed!

By caroline shotton on 4 Oct 2016

I just wanted to say a very big 'thank you' to all at the FFC for my beautiful extra large Herdy sheepskin. It was dispatched in super quick time, and the excellent range of delivery options enabled me to collect from a local collection point when I realised I would not be at home. Easy! The quality and fluffiness of the sheepskin exceeded my expectations (always nice), and the colours are just stunning. Fab customer service, I can't recommend you highly enough.

Gorgeous and distinctive.

By Jennie Poyser on 25 Jul 2014

I recently bought two Herdwick Fleeces and am over the moon with them. They are both really beautiful, thick multi toned fleeces and look stunning in our bedroom. I was unsure what to buy initially and it was due to Lucy's fab customer service, which went above and beyond - including photos, phone calls and several emails, which helped me with my purchase. The Fabulous Fleece company really care about their customers which is lovely. I will definitely be back for more, its great to be able to get top products and also support such a lovely company. Highly recommended.
