The Leicester Longwool offers the luxurious softness and curliness of
a Tibetan Lambskin or Gotland fleece but is bigger and more durable
than the Tibetan and is more neutral in colour than our Gotlands.

heritage of the Leicester Longwool can be traced back over 200 years to
agricultural pioneer Robert Bakewell. This native breed is so rare, we
are the only sheepskin retailer currently selling its fleeces!

This sheepskin is dense, long and lustrous with an even texture as the curly locks hang individually.

A great choice if you want a luxurious and distinctive fleece, in a neutral colour that fits with a range of interiors.

One size
100-120cm x 60-70cm (3’ 7”-3′11″ x 1' 11"-2’ 4”)

The products arrived and were better than I had expected. The shipping to the NYC was fast. Because of the superior product and service I am currently shopping for more products from this very fabulous sheepskin company.
