“Unbelievable quality product made with the passion of a true Irishman!

As we head into an uncertain winter of high fuel prices and energy uncertainty why not invest now in a cosy Irish sheepskin rug or luxury throw or maybe a pair of sheepskin slippers or a sheepskin gilet. These are also investment pieces renowned for their durability, classic styling and will look great for years to come. The sheepskin aviator jacket has been in fashion since the 1930’s and is one of our most popular fashion items!


The Advantages of Sheepskin

Sheepskin as a material has many advantages. As well as being natural and durable it is also fully biodegradable at the end of life. “We are proud users of a by-product of the meat industry which would otherwise end up in landfill”, says Derek McCarthy.

Sheepskin has a natural thermostat, allowing the wearer to regulate their temperature naturally and making it very comfortable to wear. Babies especially love to sleep on a sheepskin throw or buggy liner.


"Purchased a Shearling Jacket from Derek. As soon as it arrived I had to give him a call - the quality is out-of-this-world. Warm, soft and clearly very durable."
