We import and stock a nice selection of Icelandic sheepskins in our warehouse in upstate New York.  With a wool length of approximately 6” to 8”, the long wool sheepskins make ideal rugs and furniture coverings. Native Americans use the white sheepskins for ankle dressings and the black and brown ones are used for buffalo headdresses. The hair is so long that it does not go in one direction like a dog or cat's fur, but rather it falls in every direction.  This is not a hollow hair, so it doesn't break or shed.

These Icelandic sheepskins are Eco-tanned without the use of heavy metals.  The exact formulation is a trade-secret but the tanning meets European Union regulations for an environmentally friendly tanning process.

See the Gallery for select Icelandic sheepskins available for sale. 

We usually have more in stock than are shown in the gallery. Please call for availability.

A Note on Colours

The white skins are "creamy white."  The natural color of the skins often has a yellowish hue to the color.  As the skins have not been bleached, they often have varying degrees of "creaminess." 

The piebald skins vary in patterns quite a bit and may be black and white, brown and white, black and brown and white, etc.  They may also have spots in the middle or different coloration along the edges.

The brown and gray skins come in various shades.  If you are looking for darker brown or light brown or darker gray or lighter gray, please let us know so we can select a skin for you.  

Supplies vary over time so please call to confirm the availability of specific styles or colors.

Washing Instructions for Icelandic Sheepskins

Do not dry clean the skins as the dry cleaning process will remove the natural oils from the skin.  You can spot clean the hair side with Eucalan™ Wool Wash.  Do not soak the hide side.  You can order the Eucalan™ Wool Wash from our warehouse in New York.
