I bought two reindeer skins (online) as a christmas present and they are shedding very badly already. I emailed the company to ask if this was normal and have received no response. Sorry but in my mind that is not good customer service.

Bought a sheepskin (Herdwick) from this shop the other day. Absolutely love it !! Looks great on a leather sofa. This small store is packed full of sheepskins and more. Helpful service, will definitely be back on my next trip to the Lake District.

Although tucked away off the main road, this small store has a great range of sheepskins etc. It is packed high with products and the store assistant was ready with information and good advice. Quality service.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I placed an order on June 6th for a small piece of reindeer skin. You claimed that the first one got lost in the post, and that you sent another one. I have not received either. You are also not responding to emails or phone calls, so I have no option but to reclaim money through Mastercard. I have already placed a complaint with SagePay. From the other reviews, I would assume that you are in financial difficulties but would be happy to be proved wrong. I would welcome your comments.
