About

Skyeskyns is the sole exhibition sheepskin tannery in Scotland as well as manufacturers and suppliers of sheepskins since 1983.

Lamb/sheepskins have always been a by-product of farming in Britain, where we have the highest standards of animal welfare. Skyeskyns works closely with our suppliers to ensure that all our skins are ethically sourced from local abattoirs, stopping them from being exported and putting money back into the local economy.

All our raw skins are carefully selected to produce the most beautiful and durable fleeces, rugs and throws. Passionate about working with British farmers and manufacturers, all but a very few products in our range are made in the UK. We are proud to source the skins used in our tannery in Scotland.

We produce our own range of sustainable tree-bark tanned sheepskins from Scottish breeds, made here on Skye from our own unique recipe. We offer a range of sheepskin rugs, throws and accessories either made onsite or in Devon.

We also sell a range of Scottish knitwear and leather and tweed goods, manufactured in the British Isles.

Skyeskyns is committed to preserving tanning skills and opens its tannery for free guided tours all year round, introducing the general public to the story of leather, from sheep to showroom.
