Reindeer Hides

Why Buy A-Grade Reindeer Hides?

Like with many things in life, with Reindeer Hides, you get what you pay for. Often people tell us how cheaply they bought theirs on a holiday in Norway or at a Christmas Market in London. However, they usually follow that up with "and it sheds like mad".

Unfortunately, you have to be really careful where you buy your reindeer hide from. They must be harvested in the winter, they must be salted and tanned correctly and they must be stored appropriately too. When a reindeer hide is A-Grade - it meets all of these criteria. 

Reindeer hair is hollow and therefore more delicate than sheepskin or cowhides. Although they look like they are just perfect for the floor in front of a roaring fire, they really aren't able to cope with the intense heat and this will quickly dry out your reindeer. They have a similar reaction to underfloor heating or being left in a conservatory. We recommend you use your Reindeer Hide for decorative purposes, as a throw or wall covering. You can use them as a rug in very low traffic areas too, however, be mindful that some hair will perhaps loosen underfoot overtime. 

We recommend giving your reindeer hide a very light misting once every six months to help keep the leather moist and prevent drying out. Naturally, they are not used to our central heating and this just helps maintain them. Turn them over so the leather is facing upwards and just with water, lightly mist the back. Be careful not to soak the leather, remember a little will go along way. Cleaning is not a daunting task. Simply shaking it is sufficient. An occasional vacuuming set on a low setting and done occasionally would also so.

For piece of mind, we offer a years guarantee on all our reindeer; so if they do begin to shed, we will happily accept the hide back and replace it with another of your choice. If you have any further questions or wish to know more about Reindeer hides, please feel free to drop us an email or call

Sheepskins, Top Ten Facts

Top Ten Facts why Sheepskins make you happy

Top ten benefits to owning a Burrow & Hide Sheepskin

  1. Sheepskins Regulate Temperature: they’ll never make you too hot or let you get cold. This makes them perfect for chair throws, seat covers and rugs.

  2. Sheepskins are ideal for babies. They not only enjoy the texture of the rug, but they are perfect to line their cot or pram with. As a natural organically tanned product, they are allergy free to suit every child. 

  3. Sheepskins Naturally Resist: snags, tears, wrinkles, soiling and pilling.

  4. Sheepskins resist dirt, bacteria and provides a self-cleaning quality when hung in fresh air.

  5. Sheepskins are washable – they can be hand or gently machine-washed. Generally, a good shake and brush will restore the sheepskin. However, you can wash them if needed. Just make sure you dry them in the shade, without a direct heat source. When damp, brush the hair, to ensure it dries nicely fluffy.

  6. Sheepskins drape beautifully and over time, they will never lose their shape or snag.

  7. Sheepskins are: water resistant, static-free, flame resistant, and wind proof. 

  8. Sheepskins are: a natural moisturiser due to the high content of lanolin in the wool. 

  9. Sheepskin wool does not shed. 

  10.  Naturally Orthopaedic; Nothing soothes the body and reduces body fatigue like sheepskin. Sheepskin’s naturally crimped fibres form a springy, cushioned support that cradles your body, relieving pressure points, muscle aches and pain.
