The materialsOur Tussock sheepskins are ethically sourced from the Corriedale breed in New Zealand. We’ve chosen this breed for their dense, curly wool which, once cut, has a tactile texture that’s similar to a bouclé fabric. The short woollen hairs are also more resistant to spills and are easier to keep clean.
The colourTo give the sheepskin its pearly cream colour, it goes through a process called tanning. The wool is soaked in a solution made from lots of natural ingredients such as salt, water and sawdust, then a gentle acid, like vinegar, is applied to activate the process.
Design detailThe cover fits around the cream-coloured bottle snugly with a concealed zip that runs along the back from top to bottom – this means that taking the bottle out when you need to clean the woollen layer couldn’t be simpler.
Doing the right thingOur Tussock hot water bottles are made with sheepskin and leather which are 100% natural, biodegradable and long lasting, and each material used is a by-product which means that it doesn’t go to waste. When choosing the material for the rubber bottle, our supplier has also used a naturally produced, renewable alternative.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
The sheepskin covering of this hot water bottle is dry clean only and, to prevent the wool colour from fading, it should not be exposed to direct sunlight. When adding hot water to the bottle, it should be no more than 70% full. We also have care instructions for removing different types of stains and marks from your sheepskin should they occur – for more information on this, please contact our customer experience team who will be happy to help.
