Skyeskyns

Projects

New project

Skyeskyns, manufacturers and suppliers of finest quality sheepskins, is a family business established on the Isle of Skye in 1983.  Manufacturing takes place in a modest workshop using original tanning equipment, much of which has been sourced from tanneries which ceased operation throughout the UK.

These skins are then transformed into individually unique and durable pieces. The process is long, demanding and time consuming, requiring craftsmanship of the highest order. A handmade, natural, authentic Scottish item is the outcome – one which Skyeskyns takes great pride in producing.

Really friendly at both the Portree and Waternish outlets. Loads of rugs and clothing to choose from. Brilliant best way to buy the best local goods. Love it

We had a brilliant afternoon here. The tour is well worth the money. We learnt so much about this heritage craft and came away with a gorgeous sheepskin rug that will have pride of place at home.

Very disappointed with the two rugs purchased as they are nothing like the photo on the website. The website shows a lovely skin with thick wool which is long and textured. The wool on my rugs is an inch long if it's lucky and looks heat damaged around the edges. Update. The company got in touch shortly after I posted my review, apologised and gave a full refund so I have increased to 4 stars.
