Just a quick email to say my rug from Gilmore arrived today which was very quick as I only placed my order on Sunday.
I don’t normally write such emails but wanted to say how very pleased I am with my rug. It is even better than the picture and is very soft to the touch. The natural shades of the fleece fit perfectly with my decor.
I have been considering a sheepskin rug for some time but didn’t like the idea of the ‘skin’. I saw an article about your rugs in Country Living magazine and went straight on line. What a brilliant idea to felt the fleece. Please keep up your good work and I wish you every success in the future.
I would like to thank you for the lovely living rug that arrived this morning, I was so surprised as I only ordered it yesterday!!
I read your article in The Country Living magazine and was inspired, I went straight onto the website to see the many different items, I loved all the different colours of the fleeces of your character full sheep
When I saw there where only two left to select from to buy, I knew I had to move fast!
I decided on Mona as her fleece was the right size and colour to fit over my foot stool
When I was unpacking it this morning, my husband came into the room with the usual male comment "what you been buying now!" But when it was laid over the stool he agreed how wonderful it looked. Phew!!
Thank you again for your brilliant article and your lovely products and a special thank you to Mona for the fleece she supplied

I bought a rug, grown by Giles, a wonderful Gotland sheep from The Living Rug company. The rug is gorgeous, the photo online was identical in colour to the real thing. The quality is superb, it's soft and so tactile and a joy to look at. The fleece is backed onto felt, which has been done by hand, I appreciate the rug all the more for it.
Just wanted to say thank you for my recent purchase (Stefan rug). It's such wonderful quality and even more gorgeous than in the photos - plus it was posted incredibly quickly and packaged beautifully. I'm already eyeing up others...they could become an addiction! Very best wishes for the future - it's so great that you're doing this for the sheep, for the environment (and for your customers, obviously!).

I'm so thrilled with my "Ian" rug ... I love the look of it, the feel of it and even the smell of it! Thank you for the little tour yesterday, that was so interesting ... though Ian's customer-focus skills could use a little improvement, as the best view of him was his fluffy bottom disappearing into the fog! A wonderful product, story and ethics. I'd give six stars if I could.
I recently contacted The Living Rug Company asking whether or not it would be possible for them to turn one my recently shorn sheep, Doris' fleece into a rug. There was no guarantee the fleece would felt, however I was delighted The Living Rug Company took a chance and agreed to have a go. Doris is one of a large hill flock residing on the Brecon Beacons, bred by myself.
From start to finish, the customer service I have received has been second to none.
On receiving the rug, I was blown away by the beautiful packaging, echoing the 'handmade with love' feel to my whole experience. The end result is quite simply stunning. To say I am over the moon is an understatement; not even a photograph can truly capture the exquisite craftsmanship and raw, rustic charm of this bespoke piece.
As I have said, Doris is one of a hill flock and endures all sorts of Welsh weather, so I can only imagine what the fleeces are like from the pet sheep at The Living Rug Company - who may be just a little bit more pampered!
I'm already looking forward to another rug from Doris next year. What a fabulous company!
