Welcome to the Chimney Sheep™ website! If you're here you are probably aware of the colossal amount of heat that is lost up the chimney flue when the fire is out and the central heating is on. Chimneys are cleverly designed to draw air up and out of a building. The amount of warm air that is lost varies depending on the height of the chimney, the temperature inside and the temperature outside.
Basically, you can spend a fortune insulating your loft, walls, installing double glazing, putting in radiator reflectors and so on, but if you've got a square foot gap designed to suck air out of a building then you'll lose all that lovely expensive warm air out of a room within an hour.

The Chimney Sheep™ draught excluder for chimneys comes with its own dangle, and it is very important that this is visible at the top of the fireplace so no-one forgets it is there and lights a fire. There are also a range of dangles that can be hung from the handle to decorate your fireplace and make it look more cheerful when the fire is out. If you want to light the fire the Chimney Sheep™ is easily removed – pop it in a gorgeous wrap to hang from the mantelpiece or put it in a bag in the cupboard, then push it back in when the fire is completely out.
- Wool is a naturally occurring, sustainable product.
- It can be washed several times, but at the end of its life is compostable.
- The handle is made out of recycled plastic, and at the end of its life can be recycled again.
