Chimney Sheep™: stops cold chimney draughts

How much heat are you losing up your chimney? Chimneys are cleverly designed to draw air up and out of a building. If you’ve got the central heating on and the fire isn’t lit, all your precious warm air will disappear up the flue within an hour. Just put your hand in the flue and you’ll be astonished by how strong the chimney draught is. This escaping air needs to be replaced, so cold air is pulled in from under doors and round windows, creating the cold draughts we feel. Now you can stop chimney draughts and reduce chimney heat loss with a Chimney Sheep™! The Chimney Sheep™ is a thick layer of felted wool on a handle that plugs the gap just above the fireplace preventing warm air from escaping up the chimney and stopping cold air from coming down the chimney.

Our Chimney Draught Excluder is made from 100% Herdwick wool

Herdwicks are hardy mountain sheep with thick wiry wool that keeps them warm all winter long. The wool has the perfect combination of stiffness to hold itself in place in the chimney throat and compressibility to fit a range of shapes and sizes. Just choose a Chimney Sheep™ that is an inch or two larger than the chimney opening, and fit it in the chimney to keep you snug and warm. If you want to light the fire, take it out, pop it in a Chimney Sheep™ wrap or plastic bag, and when the chimney is completely cold you can put it back in again. The fireplace draught excluder is very robust and can be re-used hundreds of times. It will last for years and will save 4% of household heat loss – just think how much money you’ll save over the years!
