In older houses, door draughts are an ongoing issue. Even in a new home, you might have removed a carpet to reveal a wooden floor but there is now a gap between the door and the floor. This is where Chimney Sheep’s door draught excluder comes into its own.
Filled with felted wool off-cuts from our range of chimney draught excluders, the 100cm x 30cm door draught excluder cushions are not only larger than standard door draught stoppers, they are also more robust. The weighted design allows the cushions to stay firmly in place, making them a highly practical and essential door draught seal as well as a fashionable accessory to have in your home. What’s more? Not only will Chimney Sheep’s elegant looking door draught excluders banish the cold from beneath your doors, they can also be used on window sills to stop cold draughts.
Investing in a Chimney Sheep door draught excluder has been compared to sand-bagging your door against the cold – and we think that this is the perfect way to describe it!
Can I wash my door draught excluder?
Yes. The range of high quality door draught excluders have removable covers that can be detached and dry-cleaned. They are a pillow slip style design so there are no zips or buttons to worry about.
Our door draught excluders are robust on the inside, gorgeous on the outside. They comprise an “inner” filled with offcuts of felted sheep wool. This gives it some weight and means it sits firmly on the floor blocking draughts from the door. The “outer” is made of gorgeous Italian made fabric. The cover is removable so it can be dry-cleaned if it picks up dirt from the floor. It’s made of pillow-slip design so it slips on and off easily without worrying about fastenings.
This design is a gorgeous paisley design in muted shades of green and cream. It will confidently blend with a range of colour schemes.
What is the door draught excluder made of?
We end up with off-cuts from the roll of felt that we use for the Chimney Sheeps. These off-cuts are chopped into smaller pieces and used to fill our door draught excluders. This makes them heavier than most standard door draught excluders, which means they sit well on the floor and do a good job of blocking draughts.Where does the wool come from?
We buy the wool directly from farms in the Lake District. Specifically, we get wool from the Lorton Valley, Buttermere, Ennerdale and Eskdale.
What are the benefits of wool?
Wool is a natural product. Sheep spend their lives grazing and growing wool. This is clipped in the summer when it’s hot (yes, it even gets hot in the Lake District in July!). Then it all grows back in time to keep them warm in the winter. The wool is a natural insulator. It also has remarkable properties which means it can absorb high volatile compounds (VOC’s) such as formaldehyde. Studies have shown that VOC’s bind permanently to the wool fibre, so they absorb it and never release it. Wool has been used to clean up environments where there are high levels of VOC’s. Having wool around your home will make it a cleaner, better environment.
