Why is it useful to attach a dangle to a Chimney Sheep®?
Although each of our Chimney Sheep® comes with a safety tag attached to the handle, our fairtrade red metal heart dangle will add an extra bit of ‘wow’ to your fireplace.
They also act as an extra reminder that there is a draught excluder in your chimney. This is really important because although Chimney Sheep® are fire retardant (and will give off a rather poignant scent to alert you if it is accidentally lit) if you wish to light your fire, you must ALWAYS remove your Chimney Sheep®.
The person who lights the fire, will not necessarily be the same person that inserted the Chimney Sheep® draught excluder, so a visible dangle acts as a great reminder that there is a Chimney Sheep® and will eliminate any risk of your sheep getting a little hot and bothered!
How do I attach this red metal heart dangle to my Chimney Sheep®?
To add it to your Chimney Sheep®, undo the chain on the safety dangle that says ‘don’t ewe forget about me’ (all our Chimney Sheep® come with these), thread it through the small hanging loop at the back of the dangle and re-fix it onto the Chimney Sheep® handle. Alternatively, un-knot the organic jute string and tie this around the handle.
