I bought two reindeer skins (online) as a christmas present and they are shedding very badly already. I emailed the company to ask if this was normal and have received no response. Sorry but in my mind that is not good customer service.

Bought a sheepskin (Herdwick) from this shop the other day. Absolutely love it !! Looks great on a leather sofa. This small store is packed full of sheepskins and more. Helpful service, will definitely be back on my next trip to the Lake District.
