Herdwick sheep are a breed of domestic sheep that are native to the Lake District in the North West of England. They are one of the oldest breeds in the UK, and their history can be traced back to Viking times. The name "Herdwick" comes from the Old Norse word "herdvyck," which means "sheep pasture."

Herdwick sheep were traditionally kept for their meat and wool, and were an important part of the local economy in the Lake District. The breed's hardiness and ability to thrive in the challenging upland environment made them well-suited to the area, and they became an important part of the local farming culture.

In recent years, however, the Herdwick sheep breed has faced a decline in popularity and numbers. This is due in part to changes in farming practices and the rise of more commercially viable sheep breeds. As a result, Herdwick sheep have become a rare breed, and efforts are being made to preserve their genetic heritage and ensure their long-term survival.

By purchasing sheepskins made from the Herdwick sheep breed, you support support the farmers who are working to preserve the breed, which in turn helps to maintain the economic viability of the breed. By supporting the sustainable use of Herdwick sheep products, we can help to ensure that this unique and valuable breed continues to thrive for generations to come.
