Moorcraft Sheepskin family business in Somerset

About Us

We are a small family business run by Ashley, Jan and their daughter Adriana. We pride ourselves on producing high quality sheepskin products.

Our workshop is situated on the Somerset levels with a view towards Glastonbury Tor.

We have been involved in the Sheepskin and Leather industry for over 50 years, and have seen many changes along the way! On leaving school we were locally trained at the Clarks Shoe Factory at Street in Somerset. It was here Jan realised making shoes from leather was a very interesting and rewarding job.

It then progressed to Ashley hand cutting and Jan making Sheepskin garments shortly after.

It is approximately 35 years since we decided to start our own manufacturing business. We now only make for our retail shop in Cheddar Gorge, entering into our 15th year.

Moorcraft Sheepskin Shop is situated in the heart of Cheddar Gorge behind the Mill Stream. This is a truly beautiful location, making it a special day out for all the family to enjoy.
