THE TOUGHEST SHEEP COVER ON EARTH
That is a bold statement but my customers have expressed that sentiment to me over and over again. I know of Sheep Suits™ that are more than 6 years old and I understand that they are still in good condition. If you are tired of patching the patches that are already on your covers then maybe you should give Sheep Suits a try. It is a small investment for the peace of mind that they can give you; knowing that you won’t go out to feed tomorrow morning and find your prize winning ewe standing on her cover . . . and then having to catch her to put another patched up cover on the best fleece in your flock.
Australian Wool Innovation Ltd. published a study in March 2003 titled: Economic Viability of Sheep Coats for Wool Production. Here are a few of the conclusions:
Sheep Suits™ Sheep Covers can do this for your flock. Word of mouth advertising from handspinners raving about your clean wool cannot be purchased at any price. Are you ready to get serious about providing clean, top quality wool for your market? Now is the time to get started. You will marvel at the improvement in your fleece quality and so will your customers. Models for horned sheep and silky but tough lighter fabric for fine wooled sheep are available.
I am happy to announce that I now accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. This means that you may now call or email me and usually have your covers shipped the next day. I keep over 500 covers in stock. If I am out of a certain size or you have an unusually large order it may be 7 to 10 days before I ship but I will notify you about any delays. I did not like waiting 3 or 4 weeks for my cover order to arrive when I was raising sheep and I am determined that you won't have to experience that same frustration.
Please see the "how to measure" page for sizing information.

A FEW COMMENTS FROM
have been working great! I used two on a couple of NC Romney yearling
rams so their fleeces would stay clean through the wet winter. John
sheared them the second week of April and the fleeces are gorgeous!
I have handspinners begging for them and they are doing extremely well
at the fleece shows. The coats appear to breathe well while keeping
the fleeces clean. What was great also was the durability. Yearling
rams can be rather tough on coats but they came through with no tears.
Really dirty, yes, but completely intact!"
working like a dream. The Merinos and Cormo's wool is dirt and debris
free! Next years fleeces will be magnificent! Compared to other sheep
covers I've used, yours are sturdier, and I especially like the nylon
webbing leg straps. Your service has been excellent! Thank you! "
coats are by far the best! They don't snag and the breast piece across
the brisket doesn't seem to "bunch up" like some others, so it gives
better coverage and protection there. They are well proportioned and
give appropriate girth for the length. Something about the design also
keeps them from stretching around the neck area and slipping back over
the shoulders and exposing more fleece than they should - a problem
with some other coats I have. I haven't even had to repair a leg strap
or anything. I refer everyone who asks to your coats, and only yours
because they're better "
CLEAN WOOL SELLS!
Exceptionally clean wool is what handspinners want and they will pay a premium price to get it. Keep your wool immaculate with these washable sheep covers that are extremely tough. These tear resistant blankets are breathable and uncommonly durable. They are made in the USA out of highly abrasion resistant nylon woven for the outdoor industry and our Armed Forces. Sheep Suits™ use heavy-duty 1" nylon webbing for leg straps. The ends of the straps are double stitched with an X in a box for maximum strength. The chest panel is sewn in using a bi-fold or French seam that makes it remarkably difficult to tear out. In an effort to keep costs down, fabric colors may vary because I purchase fabric that is called a "cosmetic second" in the roll goods industry. That means that it is not quite the right color or the color varies within the roll or perhaps it is only because it has gotten a bit dirty during the manufacturing process. Sheep Suits™ now come in two different styles. The Regular model like you see above left and the Horned model that is illustrated and described on the Horned page. They also come in two different fabric weights. The 1000 denier weight is great for most sheep breeds. However, if you have fine wools like Merino, Rambouilett or Cormo then Sheep Suits™ Lite may be for you. They are made of slick and silky 400 denier nylon and they will help prevent pilling on the surface of your wool. Try some Sheep Suits™ sheep covers and see for yourself just how tough and versatile they really are!
“ The coats are holding up exceptionally well. Even though the coats seem to be expensive at first, when you figure the wear they get and average out the cost per animal per year vs. the cost of the fleece (top quality, clean and no sun bleaching) they are a fantastic investment for a reasonable cost. Sheep Suits™ are UV resistant. This is so important for us with dark sheep. There's nothing more frustrating than to take a coat off and see your black, black fleece with sun bleached ends. Your coats really go a long, long way to prevent this. We've had very minimal sun bleaching (and that seems to be because the little darlings got the coat over on one side).”
