Colt Cowls introduce the Chimney Sheep draught excluder

Date Posted: 07 April 2020

A great new product from Colt Cowls!

New to the Colt Cowls range is the Chimney Sheep draught excluder.

This amazing new product holds a number of advantages over the current market offering of chimney blockers such as the inflatable chimney balloon. 

Firstly it is very environmentally friendly being made in most part from the wool of the Herdwick sheep! This amazing felt like fabric offers advantages such as being breathable allowing the chimney to continue to be ventilated while still keeping the cold air out and the warm air in! The chimney sheep starts at only £17.50 inc VAT which is a very low price to pay for something that if fitted correctly can save the average household a lot of money in heating each year. The felt material also provides better blocking properties as it can be pushed into spaces totally blocking a chimney. Other types of chimney draught excluders require a small gap around them to allow ventilation and products like the chimney balloon can burst whereas the Cimney Sheep can be used over and over again and is even washable!

Once inserted into your chimney flue, the 4.43 tog rated Chimney Sheep acts like a duvet blocking airflow, insulating your chimney, whilst naturally allowing sufficient ventilation through the unique sheep wool material.

It comes with a 6″ handle and 6″ extension rod, giving 12″ of reach altogether.

  • Durable & washable environmentally friendly felt head
  • Rigorously tested by BSRIA and University of Liverpool
  • Stops heat from escaping while blocking cold air from coming down the chimney
  • Reduces chimney noise
  • Prevents wildlife and debris from falling in
  • Provides a very snug fit
