Begg Sheepskin Pipe Bags

These sheepskin bags are handmade in Scotland by James Begg, a well-known bag maker with decades of experience. Sheepskin bags provide excellent natural moisture control for pipers who play regularly. The bags absorb moisture when played and then dry overnight. This natural feature can eliminate the need for any additional moisture control products.  In hot, dry climates where it is desirable for a bag to retain moisture, a hide bag might be a better choice, but in moderate and moist climates, the inherent properties of sheepskin make it an exceptional pipe bag material. For sheepskin bags to remain airtight, they must be seasoned regularly.

Features of Begg Sheepskin Pipe Bags:
  • Swan neck for comfortable chanter position
  • Longevity of 1-2 years
  • Comfortable, balanced feel
  • Excellent natural moisture control
  • Made from select sheep skins
  • No holes for custom cut and tie-in
  • Hanging loop for seasoning
  • All hand made and hand stitched
  • Minimum 6 hours work put into each pipe bag
  • Available in 4 sizes: Small, Standard, Medium, Large - Standard is the most popular

Remember that Sheepskin Bags:
  • are challening to tie in and should be marked, cut and tied in by someone with experience
  • are not suited to arid climates
  • need to be seasoned in order to remain airtight (more often than a hide bag)
  • should be used by pipers who play often and regularly
  • have a relatively short lifespan
