Ian Murray Sheepskin Pipe Bag with Swan Neck

These sheepskin bags are handmade in Scotland by Ian Murray. The sheepskin feels substantial and it's easy to see the masterful care with which the bag was made. Sheepskin bags provide excellent natural moisture control for pipers who play regularly. The bags absorb moisture when played and then dries 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.
