Natural Hemp Lead with Wool Felt Handle

✔️ 100% Plastic Free, Natural and Sustainable

✔️ Hypoallergenic and Anti-microbial

✔️ Strong and Soft to Touch

✔️ Handmade in the UK 

Smug Mutts stylish leads are individually handmade using traditional splicing techniques from premium quality, soft and natural hemp rope that is both durable and strong. The splicing is finished off with a decorative hemp twine whipping. 

The beautifully handcrafted natural wool felt handle provides a soft yet strong grip, is carefully stitched over hemp canvas for added strength and durability and secured with rivets.   

Size Guide - measured from the top of the handle to the base of the lead, not including the spring snap:

  • 3ft / 92cm (approx.) - 12mm Rope Thickness
  • 4ft / 122cm (approx.) - 12mm Rope Thickness
  • 5ft / 152cm (approx.) - 12mm Rope Thickness

As each lead is individually handcrafted to order, slight variations are to be expected.

Caring for your Lead

Not suitable for machine washing. Allow any mud or dirt to dry then gently brush off. If more thorough cleaning is required, gently hand-wash with lukewarm water and either lay flat or hang to air dry in a well ventilated area. The lead may shrink and feel stiff once dry, but it will loosen up with use.

Avoid repeat and prolonged exposure to wet and damp conditions without adequate drying time in between uses. Appropriate use and care should be taken at all times to ensure lead longevity.

The Wool Felt Handle

Wool is wear, stain and water resistant so holds up well through all weathers. The soft touch combined with a strong hemp inner makes it a fantastic material combination for a premium dog lead handle.

Wool felt is a renewable environmentally friendly material which is 100% natural.


100% natural and plastic free.

Hand crafted in the UK with an EU supply chain.

Hemp is one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly crops. It requires significantly less land and less water to grow in comparison to cotton, and no herbicides, pesticides or chemicals are required during the growing process.
