  • About Black Sheep

    Black Sheep Latex was started in early 2012 by our designer Helen.

    We make rubber clothing designed to fit and flatter the feminine shape, including dresses, tops, skirts, lingerie and accessories. We also cater for gentlemen, offering several items including tshirts and briefs.

    The majority of our designs are chlorinated to smooth the surface of the latex and make dressing a lot easier and less messy, it drastically reduces the need for talc or lube!

    Custom orders are always welcome, we love making your ideas come to life!

    Please feel free to email us with any queries.

  • Chlorination

    The majority of our latex is chlorinated, this is a process which smooths the surface of the latex, making it much easier to dress and greatly reducing the need for talc and lubricants.

    There are many advantages to using this procedure, there are no messy talc marks, latex can be layered under normal clothes, or on top of other rubber items. The life of your latex may also be increased as chlorination stops any stickiness after washing and drying.

    Treated latex can be handled in exactly the same way as unchlorinated, the only difference being that the surface of a repair needs to be roughened slightly with sandpaper before glueing.

    Some of our products are not chlorinated, such as accessories and items with lace or metals, these are noted in the product description.

  • Latex Care

    Cleaning - Latex should be cleaned after being worn by rinsing inside and out with luke warm water. It should be dried flat or on a wooden or plastic hanger before storing in a plastic bag or tissue paper.

    Storage - Your latex should be stored away from heat, humidity and light so as not to affect the finish and shine.

    Handling - Please be gentle when pulling your garment on and off as latex is fragile and too much stretching may result in a rip. Be extra careful to remove any jewellery before dressing as any edges such as rings or fingernails can cause a tear in the material.

    Light coloured latex can be stained by certain types of metal so be careful not to handle coins or wear piercings that are in contact with your garment otherwise a permanent yellow stain may occur. Perfumes and oil based lotions may also chemically affect the latex finish.

    Shining - Latex can be polished to a high shine using silicon based sprays or wipes, I would recommend Armorall or Vivishine.

  • Payment

    Payment is accepted via Paypal, and is expected at the time of purchase. Unpaid orders will be cancelled after 2 days if the buyer doesnt contact us first. If you have problems with your payment pop us an email and we'll do our best to work something out.
  • Shipping

    The current lead time is 2-3 weeks. Sometimes a particular colour of latex may be out of stock and I will let you know straight away if this is the case and it is likely to affect the shipping time.

    Your garment will be washed with Vivishine and packed in a bag that can be used for storage. We would advise that if your parcel arrives damaged that you do not accept the delivery, otherwise only you could make a claim for compensation yourself.

    Uk £5 - Parcels are sent by Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded delivery - these usually arrive within 1-2 days of posting.

    EUROPE £12 - Parcels are sent by Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded delivery - these usually arrive within 1-2 days of posting.

    INTERNATIONAL £14 - Parcels are sent by Airsure which can be tracked (depending on the country) and should arrive 7-10 days after posting, although I find in reality it can take a few days longer, especially if they get held up through customs.

    Please note that we cannot be held responsible for postal service delays or any additional customs charges.

  • Refund

    Black Sheep Latex would love you to be happy with your purchase. If you have any issues with your garment please don't hesitate to contact me so that we can sort things out. Please take care when taking your own measurements, I would recommend you ask someone else to measure you as your own movements may mean you take inaccurate sizes. Please note that each of our items is made to order and refunds will not be given due to wrong initial measurements. An exchange will be arranged if the item differs to your specifications, ie. wrong colour, please contact me within 7 days after delivery if this is an issue. Each garment is handmade and may differ slightly to the photograph as the patterns are adapted to each individual order. Please read the latex care advice on this page as latex is a delicate material and problems can be avoided with the correct handling and washing. If you have any problems with damage please contact me, preferably with a photo so that we can see how to resolve it. If it is an issue with workmanship I will repair the item free of charge, however if the damage has been caused by improper handling, ie. tearing or accidental damage, the garment can usually be repaired for a small fee.
