Here are some comments from customers who wanted tell us how happy they were with their clouds, circles and panels:
"Taunton School’s dining rooms are busy, vibrant and often noisy environments. When we looked for an acoustic dampening solution to create a calmer and more enjoyable dining experience for our staff and pupils, we were delighted to deal with the Woolly Shepherd. Their approach has a mix of local Somerset charm and customer service, style, eco-friendliness and really impressive technical expertise; it was a winner from the start."
"Their technical knowledge was spot on and very reassuring – we received a number of quotes from other companies who didn’t even conduct a detailed sound survey. The installations themselves were professionally installed with minimal fuss, and look fabulous – they have created a talking point with all sorts of valuable lessons about the use of local produce, sustainability and science…..made all the more impressive in that you can actually hear these conversations now! The clouds really do work and our dining experience has been demonstrably improved as a consequence."
"So impressed with the first dining room installation, we immediately ordered a second batch for the junior school’s dining room."
"I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Woolly Shepherd for an acoustic dampening solution; great product, great service and competitively priced. Thank you."
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
"As a charity that helps deaf adults and deaf children through providing clever, loveable Hearing Dogs, we had been searching for attractive, cost-effective acoustic panels for years to improve the experience in our barn-like buildings.The Woolly Shepherd were a delight to deal with, and the products are perfect. They have been welcomed so much by people with hearing difficulties, and they are quite possibly one of the best investments I have made in our HQ.

"The woolly acoustic limpets have made an enormous difference to both the sound quality and overall feel of the room: conversations can be heard, presentations are clearer and when people enter the room, the sight of the clouds certainly raises a smile or two!"
Gill Owen, Education and Learning Manager, Bramall Learning Centre, RHS
“We have been searching for a solution to our noise issues for the best part of 20years and have tried everything that we could find - non of which worked which is why I set upon finding a solution myself and ultimately came across you!”
Andy Everton, Principal (3rd) Trumpet, BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Jane Miller, UK Office Manager, Etsy
“Just to let you know that the change in the sound (rather lack of sound!) was
amazing at lunchtime! We really noticed it and also I spoke to a few people and they
thought the clouds looked really “cool” and they too definitely noticed that change!!!”
Louise Clark Assistant Office Manager, IMG Studios
"The clouds have made a huge difference. You notice the dampened and softened feel of the sounds as soon as you walk in the restaurant – it is really pleasant – almost soothing – much better!"
Sandie Coxill, Facilities Service Manager, Met Office
“I don’t notice the acoustics now, whereas before I was very aware that some customers found it too noisy. We used to take care to move people with hearing difficulties to a quieter area, but now, thanks to the new acoustic clouds, customers can have an intimate conversation without having to raise their voices. We are delighted with the acoustic clouds and panels and we would recommend their use in any spaces with acoustic problems.”
Sue Milverton, Clavelshay Barn Restaurant
“The clouds are an absolute dream and I'm sure we'll have the money back in a few months with people wanting to stay longer and therefore spend more. Before they were fitted a day would not go past without a comment on the questionable acoustics of the room since they have gone up we have not had a single complaint only compliments for the clouds on aesthetics as well as better sound”
Robbie Tack, Owner, The Beaufort In Bath, Bath
“We are delighted with the clouds which do indeed substantially dampen the reverberation within the dome. Please feel free to use us as a reference with regard to supporting your wonderful product.”
Churchill School, Folkestone, Colin Simpson
“We have just recently opened a new school and the D&T rooms were left bare. Meaning no ceiling fitted etc., I think a designer would call it urban or concrete chic. However this caused the rooms to echo badly whilst teaching and work was on going. The clouds work very well and have impressed the teaching staff."
Langley Park School For Boys, Beckenham, John White
“We love the clouds so much, and more importantly they are so effective, that we want some more in our other meeting room.”
Sarah Pettinger , Managing Director, Omobono Ltd
“We are really pleased with the woolly clouds and boards; they make a huge difference.”
Jill Bond, Silver St Centre, Wiveliscombe
“Thank you so much for your swift and efficient installation of our clouds last week,
they are amazing!
ALL of us, without exception have noticed the benefits. I can even hear people
talking in the hallway or dining room when I'm sat at the desk, and that's (literally)
Jacky Taylor, Care Manager, Raynsford Ltd
“The woolly clouds and boards have made a huge difference to the space. We are now able to use it to hold meetings, which we couldn’t do at all before, as the acoustics were so bad. A couple of our groups have several people who wear hearing aids, who found the room completely unusable – it has made a real difference to them, which is great.”
Gail Stephens, Administrator, Heathcoate Community Centre
“The consensus was – “It works” - subsequently endorsed at Thursday’s Computer Class. So, well worth the outlay and effort …catching up with fellow villagers is now an even more relaxing and enjoyable experience.”
Tillington Village Hall
“I personally feel the clouds have made a huge difference, as did the town council when they held a meeting in the main hall recently. It was the first time they hadn’t had to use microphones and the press even commented that they could actually hear at the back of the hall.”
Sarah Farrant (Guildhall Manager), The Guildhall, Axminster
“The clouds have now been in place for about 3 weeks and already the changes are incredible. All classes now use the hall and the stress levels have all but disappeared, and the children love looking at the clouds above them.”
“I can assure you that the quality of the product and the service provided are excellent; Tim has contacted me since the installation to ensure that we are happy with the works, and I have recently accepted another quotation from The Woolly Shepherd to provide acoustic clouds in our own Solardome project.”
“I would not hesitate in recommending the company to you.”
Mrs Susan Richardson, Business Manager, Herons Dale School, West Sussex
“Significant improvement in the reverberation time since they were put up. Makes entertaining much more comfortable as no straining to hear conversations and the room has been the centre of activity over Christmas with 20 guests and a kids birthday party. A great success, thank you”
Sophia Chin, Home Owner, Yorkshire
“I thought I would give you some feedback on our clouds and boards. We have noticed a real improvement in the noise levels in our visitor reception since they were installed about a month ago. The staff are reporting that they are feeling the benefits in their stress levels as well. So thank you for your help and service.”
Rosemarie Allum, Visitor reception team leader, NT Kingston Lacy
"We're really pleased with the felted clouds and their unusual shape has been a hit with both the team and visitors. They've also proved a great talking point and a fantastic way to highlight the Trust's commitment to sustainability to our visitors."
Karen Manton-Cook, Visitor Services Manager, National Trust, Petworth House
We’re all really pleased with the clouds, I think it’s made a real difference to the general ambience in the room, so thank you very much!
Jade Arnold, National Trust, Killerton House
