This Felted Sheepskin is a strawberry blonde colour which fades into lovely ginger tones at one end. The rug is heavy and dense – the wool is medium soft. The backing is very strong felt and I think it would suit a floor really well. This fleece was turned into Felted Sheepskin with love at our small farm in Devon.
Dame Judi has unusual breeding, her mum was a Soay/Shetland cross and her dad was Icelandic.She bears the markings of all three breeds, although her fleece quality is more that of an Icelandic.
All the members of our flock have names and Mrs here is no exception. From a lamb, we noticed she thought herself a cut above the others. As sheep go, she has a real air of grandeur about her. If she was human we’re sure she would be a luvvie.
Hence her name is Dame Judi Dench.
This fleece came from ‘The Forever Flock‘ where nature and biodiversity are a top priority – these sheep are kept for their wool, so are saved from the food chain. If you would like to find out more about ‘The Forever Flock’ and their farming ethos head over to our blog!
