This Felted Sheepskin is a lovely colour – all shades of brown and grey. Diamond is lovely and soft to touch and the wool has a short staple with longer silvery strands. The backing is a soft brown felt and this rug would suit the sofa or the floor! This fleece was turned into Felted Sheepskin with love at our small farm in Devon.
‘Diamond is a very proud and alert sheep. One of our guard sheep, as we call them, and is always on the lookout. She also ranks quite high within the flock, the other sheep will follow her to fresh food.
Diamond learnt this role from her mum Nita, who was a leader and guard sheep too.
We’ve noticed that differing roles within the flock tend to stay within the sheep families, real fascinating social-behaviour stuff.
Diamond as you can see from her picture acquired her name from the diamond pattern on her nose. Her fleece is so many colours!”
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!
