This rug is just beautiful. It has a long, mostly straight staple and is a really beautiful deep grey with some ares of brown. The wool is really soft and has a good lustre to it. Dougal lives with the Forever Flock and as you can tell by his name, he is a ram! He’s the oldest ram in the flock, at 9 years old, but he’s still got some spring in his step and is currently out courting some ewes in a field. His lambs will be due April next year.
Dougal is a gentle giant, for all his magnificent horns he’s never used them in anger, they are just for show and to woo the ladies. His fleece is very soft for a ram and beautiful array of colours.
The backing is a natural grey felt and is really durable and strong. This rug is classic in shape and a good size. It would be suitable for the floor or a sofa and is a real all rounder and will look great anywhere.
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!
