This Felted Sheepskin is a beaut and just SO soft to the touch. It is a beautiful light grey colour with some darkening towards the edge. The wool is soft and springy with a short staple. The backing is a beautiful pliable soft grey felt. Its a big rug and we think it would be amazing at the foot of a bed – how toasty warm would that be! This fleece was turned into a Felted Sheepskin with love at our small farm in Devon.
‘Gary really was the start of the Forever Flock, while we were still raising our flock for meat Gary as a lamb would run up to us and be so friendly we didn’t have to heart to send him off to the abattoir. That was 11 years ago. Today Gary is such a recognisable character with his McDonald’s ‘M’ shaped horns. If we have visitors he’s one of the first in the flock to introduce himself.’
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!
