We just love Humbugs markings so much! This is the second time we have made a Felted Sheepskin from her fleece. The wool is about as soft as silk and the colouration is just gorgeous. The brown is so warm like cinnamon and the perfectly contrasting patches are pure white. The backing felt is a strong soft dark brown so therefore could go on the floor but surely you’d want it on your sofa or bed to keep you warm and snuggle into! This fleece was turned into Felted Sheepskin with love at our small farm in Devon.
Like the confectionery, humbug is brown and white in colour and very sweet in nature. When we’re working with the flock, Humbug will walk over seeking attention, she particularly loves tickles behind the ears.
Humbug is a pure foula, a rare breed of Shetland sheep noted for their hardiness and toughness. Although don’t tell Humbug that, she’s too much of a softie to fit that rugged description.
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!
