Little Bear is really NOT so little. This Felted Sheepskin is big and is a lovely colour – all shades of brown and grey. It’s also so soft to touch AND the staple is long and crimped . The backing is a soft , strong, brown felt and would be perfectly suited on a sofa so you could pull it over you on a chilly evening or on the floor, or maybe at the foot of your bed ….. SO many options!
This fleece was turned into Felted Sheepskin with love at our small farm in Devon.
‘Little Bear really isn’t that little anymore, she acquired her name as a lamb, at that point she really did look like a little bear cub. Well, as much as a lamb can look like a cub!Today Bear, is a guard sheep, very alert, she particularly fond of chasing off ravens and crows that frequent the flock. As for her breeding she’s very usual, she’s a cross between a Soay/Foula mum with a Shetland/Icelandic dad. This has resulted in Little Bear possessing pretty much ever shade of brown and grey in her fleece.’
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!
