Sheep Wall Art From Fawn Ryeland Sheep Fleece Wool
I made this wall art from a lovely Fawn Ryeland fleece. I wet felted the back of some of the Ryeland fleece and then needle felted the head and ears. I used some black fleece to make the eyes and ears.
Ryeland sheep have fleece that vary in colour and length of staple. The colours vary from dark brown with golden tips to delicate pale colours. The fleece locks vary in length from a few 6cm up to 15cm. They usually have a very dense plush depth to their fleece. Learn more about Ryeland Sheep from the Ryeland Sheep Society.
I only purchase my fleece from trusted owners. I only purchase my Ryeland fleece from Vicky Chadwick of Bluebell Felties.
The sheep must be shorn every summer to keep the sheep cool and help prevent blow fly strike. I buy quality fleece from pet sheep owners and use a process called wet felting to felt a backing. As a result it is similar to a sheepskin rug, but far better for the sheep!
Because the sheep live outside all year round, the item could contain tiny pieces of grass, it is impossible to get every tiny piece out. It might initially shed a small amount of fleece.
