A Light Soft Jacob Fleece Peg Rug Seat Pad
This seat pad is very thick and plush. I made this lighter tones, very soft, Jacob Fleece into a lovely peg rug. This seat pad has turned out a lovely size, it is is mainly lighter shades with a few darker shades. You could use the pad on a hard chair, sofa /settee or car seat, to provide a soft warm natural texture.
Jacob sheep come in a wide variety of staple length, short to very long and shaggy, with their own personal patchwork of colours. I have seen dark brown Jacob fleece with sun bleached golden tips, to all cream and no additional colours. It is more normal for the fleece to vary in a patchwork design of browns and creams. I only use Jacob fleece as a backing to my other fleece now, it is happy to adhere to the backs of the other fleece and shrink enough to hold all the shorn ends as a skin. Learn more about Jacob sheep from the Jacob Sheep Society.
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.
