Unique Jacob Fleece Wall Art
I made this unique piece of wall art from a Jacob Sheep Fleece. The cream and brown is Jacob fleece is the natural multi colours of a Jacob Fleece. I have washed the fleece to take out any vegetable matter (VM), but left it grubby to show a sheep wears its coat outside all year around.
This wall art is an original item, a unique one off piece to decorate your walls and remind you of nature at its best.
Jacob sheep have fleece that vary in colour and length of staple. The colours vary from dark brown with golden tips, as a result they form a unique patchwork effect of warm browns and creams. The fleece locks can vary in length from a few 6cm up to 15cm and can be tight curls to a plush dense texture. Learn more about Jacob Sheep from the Jacob Sheep Society.
It is such a fantastic way to bring the countryside into your home while knowing the sheep is out on the field growing next years fleece.
Who would not want to have this piece of fleece wall art hung where you can touch it and feel its softness and warmth whenever you walk passed?
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.
