Soft Brown Shetland Sheep Fleece Rug
I love this soft brown shaggy fleece from a Shetland sheep. Shetland sheep can have a short staple to a long shaggy staple. This rug has both, down the centre it has a short staple and down the sides it has a long shaggy staple.
Shetland sheep’s fleece come in such a rich array of colours, their fleece can range from short and dreamy soft, to long and shaggy. I don’t brush many of my rugs out as I prefer them shaggy how they would be naturally on the sheep. Learn more about Shetland sheep from the Shetland 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.
