2nd Large Coloured Lincoln Longwool Sheep Fleece Rug / Throw
I made this Coloured Lincoln Longwood Fleece into a lovely rug with long curly locks. Lincoln longwool fleece have very long locks and are a very heavy fleece. It has cream and grey locks in comparison to a standard Lincoln long wool fleece which has only cream locks. This fleece has a slight green sheep marker colour in the middle, it has not washed out during the making or the washing afterwards, I like my fleece to reflect what it would look like on the sheep. This rug is so big and soft and light, I would use it as a throw over the back of my sofa, so when its a cool night I can snuggle under it.
Watch this video to see how plush and luxurious the fleece is.

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.
