This is an unique vegetarian fleece rug made from Dora who is a Texel Mule. Dora is part Texel sheep and part another breed.
Her fleece was shorn and I wet felted the back of it using Jacob fleece on the back of the fleece to hold it like a skin would. Of all the rugs I have made, this is my favourite. My vegetarian rugs will always be totally unique, as each year a sheep’s fleece changes colour and length.
The colour of Dora’s fleece this year ranges from off-white to dark grey, it has made its own colour scheme. The length of the fleece, staple length, ranges from 3/4″ up to 8″. This is a one of a kind piece of wall art, Dora will never grow a fleece with this staple length or colour again!
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.
Dora’s fleece was so big I used bits of her to also make an original piece of wall art.
