This original piece of wallart is made from Dora’s fleece. Dora is a Texel mule, meaning part Texel and part another breed.
Her fleece was shorn and I wet felted Jacob fleece on the back of the fleece to hold it like a skin would. Of all the wallart pieces I have made this is my favorite.
The colour of the fleece 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″. It is such a fantastic way to bring the countryside into your home while knowing the sheep is out in the field growing next years fleece.
All the wall art pieces will always be unique, as even next years fleece from the same sheep will have changed colour and staple length.
Dora’s fleece was so big I used bits of her to add into other pieces of wall art AND made a 3.5ft x 7ft matching rug from her fleece.
