This original piece of wall art 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 using Jacob fleece on the back of the fleece to hold it like a skin would. Of all the wall art pieces I have made, this is my favourite. 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.
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″. 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 add into other pieces of wall art AND made a 3.5ft x 7ft matching rug from her 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?
