Original Vegetarian Fleece Rug, Texel Mule from Dora

£450.00

Unique one off vegetarian, vegan wet felted fleece rug. I purchase fleece from rare breeds sheep, most will be pet sheep, then I wet felt the bottom of the fleece to make a firm base.

I love letting the fleece dictate the shape the rug.

The rug is made from a shorn fleece, this means the sheep is still alive and growing next years fleece.

This rug is made from Dora a Texel mule.  Her fleece colour ranged from off-white through a variety of shades of grey to dark grey.  The staple length ranges from 3/4″ to 8″ long.

Size 3.5ft x 7ft

Description

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.
