Beware, if you buy one of my fleece rugs, it may just be claimed by your pets!
I recently sold a felted fleece rug / throw made from the 2018 sheared fleece from a beautiful Gotland ram. A big thick, curly, lustrous, steel coloured fleece. After a few days, the lady who purchased the rug reported a problem; it had been claimed by her two Bengal cats, who were each trying to claim it for themselves!
An excerpt from the email: ” I have made a rod for my own back – the Gotland fleece rug is so popular with my 2 cats that they are now squabbling over who sits on it (I have Bengals so one is easily able to stretch and keep the other off the rug). I would like to buy a couple of smaller Gotland fleece rugs for their beds. ”
I am currently waiting for the 2019 fleeces from a couple of ladies who keep pedigree Gotland sheep, so that I can make individual, small rugs. The large throw can then be returned to its intended use!
Just look at how comfortable one of the cats: “Milo” has made himself!
It is no wonder that animals love these fleece wool rugs as they are so soft and warm. I have another customer who also purchased a brown Icelandic fleece rug from me, especially for her cats.
