Fleece Rug Made from Natural Shetland Sheep Fleece
The fleece that was used to make this rug came from the 2018 shearing. It is the fleece from a pure bred Shetland sheep called Bellis, from a small UK farm.
This fleece is brown and grey in colour and shows the natural colouring of the Shetland sheep breed. It is a very thick and soft fleece, which makes a fantastic thick rug.
These rugs are also known as vegetarian rugs, as they are made from sheep fleece, that has been clipped from the sheep in the summer to keep it cool. There is no skin, the backing is made from felted wool, which is 100% British Shetland wool.
Backing measures approx 93cm x 70cm. Locks overhang the backing by a few cm.
This rug is unique and is completely handmade using only 100% British Shetland wool.
Please note that this is a natural handmade product, made from an actual sheep fleece, it may still have some bits of grass / vegetable matter hiding in it! It may shed a bit of wool. Each fleece is different, some shed more than others.
