DARK MOON - WILD FELTED SHEEPWOOL RUG
DARK MOON is full of liught and dark layers of wool. Variations of silver and charcoal black. The wool is dense and super soft with a shorter middle layer and outer long staple! Approximately 125cm length x 90 width.
This sheep loved the hedgerows and is reflected in the amount of VM (grass seeds etc) which were embedded in her wool. I have spent hours removing most but some still remains (I call it character ha!) This is reflected in the price, but does not affect the beauty of the rug.
This rug would make the perfect fireside rug, with a yurt, tipi or shepherds hut or campervan! Also draped over the sofa, or perhaps by the bedside. I also have customers who use these for wild camping as they are do much warmer than synthetic and very light to carry.The making process uses Organic Olive Oil soap, eco-friendly cleaning solution, hot water, physical strength and a large dose of patience! Since this is a 100% natural product, it's possible there might be some tiny pieces of straw or grass seed left in the coat. Because these are hand made and natural felted fleeces they respond differently to the felting process. Each fleece has it's own individual characteristics in texture, sheen, lock length and density. Some fleeces will also shed more than others, which is normal. They will give you many years of use. Wild Wool is about creating unique, beautiful, lasting rugs from wool harvested locally at the source - My flock, which graze happily on hay meadows and nature reserves.
The rugs and felts have an essence of nature about them. They are wild, rugged and yet incredibly soft, warm and durable. They reflect the colours of the Earth in all its diversity and therefore every item is bespoke and individual with no two being the same, focusing on organic and environmentally friendly creation.
