HOOD - WILD FELTED SHEEPWOOL RUG
  • HOOD - WILD FELTED SHEEPWOOL RUG

    This is HOOD, one of my rams. a large, beautifully unique handmade Shetlandic wool Felted Sheepwool Rug. The colours are exceptional variations of silver, copper, tan and white. The wool is dense and super soft! Approximately 140cm length x 130 width.

    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.
