Reclaimed Wool Sheep
We are very happy to carry these lovely Reclaimed Wool Breed Specific Sheep from Heidi Leugers. Heidi visits local sheep ranches and chooses the best wool from the flocks to make these sheep ornaments. Each sheep has the breed type and origin on its hang tag. Choose from naturally colored Merino, Teeswater, Wensleydale and Gotland breeds.
All items are of my own design. Most items are entirely hand sewn with virgin wool yarn. Each is made from recycled wool fabrics and virgin wool fleece (direct from the sheep & shepherd). I also use needle felting and traditional wet felting techniques. I rarely use glue. Zero-waste is a central principle to my studio – all waste is recovered and used in the production of new items.
We need beauty in our everyday lives/everyday stuff, but right now beauty needs to be sustainable, and I don’t believe art or craft gets a “pass” in this regard. So, each interior core of the embroidered balls is formed from 100% recycled wool scrap from the studio – no plastic or styrofoam! Labor, love, craftsmanship, great design + sustainability = work worth doing & art worth creating.
