Combining hand-selected fleece from local rare-breed sheep and traditional handweaving techniques, each of our Raw Fleece Wall Hangings is individually hand-woven and celebrates the natural tones and textures found in each unique fleece. Each Wall Hanging sits within a tonal group, similar, though not exactly matching the image shown.
The undyed fleece used in this design, by Karen Hay-Edie, is from several breeds of sheep native to the UK such as the Piebald Jacobs, Hebridean, Wendsleydale and Cheviot. The fibres are long and fine with good lustre. Gradations of tone throughout the undyed fleece give wonderful depth of colour. Varying thicknesses within the hand-twisted fleece combine with speckly berber yarns and linen to create great textural interest.Undyed hand-twisted fleece, Wool, Linen
