A full day course on our working farm learning how to make a felted fleece sheepskin rugs.
Felted sheepskin rugs are made with no harm to the sheep.
We have a choice of beautiful fleeces from our own rare breed sheep, such as Derbyshire Gritstones, as well as a range of different colours and staple lengths from surrounding farms, such as blue texels, jacob and mules breeds (subject to availability).
The finished product measures roughly 2 foot 6 square.
Due to the wet felting process, attendees will need a good level of fitness. As the course will be held in our sheep barn, access is over rough terrain and up a small slope.
We advise warm and waterproof clothes (including pants)
There are toilet and hand washing facilities onsite.
Drinks and cakes will be provided, but please bring a pack lunch.
