Pet Bed Mat Raw Wool Fleece Felted Rug - Lester

Yep, that last pic is of the girls fitting over the rug. If only they could learn to share. =o/

This pet mat was made with wool fleece using a wet felting process. The fleece was shorn from rare heritage breed Longwool Leicesters sheep and worked directly into a rug. This fleece is soft, plush, and full of curly locks. There is some remaining vegetable matter from the farm, which adds to the organic, primitive feel of this rug. I can't keep my fingers out of it. This breed of sheep produces an incredibly beautiful fleece. You might even want to keep this rug for yourself, but I can't help thinking of the great dreams the furry ones must have while they are sleeping on a sheepy cloud of fleece.
This fleece rug would look great on the couch, foot of the bed, or where ever your pet enjoys lounging. It would also work nicely in the bottom of a basket. I like to take something from home when we visit the vet, and this rug lines a pet carrier perfectly.

** Leicester Longwool sheep were highly valued in colonial America, and flocks were owned by founding fathers George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. The Leicester Longwool fell into decline in the early 20th century and was likely extinct in the United States by the 1940s. In 1990, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation reestablished the breed at their historic site in Virginia by importing sheep from Australia. Several conservation flocks have now been established, and the population of this important historic breed is increasing, though it remains rare globally.



Just to be clear, fleece is shaved from the back of the sheep. No harm to the animal.
