flock of companionable furniture, with:
Ethel as a wonderful footstool at
75cm long x 40cm high. Price = £475 not including transport
Stan her ram
with hand wrought iron horns at 75cm long x 50cm high. Price =.£595 not

50cm long x 25cm high. Price £160 (inc
All have a sturdy
wooden frame with individually handcarved limewood heads, stained and
waxed. They are. fully upholstered with real fleece which is
removable for cleaning.
Stan has wrought iron horns made by a local blacksmith.
The smaller sheep can be ordered in rare breed fleeces or even
covered in a fleece from your own flock.
For a special gift the calico under cover can be embroidered with names
and dates or a message to make a totally ewe-nique present.
Adults and older
teenagers love them as practical, comfortable and fun pieces while
younger children adore them and use them in imaginative games and also
as an item to lay on and over or to lean against for watching videos!
The large sheep are great for babies learning to stand as they’re solid
and give a good grip. I debated whether to put them on castors but they
are so much safer without and the joy of Ethel is that unlike a rocking
horse, a young child can be left to play with out ‘hands on’ parenting.
. . so you can enjoy a cup of tea!

upholstered in the sail loft on Portland, surrounded by all the Olympic
Each head is
individually handcarved in English lime wood with traditional tools and
fixed to a substantial pine body before upholstering with high quality
foam and calico.
