Isn't 'wool sheep' tautological? these handmade wool sheep try to emphasize the obvious. Inspired by the sheep farmers of Newfoundland who have kept flocks of sheep for over 200 years. A testament to resiliency + resourcefulness, a nod to craft, the bodies are hand crocheted, appendages are hand formed and fired, they are stuffed and finished here in my artstudio.


collect a flock or mob of them, they are quite compatible with their cousins, kelp sheep.
