Here is my sheep in progress. I wanted so much for the lumpy natural sheep look so was hoping the wool chosen for this project would work.
The wool used for the sheep I've had for years. It was something Gail Dufresne was selling at a rug camp and thought immediately of a sheep. I believe I've had this wool for at least 9 years and happy to finally use it for a sheep.
Here is a close up of the sheep and the hand cut strips used for the majority of the sheep.Was so hoping to leave some length to the strips so it would appear as a shaggy sheep but the ends wanted to stick out straight like a sore thumb rather than hanging downward. For now will leave those few ends and see if that provides the look. If not then I'll trim them down like we do most ends.
