" I started following The Living Rug Company on Instagram having being drawn in by the incredible images that Deborah portrays each day of her flock - it's all about her flock! Her care and love for her sheep shine through - a shepherdess with a great ethos. She has so many different breeds and as each sheep is given their own name you get to know them. I was keen to acquire a piece of their story and her work...
Deborah hand creates each rug/throw using the fleece and hand felts the backing,
making each piece individual and unique... So many choices and all made to a very high standard.
I chose a Valais Blacknose (from Poppet!), which now sits perfectly on a window seat. The fleece is beautifully soft and remains true to the characteristics of the sheep with gorgeous loose curls! Deborah added a black felt backing which ties in nicely with the overall colouring of the Valais Blacknose.
A great work of art and having met Poppet a rather lovely memento of such a gorgeous sheep...

Absolutely love our rug 'Kenan'. Such a perfect and ethical rug. Only problem is that we want another one.
The Herdwick rug arrived safe & sound. It is just sooooooooooo beautiful
& I love all the goodies, thank you so much.
I am now trying to decide where it shall live, somewhere that I can curl my toes up in it.
It really is a beautiful piece & the idea & philosophy behind them is very special.
