I'm so thrilled with my "Ian" rug ... I love the look of it, the feel of it and even the smell of it! Thank you for the little tour yesterday, that was so interesting ... though Ian's customer-focus skills could use a little improvement, as the best view of him was his fluffy bottom disappearing into the fog! A wonderful product, story and ethics. I'd give six stars if I could.

I recently contacted The Living Rug Company asking whether or not it would be possible for them to turn one my recently shorn sheep, Doris' fleece into a rug. There was no guarantee the fleece would felt, however I was delighted The Living Rug Company took a chance and agreed to have a go. Doris is one of a large hill flock residing on the Brecon Beacons, bred by myself. 
From start to finish, the customer service I have received has been second to none. 
On receiving the rug, I was blown away by the beautiful packaging, echoing the 'handmade with love' feel to my whole experience. The end result is quite simply stunning. To say I am over the moon is an understatement; not even a photograph can truly capture the exquisite craftsmanship and raw, rustic charm of this bespoke piece.
As I have said, Doris is one of a hill flock and endures all sorts of Welsh weather, so I can only imagine what the fleeces are like from the pet sheep at The Living Rug Company - who may be just a little bit more pampered! 
I'm already looking forward to another rug from Doris next year. What a fabulous company!

" 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.
