Sheep Sanctuary is a Plant Based Animal Sanctuary Based in whitby North Yorkshire.
We have a vegan lifestyle and we always promote it, but recently in an attempt to become self sustaining, we decided to work with our animals and made the decision to combine my love for arts and crafts with their sheared wool from our many rescues. 

All our sheep are here for life and it seemed sad and wasteful to discard the fleeces that they have grown. So now  create products from them, each piece has a name and funds raised help us to keep going making it so we do not have to totally rely upon hand outs/donations.

We are still a long way from being self sufficient but i hope that within a couple of years we will be well on our way. 

I am truly greatful for your support and kindness over the years. 

Below are some of things that i have created from the sheared fleece of our much loved gang, i love what i do and i truly adore sheep. 

No skin rugs, are cruelty free sheep fleece rugs that no animal had to die for, they are made using the art of wet felting which is very labour intensive but amazing to see such a lovely fleece rug that actually has a name and a story to tell..

Below is a big lamb collectible that i created using the artform of needle felting, again another labour of love. This one was made in the memory of a special little sheep that sadly never made it. Our "Duchess" whose memory will always live on X 

This year we worked with a farmer and agreed to take on 17 old ewes that were going to be sent to slaughter ( last year we took on 5 old gals that came to us and not to the abbattoir, 3 of them turned out to be pregnant and gave birth to some very healthy little lambs. 
He donated their fleeces this summer to me of which i call the "Rescue Rugs" ~ i turned them into Veggie rugs and the funds raised go towards the care of the new ladies that will be with us very soon

I also created little sheep collectibles ~ all of which i self taught myself in a desperate attempt to bring in the funds to go towards the upkeep of the sanctuary

We also created cat beds, dog beds and bird feeders filled with sheared fleece, so as not to waste any
