Fun Fact

New Zealand’s first sheep were set ashore by Captain Cook on May 20, 1773. There are now over 44 million sheep in New Zealand – that’s close to 10 sheep per person.

Treat a friend (or newlyweds) to the warmth and comfort of a natural, organic blanket made from their own sheep’s wool. After your gift recipient’s sheep is sheared, the wool is rushed to the mill to be custom-woven into a pure, beige wool blanket -made as nature intended with no compromise on quality, and without the use of any dyes or chemicals.

The perfectly natural way to stay warm.

Additional Information

Experience the warmth, comfort, and durability of a natural beige wool blanket from the wool of a flock that includes your own Dorset sheep, a beloved member of a shepherd’s cooperative.

  • It all starts with the tender care we take of the sheep of your choice.
  • The pure virgin wool, nature’s premier fiber, is carefully washed -without the use of solvents, bleaches, moth-proofing or harsh chemicals- by skilled weavers. The wool is then carded, spun, woven, and napped into natural, custom-woven blankets. An heirloom that will be appreciated and enjoyed for generations.
  • Our three progress reports will keep your recipient up-to-date on the tender care of their sheep, connecting them to the land and the flock.
  • We do all the work and you get all the raves (while helping support small family farms and craftsmen).

    I was lucky enough to get a “lamb” for Christmas. The blanket is perfect for curling up in a chair and reading in the winter. Beautifully made and sturdy. Would also be great for anyone who goes to football games.

  2. Beth Millet

    This is a wonderful, creative idea! The blanket far exceeded my expectations.

  3. Sue Kamm

    Last Christmas I received a “sheep” from my daughter. It has been fantastic! As a child we had sheep and had the wool made into blankets. Sadly all but one are gone. Getting my “sheep” was the most perferct gift! I loved getting the updates and the blanket is just beautiful! My thanks to you all from the sheep on through the weavers and all who made it possible. Heres to many warm nights!

    It’s such a mystery why wedding gifts of livestock ever went out of vogue.

    Very high quality blanket. I like the size of it. I can see using it for years to come. I also loved the newsletters.

    Hello, we rented a sheep for very dear friends for Christmas and the blanket arrived yesterday. It is gorgeous and has such sentimental value as my husband, Tom, who discovered you, passed away in June. We all had forgotten about this gift and then it arrived. All of us were touched and so thrilled so I wanted to thank you.

    They have a wedding anniversary in mid-August so the reports during the year with the “pay-off” in August will extend the gift. Also, my sister was a longtime 4-Her who raised sheep and I know she will appreciate the reports. (The reason I chose this lease in the first place.)
