White Faced Woodland
This breed originated in the Pennines and the Peak District on the borders of Derbyshire and Yorkshire. There is a small flock of them in the Ullswater valley.
Size 30x30cm. Since 2018, I have been needle felting my way through the Rare Breeds Survival Trust watchlist. 10% of rare breed sales goes to RBST. The Whitefaced Woodland is classified as 'vulnerable' by the RBST. I used wet felting, needle felting and machine embroidery techniques with wool, silk and bamboo fibres to create this piece.
