YARN 13 - Lily the Lamb Rug

By Henrieke Schuiling & Sanne van Opstal

Texel sheep are a familiar sight on the island of the same name, and they don’t come sweeter than this little lamb. Made in 100% Wool, our latch hook rug is a nursery heirloom piece, and although hardwearing, it uses an unusual stitch that’s easy on the hands.
