Applique Herdwick sheep cushion made with British wool, stuffed with wool. 20" square.


Yan, the Herdwick Ewe is part of a limited edition collection called Beasties in Bonnets; however, each cushion is unique owing to the use of a variety of colours and patterns of the wool fabric.


Yan's name is derived from an ancient counting practice used by farmers (yan, tan, tethera),  Yan meaning one.  Yan is great fun to make and her body has been made with genuine Herdwick fleece. 


I use British wool from Abraham Moon of West Yorkshire to make all of my wool cushions and this particular wool fabric is one of their very best. Normally I use linen/cotton oeko-tex certified fabric for the reverse but as I wanted this to be an extra special cushion that is 100% British wool the back and the stuffing are also wool.

If you prefer a linen/cotton backing please mention this when ordering your custom made item and a price reduction of £5 will be given. 


Each cushion will come with the limited edition number and a small description of your animal and cleaning instructions. I recommend dry clean only. If you would prefer to have the cushion cover only please message me and I will offer a reduction of £7.  

All international deliveries will have the filler removed and a refund of £7 will be given. 


This cushion will be made as custom made - please message me for fabric samples and your specific requirements.
