Colin's Creatures Porcelain Sheep Figures, Faroe Island Family


It is stunning to watch the long fur of the Faroes blow in the wind. This Faroes family of sheep have creamy wild long hair. The ram has light brown horns, and the ewe looks head on while her lamb is turned to the side, gazing. The fur on this trio is mohair.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany.



Breed Description
The Faroes is a breed of domestic sheep native to the Faroe Islands in Denmark. One of the Northern European short-tailed sheep, it is a small, very hardy breed. Faroes ewes weigh around 45 pounds (20 kg) at maturity, and rams are 45-90 pounds (20-40 kg). Rams are horned and ewes are usually polled, and the breed occurs naturally in many different colors. Faroes tend to have very little flocking instinct, and will range freely in small groups in pastureland. They are most closely related to the Old Norwegian and Icelandic breeds. --info via Wikipedia
