Blacknose Valais Family with Twins

Colin's Creatures Handmade Sheep Figures, Skudde Flock

It's easy to imagine the beauty of windblown Blacknose Valais sheep in the alpines of Switzerland, almost out of a fairy tale. This hardy, yet gorgeous, breed would make a beautiful addition to any flock.

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

Size: 5" Tall


Breed Description
The Blacknose Valais is a symbol of the Swiss Alps. Native to the Valais region, near the Italian border, the teddy bear looking breed is known for its shaggy colorful appearance. They can be found in the cold months on the valley farms, but when the weather warms, they're taken to the high meadows, around the glaciers. Let me know if you prefer one lamb.
