This Rya ewe and lamb pair feature white soft fur and white bodies, with the detailing in the face, pink lips and a slight gray heathering on Mama's nose. They have a sweet relationship and you can feel it when they press cheek-to-cheek.

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