Handmade Rough Collie Dog Decoration
A gorgeous Rough Collie dog decoration. This handmade sheepdog is made by a process called needle felting. He is made from 100% natural wool with handspun wool dangly legs, a hairy coat and poseable tail. He hangs from a length of natural jute twine. His tail itself is made from copper wire that is wrapped in wool meaning you can bend the tail to a different position if you so wish. A perfect unique gift for all Rough Collie and Lassie fans out there (myself included!). The wool used in his creation all comes from my own flock from a quite few different sheep. It was quite tricky finding wool of the right colours and textures for the sandy grey browns and tan of the rough collie coat thus little locks of wool were scrimped from several different fleeces. The white wool used for his coat specifically comes from Marmalade who also provided some of the tan colour too. I shear all our sheep myself with traditional blade shears and all the fleeces are processed by my hand here at our home.
This listing is for the very same Rough Collie in the photos which believe me don’t do him justice. An incredible amount of time went into all the little details of his hairy coat and tail and facial expression which you can’t really appreciate from the photos alone. I had great fun making him having been a fan of the breed since I was a little girl. He is the largest of this little batch of needle felted sheep & sheepdogs. He will be sent in a little cardboard gift box and would make a lovely pressie! Please be aware that his hairy coat and tail may molt fibers if tugged at, he is for decoration only.
Size – Rough Collie dog is approx 13cm in length (longer if you extend his tail) and 8cm high. His total hanging length with string is approx 20cm
This listing and price is for 1 single item the Rough Collie. Other sheep and dogs seen in some photos are available on separate listings.
I always make every effort to show the true colours of items in my photos and the website photos are never filtered but sometimes colours may vary due to different weather conditions, monitor settings and lighting.
All my needle-felted items are very solidly felted with carefully added details. They are crafted with a lot of love and care. They are not rushed so they take a surprising amount of time to make not including the time spent shearing the sheep, washing the wool, carding, dyeing or spinning the little legs!
Please note – This is NOT a toy. It has been created for display and decoration purposes only. It is made from small needle felted wool pieces and hairy textured wool and the tail has a copper wire base and so could pose a hazard for babies or small children. Please DO NOT give to children under 3 years old.
A lot of time, care and love go into all my items they are all individually made one at a time by just 1 pair of hands – from caring for and shearing the sheep, washing the wool and crafting an item to the packaging and posting – handmade in the truest sense of the word.

We keep a well-loved, high welfare flock of pet and rescue sheep on the Llyn Peninsular in North Wales. Our sheep are a part of the family and each is known by name. All our wool and makes are vegetarian-friendly as we do not breed or sell sheep for the meat market and our sheep live out their natural lives with us. I am a full-time mum and shepherdess. In my (none existent!) free time I make things from wool from the sheep in order to sustain them.
