Bleep the Sheep

Design Projecterian x Jessie Van In
Yarn Garthenor

What better way to celebrate Moorit’s first issue than with our own wee moorit sheep! Bleep the Sheep is made from pure organic wool in natural colours and filled with wool stuffing. The pieces are crocheted on as you go which means there is very minimal sewing.
