The Ewenique Furniture flock are practical, sturdy and blissfully comfy footstools who just so happen to be near life-size sheep each with their own personality. They have a huge appeal right across all ages and situations from starter flats to retirement homes and Christening gifts to 80th birthday presents. So celebrate if you find yourself unburdening your troubles onto your sheep, this companionable furniture very happily bridges the pet/therapy/footstool role!

Wools of Cumbria Carpets
Proud to be producing British Wool Breed Carpets in Britain
We make beautiful 100% wool carpets from the rare and distinctive sheep found on the Cumbrian fells. We closely monitor every single process from purchasing the fleece through to fitting the final carpet in your home.
Our carpets are hard wearing, soft underfoot and will continue to delight for many years.
I source fleece from almost two dozen farms within a 30 mile radius of my home in the Yorkshire Dales. I sort the wool in my garden, sample designs on my handlooms, then ‘shepherd’ my wool through a series of mills based in West Yorkshire and the Scottish borders where it is scoured, spun, dyed, woven and finished, eventually returning to me as 100% British Wool blankets and scarves. Right from the start I have tried to maintain a tight ‘fibreshed’ and a sustainable ethos. I am proud to be playing a part in keeping our once famous woollen industry alive and relevant for future generations.

place within a 70 mile radius of her base in the Yorkshire Dales. Ali’s
