When Dutch artist Josche Mooyman's children were young, the family spent their summers in the small province of Drenthe, where they would visit an elderly artist couple that lived on a self-sustaining farm. A deeply creative place (the farmer would sing to her sheep, claiming that it made the milk taste sweeter!), on one visit the sheep were sheared and it was there that the first of the felted critters were born. For the past 18 years, Mooyman has continued to craft her cheerful woolen menagerie, like this charming, colorful collection of sheep, made after the original pair who first shared their wool.
