I create historical costumes, primarily from the Viking Age. As part of my research process I became familiar with types of wool that were used in period and bought several Icelandic sheepskins. Nimar absolutely loved laying on them, with this multi-colored one being his favorite. He spent a fair bit of time keeping toasty warm on this fleece in the middle of the floor.
I put the fleeces away when we welcomed the Kittons into our home, for fear that they might want to groom or eat the fur. Apparently, they really just prefer to pose for photos there.
This past weekend the BigMan's mom came to visit us. Despite her intense cat allergy, she got to meet the Kittons (and suffered no ill effects as a result, but then, they don't trigger my allergies either). The purpose for her visit, I was to learn, was to deliver my Christmas gift.
I was in awe at the amount of time she put into crafting this beautiful fleece blanket with appliqued images of Siada and Layla! She did admit that by the end she did not want to ever sew another spot in her life. lol
