No sheep were harmed in the making of this wedding dress.

by Brenda on August 21, 2009


Louise Fairburn, an award-winning breeder of rare Lincoln Longwool sheep, used the fleece from her very own flock to create her gorgeous and unique wedding dress. The accompanying article states the dress was created by a spinner and a dressmaker, and took 67 hours to make.

Absolutely stunning! I love it!

Ha, I’d be too tempted to spin off of my dress during the ceremony… Wait! Is that a drop spindle I see, hidden away?! 😉

I hope it didn’t rain!

I would love to see how you might translate this into fabric, as I think that it would be difficult to match the variations in color and the texture. A really interesting dress, and she looks like she feels beautiful in it which is of course the best thing a dress can do – especially on your wedding day!
