At first I thought I would take pictures of our quite large rabbits – donkey and monkey for this challenge, but then I realised that I would be going to the beautiful Whitehall Farm in Devon soon and I thought the possibilities that awaited me there might make good material. I was right. Whitehall Farm have the biggest breeding flock of Gotland Sheep in the UK. They are absolutely beautiful creatures, as you will see. They are all incredibly friendly too and their fleece is to die for (no dye necessary here as the colours just speak for themselves). I was even lucky enough to bring one soft skin back with me to add to my prop collection.
So, my take on something fluffy was the textural wool of these sheep. I was lucky enough to be able to take these photos whilst the sheep were having their fleeces shaven off, in preparation for the lambing season. There will be another post soon with more about the farm and our little adventure there, but for now, just the challenge images:

Love the white spot on top of her head:
