This charming small sheep decoration is crafted by hand in Co. Monaghan, by textile designer and hand-weaver Liz Christy. Every piece is knotted and washed by hand to finish and bring out the luxurious softmess of the wool.
Liz’s love of colour echoes what she see around her each day; fresh hues of springtime crocuses and bluebells, vibrant highlights in our summer landscape, rich shades of autumn and shimmering, water-filled winter scenes.

A textile designer and hand-weaver, Liz Christy lives and works in Annayalla just outside Castleblayney, among the rolling hills of County Monaghan.
“I draw my inspiration from the lush drumlin countryside and paintings by my favourite artist, Claude Monet. Paintings by Paul Gauguin and American artist, Edward Hopper have influence in some of my work.”
“It is essential that I can truly guarantee that my textile designs are genuinely hand-woven in Ireland. Hand-weaving is an age old craft and my looms are powered by hand and foot and all my work has a woven selvedge. Every piece is knotted and washed by hand to finish and bring out the luxurious softness of the wool.”
