Christien Meindertsma

This project, by artist Christien Meindertsma, is titled Idaho. She has taken wool {which is then felted, creating big, fat, beautiful yarn} from an organic flock of Panama sheep who roam the grassy hills of Lava Lake Ranch, Idaho. Each hexagon-shaped piece in the rug is made from the wool of one sheep in the flock. She uses a different knitting stitch for each piece/sheep, so that when the whole rug is sewn together, every sheep in the flock is visually represented… did that make any sense at all? Well, if not, this interview with Christien might help clear things up, plus you’ll get to see all of those sweet sheep {pre-haircut} wandering the peaceful landscape of Lava Lake Ranch. Ahh, so lovely.
