This felted wool comes from sheep kept as a hobby by private owners living in a private place nearby the Amsterdam water pipe dunes. They are also called ‘ornamental’ sheep, because of their specific appearance. The males have appealing curly horns, and they have deep dark rich skins. The cost for the wool to make this Gunya is approximately 90 euro. As comparison: if it would have been a black ‘Boeren Tesselaar’, the farmer would have to pay 10 cents per kilo to get it picked up by the garbage man.
