If Hunkydory’s latest effort strikes you as a little cruel, don’t worry: no animals were harmed in the making of the Shirley Sheep rug. Shirley is, in fact, made from organic wool, shaped by hand with soap and water to produce a soft, springy coat. She comes with her own cotton drawstring pouch, which is also organic, and counts Billie Badger and Finlay Fox, the other creatures in the series, among her friends. £70.
