Isle of Man Manx Loaghtan sheep cotton apron designed by local artist Meriel Burden

Made in the UK and 100% cotton. A good quality product and a great repeated Manx Loaghtan sheep design.

The Manx Loaghtan is a rare breed of small primitive, short-tailed mountain sheep, native to the Isle of Man, dating back to the Bronze Age.

The name Loaghtan is derived from the Manx Gaelic words “Lugh” (mouse) and “Dhoan” (brown) which describes the unique earthy “moorit” colour of their fleece.

Both the ewes and the rams sport horns, the rams especially growing two, four or even six magnificent straight or curly specimens.
