How to create a warm and enticing home this autumn?  There is something to be said for using soft, tactile materials in a living space.  I came across these beautiful Gotland sheepskins in Sweden this summer.  They are so soft to touch with a tight curl that is beautiful to look at.  The naturally occurring grey colour is modern and chic.  These sheepskins are not meant to be used as rugs; they are designed to be touched and when placed over a chair, bench or sofa they add comfort as well as texture to a room.  I have come across a few shops that sell these beautiful things: Forma for Living, The Conran Shop and Sheep Shop.
