A veritable Noah's Ark of fluffy woolly animals. Quirky art to make you smile.
Hello, I’m Penny, the artist behind Penny Lindop Designs.
We are a tiny team creating cards, stationery and art work in our rural garden studio on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. We love animals, and it would seem that you do too. Our animal designs are all hand finished with our signature finishing touch of real sheep’s wool. These are distinctive creations which simply make people smile.
We are passionate about our raw materials and where they come from. Handmade papers, made as part of a Water Aid project, are used for most of our artwork; we love these papers, and that their production is sustaining a whole community in India where they are made. Much of our wool comes from small holders across the UK, often from rare or ancient breeds of sheep.
Whether you are looking for a simple card, a special gift or a little treat for yourself, our work is full of joy and offers something just a little bit different.
We hope you will enjoy our products.
How it came to be
I started my business in 1998 when my 2 girls were quite young. Inspiration has come from so many of life’s special moments. An evocative childhood spent in the countryside of Worcestershire, with happy hours spent at the family’s carpet factory kindled a lifelong passion for textiles and all things sheepy.
Studying archaeology and ancient textiles triggered a fascination with spinning and weaving, and led to a love of primitive and ancient sheep breeds. Throw a bit of travel, a sketch book and a camera into the mix, with the joy of a young family and plenty of animals, and what results is Penny Lindop Designs.

While every effort has been made to portray items accurately, slight variations, especially in colour, will occur since each piece is individually hand finished. We used both naturally coloured and dyed fleece in our work, and hence there is some variation.
The reproduction of colours is as accurate as photographic and publishing processes will allow.
