BABY SHEEP SWEATER

Inspiration: This sweater is dedicated to our loving sheeps, the ones who provide us with lovely wool for our sweaters. I also wanted to play with textures, so that babies can touch and experiment with the sweater.

Sizes: Newborn (1-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-24 months)
