Orphaned lambs across the region got a warm, bright surprise this spring by being coated with their very own jacket.

Masterton’s Masterweave Textiles donated 400 lamb jackets to rural school pupils with lambs that don’t have a mum to cuddle up to.

Masterweave donated 400 lamb jackets for orphaned lambs.

Masterweave general manager Kylie Blyth said the weaver of mohair, alpaca and wool wanted to give back to their rural community and thought this was a way to do so.

“Many children growing up on farms care for orphaned lambs. They feed, play and love these lambs. In many homes, they are kept for years as pet sheep.”

She said the response was enormous.

“The response has been really lovely, the kids absolutely loved them. Some of the schools came back for more. We’ve had people send us pictures with their lambs wearing the jackets, so we are really pleased.”

Blyth said they still had some jackets stored away, so if anyone wanted one, she said to get in touch with Masterweave on Lincoln Rd in Masterton.
