I drink  tea all day long and have collected a lot of mugs. Of course I’m especially drawn to mugs with any kind of a fiber theme, sheep and knitting needles cavort in my cupboards. I have Knitty mugs, Jennie the Potter mugs, mugs from local potters and a just a few from Etsy.

I recently ran across a fantastic set of mugs from Herdy, you know the cute little sheep stuff.

Herdy things usually look like this:

But this set is decorated with specially commissioned artwork from by Scottish artist Owain Kirby that depicts the journey of wool from sheep to finished object. The set is called Wool Journey.
