The Lincoln Red Cow Tea Towel
The Longwool Collection
The Longwool Collection of merchandise has been created as part of our new diversification into holiday lets throughout Lincolnshire. We are currently restoring Pow Cottage in Tattershall, and have recently opened up our 16th Century restored Coaching Inn, The Old King’s Head which is a 9 bedroom B&B based in Kirton near Boston. A new website will be coming soon to showcase this new area within the Trust.
From this project we have developed four unique animal characters in our Heritage Lincolnshire colours. These are the Longwool Sheep, which is our headline character, alongside the Curly Coat Pig (which is now extinct), the Lincolnshire Buff Chicken and the Lincoln Red Cow. All of these animal breeds are native to Lincolnshire and we are proud to showcase them on our new merchandise including cushions and cups, tea towels and keyrings.
There are four in each collection for you to purchase and all proceeds from purchasing these products will be directed back into our charity for us to continue our charitable aims of supporting, saving and transforming our counties incredible heritage.
