Fini Ribbon, from California, specializes in vintage ribbon and I bought their 1930s/1940s black velvet ribbon to trim the cap. The pictures don't show how pretty--and soft--it is!

my toddler's rocking lamb.
Knowing that Colonial Williamsburg's rare breeds program includes Leicester Longwool Sheep this seemed like a good fit. It's sold in one pound increments so I received a fairly large shipment. The pudding cap didn't require very much so I have lots leftover for future projects.
As you can see, the proof is in--and on--the pudding.
