Tips: Caring for wool items
Tips: Caring for wool items

Caring for wool is easier than you may think--and much more forgiving than people often give it credit for! A simple way to wash an item or yarn is to fill your sink up with luke warm water and a dash of dish soap, gently add the item/yarn and let soak. Then drain the water, set the items into your clothes washer to spin the excess water out. Then fill the sink with lukewarm water one more time to rinse the item, just set it in, let it soak, then back to the washer for spinning out the water!

If you are storing an item long term, wash it before you store it, we recommend in a sealed ziplock type bag, and add a dryer sheet or lavender sachet to keep it free of moths--you can also tuck things into your freezer just to be safe, they will pop out when you need them all nice, fresh and ready to be worn or used! Nothing to it!!

News Update

7/18/14- The sheep are enjoying some breezy, not so humid days. Even doing a little tanning of tummies and legs? Whoa!

They are also working on a new blog. We can get into the old one but not to edit or add to it. It will stay on our site as 'archives'. Lots to do lots to do.

Our next update will be Tuesday, July 22. If you are looking for something you don't see on the site, just send an email on over!

Smooches from the sheep!
