Happy, happy holidays folks! The Christmas holidays mark the only time of the year when our little woolen mill is not in production. From Christmas Eve to the New Year we close down to take a bit of a breather and, with a whirlwind year like 2016, we can sure use it.
Looking back its humbling to reflect on all the great things that 2016 contained. In addition to our daily production which saw carded wool, yarns, socks, and bedding distributed from coast to coast across Canada and the United States, 2016 was the year in which our long-time dreams of growing a dedicated dye garden and starting an artist in residence program were realized. We also had some great parties!
None of this would have been possible without the continued support of you, our amazing friends, customers, wool producers, and kindred spirits. Thanks again for being you and we’ll see you in the New Year!
