I feel so lucky that at this stage in my life I can have this humble little shop, and have it express everything I feel so strongly about....animal rights ( always ) .... and more than ever, recycling.
I grew up on a acre with horses, cows, chickens, dogs & cats. I've always loved animals, gardening & anything with nature. Animal rights is very important to me.
I've been lucky to connect with wonderful animal sanctuaries, and small family farms to get my wool.

First and formost, it helps our fragile planet by making use of material that would end up in landfills. Did you know that it helps women too? It's a fair trade product that works close with women co-op groups, insures they get a fair wage, that helps them support their families....and most importantly, no child labor is involved.

Thanks for reading this far...hopefully it didn't feel like I was on my soapbox preaching...
but it's important to let you know what my shop stands for...
and the good karma that goes along with it....whew...I hope that wasn't too long...lol
