About

Thirty years ago, as a single parent with three children, I took the bold step of not relying on social assistance , but rather myself for the income. I started crafting slippers out of sheepskin, local markets, craft fairs, and shows gave me that income. Fast forward, twenty years, now my children have grown up. In the last ten years, I have produced several different product lines that all promote wool. I have not completely separated myself from the sheepskins, however the wool fabric being more sustainable and renewable are the basis for approximately 80% of my business. I am working towards the day when my entire inventory is wool fabric.
