MILKHOUSE

Farm & Dairy

Our flock of British Milk Sheep have beautiful wooly coats that keep them warm all winter long. Once the weather warms up in the spring our flock is ready to be sheared. We hire a professional shearer and make a day of it by inviting a few friends over for a "shearing bee". After several hours of work we are left with happy sheep and several hundred pounds of raw fleece. 

Shearing is an important part of keeping our sheep clean and healthy and marks the beginning of Spring on the farm. Each sheep receives careful attention during their “hair cut” and is not harmed in any way!

Reserve Your Duvet for Fall 2019:

Nothing says a good night's sleep like a wool duvet. We are always looking for new ways to use our wool - its an amazing fibre with an impressive list of health benefits. Wool keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also wicks away moisture while you sleep which helps to make wool hypoallergenic - bacteria, mould and even dust mites don't like the dry environment wool provides. 

Each duvet is made of 100% wool batting cased in a 100% cotton ticking and sewn in a variety of sizes from a Crib all the way up to a King. Duvets can be washed in a washing machine but must be hung to dry (not in a dryer).

We make a small batch of duvets each Fall. Order now to reserve yours! Payment is cash, cheque, credit card, or e-transfer on delivery.

We offer 2- and 3-ply yarns that are perfect for a variety of projects whether you're weaving a scarf, knitting a pair of mittens or simply adding to your stash for a rainy day.

We offer our wool by the skein. Natural coloured hats or mitts are just a couple hundred knits and purls away! Skeins are ideal for dyeing as well - our wool takes a variety of dyes well but is especially suited for natural dyeing.
