We are so excited to announce (finally!) that Calypso and Voltaire have completed their genetic health screening through Embark veterinary and are clear of all genetic defects and diseases. They are all set for breeding and we will be expecting Livestock Guardian puppies in the fall of 2020.

Hand dyed wool batting from our Finn sheep. Lofty, soft, uniquely dyed fiber perfect for all of your crafting needs. Ideal for felting, spinning, or other fiber crafts. Great for many projects and each piece is unique. Each batt weighs at least 1.2 oz and is approximately 12x 16 inches. Batts come in four colors: Summer Sky (blue), Sunset (golds, orange, and pink), Sunrise (magenta, purple, blue), and Spring Waters (blue and green). You can buy these batts from our Etsy shop.
We have reusable cotton face masks! We’ve been playing around with the design for the best fit and we’ve finally done it. We now are selling the masks on Local Line and Etsy. We’re keeping prices low because masks shouldn’t be used as a money maker, but as a tool to help the community stay healthy and safe. Find them on Etsy or Local Line. We have over 15 different fabric options and have recently included masks for kids (sloths and POW! fabric are exclusive for kids masks). All fabric can be used for kids masks. We use fabric ties for the adult masks and elastic for the kids masks. We are looking into using Velcro for kids as well. Current prices are $6 for adult masks with ties, $8 for adult masks with elastic, and $6 for kids masks with elastic. Further details on the masks can be found below the pictures.
Reusable cloth face masks made from two layers of cotton fabric. The CDC currently is recommending everyone wear a face mask in public. We’re offering comfortable masks that can be washed and reused. Masks are made-to-order, large orders may take some time before being shipped. Select a design from the menu, we have everything from fabric with seahorses, dogs, owls, plaid, and more. We have a few masks with elastic bands but only a limited stock of elastic. Because of the high demand for elastic and the shortage around the country for elastic our elastic tie masks are $2 more than the cloth tie masks. All children’s masks come with elastic at no additional charge. Elastic is unsuitable for those with a latex allergy. POW! and sloth fabric is exclusively made for children’s masks. We have plenty of face masks with cloth ties and more to come!
Directions for cleaning: hand wash in warm to hot water with soap or detergent and air dry. You can add fabric softener to keep the cotton soft and supple. Some sources have suggested UV light can destroy viruses, so after washing and drying if you want you can hang the masks up in direct sunlight.
To use: Pattern side should be facing outwards, ties go behind your head. A simple bow tie will work to keep the mask on. Pinch the metal at the top of the mask to the bridge of your nose for a custom fit.
Important to note: Our masks have pliable metal around the top of the mask inside the cloth for a tighter seal and customized fit to your face. While unlikely, it is possible that the metal can rust. Inspect the site before use and keep the mask dry when not being washed. If rust does occur you can either cut out the metal and continue using the mask or you can dispose of the mask. You can also request we not put the metal in the mask. Rusting is unlikely when used correctly and we recommend having the pliable material in the mask for the best fit.
As always send us a message if you have any questions or concerns and we will do our very best to aid you.
