This weekend I had the opportunity to visit the wonderful Sheeples farm, the folks who's wool I have been using for years to make Mojave the Pocket Sloth, one of my shop's best selling items online.
I usually found the wool in the city but was almost out of my last bag, so I went straight to the source.
An hour and a half north of Winnipeg, the drive up to Inwood was peaceful and beautiful. It sure made me wish I had a slice of land myself. I was warmly greeted by Kim, one of the owners, and given a personal tour of the facilities where I met the very characters who's wool I adore.
In September, Sheeples is participating in Open Farm days, where people are welcome to visit farms and learn more about what is done on various properties all around Manitoba, similar to the 'doors open' First Fridays that takes place in the Exchange in Winnipeg, where artists open their studios for people to see how they work. I'm hoping to take the kiddo back with me next time, but I know she will want to take a little lamb home!
