I hand felt clothing, hats, shoes and puppets and teach these arts to children. I am so happy to have found the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers, supplying me with very fine quality Canadian fleeces, which I have been dyeing with natural plants from forest and garden. What a wonderful alternative to the merino wool that I was using, sent from around the world and surely processed in China.

Thank you CCWG for allowing me to have a local focus and for your commendable service and product.
