Wool Facts

We use 100% Canadian Wool for or cushions and placemats

  • Our team members,  Todwick Studios and Nutbar Knits handcraft their unique decor items locally in Nova Scotia, Canada. Woven using tactile, Canadian wool, these hand-woven, and knit hand-made products are general favourites.
  • This wool placemats and cushions are environmentally friendly. Natural wool is a sustainable fibre. Farmers and ranchers shear their sheep  at least annually as their fleece doesn’t shed. Since, without this regular shearing the fleece overgrows potentially harming the sheep.
  • The wool, a robust hand knitting yarn, will withstand years of use. Unlike the more common merino these yarns have more body and a firmer hand. Therefore, our local hand-knitters favour this sturdy Canadian yarn spun in Atlantic Canada for knitting outdoor wear, likewise, we prefer this yarn for our specialties also.
  • Many customers are concerned about happy sheep. Therefore, we use 100% ethically sourced Canadian wool! We are fortunate in Canada. The harsh methods used by ranchers elsewhere to keep their sheep healthy are not necessary here.

Easy Care Wool

  •  As part of our customer service we provide a cleaning solution sample. Wool is easy care with the right washing techniques and mild soap or detergent. As part of our product info we recommend products such as Eucalan.
  • The washing method is simple, soak your wool place mat in cool water, squeeze out the excess water, don’t wring. Next, roll in a towel and lay the cushion flat to dry.
  • Color may vary slightly from yarn batch to yarn batch. Therefore, we advise our customers to purchase all the placemats they require at the same time.
