EcoDomestic Wool Batting:

The most beautiful batting we’ve ever seen or worked with. All of the wool comes from wondrous flocks of sheep grazing in Oregon and California.

The Woolgatherer Carding Mill in Montague produces this wool of extraordinary quality and its production practises are guided by the EcoDomestic criteria (see our “Materials” page).

The batting is available in two weights (see below), 84″ or 88″ wide, any length, and sold by weight. $1.50/oz.

Organic Cotton Sateen:The creamy color of this beautiful fabric represents the actual color the cotton ball grows.After ginning, the cotton is thoroughly washed. There is no bleaching or dying involved in this fabric. We have discovered from experience, that the unbleached and undyed versions of fabric, age much more gracefully, the whites tend to brighten rather than become dull, as the bleached version tends to do.It’s wonderful to see how far the organic cotton industry has come since our first buy of ginned organic cotton back in 1989. Thanks to all the industry pioneers. The Shepherd’s Dream Team give them our full support by using only certified organic cotton in our manufacturing process.  114 inch width fabric. $35 yd.

Organic Cotton

We look forward to the day when we no longer have to ask “is it organic?” When our agricultural standards simply eliminate the use of toxic chemicals altogether!

Just as our bodies are self-healing, so is planet earth. It wouldn’t take long for our soil and water to reflect a much higher state of health!
