I have both felted and spun with this wool now, and it does both marvelously! It’s kind of spongy feeling – the wool has a TON of crimp and memory. Spins like a champ, and felts like a champ. I…
The best beans I’ve ever tasted. Cooking dry beans is sadly becoming a lost culinary skill. Your local grocery stores will only have black beans or pintos at best. Do yourself a favor and try the heirloom varieties. I promise…
Beautiful felted wool dryer balls–wow! I’m tempted to leave them on display instead of tumbling them in my dryer…almost. Very fast shipping. Thank you! –Rachel B.
Love love love my socks! Such a gorgeous color; fast shipping. –Kendra W.
The bran muffins were so good!! I made them per your recipe yesterday for breakfast. I think that’s the first time I’ve made bran muffins from actual bran rather than bran cereal, and I loved that they weren’t overly sweet.…
Roving shipped very quickly, and I was very excited when I received it. I couldn’t start spinning it fast enough. I have never spun Polypay before, but I find it similar to Shetland, which is one of my favorite wools. It’s springy…
Crockpot black beans were fabulous!! Did add a whole jalapeno and a little more garlic. Added to rice and have really enjoyed. –Kerri D.
I love my dryer balls! My dryer runs less and my clothing is fluffed and less wrinkled when dry. I especially like that these are made from wool harvested from the sheep that the farm raises. A wonderful product! –Marilyn P.
These dryer balls work wonderfully and are well made! I’ve been using them to reduce/eliminate static and they’ve done well on everything from clothing to towels to sheets. I highly recommend them as a replacement for dryer sheets–just remember that these fluff…
Fabulous lamb chops!! Can’t wait to knit some socks with the beautiful yarn from your sheep! We SO enjoyed your shop and your Belted Galloways too. –Priscilla B.
I’ve never used Polypay roving before, but I really like the texture as well as the beautiful color. I think it’s going to work very well for both needle and wet felting. –Jessica R.
Wow! I love these socks! I’m a shoe size 7 (purchased women’s size 6-8) and they are the perfect size. Easy to put on and take off… not too tight, not too loose. –Joyce P.
Amazing quality. Perfect for my crafting. Definitely will be purchasing other colors in the future. Thank you! –Esther S.
These handwoven rag rugs are even more beautiful than their photos suggest–and so soft on the feet! I love them! Also thanks so much for the super-fast shipping. –Selby C.
Good communication, fast shipping and great wool! This Suffolk roving is perfect for shaping/core wool in my needle felting projects. Thank you so much! –Angie P.
Beautiful yarn that arrived lightning fast! Can’t wait to knit some “local” socks! –Laura W.
The socks arrived quickly, and they are soft! I’m thrilled to buy a wool product directly from the farm that raised the sheep! –Rebecca T.
These work wonderfully and are well made! I’ve been using them to reduce/eliminate static and they’ve done well on everything from clothing to towels to sheets. I highly recommend them as a replacement for dryer sheets – just remember that…
Beautiful, nicely made, warm snuggly socks. Shipped and received promptly! Thanks so much–these are wonderful! –Rita N.
Great dryer balls! My Mom will love these! Great for sensitive skin and earth friendly people. –Laura S.
Your beans aren’t just delicious, they’re pretty too! –Becky E.
“Thank you for raising such good food. We’ll enjoy our lamb–last year’s was a treat every time we indulged!” –Ronti J.
Dryer balls: Hooray for locally made, eco-friendly awesomeness that make my dryer work more efficiently. –Jennie T.
Loved this family and farm immediately! They have the best quality meat and the care they give to the soil and the process of it all–it’s so appreciated! –Jessica T.
This needle felting kit is really great! Perfect for a first-time felter. Really fast shipping. –Diana K.
Love the cone of unwashed yarn and will be back for another cone. When you first get this it is tightly spun and still oiled from spinning. It might look more like string than yarn, but I knew what it would do…
Your beans are so tasty…we LOVE them. —Deb V.
Always a pleasure working with Shady Side Farm! Top quality wool, great communication and FAST shipping! –Laura W.
Finding Suffolk roving which really IS Suffolk and which isn’t rustic is a bit of a challenge. Roving shipped quickly, the fiber is a well-prepped farm-grown roving, and it will be perfect for my seminar participants. –Rhonna R.
I made my hat purchase during Holland’s Kerstmarkt. I had lost my favorite winter hat several years ago and had not been able to find a substitute until now. The quality and warmth of this hat surpasses my old hat!!…
You Shadysiders are amazing stewards of the Lakeshore’s agricultural heritage. I write this as I’m snuggled under my wool comforter. –Janine O.
Thanks for the delicious and beautiful beans! They are the best! All other beans taste old to me now–yours are so fresh! –Hilde M.
Beautiful socks! Just received them today and they are prettier in person! Gorgeous work! –LaShelle G.
This handwoven rag rug is exactly what I wanted. I love the colors, and it was made beautifully. –Kerri L.
I’m loving these dryer balls! I’ve done several loads of laundry since they arrived and they’re doing a fabulous job. I’m so glad to be done with the hunt for a dryer sheet that we’re not allergic to! Thank you, thank you!…
Rancho Gordo’s got nothing on these guys! –Isabel S.
