Fun Songs for Sheep Peeps

From Motown to Christmastown

Our Frankenmuth Woolen Mill is a part of a small community that is one of Michigan’s most popular tourist attractions. Located an easy hour and half drive north of Detroit the city of Frankenmuth shines brightly as America’s Christmas Town.

Decades before Detroit became the Motor City the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill was built and opened in downtown Frankenmuth, MI.

As Detroit flourished it became known for much more than automobiles. The city’s list of monikers grew to include “The Arsenal of Democracy”, “The Paris of the Midwest”, “Hockey Town” and maybe the easiest on the ears nickname of “Motown”.

Through the past 124 years the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill has been providing “wool bedding” hits that have topped the beds of sleepers all over the country.

Keeping Sheep Safe

Keeping Sheep Safe

Here at the Frankenmuth Woolen Mill, the sheep help us sleep at night, whether we’re counting them; nestling under cozy comforters made from their fleeces; or resting our heads on a scrumptious wool pillow. But how do our farmers sleep, when sheep are such delectable prey for so many predators come nightfall? Depending...
A Gift to Last

A Gift to Last

Summer’s here. And with it come so many good intentions: plans to spend more time in the garden; to find extra weekends to escape to that lake on the edge of the northern woods; to go fishing; take a few camping trips, or enjoy more picnics at the beach. But before we can even scan the weather forecast to choose the best days to go, our mailbox fills with birth announcements, graduation announcements, and wedding invitations.
The Dryer Ball Story

The Dryer Ball Story

How do they work? Basically, when you add a load of clothes to the dryer, all that wet fabric wants to clump together, even as the dryer tumbles it about. When you toss a few wool balls in with a load, they tumble around and pull the fabrics apart, continuously fluffing them, enabling the dryer’s hot air to circulate more efficiently through the clothing to evaporate the moisture.
