Wool Comforter Processing

From Great Wool Comes Great Sleep

Our commitment to quality products and great sleep starts with our wool. We scoured the country to find ranchers who not only treat their sheep humanely, but also share in our passion of providing all natural materials and products that are made in the USA.

This Climate Beneficial wool, when coupled with our mill's century old equipment, provides the layers of all natural wool goodness that separates our bedding from more modern imitations on the market today.

Wool Washing

Our process starts with the wool being cleaned with a biodegradable soap and washed and rinsed with water fresh from the Great Lakes, namely neighboring Lake Huron.

Wool Processed on Original Machines

The pristine wool is then transferred on to our classic carding machines that use steam and humidity in place of often used chemicals. From these rolling relics come the layers of soft, healthy wool that is now ready to serve as the fluffy filling of your new wool bedding.

Wool Being Tied

From the carding room, the wool is delivered upstairs to the Mill's finishing area. Here the wool is hand tied between layers of soft, Certified Organic cotton muslin. The Mill's professional finishers then take great care to hand place a tie approximately every nine inches. This insures that the wool stays in place and that your comforter or mattress topper is truly one of a kind.

Wool Comforter Being Sewed shut

The edges of the bedding are then sewn and inspected before it is carefully folded ,bagged and awaiting prompt shipment to your home.
