Happy Sheep = Happy Sleep

The Frankenmuth Woolen Mill is committed to bringing you the best night's sleep by making the best wool comforters and bedding. During our journey to make our product better we saw a chance to make our country and planet better too.

By purchasing our wool from certified Climate Beneficial ranchers through our friends at www.fibershed.com, we not only support American ranchers but also help the planet by buying wool from farms that have a negative carbon footprint.

In addition, the sheep that grow our wool are treated in a humane fashion. After they are shorn, they go back to graze and frolic with their flock only to return to the "barber" when their fleece is ready to be shorn again.

Sometimes one little change in your business can create a big change in your world.

A Gift to Last

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.
