The sheep we raise are not wool sheep, but hair sheep which means we don’t shear them; their hair sheds naturally in the spring. When the lambs are butchered we send the lambskins off to a tannery and they produce beautiful and durable rugs, couch throws, car seat covers, crib and stroller liners or whatever you see fit to use them for!
The fleece of lambskin has excellent insulating properties and is also resistant to flame, dirt, moisture and static electricity. Lambskin is a natural insulator and has temperature-regulating properties, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This makes it a great choice for newborn babies that are learning to regulate their body temperatures. Lambskins have a soothing effect that can result in better sleep and since they are gentle on your skin, they are great for people with sensitive skin or babies that are prone to skin rashes. Wool is considered by the medical profession to be hypoallergenic.

While butter is making a comeback, rightfully reclaiming it's place from the usurper margarine, lard remains relatively reviled among the general public, despite the fact that it has a fatty acid composition similar to olive oil and is extraordinarily rich in vitamin D, as long as the pigs are pasture raised. Trim lard is the fat trimmed from the entire pig. It has a subtle back-note of meatiness that hydrogenated oils and even lard from the grocery store which is bleached and deodorized lacks. It's high smoke point (370F) makes it ideal for frying and it gives braised meats and vegetables a rich mouthfeel. When you purchase lard in this form, it will require rendering but it's super easy! See the FAQ section for instructions on how to do that.
