Goat Milk Soap
This is a good, "old fashioned" straight forward real bar of soap. Just oils, goat milk and lye grace this simple bar that is great for folks that are sensitive to either fragrances or colorants. I like this bar so much I use it as a shampoo and shower bar.
About Small Maker Farm:
Welcome to Small Acre Farm! Ours is a small working farm at the foot of the front range in Northern Colorado. I’m TeDi, the Chief Shepherdess. Five years ago I lost my job and I have been full time on the farm ever since. We’ve lived on this farm for a decade now and, although we lived on two other farms before this, our sheep and goat stories began here. The goat milk soap came first as a way to manage 5 gallons of milk a day in our second year of the goat adventure. The sheep came next, a hobby initially, but as their fleece piled up I became interested in spinning, weaving, knitting and dyeing. The fiber has take over the house, my life and now a good part of the business.
Recently, I realized that it wasn’t feasible for me to spin enough yarn to both sell and create with, and went looking for yarn that would meet our sustainable philosophy and land stewardship expectations. I had been a fan of Timber and Twine for many years when Annah posted that she was looking for someone to take it on so that she could focus on her own sustainability efforts. Timber and Twine’s philosophy was so similar to ours and the gorgeous botanically dyed yarn from India was breathtaking. Timber and Twine Harvest Wool Yarn became a part of Small Acre Farm in the summer of 2019.
Not long after the Harvest Wool Yarn found a home on our farm, I knew I wanted to add a botanically dyed cotton yarn to the family. I did lots of research and settled on Pichinku, anther gorgeous small batch, botanically dyed yarn, sourced from a small group of women artisans in Cusco, Peru. The first batch arrived this fall and surpassed all expectations.
We will continue the tradition of creating things inspired by the resources of our farm, focusing on sustainability, natural materials and traditional crafts. Preserving and passing on heritage craft skills is so important and bringing these fair trade yarns into our shop, as a compliment to our farm grown fiber, allows us to support ancient crafts and communities both near and far.
