Topsy Farms is a large sheep farm on Amherst Island, near Kingston, Ontario. Their fleeces are shorn each year in spring then shipped to PEI where many of therir products are created. The animals are ethically raised, on pasture. Wool is sustainable. It is washed using soap only, avoiding the sulphuric acid and other additives that usually make wool prickly. Their sheepskins come from Atlas Tanning in Ontario; sheepskin mitts from Hides and Hands, Ontario, and the mattress pads, comforters and wool pillows from Custom Woolen Mills of Alberta. They have 6 knitters producing woolen knit products.
