Our Farm, Our Products
Driftless Mercantile is the creative extension of Windridge Fiber Farm. We are located in the Driftless Region of Wisconsin, a beautiful area of rolling hills and rock outcroppings left untouched by glaciers that once covered the land. This area is rich in natural resources and deep rural farm tradition.
The nature around us, along with the farm and its inhabitants, provide inspiration for the variety of handmade gifts and keepsakes that we create. Most items are one of a kind or limited edition. All items make wonderful gifts, either for someone special or yourself!
Our flock of sheep supplies us with an array of beautiful wool fiber for the needle felted sculptures we make. Needle felted pieces are made from wool with wire armatures, a barbed felting needle, and a bit of patience. You may see similarities between some of the needle felted pieces and the animals on our farm which are often used as models for our needle felted wool animal creations. Our needle felted sculptures are meant for display, and they are not intended to be children's toys.
