Our raw wool is shipped by rail across the country to PEI. At Macauslands it is cleaned, washed, carded, spun, dyed and finally woven into beautiful Queen size, 100% wool blankets. Each blanket is beautifully tagged with both Macauslands signature and ours making each a wonderful, meaningful item designed to last for generations.
Our raw wool is sent from the ranch to Carstairs Woolen Mill in Carstairs, Alberta. There is is cleaned, washed, carded, spun, dyed and processed into various items, including the wonderful knitted socks they make for our shops out of our wool.

Our grassfed beef tallow is the main ingredient in these wonderful soaps. A simple bar of our tallow soap lasts a long time. It is a hard bar soap which is beneficial because it cleans just the surface, not stripping your skin of its natural and very necessary oils. Our soap is especially amazing when it comets to hair care. One bar will last about a year of hair washing. The average woman in Canada spends over $700 a year on toxic chemicals and plastic packaging that go down the drain/into the land fill. Our family and many people who buy our soap have successfully waned off of all other hair products. We do not even need conditioner anymore as the soap is gentle and does not strip the oils from the hair. For $10 a year you can have healthy, waste-free hair!
