The wild and wooly side of Circle M Farm is handled by Maidmarion Cottage Industries. When farm chores are light, Kriss gets busy in the Summer Kitchen Dye Studio. Wool and mohair are washed, dyed, dried and carded by hand, then brought into the farmhouse in fluffy clouds for Kriss to spin in front of the fire.
