High-quality materials for knitters and crocheters, with a focus on locally-sourced and sustainable products
by Anna Hunter
128-page softcover book
Across Canada, small-scale sheep farmers are on a mission to reinvigorate the domestic wool industry, raising sheep breeds that thrive in their regional climate and land base.
Learn about farmers' motivations, their dedication to climate-forward practices, and their passion for developing the infrastructure to ensure their wool is processed, milled, and used by businesses and hobbyists locally.
Journey alongside sheep farmer and wool educator Anna Hunter to explore the unique characteristics of the sheep breeds being raised from British Columbia to the Maritimes, and how the qualities of the wool from each is best suited to make items from garments to cold-weather accessories to home goods.

This year we're celebrating Sweet Paprika's 15th anniversary, and it's honestly been a bit hard to get my head around where the time has gone! We've been looking back through some of our old photos, and thought it would be fun to share a little retrospective here. Our little business has come a long way in the past 15 years!
Most of the images I'm including are not our polished product photos (although those have also come a long way since the early days), but more of a behind-the-scenes look at some of the memorable stepping stones along our journey.
