Painting with Wool: How We Make Our Artisan Wool Pieces

 

The Artistry Behind Our Wool Pieces 

At JG SWITZER, our painter’s palette is provided by local and Heritage breed sheep.
We “paint with wool” using a locally farmed canvas of Dorset and Suffolk wool from Bodega Bay.  Our "oil pigments" are different breeds of sheep. Wensleydale, Bluefaced Leicester, Shetland, Navajo-Churro, Icelandic, Gotland and Romney Fleeces are a few of the breeds used in our one-of-a-kind pieces.

We design, sew, and mill every piece at our workshop in The Barlow, a maker space in West Sonoma County, an hour north of San Francisco.



Meet the local sheep whose wool we use as the canvas.
