I had a great time shopping in the two story shop and I wish I had so much more room in my suitcase. I picked up a few items that will be great to have a home in Alberta. Everyone needs a spurtle don't they?

We visited the Lismore Sheep Farm & Wool Shop while vacationing in River John. It is a short drive from where we were staying. We loved the grounds and the store, which offered lovely wool products. Very educational!

We stopped by and got to see the sheep, some puppies and a beautiful little calf! We chatted with the employees of the store and had a really lovely visit! The items in the store are very unique and one of a kind!

Lovely shop and farm. We stopped on a mid September afternoon, there was nothing "extra" happening. However the shop was great. Beautiful knitting wools, felting wool, and fleece. I bought some shearing insoles for a pair of boots, waiting for the cold weather now! There...More
