The Cozy Guide: Creating Your Cold Weather Sanctuary

The Cozy Guide: Creating Your Cold Weather Sanctuary

We don’t know how the weather’s feeling where you are, but here at Shepherd’s Dream headquarters around the 42nd parallel, the days are growing shorter, the mornings have a chilly edge to them, and the leaves are beginning to fade out from the height of their summer green. You know what that means—it’s cozy time!

While wool is also a summer season rockstar, it’s an obvious choice for cooler temperatures. For millennia all over the world, wool has been the go-to fabric for warmth and insulation, and it does so with perfect breathability and moisture wicking performance. Our wool bedding items are made with USA-sourced EcoWool®, so you can rest assured that the wool comes from sheep who are ethically raised and humanely cared for, and the resulting products are chemical free, nontoxic, and hypoallergenic. We’re still not entirely sure how wool manages to do it all so well (we’re pretty sure it’s magic), but we’re just grateful. 

Pair that magical wool with some organic cotton, and you’ve got a bedroom dreams are made of. Here’s a spotlight on some of our best and most popular Fall and Winter items.

Greeting the Season

We’re still riding out the last of the summer vibes around here, but our thoughts are beginning to turn to the cooler days ahead. As much fun as it is to be on the go all day and soaking up all the goodness of the great outdoors, we also look forward to a little bit of downtime and restoration during the quieter colder months. We hope you’ve found something here to cozy up your space!
