Janice and Bryan Lever are not sheepish about the success they have made of what was supposed to be a retirement project. Windblest Farm is a beautiful place located close to Ferguson Falls in Lanark County where the Levers sell their own tweed - a unique three-ply worsted weight knitting yarn in three colours.  They have developed their own washing system and a fabric wash sac for wool.  The farm employs a high school student during the summer and at shearing time, which helps them deliver the goods - from ‘sheep to shawl.’
