Mark and Ashley Whitaker are the creative minds behind Good Wool Etc., a farm-based company that makes wool products.
The husband-and-wife team works from Whit’s End Farm in Thompson’s Station, where they produce handmade crafts and accessories, including coasters, jewelry, barrettes and more, out of wool from their very own Jacob sheep. Ashley does all of the hand felting, while Mark creates their rustic non-wool gifts, including wood products and enameled jewelry.
Good Wool Etc. sells its products primarily through Etsy, though the Whitakers occasionally attend fairs and festivals around the state. To browse their products, visit their Etsy shop online at etsy.com/shop/goodwooletc.
