At The Shop
Knitters are no strangers to dry, itchy hands. It seems like almost all of us have a bottle of our favorite hand lotion stashed in our project bag, another in our purse, another on the nightstand … and we’re always trying out new ones.
Windrift Hill makes a line of amazing products using goats milk from their own Nubian goats. A family-owned business based in Montana, Dick and Deena Maier began making soap in their kitchen when Deena, an occupational therapist at the time, saw a need for skin care products that wouldn’t irritate her clients’ skin the same as some medications. Using natural clay-oxides, herbs and oils along with the goats milk, they make 40 different types of soaps, five different scented lotions and nine types of body butter.
Their lotions absorb incredibly quickly and truly make a difference — even after several hand-washings, you can still notice a difference in the smoothness of your skin. Combine that with their amazing fragrances (“Relaxing” is a personal favorite) and you’re sure to replace every bottle in your project bags with Windrift Hill.
