Historically, a millinery shop produced or acquired an inventory of garments for men, women and children, including hats, shirts, coats, dresses, caps, neckties and the like. Today, millineries typically are stores where hats are sold primarily to a female clientele.
The Millinery At Cornerstone Farm embraces the historical definition of the term and produces and sells items for all members of the family. Our distinctive clothing and accessories are made of luxurious, fine, natural fibers including soft wool from our flock of Shetland sheep.
A number of our products are made of repurposed clothing and fabrics. Used clothing such as coats, jackets, trousers and other items are recycled into practical, sensible and fashionable merchandise. Choosing to purchase items made of recycled materials will help in reducing the load placed on our landfill sites, thereby reducing the impact on the environment. The discarded clothing used in the production of our creations are acquired from local charity thrift shops, which helps in supporting the much needed services provided by these organizations.
Our products are made right here at The Millinery on a small scale, allowing for unique and one of kind garments and accessories made of natural, renewable fibres, mainly soft lamb's wool and kid mohair. We concentrate on felted hats, knitted accessories and the ever popular kid mohair socks. Our products are geared to all members of the family, including those involved in cold weather outdoor activities. Natural fibers are known for their warmth, durability and moisture wicking ability, making them an ever growing alternative to man-made fibers, and offer a much lower carbon footprint than petroleum based fibres.
