Cangles: Our Story started with the observation that our once thriving neighborhoods were now home to poverty with dozens of boarded-up businesses, littered with refuse. We had the idea of creating bangles by recycling cans thrown away due to carelessness. How exciting to actually do something that positively impacts the environment! The bonus was we would be creating an affordable fashion accessory for you to wear – Fashionably Green Jewelry. Eventually, with enough sales, we could employ people from our community in need of jobs. And Cangles were born!

After two weeks replace the lure, or just add sweet liquid (lemonade works fine).
    
To clean: remove the stopper, empty, and rinse. Easy as can be!
    
Can be hung, or set on a flat surface. Wasps can fly up into the bottom even when it is sitting on the ground.

Why use hemp in the blankets?
    
Superior Properties
Hemp has been called the American version of bamboo.
    
Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable natural textile fibers. Products made from hemp will outlast their competition. Hemp is not only strong but it also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber on the market. This keeps hemp garments from stretching out or becoming distorted with long term usage. Hemp is known for its durability and also its comfort and style. The more hemp is used, the softer it gets. Hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in. Hemp is naturally resistant to mold and fading due to ultraviolet light. Because of its porous nature, hemp is more water absorbent, and will dye and retain its color better than any fabric including cotton. This porous nature allows hemp to “breathe,” so that it is cool in warm weather. Furthermore, air which is trapped in the fibers is warmed by the body, making hemp garments naturally warm in cooler weather, making it the perfect material to blend with cotton for a great blanket!
    
Environmental Advantages
Hemp is a fast growing crop and produces more fiber yield per acre than any other source. Hemp can produce up to 250% more fiber than cotton and up to 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land. Hemp grows best in warm tropical zones or in moderately cool, temperate climates, such as the United States. Hemp leaves the soil in excellent condition for any succeeding crop, especially when weeds may be troublesome. Where the ground permits, hemp’s strong roots descend for three feet or more. The roots anchor and protect the soil from runoff, building and preserving topsoil and subsoil structures similar to those of forests. Hemp does not exhaust the soil and hemp plants shed their leaves all through the growing season, adding rich organic matter to the topsoil and helping it retain moisture. Farmers have reported excellent hemp growth on land that had been cultivated steadily for nearly 100 years. There is a movement afoot to allow hemp to be grown as a legal crop in the United States.

Organic Cotton & Eco-Wool Mattress Topper


Holy Lamb Organics offers a unique line of natural handmade bedding products, featuring all organic cotton fabric and pure wool fill instead of synthetics or down.
       

Treat yourself to a luxurious nights’ rest by adding a quilted mattress topper! Holy Lambs Mattress Toppers are filled with soft, pure organic eco-wool nibs lined with a soft, organic cotton fabric cover. Eco-wool is easier to wash than conventional wool products because the entire perimeter is hand tufted every 6-8” to prevent the wool from shifting around during the wash cycle. Eco-wool is incredibly absorbent and will wick moisture away and keep you dry at an even temperature while you sleep. As an added benefit, eco-wool will never harbor dust mites because dust mites don’t like wool!       

This mattress topper is available in several gradients of thickness depending on your preference for softness. Choose from 2” (Deep Sleep) or 3” (Ultimate Deep Sleep) generous inches of pure, eco-wool filling.
       

These mattress toppers are compatible with any depth mattress. The topper sits on top of the mattress. With a fitted sheet on top of the mattress pad, they do not slip but stay nicely and evenly on the mattress. The manufacturer has found that this design provides a better fit and works better than toppers which are fitted to account for any depth mattress since the fitted ones can either be too tight or have extra material that slips around if the mattress is too deep or not deep enough.
       

All mattress topper sizes are available in all thickness options. Please note that King 2″ and Twin through King 3″ must be professionally cleaned as they are too big for a washing machine.
