Choosing Wool is a way to stay friends with the environment

sunshine autumn  

We all know that wool is a natural resource that runs on grass... this contributes to a textile that is sustainable, renewable, & biodegradable (unlike its synthetic counterparts). 


All of these qualities have a meaningful impact on the healthy future of our planet. Now that is friendly.

Ecologically sound, this pure, untreated, 100% chemically free wool is never offensive to our habitat.  So counting sheep actually creates better sleep!

 You can rest well in knowing that when choosing wool, one becomes a part of the solution towards saving our world. 

You can relax better in a bed that is of a benefit to our Mother Earth.

 Summer Harvest Recipes

Eggplant Marinara Flatbread

  • 4 tablespoons (about) olive oil, divided
  • 6 1/3- to 1/2-inch-thick eggplant rounds (3 to 4 inches in diameter; from 1 large)
  • 1 loaf ciabatta or pain rustique, cut horizontally in half, trimmed to 9-inch length
  • 1 1/4 cups purchased fresh marinara sauce
  • 2 ounces soft fresh goat cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil plus 6 whole leaves (for garnish)
  • 1 cup coarsely grated mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces)

  • Preheat oven to 400�F. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle eggplant with salt and pepper. Place in skillet. Cover. Cook until tender, turning, 10 minutes. Transfer to plate. Brush cut side of bottom half of bread with rest of oil. Cook in skillet, cut side down, until golden, 1 minute.
  • Place bread, cut side up, on baking sheet. Spread with 3/4 cup sauce. Crumble goat cheese over; sprinkle with chopped basil. Top with eggplant. Mound mozzarella on eggplant; spoon remaining sauce over.
  • Bake bread until topping is hot and crust is crisp, about 12 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces. Garnish with basil leaves.

Zucchini Fritters


Soy Dipping Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 pounds zucchini (about 3 medium), grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more for seasoning
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil


Soy Dipping Sauce
  • Mix vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and a pinch of red pepper flakes in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  • Place zucchini in a colander set in the sink and toss with 1/2 teaspoons salt. Let stand 10 minutes, then wring zucchini dry in a clean kitchen towel. Place zucchini in a large bowl and gently mix in egg, flour, chives, and cornstarch; season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in 2 batches, drop 1/4-cupfuls zucchini mixture into skillet, flattening slightly; cook until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined plate; season with salt. Serve with soy dipping sauce.

Pumpkin Wheat 
Honey Muffins

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan, or line with paper liners. Place the raisins in a cup, and add enough hot water to cover. Let stand for a few minutes to plump.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center, and put in eggs, pumpkin, oil and honey. Mix just until the dry ingredients are absorbed. Drain excess water from raisins, and stir in along with the walnuts. Spoon into muffin cups so they are about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake for 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool in the pan before removing from cups.

Sarah Sunshine has a baby!  


I am so excited to welcome my precious son, Solemon Sky into this world... 

...Born on his father's birthday, July 9th, in beautiful Mt. Shasta City, California!  

I have wanted to have a baby for as long as I can remember, so this is TRULY the greatest gift and blessing I could ever imagine. 

I thought I would take this newsletter as an opportunity to share some of my favorite baby products and mothering suggestions with you!

I am grateful to live in a time and place when an incredible variety of organic and natural products are available, so that I can raise my child in the healthiest way possible.  And of course, it is quite the bonus to have a natural bedding company so that I can make the best custom bedding for him to sleep with! 

It seems that a lot of the bedding, mattresses and clothing available for babies are made of synthetic, chemically treated materials that are terrible for their health and for the planet.  Luckily I am aware of this and have the ability to go all natural for my baby.  So far, my baby sleeps with us in our King size wool bed which is working out great!  He sleeps like a king and I love having him with me.  For when the time comes, we have his room set up with his crib, comprised of a Shepherd's Dream wool Crib Mattress, a Wool Mattress Protector, a Wool Filled Crib Comforter with an Organic Cotton Cover and Coyuchi Organic cotton fitted crib sheets, all inside of a Pacific Rim, pure maple bed frame...ooh la la! I wish I could fit in there;)

We have several other little sleep areas throughout the house that I have customized with wool including a Moses basket with several layers of wool felt cut to fit, a bassinet cradle with a custom made wool filled pad inside and a Mamaroo with a layer of felt to make it more breathable. And the most amazing wool creation of all, is a hand felted dolphin cocoon that our dear Logan, made for my little Sol.

It's all wool, it's all cozy and he loves it!  
We are happy to offer all of these products at Shepherd's Dream,  including custom bassinet and cradle cushions.

We are happy to offer all of these products at Shepherd's Dream,  including custom bassinet and cradle cushions.

There are some other baby products I am very happy with as well.  For his car seat, we went with the Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 30 infant car seat and then his Oma (my mother, Eliana)customized it by adding wool felt to make his riding experience extra comfy. He sleeps great in his car seat and smiles a lot in the car!

We like to keep him on us as much as possible, so we have enjoyed using the Ergo, the Moby and the Maya wraps.  He usually takes at least one of his naps while walking him in a carrier. He seems to like the Ergo the best, but they are all good wraps for different ages and times.   

In an attempt to be as environmentally conscious as possible, we have decided to go primarily with G Diapers with the reusable cotton inserts.  Not only are they less wasteful, but they are styling too:) 

Most all of our clothes have been hand me downs, but the organics that we have found and liked the most would be Under the Nile and Organic Natural Charm.  We also love the swaddles, towels and changing table covers by Aden + Aneis

In an effort to keep my breastfeeding going healthy and strong and to give papa and grandma's and opportunity to feed him too,  I am using the Purely Yours breast pump by Ameda which is easy to use and effective.  Last, but definitely not least, we don't know what we would do without our yoga balls, including our yoga ball chair by Isokinetics to calm Sol when he's feeling uncomfortable. Of course, the list goes on and on, but these are some of the most essential items we have found so far. 

In addition, I would recommend the following books to all new mothers and parents: The baby book by, The womanly art of breastfeeding, the Vital Touch & The Kind Mama.


  So far, I am amazed by how in love I am with this special little human who we created!  It has been the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life so far.  I look forward to this incredible journey of motherhood and will joyfully share my experiences with you in coming Shepherd's Dream blogs and newsletters.

Dear Shepherd's Dream Team,

I am writing to tell you what a wonderful 4 years my husband and I have had sleeping on your amazing bed. My husband is a tall man, 6' 7". He used to play sports in school and suffered a handful of injuries that creep up on him now & again. Before purchasing our bed from you, he was having a terrible time sleeping, and his back pain was becoming chronic. After doing more research than I ever want to embark on again, I finally decided on your complete Eastern King wool surround, with the latex strips on our slats. My husband's pain slowly diminished, and was completely gone within a month of sleeping on the new bed. We were giggling like kids when we were getting into bed at night for the first few weeks. The most amazing, luxurious softness ever- seriously! I was really nervous about ordering such an expensive product over the internet that I had never actually seen in person. But I went with my instincts and am so glad I took the leap of faith.

So, the products are absolutely fantastic (especially the 3" snuggle changing!). But I also wanted to mention how great all of your team has been to work with. I had numerous questions throughout the purchase process and they were all kindly answered with nothing but smiles and friendly, informative conversation- you guys are absolutely awesome. I worked with Sarah on my original purchase, and she was simply wonderful. Now, I just returned 4 years later to purchase a few more items that need to be refreshed on our bed, and had the pleasure of working with Justice. She was absolutely fantastic- so helpful and friendly. When we received our original bed shipment, I fell in love with all the little sweet drawings and messages on our tags. I knew our bed had been handcrafted with love and skill. You guys have got it going on!

Keep up the good work- so thankful for your company!


Sanford, FL


A wool bed is just too good for words!  

It offers me incredibly restorative rest and such dreamy comfort in a way that no sleep system has ever done before.  From the onset it was Love at first Sleep!  I could not imagine my life now without a wool bed in it.  Wool Felts, Wool Toppers, Wool Pillows & Wool Mattress... they have all been an absolute Joy to incorporate into the bedroom... Frequencies so pure and natural I would highly recommend this experience to anyone.  Deliciously calming it is in a wool bed; affording me the most sound sleep ever!  Pure & Natural Eco Wool & the Love felt within these hand created products has changed my life for the better!

~ Thank You Shepherd's Dream! ~

May these days be filled with abundance, beauty, love and joy and may all your greatest dreams come true.
