Covid 19 Response

Hello Topsy community.

We are living in unprecedented times, folks, and we all must do what we can to keep ourselves and our community safe. Things are changing quickly, and there isn’t a play-book.  It’s everyone’s job to help flatten the curve, and we’re taking steps to do our part.

We are actively discouraging visitors to the island, to protect our community and especially our most vulnerable demographic. We’re cancelling all events up to and including shearing. We’ll keep you updated on the rest of the season’s activities as the situation unfolds.

The Wool Shed is closed until further notice. The online store will remain open, and we are grateful to everyone who continues to shop. We will keep our products at the current price for the time being, rather than raising them as planned. We’re working on making available online all products that are currently only sold through the Wool Shed.

We know this is a frightening time, and we encourage everyone to be excellent to each other, and take care of yourselves. Reach out to your friends and family, stay connected to your community digitally. Go for a walk, meditate, take an online class or tour. Learn to knit. Support your local businesses by shopping online where possible (perhaps a gift card for someone less fortunate). Even if you don’t buy anything, liking/sharing/subscribing on social media helps. That kind of continued engagement encourages us all to keep going.

Stay calm, be brave, stay safe. We will get through this.

Team Topsy
