BRANDON — What do you get when you mix a mother of three who had some sheep with an artistic hat maker in Vermont? Fabulousness, from the grass up.

Sam Stone of Brandon and Nora Swan of Ripton met five years ago when their sons were in the same play group. Two years into their friendship, Swan said she wanted to make something with sheep’s wool and Stone shared an idea she had to make baby booties, along with a book that told the story of each sheep in her small flock.
