From their website:

We take great pride in our flock of Beaverslide Merino sheep, grown under wholesome and humane conditions. Our animals live in an essentially extreme climate, so their wool is noticeably “loftier” than that which is imported.

…We have…been to the mill in Canada many times and can assure you that it is environmentally responsible and produces quality products the old-fashioned way. The wool is processed naturally, in contrast to larger mills, which often treat the wool with harsh chemicals to dissolve vegetable matter, mothproof or superwash. It is also non-carbonized (not heated to extremely high temperatures to destroy plant matter). Wool doesn’t burn, but carbonizing apparently alters its molecular structure and creates a harsh product. In an effort to avoid this over-processing, a few flecks of straw remain in the product, but are easily removed as you knit.

The yarn is “mulespun”; mule spinning gives yarns characteristics all their own. The draw allows for a more uniform product, and the relaxation of the tension allows the yarn to “fluff up” more. Many experts consider the mule to make the very highest quality of handwork yarns.

We offer 47 selections of 2-ply worsted weight yarn. It knits to a gauge of approximately 4.5 to 5 stitches to the inch on size 6 or 7 needles. It is 90% fine Beaverslide wool and 10% kid mohair. The fine, kid mohair adds a soft sheen and enriches the color, without the scratchiness associated with mohair. There are approximately 241 yds. per 4 oz. skein. Included in this line are muted heathers, solids and 7 “all natural” choices.
